Motivated by Family and Flexibility
My children were my biggest motivational factors. Working from 8:30 to 5:00, Monday through Friday, didn't work for me. I was spending too much time away from my kids and had very little energy to be present for them when I wasn't working. I knew these feelings would only get worse once they started school, started playing sports, and started going on field trips, etc.
So, I decided to put my underutilized writing skills to work and created my own work-from-anywhere business. It was the best decision I've ever made and allows me to work part-time hours while earning a full-time income. I have more flexibility over where and when I work and can live life on my own terms.
