Lately, I met a number of acquaintances and friends who work at home. They are freelance writers from the company I work with. Or they are buddies who decided to get home-based copywriting jobs. I envy them because they succeed in the attempt I wished for myself before.
I got too relaxed and comfortable feeding, dressing up and playing with my boys. I was too lazy to look for online opportunities. I content myself with the tried and tested network I have.
I do not have the ambition to go big time.
God provides and I got a full-time job. I hired ‘help’ to take care of the boys in my absence. The help, though, as it turned out, wasn’t really a reliable one. She left without a word.
Now, I am left with some thinking. Lessons learned from past house helpers. Overflowing tips and encouragement from stay-at-home mothers and freelance writers. I want to quit my full-time post. I want to concentrate on home-based writing.
To Begin Again

I might be saying these to myself as well.
