In honor of International Women’s Day, I want to share some excerpts from SuperWAHM founder Melinda Brennan’s WAHM Manifesto. What’s a WAHM? Why, a Work-At-Home-Mother, of course. That unsung hero who manages to wring out a business between taking care of kids, volunteer work and laundry.
I’m only going to share the headlines from the WAHM Manifesto with you, because I believe you should read the whole thing for yourself. You don’t even need to provide an e-mail address to get the document. Just go to the page and download it, no strings attached. To entice you, here are the headlines from the WAHM Manifesto:
- Every WAHM has the right to earn a decent income
- WAHMs need to charge what they’re worth
- Work at home businesses are professional businesses
- Raising well-mannered, responsible, educated kids is our most important job as mothers
- WAHM is NOT a derogatory term
- Working at home can be harder than working outside the home
- Having it all is a Myth
Curious to read more? Good! Head over to Mel’s website and download your copy. And while you’re there, check out the SuperWAHM 1000 Challenge — Mel wants to help 200 WAHMs clear $1000 a month in profit in 2011. Care to join us?
