Your days are numbered, kids!


Say goodbye to the swimming pool, the beach, summer camp and staying up late. Back to school time is just around the corner - or maybe has already begun for some of you. For kids, this is devastating news but for parents it might be a sigh of relief. Even more so for work - at - home'ers who have had to balance their home based jobs with their home-from-school kids.

As I prepare to send my own little ones back to school, I find it bittersweet. I will miss them. But I look forward to the quiet days too. (Incidentally, you might notice that I publish more blogs after September - mostly because nobody will be asking me to make them peanutbutter and jelly or take them Disney World.)

There is an added benefit to back-to-school time that you might not have thought of: work at home job opportunities in the education field. Just think of all the businesses and services that gear up for this busy time - tutoring services, retail, school and universities, etc. Opportunities are everywhere, and the timing is perfect for moms and dads who now have the time to commit to a new venture.
