    Default Own business/ work from home?

    Just wondering if there were many SAHM that have there own business, whether it be making cupcakes, baby beenies, Tupperware, bed linen parties, amway etc..... Any line of direct selling....
    Do you like it? What do you do? Do you find it profitable ? Do you do parties or certain things for advertising to improve your business?
    Very curious as alot of these things are popping up everywhere and it always amazes me when people have such a god work/life balance!

    I am a SAHM and have my own business. I am a print broker or print consultant which means I organise any type of printing for my customers from screen printing t-shirts to embroidery to letterheads, business cards. I also do websites.

    And I have an eBay store where I sell all the clothing that I use to print on like Hoodies, Jackets, etc, etc!

    I have to say it is hard work. I pretty much work 7 days a week and in amongst looking after kids. DD is now 8 months and bless her cotton socks she does require more attention then her brothers (one in Grade 1 and one in Kinder).

    Right now its at a good place. I bascially earn enough to pay the mortgage each month.

    Once DD is in kinder I can then ramp it up and actually search for work as right now I just wait for it to come to me.

    My website is enough to gain me enough business as people will usually search for 'printing' and their local area as people like to get something thats close to them.

    Work/life balance? I try very hard! Sometimes it doesnt work and mostly it does. I feel I am very lucky to be able to work from home as I do.
