Reason # 1: You will become a better parent
I currently work from home with my 18 month old son by my side and everyday I am grateful for the privilege of being able to do so. I work around him and his needs and it is one of the most rewarding thing to be able to spend time with him and also earn a living at the same time. I also have other school aged kids involved in gymnastics and cheer-leading, so there are many drop offs and pickups in my daily routine. Having the ability to create a balance between my work and my role as a mom has absolutely made me a better parent. This is because I don't have the added pressure of commuting and beating myself up for not being there for my kids. Don't get me wrong, some days are easier than others, but having the assurance that I can manage my work and family responsibilities is an awesome feeling.
Reason # 2: You will become a better version of yourself
Let's face it working moms are SPECIAL! We are special because somehow we manage to do things that sometimes seem impossible. I can safely say that motherhood is THE hardest job on the planet. It takes so much out of you and couple that with outside work/ activities, you can really feel like you are loosing your mind sometimes. I know that having the independence of being my own boss and managing how my day goes has been a saving grace for my self worth. Working from home has allowed me to create a version of myself that is purposeful.
Reason # 3: You will have control over your life.
Having the ability to work when and how much you want based on your family responsibilities is a liberating experience. When you work for yourself and work from home, allows you to decide how much work you want to do. There are times when you can amp up your efforts based on how old your kids are. The older they get and the more self reliant they get will give you the freedom to work more. On the flip side allow you to work less when they need you the most.
