Bridging the Gap Between the Stay-At-Home and Working Mom
MIRAMAR, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Virtual Solutions Inc., the leading global provider of virtual
business solutions, announced it has thousands of work-from-home
opportunities available for stay-at-home mothers looking for flexible
hours, a family work-life balance and the opportunity to earn money.
With the current public debate swirling around the choice facing women
to either work or stay at home to raise a family, a line has been drawn
in the sand that seems to suggest an either/or position. Noticeably
absent in this dialogue is the rapidly growing trend of Americans,
particularly women with children, who are choosing to meld their
personal and professional lives and work from home.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau's 2005 Survey of Income and Program
Participation, the most recent large scale look into how and where U.S.
citizens work, the number of Americans working exclusively from home
increased from 9.5 million in 1999 to about 11.3 million in 2005. And
according to Arise Virtual Solutions (News - Alert), one of the world's leading
providers of virtual business solutions, this trend continues to grow
and provides a viable and profitable option to working mothers.
"Stay-At-Home Moms represent our largest percentage of Independent
Business Owners," says John
Meyer, CEO of Arise, which provides opportunities to more than
20,000 Americans to own their businesses and work from home as "virtual"
service providers to Arise's Fortune 500 clients. "The desire for work
and life balance is important to everyone but perhaps no more so than to
mothers. By providing an opportunity that allows women to both work and
spend time with their children, a new paradigm is being created that
provides both economic and personal advantages."
Some key benefits to working from home for mothers is greater
flexibility to work at a convenient time of the day, the reduction of
daycare services, the significant savings from ever-increasing gas costs
and the lack of commute time. For Atlanta's Vanetta Anderson, a former
Public Relations professional and mother of three, these all played key
roles in her deciding to start her own business and pursue a career
working from home.
"The opportunity hasn't only been profitable but it's allowed me to
create a work schedule where I can be actively involved in my children's
day-to-day lives," she said. "I like having that kind of control over my
life and feel it's a great option for any working Mom looking to juggle
all the responsibilities we face."
