I know a lot of wives and mothers who are considering staying at home and just spending their time with their family. In the past, working at home does not usually provide a stable source of income for the family so that fear of that uncertainty is one of the reasons that stop other women from taking the plunge.
For those who discovered the power of internet technology, they had learned that the internet is not only a valuable source of information on how to work from home, it has become the main tool for others in their quest to being a WAHWM.
Among the jobs online that WAHWMs did are usually internet related works such as data entry, virtual assistant, home based businesses, phone answering, online paid surveys and blogging; therefore, it is important that one have the proper equipment such as computer or laptop, printer, reliable and stable internet access, phone/fax machine. I also suggest opening a different email address just for your online job (including Facebook and Twitter accounts).
Because the internet if full of scams and frauds, it is important to use a lot of common sense in all your undertakings. Do not fall for get rich quick schemes because more often than not, these are just programs that will leave you poorer than what you were before joining them. Always research about the company first and get information on their products and track record of payment.
