First, it is not easy to work at home with small kids running around. But it can be done. If you schedule your time well and stick to your schedule you should be able to juggle being a mom with being a working mother.

Second, figure out which tasks can be done when your children are under your feet. Then figure out what ones need to be done when they are taking their naps or playing outside. Writing usually goes in the latter category.

Third, stop your social media participation. Your activities here could and will cut into your productive work time. It is best to keep these activities to a minimum until all your work is done.

Fourth, make adjustments to your cleaning and cooking times. Cut these down to where they are manageable leaving you more time to do your work.

Fifth, stop feeling guilty. Being a work at home mom does not stop you from being a good mother. You can do both without sacrificing any quality time for your work or your kids.

    Hi, Strahinja,

    Those are some excellent recommendations. I think not only moms could benefit from them, but also students and people looking to supplement their income. Well, they could transition to full-time jobs.

    I had a friend who worked at home. She was an interpreter. She had to translate calls between English and Spanish speakers. That’s an excellent job to do at home.

    Another option could be document translator. You can do it in the comfort of your own home and it’s quite flexible.

    Thanks for sharing.
