I found a great article online that gives a few tips about balancing a home business and a family:

Here is a qoute from the article which I think is so key because this has happened to me before

"Resist the urge to work at all hours and cut into valuable time, which you should be spending with your family. You need the support of your family in this new venture, and spending too much time working may have the opposite effect."

Here is the article link:

This is also another qoute from the article that is so important:

"The key to running a successful home-based business is the support of your family"

I have run into from time to time that my husband does not support my business.  And at those times when he did not support my business....my business suffered.  Having a supporting family is so key...they don't have to agree on every aspect of your business...but they need to support you when you need it!

Having a set schedule to work is a very good plan on how to balance family and your business.  And try to stick to it and be strict.   This will make running your business more manageable!

Here's another for you......

Feeli like your business is taking up too much of your time and feel guilty that you didn't spend enough time with the kids today...well...make them a part of your business.  I have my kids put labels on my catalogs, help me pack my bags before any party....they love it and makes me spend time with them while preparing for a party!

Love it!

even if all will concentrate on business, there should be a day to your family , you can set a family day to enjoy and have bonding with your love ones.
