WAHM in L.O.V.E.
“Find a job that you love and you will never have to work a day in your life at all.” I learned this from my very first boss in the bank where I used to work. This has been my guiding principle when it comes to career decisions ever since.
I find it very true and apt even for a freelancer or someone who works from home. It does not necessarily follow that you will enjoy working if you are working from home. You got to love what you do. Finding focus and motivation are just some of the things you deal with on a day-to-day basis when you work from home. If you do not even like what you do, it is going to be more difficult to motivate yourself, become productive, and consequently make money. Remember, you now work alone and you do not have a boss who will check on the progress of your work every once and a while. You are now responsible to the development of your freelance work or home business. Accordingly, the first thing you have to do is to find your passion.
Think, “What type of work do I want to have if not for money?” I also often hear that this is one of the foundations of a good business. Me? I love recruiting so I am still into it now. I also try to dabble on writing and research. These things kept me busy as a freelancer for the past months.
If you love what you do, other things just follow. It is easier to wake up in the morning, without dragging yourself to your work space. It is also less stressful and will not give you nightmares.
