I’m not sure if I’ve talked about this on the blog before, but I work from home. I do project-based freelance writing, editing, and proofreading for a bunch of clients. Like any work from home momma will tell you, this is not an easy thing to do. Yes, I can set my own hours. Yes, I can be home with my kids. But I also have no work/life separation and I contend with a cranky toddler while I’m trying to meet deadlines.
It’s not easy, but it works for me.
Over the years I’ve learned a few tips and tricks that make the whole process a little easier and a whole lot more productive. The last two apply strictly to mommas, but I think the first three tips are valuable for anyone working from home.
