10 Hudson Valley Parent n February 2019 Be your own boss Raising a family and having a full-time job outside of the home can be incredibly stressful. That's why some moms opt to work from home and start businesses that they can control. New Windsor mother of three little ones, Jennifer Brunell, was searching for something that would make money and let her be at home with her children when she began her at home business, Bright Creations. She says, "I was working full time but had to leave the job to take care of my children. I was missing work every time one of them was sick or needed me. It just wasn't working out." In an effort to find something that she could do when she was off "mommy duties," she realized there was a ton of demand for customized products that she could make right from home. "I started with an order of custom glasses for a friend. That friend told a friend and it grew from there. Pretty soon, I had tons of orders." For other moms looking to leave the nine to five hustle for an at home job, Brunell suggests finding something that you enjoy and searching for some sort of demand. "I always enjoyed being creative and making things with my hands. I love seeing people use the products I work hard on.".
