So I realized the other day, it’s been exactly three years since I made the freakin scariest decision ever to leave my “stable” full-time job in digital marketing. I say “stable” – because shortly after I left the magazine I worked for, it was sold and several of my friends and colleagues were blind-sided by a slew of lay-offs. But as life would have it, we’ve all since gone on to pursue careers that fulfilled us in ways we never would have imagined possible had we stayed in our comfort zones. For me personally, it meant fully transitioning to working from home primarily on my blog, as well as getting my first real taste of the freelance world. I learned very quickly that trying to juggle a career from home, while being a mom to two little ones, and keeping up with my first house after living in a 1 bedroom – was challenging to say the least. Any preconceived notion I had about the work-at-home mom life went completely out the window and into the gutter.
