Your youngest daughter is not yet school-age and is still at home, but at least one daughter is out of the way now. Now you must catch up with the seemingly endless e-mails in your inbox. Who are you? You are a WAHM, or work-at-home mom.
WAHMs run a sizable percentage of the small business websites we find online today. Why have so many busy mothers entered the world of online business entrepreneurship?
While every mom’s circumstances are unique, most do it for two main reasons. First, they want to stay at home so as to best perform their parenting responsibilities.
Plus, they may find that the demands of the corporate world are overwhelming and downright nerve-racking. The promise of a home-based business is to be able to control one’s workday and have greater flexibility in scheduling.
At the same time, they may find it hard to make ends meet on just their spouses income. Therefore, their only choice is either to go back to work or find a way to work from home.
