1. It is important for homeschool parents to give some thought to working from home before they ever start doing so.  After all, you will need a plan, some information and lots of support to help you along the way.  This is because you will need to have certain skills and abilities in order to do these things.  Fortunately, these talents are one in the same.  However, having your eyes wide open will help you be successful and enjoy what it is that you are doing.

    Things To Consider

    There are some things that you will need to consider in order to ensure that you will be able to strive for success in both homeschooling and working from home.  These things include:

    • Are you well organized?
    • Can you follow a task through until completion?
    • Are you a self-starter?
    • Can you work through the various distractions around you (i.e. housework, television, the Internet, toys)?

    Of course, most of these things will need to be worked through even if you decide to forego a work at home job and concentrate only upon homeschooling.  Therefore, you may actually surprise yourself in finding that you are indeed the type of person who can be successful at doing both of these things at the same time.
