The Old Schoolhouse Review- HomeWork: Juggling Home, Work, and School Without Losing Your Balance

Home, School, Children, Husband, Friends, Family, Church.... we as mom's have so many different hats we wear each day. It is so easy for us to become overwhelmed by the many responsibilities we have and the hopes and dreams that are yet unfulfilled in our lives.

Rebekah Wilson knows what it's like to have a full plate- between her home, her husband, homeschooling her eight children (two of whom have special needs) and her FOUR home businesses- she has figured out how to do it all, and do it well. In the great new Ebook- HomeWork: Juggling Home, Work, and School without Losing your Balance- Rebekah Wilson's journey is just one of the inspiring stories of families who are (NOT) doing it all and learning how to prioritize the most important parts of their very busy lives.

HomeWork shares the journeys of many families living, working and learning together and offers great ideas for those wanting to step into the Work At Home world as well as wonderful tips for those who have already taken the plunge.

These inspiring stories are broken down by categories:
  • A Labor of Love- an eclectic collection of business stories ranging from a thrift store based sewing adventure to running a Bed and Breakfast

  • Computer Based- including selling products over the internet and freelance work

  • Creative Writing- families who make their living writing, printing, and/or publishing

  • Business Support- the journey of a medical transcriptionist and a offsite bookkeeper

  • Tricks of the Trade- great advice for those already in the WAHM world or those thinking about making the transition including- record keeping, tax information, organization, and more

There is even an appendix that includes some wonderfully helpful internet resources for those wanting more information on the careers mentioned in the book.

I was truly inspired by the way the families spotlighted in this book are dedicated to making the most of whatever journey they have taken. They understand that the true treasures are found in each other and that success can be measured in many different ways.
