I’m so lucky to be a WAHM

I feel really fortunate to be a work at home mom. Lately there has been reason for me to be around the house and available to my family.

Even though it sometimes requires that I work later into the evening to meet a client’s deadline,  in order to care for my family, at least as a Virtual Assistant business owner, I have that Choice.

That is the greatest thing about having my own business is the amount of choice I get each day in all that I do.

I choose my clients.

Through a process of interviewing I am able to pick and choose who I work with just as much as they are able to pick me.

I choose my hours.

I can work around my family, get them to the doctor, keep the house in working order, (sometimes) and cook healthy meals at night. (most of the time)

I am able to engage in life long learning, reading materials important to my career, go to graduate school, and truly “have it all”. (just not at the same time)

I am very, very fortunate indeed. What do you love about working from home?

  1. I like that I can sleep in! I know that sounds very selfish, but I love my sleep, and i like staying up super late and waking up late. At this point, I don’t think I could even manage to make myself have a structured “job” any longer.

    Also, I can plan to go for a walk whenever I like, and even take whole days off to do what I want.

    I tend to do my best work in batch processing, anyway.

  2. I don’t think it is selfish at all! I think being able to work from home and work during the hours we are most productive is a wonderful thing!
