I'm new to working from home, and could use some support. I have 3 kids and they are homeschooled. I have been a nurse for the past 9 years, but after the birth of my 6 month old, I decided I needed to work from home. I'm a loan consultant, since my husband is a realtor, we thought that would work out, and I have a great trainer/boss. I also just started working with Barefoot Books to get extra moeny. However I'm a little overstressed right now. I didn't realize how hard it is to work from home!
I would love any ideas and suggestions to make this work out!
Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

Mom to 3 great kids!

Hi Jennie Welcome to the Board

There are a lot of us in similar situations - I also have 3 kids, one in second grade, a 21 month old and a 3 month old and I agree it can be crazy trying to work from home and maintain family sanity. I'm personally trying to set myself a schedule (and I haven't been very good at it) for the time of day that I will work my business and the time of day that I will NOT work my business.

I'm also open to suggestions -

I hope you find great friendship and advice here on the board - its a great place!
