It gives them the opportunity to be available to their children while still building a business and bringing in extra needed income. A home based business is most successful when family members support the venture. Enlisting their help and support will not only help you, but it will make them feel they are part of your world and that you value their contribution.

Here are some of the things that they can do to help and support your home-based venture:

Household Chores:

Family members often assume that because Mom works at home it is easy for you to keep up with the household chores. Unfortunately you might feel the same way. But, even if you multi-task well, it is something that should be handled by the whole family. It is important for you to block out a certain amount of time for your home-based business and focus on it completely during that time. If you worked out of the house before, consider keeping the same family involvement in household chores that you had prior to starting your home business. If you have always been home, start viewing yourself as a business owner with responsibilities outside of the family and share household chores with family members.

Seek Your Spouses Support: Having your spouse 100 percent behind your decision to undertake a home-based venture is essential. Discuss all aspects of the decision prior to jumping in. Listen to his ideas and concerns objectively. Share your business plan, budget plans and any other backup materials so that he will have the whole picture. He will undoubtedly appreciate your desire to be at home for the children. Work to secure his support to avoid being at odds over your decision.

Have a Contingency Plan: It is really important to have a plan in place should something unexpected arise. Even when you are operating a business out of your home, it is necessary to have a plan for emergency situations, such as a sick child or an unexpected deadline. Sit down with your spouse and children, depending on their ages, and discuss what should be done in emergencies. For example, if a child is sick and you have a deadline, will your husband be willing to take the day off to care for your child? If you can't pick up the children from school, are their grandparents available to pitch in? You will need a support system and putting one in place before you need it will help you succeed in your business.

Working at home can be a wonderful opportunity for you and your family. But it is important to recognize that it is not always as easy as it looks from the outside. Diving into a home-based venture will undoubtedly create difficulties that you had not foreseen. Before you go full speed ahead, take the time to discuss the decision from all angles with your family to make sure it is right for you. When you are sure of the decision, then you can dive into the opportunity and begin to earn income and spend more time with your children as well.

Working at home can provide moms with the best of both worlds. The time we are able to spend with our children as they are growing up is time well spent and will always be cherished by parent and child alike. But sometimes financial obligations make this difficult. A home based venture can do both, just take the time to make sure it is right for you.
