Experienced MOMS know the Back to School Season starts NOW. While you are out & about locking down the best deals on 2018/19 school supplies, don’t forget to lock down a plan for yourself! Make this the year you start your own business (right from home if you like). Sure, it’s a learning experience – but Motherstucker wants to help make Back to School Business Ideas as easy as A, B, C!

According to the American Personal Chef Institute & Assn., there are about 9,000 personal chefs in the U.S. serving 72,000 clients.

“Looking to watch 1-2 kids after-school in my home this coming school year. I have a 4yr old and 6yr old. I was an elementary school teacher before I started to stay home with my girls. Would help with homework, have snack, and time to play inside and out. Please contact me if you’re interested by direct message & we can discuss what you are looking for!”
