Not hiring child care. I get that your main motivation for working from home is to spend maximum time with your kids. But you can't effectively grow a business or career if you're trying to care for small children while working at the same time. Your focus simply is not where it must be. Yes, child care is expensive, but it is a necessary investment. Further -- aside from rare incidences when a nanny calls in sick, or your kid is home from school with dysentery -- never make a habit of allowing kid noise in the background of business calls. People typically understand -- once in a great while. If working mom guilt holds you back from, note the giant study published in April in the Journal of Marriage and Family that found no correlation between the amount of time parents spend with their kids, and the children's well-being. “I could literally show you 20 charts, and 19 of them would show no relationship between the amount of parents’ time and children’s outcomes. . . . Nada. Zippo,” Melissa Milkie, a sociologist at the University of Toronto and one of the report’s authors, told the Washington Post. 
Robo-advisors are diversified investment accounts that are automatically managed by a computer algorithm (as opposed to a human money manager). If you want to invest, but don’t have the money, or don’t want to invest with a money manager, robo-advisors are for you! Robo-advisors make investing easier—and cheaper—so they’re perfect for new investors.
