I was already a home worker before I had my baby because my job (medical information analyst) allowed me to telecommute. I became a work at home parent out of necessity; I couldn’t find good child care for baby after I gave birth. So I quit my job and became a writer/virtual assistant.
What started as just a job to make ends meet has now turned into a career for me. I now write for several blogs and websites, including one of the biggest news agencies in the Philippines. I also do search engine optimization, social media management, and online reputation management for clients.
But what I enjoy doing most is being a hand-on mom to my now 3 year old daughter. There are times I feel I’m not doing enough as a mom or as a writer. Good thing I have a very supportive husband who is always willing to cheer me on and tell me that he’s glad that I’m a work at home mom.
