Category: Homeschooling for working parents
How does a homeschooler balance teaching their children alongside working at home?
Let's face it – these are tough economic times! Some homeschoolers have to find ways to supplement their income. Add in that some homeschoolers are single parents and have to work, and we have a group that needs support in this area.
In addition to finding the balance between lesson planning and fulfilling your job duties, there is the fact that if you communicate with clients you need some quiet area to work in for at least part of the day. How do you shut the door and still be present for your children?
Organization plays a key role in all of this – but how do you GET organized?
What if you need to supplement your income, and you just want something that doesn't make you sell products to your friends and neighbors? What kind of work at home opportunities are out there for homeschoolers which will allow flexibility and control of your days and your hours?
Well, we invited Heidi Totten to come and discuss all of these topics and more with the homeschool community in the 2014 Not Back to School Summit
Heidi Totten is the owner of two businesses – Inspire the Sprouts and Launching Women, as well as a serial entrepreneur, but her main role is homeschooling her two children, ages 8 and 11. She first felt the pull to homeschool when her son was born, but in 2007 helped start a charter school where her children attended for a couple of years until the pull was too strong. They began their homeschool journey in early 2012 and haven't looked back. Heidi works with multiple business owners and specializes in helping homeschoolers to get organized and get their businesses launched and under control, all while homeschooling their children!
Her webinar replay is now available for our upgraded Plus members and can be found here (you need to be logged in):
Work at Home Balance while Homeschooling
aired Sept 13th – http://hecoa.com/balancing-work-at-home
Running a business while homeschooling requires some serious time management! Are tough economic times forcing your family to re-evaluate homeschooling? Are you someone who is facing the difficulty of deciding to take on work at home, or looking for some ideas on how to supplement your income, and you can’t seem to balance it all while educating your kids at the same time? Perhaps you are thinking you are going to have to send your kids back to school in order to focus on the income? Stop beating yourself up – you CAN work at home while educating your children. Heidi has created a system that allows her to manage both, and is now teaching that system to other homeschooling families. In this webinar, Heidi is going to reveal to you some genuine ideas for working at home (which are not MLM’s), setting up the work environment, and achieving that balance so that you can still keep your kids at home and provide them the top notch education and safe haven you want for them.
