Why do you want to be a WAHM–(Work at Home Mom)? Where are you at in your business planning? Or have you been working at home for 20 years?
Are you pregnant? Or do you have older children? Where are you in your mothering journey?
I have two elementary school children. I have been a WAHM since 2000. I started out as a tutor, became a freelance writer while tutoring, and then, became a freelance writer. It’s been quite a journey. I’ve had some bumps along the way, and I hope to challenge you to think about your priorities, handling both work and home-making under the same roof, among the other challenges of working at home.
I love this journey and I’m glad I’m on it. Believe me, it’s much better than working away from home and having to juggle the demands of a boss and a family. And just because my kids are in school doesn’t mean that my road is necessarily easier. I always thought that once the kids are in school that I would be able to sit down and write. Well, I still get distracted by loads of laundry, planting the garden, and people calling me. But, there’s also school vacation days, snow days, and sick days too. Nothing’s easy–but it’s worth it. I look forward to talking to you again about this wonderful journey.
