Looks like all a working mom wants for Mother’s Day this year is a little flexibility!? And let’s just preface this whole discussion with an important disclaimer: All Moms are working moms!
But for our purpose here, we’re talking about moms who have a job they do to earn money in addition to the incredible task of mothering.
Asked to prioritize six “work situations” in a survey released just last week and conducted by professional job-matching service TheLadders, more than 250 women who are or soon will be working moms said they value flexible hours (44%) more than anything else, even having more maternity leave. Furthermore, 29% said they would like the ability to work from home.
Say no more…
Given that the desire for flexibility is at such a premium once a woman becomes a mother, moms who are facing the relatively new challenge of balancing family with the need or desire to make money owe it to themselves to look into the idea of starting their own home-based or other small business. It just so happens that having the ability to set your own hours is one of the greatest perks of being your own boss. Plus, many of these opportunities offer a proven business model and the ongoing support that allow and encourage you to work from the comfort of your own home office, while making a pretty great living.
If you’re a mom who is interested in creative new business ideas for women, we encourage you to take a closer look at all the exciting home-based and other small business opportunities and franchises currently available on BusinessOpporunity.com!
