Welcome, tell me a little about who you are, where you’re from and introduce your blog.
Tell me, how do you make money from home?
What makes it suitable for mums?
What are three benefits of working at home?
Working from home means that I can do all my work around childcare. Before starting Desa Life, I did a maternity cover in an office environment and it was horrible when one of my kids got ill, or if I had to work late as we haven't got any family support to help. I also really like it that I've found something to do that I'm passionate about and I don't need anyone to approve what I put on my website. I work with people that I get along with, and that's fun. Specifically with my website, it's great to support other parents by selling the things they make.
What are three negatives?
Working around the kids may also mean working late into the night to get things done... if there even is such a thing. What am I saying, there is always something else that needs doing. As you work for yourself, you feel the pressure to show that what you are doing is worth the time, effort and money. It also means no bonuses, no holidays, no pay rise and no pat on the back from other people. You need to be self motivated, confident and happy in your own skin to keep it going.
If you could only pick one, working from home or going to an employed job for the rest of your life, which would you pick?
