Hi, my name is Helen. I am a stay at home mum and a work at home mum.
When my kids were born, I chose to give up paid work
and stay at home with them. I found the transition from
being a well paid manager in the IT and Finance Industry
to being an at home mum, more difficult than I expected.
Don't get me wrong; home with the kids is exactly where
I want to be, and I have no intention of going back
into IT, but there are aspects of being at home that
I have found hard.
I wasn't used to not earning any money, and felt I
ought to be contributing financially; I found I am not
a natural born house keeper and the never ending to
do list meant my level of job satisfaction was quite
low; the children themselves have been more of a challenge
than I expected, especially with lack of sleep and no
family support in the Australia.
So, I reassessed my requirements and this website is
one of the outcomes.
I want to be home with the kids, but I also want to
have some time to myself, I want to work from home,
and earn some money, but I want to be in charge of when
and how I do that.
I have explored various options, and this website aims
to share them with you.
