So why should you listen to me When it comes to finding your work from home life balance? In 2009? I discovered my passion. It was very exciting because I never realized I could be passionate about work ever. The challenge was that I was passionate about work that wasn't actually my full time job. I was trying to navigate showing up for my work in public policy while also making time for my passion in digital media. That passion quickly became a paid skill and then I was side hustling. I started taking on clients in my little marketing practice. The only time I had to give that side hustle where the hours I wasn't working at my full time job monday through friday, 9 to 5 were already accounted for. So that left mornings, evenings and weekends. Now I was a young, single woman, no Children, just me and my dog lucy, so it was easier for me at the time to give those extra moments of my life away to more work and I really wanted to because it was work I was so excited about and in doing so, I excelled at optimizing little pockets of time scheduling what I needed to do and getting it done in the minimal spaces of time I had available. I learned to be extremely efficient to see the results that I wanted, I guess while I was building a resume toward my social media marketing practice, I was also building an arsenal of tools for being insanely productive. It didn't take long for me to leave my full time job and take those same practices with me as I began my full time entrepreneurial adventure working from home, which has now been my productive lifestyle For more than 10 years. So much of my experience has been accidental truly, I was just falling into things because of how excited I was about what I was working on. But the most important thing that happened in that time, everything that I learned, everything that I worked towards, everything I had to try to balance was what I learned about the value of my time. When I could no longer unknown that the moments passing were a non renewable resource. It moved me. I want you to feel moved in that same way, not just to be able to show up and be more efficient and productive in your work from home life, but also in the other moments of your life.
