  • I think the one that will hit home the most with people here is how to balance working from home with little children, because lots of people who read this blog are trying to do exactly that. It can be very difficult indeed, but the good news is that you simply don’t have to worry about being without money anymore, as there are always things that you can do in order to earn the money that you need – which is of course great news, and you can fit it around anything else that you need to do during the day, too.
