Working from home is now viewed by a growing number of moms as their ticket to realizing their full potential. With growing children, a home business is a chance to create a better balance between family and career. It also means freedom from the daily commute to work and the traffic.

For a lot of moms, however, the financial benefits of working at home are very attractive. The amount of money that you could earn is now directly proportional to your own performance, without waiting for a boss to give you a raise or promotion. Whether your home business provides you sole means of support or a secondary income, its earning potential now depends on your determination and willingness to work at it.

What’s more, people who have been frequently shut out of the job market likehomemakers, students, retirees, and the disabled, to name a few — can use their home business to create new income opportunities. To a mom with two or three kids, being self-employed and making $40,000 or $50,000 a year looks a whole lot better than being “employed” at $5.50 per hour.

In addition to the money you can earn by working at home, there’s also the money you can save. By working at home, you automatically save money on clothes, lunch out, transportation expenses, and day care costs. The reductions in the cost of transportation, business lunches, wardrobe, and children’s day care are cause for celebration.

Think what you can save if you do not drive to the office every day. Simply by eliminating the need to commute to and from work, the home business mom stands to realize savings ranging from a few hundred to several thousand dollars a year.

Where a traditional business may struggle, a home enterprise can not only survive, but also prosper.
