Are you a stay-at-home seeking to make extra bucks for the family while still taking care of the home? If you are, this article has been created to help you ease that burden of wanting additional cash.
As much as men want to become financially empowered it is also an amazing idea for women to become empowered in the same society also.
We are in a virtual era, being a stay-at-home does not make you a liability, you can still build a million-dollar business part-time.
Most women tend to downplay the possibilities of still doing something financially profitable from home.
I need you to first understand that a lot of people quit their jobs to establish businesses and have to work from home, so therefore being a stay-at-home should not be the reason not to make an additional income.
Why a Woman Should Be Financially Independent.
In my own opinion, as stated in the section above, I feel that a woman should be financially independent and here is some reason to back this up.
1. To be a role model.
A woman should be able to support the needs of the family financially, socially, emotionally and so on is a role model for her children to show them that Gender inequality is generated by society and does not mean anything when a woman is powerful, confident and self-assured.
If children see that their mothers are financially stable, they will also recognize the importance of money and be motivated to be self-sufficient as they grow up.
2. To meet the rising cost of living.
To be honest with you, a woman needs to learn to control her finances so that she will be able to meet up with the present-day inflation rate all around the world.
Inflation, as we all know, has risen sharply in the last few decades. To own a decent house, send your children to a good school and enjoy an above-average standard of living has become very high.
3. To pre-empt emergencies.
One thing that is not predictable is life and I must tell you that life can happen to anyone, no matter who you are or your class.
Every family needs to be prepared for a contingency. Jobs are not super safe, nor is life, when the husband is the only bread earner, and the wife and children are relying on him, then there is a need to worry about the household.
I narrated my story in the paragraph above and I just hope you learn from that.
