HomeWork: Juggling Home, Work, and School Without Losing Your Balance: A Review

I recently had the opportunity to review this E-Book from the The Old Schoolhouse, and I was pleasantly surprised at how applicable it was to me.

In the current economy, I imagine that there are a lot of Moms who are considering earning extra income without leaving the home, and I'm one of them. However, as a homeschooling mother of three young children, I never really believed that it was do-able for me. How in the world could I manage my family, my children's education, our home, and everything that a business entails?

This book answers that question through the stories of several different homeschooling, work-at-home families who not only manage this kind of lifestyle, but enjoy it and have grown closer together through it. The families in this book cover a wide variety of home-based businesses and offer lots of practical tips and advice on getting started and succeeding in your own business venture. You'll read about a family-run farm and B&B, a direct sales consultant, a travel-agent Mom, a t-shirt printing business, online companies, and much more. You'll also see how many of these families involve their children in their businesses and the many learning benefits that they reap from that experience.

If you're looking for encouragement and advice on starting a home-based business and incorporating it into your homeschooling lifestyle, then HomeWork would be a great resource for you. You can check it out at The Old Schoolhouse Store.
