Before we had Baba, I worked with Autistic children and worked long hours. I had numerous jobs at the same time, childminding, working in a care home, and working as a special needs Nanny and my work hours were full of children.
Having Baba changed my view on work, and I didn’t actually have a job to go back into to, but I also knew that I didn’t want to have to go back into working with children straight after having Baba. I am never saying no, but I knew at the time it was a no.
I thought long and hard about what I wanted to do work wise, and finally settled on going back into Scrapbooking and set up Scrapbookerry. It is hard work working at home, and is constant 24/7 work. It is not regular pay, and I would be lost without the support and help that I get from the internet and books that I read. Sites such as http://www.workingmums.co.uk have become a good friend of mine in the last four years.
Before I decided to work from home with my own business I used to visit this site regularly looking for jobs, seeing if there was anything that I could do from home working around Baba. Since starting my own business I still search this site regularly. I still look at the jobs incase anything comes up that would fit in with our routine but there is much more to this site than just jobs.
I use it a lot when I am researching things, it has great tips on working for yourself, working from home and using resources such as social media to help your business. I read their magazine regularly and look at the Business Zone Articles to help with my own business.
I really have found this site so helpful with ideas, motivation, tips and advice and I have found a lot of information that I didn’t know before from the Working Mums website. I am so pleased I found this site at the beginning of my struggle with what to do with my working life, rather than at the end of the journey.
