The first thing that came to my mind when I learned about my pregnancy is the fear of needing to quit my job. It did not happen, but I suffered from working mom guilt for quite a long time. Some days it was bearable, but there are days when circumstances make my guilt too strong. Like when I am traveling on business despite my child being sick. Or when I can’t bring my son to school on his first day. And then there are school activities that I could not attend.

On top of that, there are also challenges I have to bear with at work. Example, feeling indebted to my supervisor when I ask for leave because of my sick child. Or worse, when I still reported working, and I’m expected to function like there is nothing wrong at all like worrying is a faucet that you can switch off.

Women in the workplace are becoming a norm, and yet the question remains – is it worth it?

Amazing Advantages of Working Moms

Independent and creative children

The working moms train their children to behave better with their guardian while they are away for work. This prepares the children to become more independent and creative as well. They become less demanding of their needs and learn to depend on their abilities. Also, they become creative with activities to do to get entertained.

Working moms are good role models for gender respect

Children learn early that women can work outside of homes, and men should help in the house. As they grow up, they become advocates for gender respect. Working moms are the ideal role model that career women have a place at work and can excel in a career as men do.

Children of working moms are more likely to succeed

Working moms are raising the bar of success inside their homes. The children know that their mom worked hard to achieve where she is right now. The value of education, discipline, and hard work get implanted in the lives of their children.

Career women have less depression and self-esteem issues

Working moms have a more extensive network due to the social aspects of working in the corporate world. They have more friends and can take part in varying activities. Also, they are more independent of their husband because of their financial freedom. They have the freedom to do self-care without guilt because they feel that they deserve it.

Provide more quality time with family and showers more love

Because career women are away most of the day, they give more quality time for the husband and the children. They shower more love to offset the days that they are busy with work.

And because women contribute financially, the family spends more family vacations together. If you’re like me–someone who focused so much of my energy on what I am losing as a working mom, you need to stop. It is self-sabotaging and unhealthy. Instead, capitalize on your advantages. Then learn creative ways to resolve issues that you encounter as a working mom.

There is no fix-all for women who have to function in different roles. What is essential is to give value to what you have.

A Home-based Entrepreneur and Blogger For me, being a home-based entrepreneur, parent and blogger has been quite an experience. Here’s how I got started on it all. Where I’ve been Becoming a blogger and a hardcore, home-based entrepreneur wasn’t exactly a planned career action for me. I can almost say I didn’t see it coming. It all started when I got pregnant with my first child. Back then, I was still working as a flight attendant, and I have to admit that I really loved my job. But when that baby came on board, I decided that I wanted to be as involved in my child’s life as I could possibly be. Once I’d made my decision, I swung into action. I quit my job and quickly made plans for a new (and different) life with the baby in mind. My foray into the glamorous world of entrepreneurship and blogging was a little more abrupt. This started a lot more recently.   I first came into contact with these products sometime around two years ago. In 2018, my aunt-in-law would be the first person to preach to me the wonders of Aulora Kodenshi. I confess that I was very skeptical back then. As I mentioned earlier, I didn’t see myself as an entrepreneur (or even a blogger for that matter). I felt I was comfortable in my role as a housewife and that picking up endeavors like that was for people who had more money to “waste.” I decided to continue to keep my focus as a good mother and an ideal housewife. The plan was, if I kept feeding my family good food and making sure that they all exercised regularly, there wouldn’t ever be a need to buy any of the products my husband’s aunt talked to me about. As it turned out, I’d not end up buying the products; I’d also become one of its most vocal advocates. How I Got Here Our second child got a case of eczema when she was about 18 months old. Ever since that time, every so often, she’d have a rather severe outbreak. The doctors would always tell us it was nothing serious, nothing to bother about, and we believed them for the most part. A reason for this was that almost like clock-work, she’d always get better after every 3-6 months. All of this changed though in February 2019. She had an outbreak, and we thought it was normal until she scratched so hard she drew blood. We tried everything to no avail. Frustrated, I decided to try SHIRUTO, one of the many products from BE International. In no time at all, the eczema and even the scars cleared up. I was so excited, I took to my social media page to share my joy, and that’s how I got into blogging and entrepreneurship. Plans for the Future I’m happy with where I am right now. I have a healthy family with a career I want to see grow. I don’t conform to the classic stay-at-mom routine of waking early in the morning. I do my best work at night when everyone’s happy and rested. The goal is to continue to remain healthy and inspire everyone around me to be free and keep those positive vibes flowing strong!
