  1. Thank you for sharing your story. I’m a freelancer working from home for the past 8 years, and it was a hell of a journey. I would love that I knew some of the things back then when I just started.

  2. I’ve been a work-at-home mom for almost 12 years also! I worked 7 of those years as an independent contractor for a medical transcription firm, and the rest building my own practice, coaching ambitious moms in stress management & self-care.

    I agree with everything you’ve said here! I only wish I’d realized some of these sooner…like the need to make time for fun & friends! …resisting the urge to put in ‘just 5 more minutes’ ….

    and definitely your point about ergo workstation. I did end up suffering tendinitis in both of my thumbs from repetitive use as a medical transcriptionist, and that was one major factor in my leaving the industry.

    This info is pure GOLD for someone just starting out! Happy to see you educating & advocating for the wellbeing of work-at-home moms! 💖
