Work at Home Mom Attorney Blogs For Fun
“I have an entrepreneurial side, so starting my own firm out of my house was more exciting than nerve-wracking. And after being so accustomed to keeping busy with a legal pad in front of me and stacks of papers to read, I felt antsy just dropping everything to spend time with my new baby all day, every day. I loved being a new mom, but felt the itch to add to that role. Working at home was the perfect combination of being there for my little one, while still exercising my mind and feeling productive.
Two more kids soon followed the first, and my work-at-home experience quickly changed as the free hours in the day rapidly diminished. These days, it’s much more of a challenge to fit everything in and balance my life than when I only had one little baby to keep an eye o.! I’m forced to be more focused, more intentional, and more organized.
As time passed, I began to feel bored (and perhaps a little trapped in the at-home routine). So I did the unthinkable and added another part-time job. It may sound counter-intuitive, but I needed it. This time the “job” was something that was just for fun and just for me – working as an independent stylist for Stella & Dot. After spending all my time pouring over legal documents and chasing my kids, I craved more social interaction. Making some extra bucks while mingling with other ladies, wine, and pretty jewelry has been such a fun addition, and the flexible work-at-home style fit perfectly into my life. Tweaking your set-up is such a good idea when things start to feel stale!”
The great thing about interacting with other work at home moms who are doing what you aspire to do, is that you can learn so much from them and get tons of support and information when you need it.
