Before I started working from home, I was so tired by the end of the day and fed up with working for a boss who just wanted to take, take, take from me.It was a lucky day when I discovered that I didn’t have to be locked into the “normal” work routine anymore.
I had been working in the hospitality industry most of my adult life and whilst I enjoyed it pretty much, I always had in the back of my mind, that there must be a better way to make a living.
As a single Mum, my sons are my priority and I found I was getting increasingly dissatisfied that I had no energy left for them by the time I got home from work. To be honest I actually had little energy at the start of the day, after running around and getting everyone ready for school, flying through some house-work and then getting myself ready, I felt as though I had already put in a good days work!
On top of that, I was trying to participate in my sons sporting activities and help with their home-work and then have a little “me” time! Well, I wasn’t doing too well in any area and I knew that I was the only one that could change the situation I was in.
So one day an email arrived in my inbox regarding a home-based business and I thought Wow, this really sounds like what I need. As it turned out it wasn’t the business I ended up choosing, but I am SO glad that that email found me! It set me on a path that really made me prioritize my responsibilities and have a clear vision for my life-style.
I’ll admit I was a little hesitant because my computer skills were nowhere near what I thought I would need to start an on-line marketing business, but I received so much training and leadership (that even a novice like me could understand) and before I knew it, I had my own web-page and I was up and running.
My confidence has grown ten-fold and these days my boys even ask my advice when they are having computer problems!
I now have time for my sons, dinner is always ready at a civilized hour, I am up to date with the laundry and house-work and I am a happy Mum! I love my business and best of all I am able to travel to my beloved Bali and still work from there, because an on-line business is totally portable and allows you to work from any location.
My advice for anyone contemplating a work at home operation, is to thoroughly research the company and find a product that resonates with you. If it feels good and your comfortable with your choice, take the chance and achieve the financial freedom and life-style you deserve. After all it’s not the things that we do that we regret, it’s the things we don’t do!
