Milana Leshinsky started her first home business in 1994, making cute magnetic hats for 20 cents a piece. After two months she realized that she wasn't a work-at-home mom... more like a slave-at-home mom, making less than $5 an hour. What a disappointment. And this realization is not uncommon for women starting a business at home.
One of reasons this horrific experience comes to pass is that women do not realize how many incredible opportunities there are for having a home based business via internet.
Six years after this first self-employment experience, after having her second child, Milana tried becoming a work-at-home mom again. This time her business has outgrown any expectations, any predictions and any hopes she has ever had on becoming a home-based mom.
She didn’t just do “okay”, she is completely successful.
Milana's first order arrived in February 2001. In April of 2002 she quit her job - job that only a few years ago (after graduating from college) she called her "dream job". "My business brings as much as my salary did, I work only a few
hours a day, AND I actually get to raise my children", Milana says.
This is one of many common themes you hear from women in home based businesses. But it is not only one.
"Women own and run over one-third of 14.2 million home-based
businesses in United States", says IDC Research Company (www.idcresearch.com). Yet, a very small number of these women own an Internet-based business. Those that do have an online business will agree that it is BEST home business for work-at-home mothers.
Why? Here are just a few of benefits that other home-based
businesses can not offer you:
- It has biggest potential at a minimum investment.
- Your business schedule is 100% flexible.
- You can work as little as 3 hours a day & still be successful.
