New year, new me? No not really, but starting the new year, knowing that this year I am truly the master – or I suppose that should be mistress – of my own destiny is so empowering it’s great.
When I was caught up in the corporate rat race, it never even occurred to me that working from home could be a financially viable alternative for me. I just thank my lucky stars that I discovered it was and made the move to working from home full time!
Welcome to my new blog! I could have called it lots of things, but the fact is, the change to working from home has been the most significant change outside of childbirth ever! There are just so many great reasons I could list, but they all boil down to one thing really; I have taken charge of my own life again. No more working for someone I can’t respect. No more taking my holidays around half a dozen other people and compromising over dates. I can do exactly as I please now and it is nothing short of a revelation!
It was a big decision to give up a well paid management job in a prestigious company, but all that glitters is not gold and I really began to feel like I was selling my soul.
