Using WAHM websites and Work at Home message boards to

Networking on work at home forums is a great way to make friends with other moms who are working at home. You can find freelance writers, graphic designers and web designers to collaborate with, to help you with your projects and to share job leads with. Learn where to find WAHM forums online, where to meet WAHMS in real life and how to make friends with other work at home moms.
Moms who work from home share some of the same frustrations and triumphs regardless of how old their kids are, or whether they’re homeschooling, using private schools or public schools. Moms with babies and toddlers and moms of teens who are trying to balance
parenting with professionalism all struggle with similar trials and tribulations. It can be very rewarding to have a network of supportive colleagues.
My favorite message boards for wahms are the wahm.com boards, I’ve met moms there who have helped me find work. I’ve traded web design help for articles, I’ve found the answers to my questions by searching their forums, and I’ve also made some great friends. Knowing moms who have been there, done that, and succeeded is very motivational.
The Warrior forums have also been helpful, mostly for SEO and web design and affiliate marketing help. I’ve also found help at other parenting websites message boards, by looking for the wahm or work at home section. Wherever you find moms, there are those who want to work from home. It’s a natural combination because life as a mom can be expensive, but the nature of motherhood is such that you don’t really want to be away from them.
Actually, some moms really do want to be away from their kids. I can’t imagine that, though.
