Want a better work/life balance? Try working from home jobs for mums!

Are you sick of trying to fit your family life around your career? Working from home jobs for mums could be just the solution.

Let's address the negatives of working from home jobs to begin with, so that you don't have any false impressions. Firstly, work from home jobs tend to be low paying. This is especially true for freelance or consultant positions, which can be erratic and may dry up at short notice.

Secondly, it can be difficult to maintain a boundary between your working and your private lives. While this is true with all careers, it is especially true when you essentially live in the office!

Thirdly, work from home jobs require a discipline that many people, despite their best intentions, simply lack.

So now that you have realistic expectations, let's take a look at some of the many benefits of work from home jobs.

For us, the biggest benefit of jobs from home is their flexibility. The vast majority of jobs allow you to pick and choose your own working hours, and some even allow you to choose how many hours you would like to work.

You'll also enjoy the freedom of being your own boss - with no one looking over your shoulder or telling you whether you can take a coffee break or finish work early.

An often underestimated benefit is the time (and expense) that you'll save on the commute. The average worker could enjoy up to an hour and a half extra leisure time per day.
