Do you stay at home or go to work and what’s the hardest part for you?

I was a stay at home mom up until 2005 when we started a little Christian online bookstore and then I worked during nap times and after the children were in bed. Then in 2008 I started my virtual assistant business and have been working ever since. I think the hardest part for me is comparing what life was like as a stay at home mom to a work at home mom. You would think they are the same but I find the roles vastly different. I struggle to balance everything, though things have improved, there's always room for improvement!

    I work from home and the hardest part is making people understand that I AM WORKING!

    No, I can't drive you to the airport, I have to work.
    No, I can't take you to the mall, I have to work.
    No, I can't play Super Mario 3d World, I am working.
    No, I can't go to lunch, I am working.

    People think because you work from home that you don't work the same way they do. Hello, yes I do! I can just do it in my office at home.
