I have wanted for along time to do a series on work from home opportunities for Mom’s. It is something that is really close to my heart. I have all through our marriage always done something to bring in a little extra money. I have made jewelry, had a little ceramic business and as a licensed stylist cut hair from home. Many times it was just “fun” money and other times it really made a difference in our lifestyle. I consider couponing a wonderful “part time” job, but sometimes and especially in this economy, you need a little more.
If I am unable to work certain days due to being out of town, a holiday, or sick. I just let them know in plenty of time so they can find another care giver or make other arrangements. I run a business out of my home but I keep in min
d that I actually work for each of my clients and I so, I try to be available for their needs. 90% of the time the care is given on a set schedule, however, there is that occasional call from a parent needing to drop off their child for a few hours or so, and typically its not a problem. I can have up to 3 clients at a time. So, I really can’t answer that question. It varys month to month. I will say that I started at $9.00 an hour and since then I have recieved a small pay increase.
