Are You Exploring The Freelance World?

Why not see what it takes if it won’t leave you alone. You can leverage current skills from your full-time job to make money writing. Are you a program manager for a nonprofit? A project manager at a tech company? No matter where you are or what you do, you can learn new things and experience the freelance life as a mom.
One of the reasons I started this blog was because I wanted to use my skills and not be in a Monday through Friday 8-5 box. Not anything against people who go that route. There are definitely pros and cons to both. Want to make a living writing, being a blogger full-time, being an influencer on social media, or an interior designer…you can. Whatever that is. You can turn that itch into something to make money. The compound effect. Do one thing at a time to go freelance and live your best life. Jon Morrow of Smart Blogger

Start. Whether you start part-time or you have the option to start full time. Start. Whatever you don’t know how you can learn along the way. One thing to do is to stop saying “I don’t know where to start.” The key is to start. Start jotting down ideas you have. Looking up online resources for freelance writers. Believe you can leave your day job, start making money as a stay at home mom or make side income even though it’s an idea right now. Everyone starts somewhere.
It’s definitely not easy, but what is worth trying? Listen, I was a stay at home mom not wanting to a be a stay at home mom full time. I also did not want to go to a 9-5 job every day. That is how this journey began. I had to do something. That’s why I decided to start this blog.

Writing down affirmations seem as phony as a 3 dollar bill. Do them anyway! Before you have any clips or before you have paid invoices from clients, you have to believe that you will yourself. Being a mom is hard and exhausting and rewarding and all those things. It’s easy to get sidetracked. But it’s also a great place to muster up your why. Start your freelance career!
Your why is the reason you’re doing this. Why do you want to be a freelancer? Freelance writer, graphic designer, or photographer. You know if you stick with it, there’s a better chance of it happening then not. But you’ve never been a writer in your day job. Or a graphic designer. That’s okay. You can learn fresh new skillls and start your freelance business with where you are today. Here are some of my affirmations as a freelance mom:
- I am qualified.
- My services are always in demand.
- I am a badass freelancer.
- I am a badass mom.
