As more and more women are finding opportunities to work from home, it’s important to remember that earning a living from your couch, isn’t all fun and games. You’ll still need to put things in place to ensure that you’re organized, meeting deadlines and avoiding distractions as much as possible.
Thanks to inspirations like Sheryl Sandburg, more and more women are starting to understand their potential for success. But, the battle is far from won. Women still face obstacles in the workplace.

If you’ve been considering a career switch, there’s no better time to get started on your plan than now. If you don’t do anything different, you’ll likely find yourself feeling the same way this time next year.

When it comes time to scale your business, unless you rely entirely on automated systems you will have to recruit and hire staff to help you grow and expand.

It’s often the flexibility and ability to work when they want that is more attractive than getting a second job.
