I love the fact that I run my own small business from home around my kids, I almost feel it has been the guilt free option (for me anyway)

I would recommend that if you can work from home make to do it!

I don’t earn as much as I would if I was working outside of the home but by the time you take I to account day care fees I think it equals out!

There are lots of ideas out there, I run a handmade business and I am always busy so my income is very much steady (though it didn’t start out that way)

There are two main sites to sell your handmade goodies, madeit.com.au and etsy.com!

  • You are so lucky! I just read on here of a mum debating the ‘return to work or not’ question. I wish I could have done what you’re doing. Definitely the best of both worlds!


  • It was always my dream to work from home.


  • I’d like to run my own business but don’t know where to start. All businesses I’ve looked into require a driver’s licence and I don’t have one.


  • good and nice story


  • Would love to have my own business but no idea on what to make and sell.


  • That’s nice that your business is working out well for you.
