    Is it a good decision to work at home?

    Hi all Moms. I quit my job 6 months ago as a graphic designer. I don't know if it is a good decision to work at home. I have a 3 year old boy and one teenager. One of my reason why I quit my job is I want to watch them at home even my sister and my mother who volunteer to watched them. I don't know if it is a good decision to quit my current job after having a financial crisis while having my freelance work. After doing freelance at home. My part-time can't sustain from my freelance income. Sometimes I'm thinking if I made a bad decisions after quitting my job. I didn't expect like this. I thought having freelance can sustain already to our family financial. It lead me to a regrets.
    Did I made a bad decision?

    Well I would not call it a wrong decision because when you took that decision this was the thing which seemed right to you. I hope I am correct to point that out. Besides no doubt freelancing jobs can help you but only if you are doing it for multiple people and almost full day. Even I am working as a full time freelance copy editor only then I am able to meet the ends. So basically if you want to sustain and survive on your freelancing jobs remuneration you need to find out some more clients. Also you can try some additional freelancing jobs which can help you. And if your sister and mother are helping you take care of your kids you can even look for a full time job. Side by side you can keep doing the freelance work. But working from home comes with a lot of advantages. It comes with a variety of advantages most importantly you get lot of balance in managing your life. Look at the silver lining you are getting enough time to spend with the family. You are not commuting any longer and do not have to pay the high gas bills. You are not spending money on clothing and accessories. Most importantly you don’t have a boss on your head to harass you with workload. As for me I even started a full time job along with the freelance job. And undoubtedly I am experiencing great satisfaction. I am sure if you put some perspective into it you will find a lot of ideas. Just think with a clear mind.

    Hi there. How are you? I agree with your thoughts. Children are best raised when proper care and attention is given to them. Some families need a women to handle them, otherwise they can not be handled. Sister and mother can also take care of them, no doubt. A mother's care and love is no where else. This is very true. I think you can earn in home more easily. There are very few but good online jobs are available. You may apply on Jobee.pk. Remember, Money can't buy happiness. I wish you all the best. A lot of love for your children. Take care of diet and health.

    I think this decision isn't for those who want to make a career, but this is very suitable for a mother who wants to get extra money. My friend works at home. It for money places announcements on bulletin boards, for example such. If you are able to make websites or a web designer, then finding a job on the Internet is easier, but there is a lot of competition.

    I would not call it a wrong choice since when you took that choice this was the thing which appeared to be on the right track to you. I trust I am right to call attention to out. Other than no uncertainty outsourcing employment can help you yet just in the event that you are doing it for various individuals and entire day. Indeed, even I am filling in as a full time independent duplicate editorial manager at exactly that point I am ready to meet the finishes. So essentially on the off chance that you need to manage and make due on your outsourcing employments compensation, you have to discover some more customers. Likewise, you can attempt some extra outsourcing occupations which can help you. Furthermore, if your sister and mom are helping you deal with your children you can even search for an all-day work. Next, to each other, you can continue doing the independent work. In any case, telecommuting accompanies plenty of focal points. It accompanies an assortment of points of interest, in particular, you get the parcel of adjusting in dealing with your life. Take a gander at the silver coating you are getting enough time to go through with the family. You are not driving anymore and don't need to pay the high gas bills. You are not burning through cash on dress and adornments. In particular, you don't have a supervisor on your make a beeline for the hassle you with a workload. Concerning me, I even began an all-day work alongside the independent occupation. What's more, without a doubt I am encountering incredible fulfillment. I am certain on the off chance that you put some viewpoint into it you will discover plenty of thoughts. Simply think with an unmistakable personality.

    It is understandable that you took that decision when you did. our children are always our first priority, and taking care of them is really important, and to give them time, and make sure they are well looked after is very important. that being said, being financially stable is really important too. it is something that kids need to feel secure. I would suggest that you either build up a client list of your freelancing that is bulky enough that you can work from home, and not fall behind financially, or you can look for another job. I think that there are ways in which you can make freelancing work. it just takes you a little more time to establish yourself as a free agent. so if you wan to stick with that, then you should work out a game plan, and just go for it. however, if you feel that your financial situation is getting dire, I would suggest that you update your resume and find another job. try to find something that can give you job security as well as some time to spend at home. the best possible thing for you would be to somehow strike a balance. dont worry too much, you can make this work, and things will work themselves out! best wishes!

    Hi, I think if you have decided something for the betterment of your family you should not regret at it. These days’ things have completely changed. Many people are earning while working from home, you already mentioned that you are a freelance graphic designer. Your field has a lot of potentials while working from home. I would suggest you keep looking for opportunities online. It will take a while but you will definitely get a decent income to support your family. I wish you all the best.
