Working from Home Became My Safety Net

I am often asked about how I got started working from home. And the other question I’m asked on a regular basis is what made me decide to work from home. Working from home is romanticized and, yes, there are some great perks. My story behind building my business is rather unique because there are a lot of factors involved. When I say that a traditional corporate job just isn’t possible, I mean it in a literal way. Working from home is the safest option.

How I Deal with Chronic Migraines as a Work from Home Mom

Unfortunately, I deal with chronic migraines. Not just chronic migraines, but hemiplegic migraines. And sometimes I do manage to get a migraine without the migraine, but with several other hemiplegic symptoms. Thankfully, I’ve gotten into a routine as a work from home mom that allows me to function most days, which is, frankly, most chronic migraine sufferers wet dream since a new medication only comes out about every 20 years…and it’s usually so goddamn expensive that most people can’t afford it.

7 Keys to Living My Best Life (Your Results My Vary)

I am a work at home mom. And I have been for several years. I don’t beat around the bush. And I don’t put up with bullshit. I am told in person and online, “I wish I could be more like you.” Most people talk about how they could never do that. They can…they just make an active decision not to do that.

It was 100% an “I don’t want that for me,” and we are all entitled to our own boundaries and desires.

Here are the 7 keys to living my best life as a work from home mom.

Has Workplace Anxiety Gotten to Scale?

In a single word: absolutely. A few years ago, Groupon (of all places!) commissioned a study about work stress. It found that 20% of respondents worked 10+ hours a day, 50% said workload was preventing them from work-life balance, and yet 53% said that, despite how much they were working, they still had significant financial concerns. When the amount of work is not in line with the rewards from the work, there’s usually misalignment resulting in workplace anxiety.
