If you work from your home or would like to work from home and have a family (your partner counts as family if you don't have kids!), stop skimming, sit up, and pay attention. This may be the most important thing you have read in a while. A friend of mine recently quit her stay at home consulting job due to her work-life balance getting out of whack. I'll let her out herself in due time, but let's just say she's no small fry and she's very good at what she does.
