How to Pursue Your Passions as a Work-at-Home Mom: A Review of How to Have Your Cake and Eat it Too by Mandi Ehman

I’ve been working from home for over 3 years now as an online writer and I love it. Working from home has opened up a whole new world for me – opportunities, friends, skills and more. I wouldn’t have it any other way and Mandi Ehman, founder of Life…Your Way and author of How to Have Your Cake and Eat it To o eBook feels the same way. In her latest eBook, Mandi shares her story and journey as a work-at-home mom and offers immensely practical and useful tips to help you pursue your passions while managing home, kids and more.


Working-at-Home Isn’t Easy

One of the things that I usually tell my friends curious to know how I work from home is that it isn’t easy and it isn’t for everyone. Mandi reiterates the fact and talks about all the hard work involved in running a business from home. So, yes, while working at home has its perks, it does involve plenty of determination, a desire to achieve and a dream to reach the skies.

WAHMs and Schedules, Support Systems and Sacrifice

A work-at-home mom needs to make the most of her time. After all she does have the same number of hours as everyone else and much more on her plate. Mandi talks about the importance of schedules and routines as well as the benefits of a support system. And she discusses sacrifice and saying “no”.

In other words, she gives you the real picture behind the life of a busy work-at-home mom. She tells you how focusing on your goals can help you reach them faster, how to stay inspired, deal with time wasters, and identify your non-negotiables and work your dream. Mandi helps you find support systems and resources around you in your husband, your peers, a mentor and outsourced agencies. She walks you through running a home-based business with everything you need to know, under your belt.

Action Steps to Succeed as a WAHM

While there is no real surefire formula to help you rock as a WAHM, there are guidelines, advice and tips to help you do your best. How to Have Your Cake and Eat It Too  is one such resource for every single work-at-home mom or business owner. Mandi draws from her own vast experience and provides valuable advice and tips on planning, productivity, staying positive and more.

She gives you ways to manage home easily and effectively, deal with your “pressure points”, declutter, menu plan and overcome the laundry monster.

Tools, Tricks and Tips for Work-at-Home Moms

Best of all, How to Have Your Cake and Eat It Too  is a toolbox for every mother considering working from home. Not to mention that Mandi lists her most useful tools to manage her time and increase her productivity as well in the eBook.
I highly recommend this eBook for every mom working out of home, wanting to start a business or feeling overwhelmed with their life as a WAHM. Available for $12 { check out the sales page for a special offer!}, the eBook is a great investment if you want to “have your cake and eat it too!”
