The Series: How to Run a Business from Home Part Two -Homeschooling-

Be & Stay Empowered!

If you have thought about to offer to homeschool for other children than your own, you have actually thought very well. This certainly can be a business opportunity for you when working from home.


First, give it some good Thoughts and do your Research

When you know that homeschooling other people’s kids are that what you want and you feel confident enough by doing so, then go for it.

Note by the Author:  I do know that here in North America it is possible and even allowed to homeschool your child. However, there a certainly different requirements, rules and regulation in how to do it. This may differ from province or state and sometimes also from municipalities. If you are determent by offering homeschooling, do your research in the region you are living in. Ask questions first.

For a better understanding of what does it take to do homeschooling, especially other children, I use the information applying to the Province of Ontario Canada.

How is it done in the Province of Ontario?

To be an educational daycare provider or a full-day tutor, you are living in a “no reporting” area when you live in Ontario. What does it mean?

It means, that in the Province of Ontario you are very lucky because the only step you have to do when homeschooling your own child is to write a letter of intent to the local school board you belong too. Continue reading The Series: How to Run a Business from Home Part Two -Homeschooling-

If you are a trained professional chef, you already know what catering means and what it takes to have it as a business.

However, if you are a person who loves cooking/baking and you are really good at it, you certainly can establish a catering business from home.

You only have to make a few things crystal clear for yourself before putting yourself out there.

But, as always get acquainted first with the regulations and rules for your country, province or state when starting a catering business.


Specify your Catering Business

There are so many possibilities for catering that you really have to make your pick what you want. It is always a smart solution to start small and increase over time. Continue reading The Series: How to Run a Business from Home Part Three -Catering-

The Series: How to Run a Business from Home Part One -Daycare-

Be & Stay Empowered!


In this series, I like to show you how you can run a business from home in different occupational categories.

Today, I talk about DAYCARE.

Do you have children of your own or just love children?

If this is the case and you want to have a business by working from home, this could be something you might consider doing.

Taking care of children certainly requires absolute a matured attitude on your part. Taking care of someone else’s child involves lots of responsibilities and honest commitment.

After all, you are responsible for the children’s safety and well-being when they are in your custody.

If you can provide all this and thought of doing it as a full or part-time business, then go for it and get more information about the requirements.

The requirements for running a daycare service

Every country, province or state, even municipalities, has their own rules and regulation for running a daycare and being licensed. Continue reading The Series: How to Run a Business from Home Part One -Daycare-

 How to Create a Website?wordpress-website

First, you need to find a reliable, non-expensive, Website Hosting Platform like:

Most of these hosting platforms have a Free Website option, which is always good when you are just starting out because there are No Costs involved.

There are thousands of website themes you can choose from, but when you go with the Free website option and not a paid one, you will have limited access, meaning, you only can choose from a half a dozens or so.

Which is still pretty good, though. Continue reading How to Create a Website

Why do Women stay at Home?

Be & Stay Empowered!


Why do women stay at home and what is the most reason for this? The answer in many cases would be due to pregnancy, childbirth and raising children. Here are some statistics from

 How many Stay-at-Home Moms does America have?

According to, about 5 Million in married-couple family groups in 2013. 24% of married-couple family groups are with children under 15 years of age. This number went up by 3% from 21% in 2000.

In comparison with other moms, the stay-at-home mom in 2007 was:

  • Younger, 44% of women were under the age of 35 compared with 38% of moms in the labor force = a difference of 7%
  • Hispanic, 27% compared with 16% of moms in the labor force = a difference of 11%
  • Foreign-born, 34% compared with 19% of moms in the labor force = a difference of 15%

Without a high school diploma, 19% versus 8% of moms in the labor force = a difference of 11%

More numbers:  There are about 10 million of Single Moms in America living with children younger than 18 years of age in 2013. This went up by 3.4 million since 1970.

Other possible reasons why women stay-at-home

In 98% of families, it is a woman who will stay at home with the children. No questions asked. The assumption that this is the case leads to some (common) theories:

photo with quote

  • Women are better suited as a caregiver, therefore they have more of an interest in staying at home
  • Women still earn less money than men (in most cases) and if it becomes an issue to take care of the children because a babysitter is unaffordable than the woman will quit her job without much resistance
  • Unfortunately, we are still living in a society that will see mothers (this is still the norm) staying at home rather than fathers, no questions asked why
  • Women are more guilt driven if it comes to the question if both parents are working may have a negative impact on their children and therefore will quit their job easier than a man would do
  • Men are still being seen as the main breadwinner and feel mainly guilty if they can afford their women to stay at home with the children, because their income alone may not support the family.
  • Religious and societal expectations can make it hard for a woman to join the labor force period
  • Women also will likely take care of a disabled family member or due to an illness of a loved one and therefore will stay at home.  No questions asked.

There is an advantage too for  women to stay- at- home

Unfortunately, most women won’t see the advantage in what being a stay-at-home mom can bring to them and that it isn’t a total loss of not being out there with other women joining the labor force.
