I have been work at home and do some offline business since 2005. It has been four years since I have started working at home for money. Of course, you can do all your work or making money ventures at your home sweet home seat. But, having the work pressure in our head, home will not be sweet anymore. Literally, we are changing our home environment to office type of environment. My mum always remind me that, whenever you back home from office, you should leave outside the all your work affairs, pressure, problems, pending works, before entering the house. Entering house with all this in mind after work with so tired, will only cause trouble to the family. It helped me to build a good family bonds.
Also, it is not good to show the anger of workplace to our closed ones in the family right. Since I have started my home business, I can’t really follow that rules. It is like you are on your work while taking care of your house and family members. Of course, you just need two hours to write few quality posts and few more hours to build some traffic to your blog. At least 4 to 5 hours a day needed to spend on one blog to see some money. With all this responsibility when you are at home, finding 4 or 5 hours a day is not easy.
Getting a maid can help you a lot. Remember, maid is just helping hand that will work with us to manage the house and cleanliness and not our slaves. I don’t really like to have a maid because there won’t be any privacy and my son won’t get the attachment he should get with his parents. I want to spend most of my time with him. Children only will be with us until certain age. At age 4, 3 hours at kindergarten. At age 7, 8 hours at school and few more hours doing other curricular activities. If could see, there won’t be much time that we can spend one they start schooling. It will be worse if they go to Universities or start working. So, the best time that we can spend our quality time with our children is at their young age that is before they step to school.
I’m those of you who are doing full time work at home might face some other problems. Share your struggles and how you have overcome it here.
