5 Reasons You Need To Be A Freelancer MUM!
There is no job that is greater than being a mum because watching your kids grow can't be compared to anything in the world. But before the kids came into the picture you had your aspirations that you had to push aside not just for your kids, but for your family too, and now you are working a 9-5 job that you most probably don't like. Yes, I have been there and I know how it feels!
So the question is why don't you be a freelancer and offer value to people all around the world, while you watch your kids grow? You would've given it a thought but it's just hard convincing yourself that you could be a mum, a career lady and a freelancer at the same time. I want you to know that it is not impossible and I'm going to take you through 5 ways that you could handle this like a Wonder Woman.
1. It's Not That Hard
The great thing about freelancing is that you can start right now, yes because it all depends on your mindset. There are loads of freelancing sites that you could be a part of and you get to make some money on the side while you are still doing your 9-5. You get to control the amount of projects that you take on because you are in charge of your time and life.
The extra income that comes with doing freelancing can be put into other areas of your lifestyle like additional activities for the kids, a nice wristwatch for your man or simply a nice treat for you.
2. More time With the kids
There are a few things that come close to seeing your kids grow up right in front of your eyes. But not a lot of mums get to enjoy this privilege because of the challenges involved with being a wife, mum and holding down a regular job. So why don't you take charge of your life, save a lot of money on getting a nanny and be active in the lives of your kids?
The fact that you get to save money on a nanny is an added advantage that you just can't ignore so go ahead and take that leap of faith and take charge of your life.
3. Put Your Skills To Use
The most amazing thing about freelancing is that there is someone out there who will pay for what you know or can do. You don't even have to get special training to get started on it as you are using your knowledge and skills. I have seen a lot of mums procrastinate because they feel like they are not good enough. But you don't how great you already are until you actually get started, so why don't you do it like right now. You can take on the world while breastfeeding your baby.
The internet has opened up the world to us and there are limitless possibilities that can be found when you are a freelancer. You could make new friends, connect with like-minded individuals, explore new opportunities and a whole lot more from the comfort of your couch while your kids watch their favorite cartoon.
5. You Can Do It
There is nothing that you can’t do if you set your mind to it and having a baby could just be the catalyst that you need to make a mark in freelancing and it is not just about making money. It is about doing what you love, making an impact on your life, the lives of others, and the lives of your children. Not to mention raising your beautiful kid/s like a superwoman!

What Our Clients Are Saying
For a woman on the "wrong side of 50" that is, someone who did not grow up using the computer as a second language, I find myself relying more and more on your expertise with all things web and cloud related. Not only on your online skills but on your perspicacity and professionalism in all the areas I need to have assistance in. I have become to consider you more a colleague than an consultant.
