Hi Emma!  I too own my own business and it was the best direction I could've taken in allowing me to stay home with my kids.  You just need to decide if you are looking for a "job" from home, like transcription or similar, or wanting to invest a little more into your future and start a lucrative business.  Having ownership of something, I feel is far more rewarding and your options for income are endless.  You get out what you put in.  I work around my play time with my kids, which is usually about 8-10 hours a week, I'm my own boss and the best part is, it's fun!  I'm been able to get into great shape after my 2nd (he's now 9 mos) and make a business out of inspiring others to get healthy too.  If fitness and being healthy excites you as it does me, I'd love for you to check out more about what I do:

Best of luck to you.

One job which works well from home is a transcriptionist.  You have to have good keyboarding skills and  may have to take a course to be certified, e.g. medical transcritptionist.  This has worked out well with one of my friends.
