Working from home for the last six and a half months has been great. If anything, I feel fulfilled knowing that I’ve managed to accomplish something I’ve always wanted to do, and that is to be hands-on with my kid while still making my own money. For the most part, my output as a WAHM has been nothing out of the ordinary. A few event scripts, some speeches for some pretty significant people, AVP material and a bunch of SEO articles.
In the beginning, one thing I really missed when I left the workforce was that feeling that I was part of something big. Don’t get me wrong, I know that playing an active role in my son’s life IS something big. But if you’ve ever worked before, you’d know what I mean. I was looking for that fulfillment that came with doing something, no matter how small, that was part of someone else’s big picture. I knew I’d get there someday, and I reminded myself often that I was still new to this work-at-home business.
And then one day, it happened. I became part of something big, a project that meant something to so many people. It was a project that actually touched lives. My name may not be on the final product, but just knowing that I played a part in the creation of something great is enough. Now I’m sure I’m in the right place, and that I’m doing the best thing for me. That being said, I really hope you guys take the time to watch this video.
To all the WAHMs out there, what’s been your most successful or rewarding work moment as a WAHM? I’d love to hear from you!
Much love and happiness,
