Last Saturday, I was able to attend It’s a WAHMderful Life Workshop by Manila Workshops and Martine of Daintymom, it’s a whole day affair at the Studio SnR in Ortigas. This is the second series of the WAHMderful Life workshop, the first happened last October 2012. This second workshop is more specific and tackles real ways on the road to being a WAHM such as freelance writing and virtual assistance.
What it’s like to be a work-at-home mom (WAHM)? I happened to preview what it’s like to be one after I gave birth to Gwen and I was on a 2-month maternity leave, I had an online job I got from Odesk aside from blogging on the side. Before I got pregnant, I had a successful online shop at Multiply, Pink Fortune. I love accessories and that’s what I sell then. With that experience, I love the fact that I’m earning even if I’m in my jammies.
The idea of being a WAHM always crosses my mind whenever I have yaya problems…
Of course I know that there are plenty of possibilities online (writing gigs, data entry, reserach, social media) and offline through home-based business, but some problems I might face being a WAHM is TIME MANAGEMENT and CONTINUITY. I really lack time management skills and the idea of working at home with all the temptations like the TV, the bed, etc. is so not for me. Also, I noticed that I easily get uninterested after a month or two with my online jobs that’s why I’m afraid that I can’t have a stable income.
Martine of DaintyMom.com, on the other hand, is having a WAHMderful life already! She found her bliss and she wants to help us moms to have a successful WAHM life.
