Many believe that stay-at-home Moms chose their children over their careers – and certainly, that is often the case.
Satisfying that yearning to be at every daytime event at school, volunteer to be the leader of the after school club, and to have the flexibility to pick your children up after school.
But the reason some Moms are stay-at-home Moms might surprise you.
According to an article dated May 13, 2013 on CBS Local (Charlotte), low-income mothers are being pushed out of the workforce because they can’t afford the costs association with working.
As the article explains, daycare costs alone are close to $12,000 per year, per child. Add to that figure other costs to work outside the home such as transportation, clothing, and meals – and pretty soon the numbers just don’t make sense.
What does that mean for direct sales consultants?
Starting a home party, social selling, network marketing – or any type of direct sales business can put the ball in the stay-at-home Mom’s court.
When the expenses to work outside of the home don’t make sense, now you can provide her with the option to be a stay-at-home Mom, and at the same time, bring home profits through her direct sales business.
Since the initial cost to start nearly any direct sales business these days is very reasonable (most are well under $200, if not lower), it’s very cost effective to get started.
Plus – contrary to a job – you’ll have the freedom to schedule the times when you work your business.
That way, you won’t have to absorb those expensive daycare costs – especially if your spouse or another family member is available to care for your children when you’re working your business.
So this surprising news about stay-at-home Moms provides another reason to consider starting a direct sales business.
