Working. From home. With kids. [Part 1]

So, you have small children and want to advance your home-based business?
Maybe you’re an accountant, photographer, consultant… Well you’re in for a rough ride, I won’t lie. Is it worth it? Ah, let me put it this way… There are many times over the years I’ve wanted to just give up. But over time, each instance I was better at what I do than before. I’m not where I want to be but I’m well beyond where I was when I started. (And we all have to start somewhere)

As for the title
Why the periods? Why the separation? (Working @home w/kids) BECAUSE mentally it’s incredibly hard to keep work and home separated even without children but WITH that added variable… Just breathe in deep and focus.

My timeline
I’m happily married (10 years this June!) with 2 small children 1 year old girl and 4 year old boy at the time of this post. When we had just our son, it wasn’t too bad. We had various streams of income, and a much smaller workload for my multimedia projects (photo and/or video). I even stayed pretty active on my Xbox in my downtime (I’m a huge Mass Effect fan, since you were wondering. It’s pretty much the best game series ever made. Seriously, Google it.)

SO! in typical work-from home fashion… this blog post has been disrupted and cut terribly short.

NEXT POST:

  • I’ll tell you more about work-life with Kid #1
  • how work changed with Kid #2
  • Overcoming obstacles & distractions
  • My current situation

See You SOON!
