Mom Making Money While Homeschooling
Grace emailed me with a question about mom making money and homeschooling. I emailed her my experience, but I thought that she’d benefit from a wide range of opinions. Can you help Grace think of ways to make money while homeschooling?
I’m a mother of a 2 yr old son, located in the mountains of WNC. We are definitely going to homeschool our little boy, and have started researching different educational structures and programs. I’ll need to review your blog better this evening, but wanted to touch base, say hi, and ask you an odd question:
My husband and I operate a small timber frame design and build company. As our boy gets older, we both want to be around him more and more and more! He’s just that cute and cool! We have discussed the idea of working in the homeschool industry. Is it a legitimate business opportunity or a real way to help pay for the cost of homeschooling your own kid? I’m not interested in pyramid schemes or MLMs, but we all need to make a living and things cost money. I love to teach and to learn, but I don’t want to hustle for money, I’d just rather bake some bread, work in the garden, cut a timber and design a frame (which is what we do now). My husband wants to to start training little Malcolm to ride motocross, and so he thought that maybe I could work the homeschool gig with other kids at the track or the training facility. I dunno how to even analyze that option. Any advice will be welcomed.
