How much am I worth? Before I had children, I could tell you exactly what I was worth based on my yearly salary. Today, as a stay at home mom, I can't do that, because I am not compensated in dollars (per say). I think everyone will agree that a stay at home mom's jobs are more than full-time. We do not work the normal 40 hours work week, we work loads of overtime! Therefore, increasing our value and worth. If you were to do an analysis of the job duties that you perform and then compare the pay levels to these typical positions in your area, you could calculate your market value. I am worth a whopping $124K a year to my family!
Here are 13 of my motherly duties on a pay scale.

Chief Executive Officer $69.97
(Since she is the highest-ranking person in The Home, a Chief Executive Officer job description includes overall strategy, top-level decision making and oversight of activities. While it is not typically said in so many words in a Chief Executive Officer job description, it is a high-stress job requiring quick, decisive choices on a multitude of subjects. A Chief Executive Officer must constantly make decisions on which tasks to tackle personally and which to delegate, work to keep her family happy, and take responsibility for new directions which may affect the entire family. It is a position that often requires long hours and some travel. A Chief Executive Officer job description will vary depending on family size. Whether for a family with 3 members or 6 members. A Chief Executive Officer's job description will include leadership, management, and strategy. Even though the specific duties included in a Chief Executive Officer job description may not be commonly known among family memebers, those who think it is a cushy job have not walked a mile in a Chief Executive Officer's shoes. With members of the family holding high expectations for improvement and profitability, high job pressure is an unwritten facet of any Chief Executive Officer's job description. Fortunately, for the Chief Executive Officers of most successful or growing families, seeing the business you've spent years cultivating start to take off is just as big a reward as any CEO compensation package.)
