Summer Survival Tips for Work at Home Moms

Summer Survival Tips for Work at Home MomsBy Christy Schutz

There is roughly a month left of school where we live. What that means is I’ll have a break from the stressful, activity-filled school days and a reprieve from the driving here to there at a frenzied pace. But it also means that the work at home environment will change quite a bit. There are going to be some extra souls to contend with at home and that usually means more noise, more interruptions, and eventually some frustrated feelings for both me and my children.

I truly love my children, but by the end of the summer, I can sometimes find myself frazzled and counting down the minutes until school starts. So, in an effort to skip the stress I’ve decided to plan and have a strategy in place before that last school bell rings! As a result, I’ve compiled the following tips to help myself and Work at Home Women everywhere have a productive and peaceful summer break:

Tip 1.) Take a Vacation


I know that sounds kind of silly, but, you DO need a break. Family vacations are practically an American pastime. And truly, nothing is better than building memories together as a family. You are probably thinking that you already work from home, so, how much of a break do you really need. Well, I feel strongly that all of us, yes, even we work at home women need to step away from our work and recharge. I feel so passionately about this I have even dedicated a post to it in the past … check it out. (more…)

Work From Home as a Local Coordinator for Exchange Students

Work From Home as a Local Coordinator for Exchange StudentsBy Holly Reisem Hanna

I’m always on the lookout for new work at home jobs and opportunities. One that I recently stumbled across is for Local Coordinators (LC) for student exchange programs.

Want to know more?

Here’s the scoop on what it is and where to apply.

What is a Local Coordinator (LC)?

Local Coordinators are independent contractors who go out into the community visiting schools, churches, and various youth programs in search of families who are interested in hosting foreign exchange students. Besides finding safe hosting families for students, you also act as a point of contact and mentor to the students while there are here in the U.S.

What Skills and Qualifications Do I Need?

Most organizations require that you be at least 25 years of age and you must have a clean criminal background check, since you’ll be working with teens. The ideal candidate for this work at home opportunity would be someone who enjoys traveling and learning about new cultures, is outgoing, friendly, and likes to work with teenagers. All of the companies that I looked at had various forms of training for their LCs, as well as ongoing support. (more…)

8 Places to Find Work-at-Home Opportunities in Your Own Town

8 Places to Find Work-at-Home Opportunities in Your Own TownBy Diana Schneidman

One of the obvious benefits of working at home is that it doesn’t matter where your employing company is located. You have a worldwide market for your services.

Given that there are certain benefits to having international opportunities, why would you prefer to work for a local company?

There are several pluses to working locally even if you do the actual work from a desk right in your spare bedroom.

The first advantage is that it may be easier to land the job. You may already have personal connections with the hiring manager. Even if you don’t have an “in” right now, it may still be easier to set your sights on what you want and go after it.

The second advantage is that you may be more effective on the job. You have easier access to your supervisor and coworkers. You may be able to attend occasional staff meetings and trainings.

The third advantage is that you may be able to develop personal relationships with coworkers in your company. One downside to working out of your home is that it can be lonely. You can work in the same position for years without developing ties to others. If you are the type of person who relishes friendships, being local can facilitate meeting coworkers for lunch or happy hour. (more…)

How to Explain That Working From Home Isn’t All Fun and Games

How to Explain That Working From Home Isn’t All Fun and GamesBy Sarah Pike

Working from home can seem like a dream come true. Imagine days luxuriating in bed until noon, trading in power suits for cozy pajamas, and never having to wait to binge on your latest Netflix obsession. At least that’s the fantasy image many of my friends envisioned when I first traded in my desk job to work from home full-time.

Alas, it’s not all fluffy pillows and bonbons. And it’s harder than people realize to balance the unstructured freedom with the focus needed to make working from home a successful venture. But for those who can make it work, there are a bounty of benefits including higher productivity and lower overall stress.

Whether employees make the transition from going into the office every day to telecommuting for their current employer, or decide to completely break out on their own, working from home is becoming more common across the country. But even though more companies and cities are embracing remote workers, the average American seems to have a hard time grasping the concept and understanding how working from home is still a “real job.”

If you currently work from home, or are seriously considering it, but don’t know how to get your friends and family on board here are the top five things I’ve learned. For everyone in your life who doesn’t quite get it, share this peek at what working from home REALLY means – and why it’s tougher than it seems. (more…)
