Why did I choose this path? The Life of Working from home…
This is my story!
I moved from a big city where everything was expensive and travel took forever to a smaller city in Ontario.
My job was very demanding, involved a lot of travel, was the only one on call for all of Canada 24/7, 365 days spent most of my time on the road did not get much sleep
And had to go to the office every day as well, which was a 1.5-hour drive each way depending on traffic, so frustrating and tiresome.
It paid not too bad but came at a price sacrificing freedom, well-being, peace of mind, and most of all family time.
When I came home I was just too tired or I was on the phone talking with clients fixing problems and most of the time when I was finished everybody was ready for Or already in bed fast asleep.
My wife had weird work times, either she was at work or sleeping when I got home.
The sad part was I did not get to see or ask how their day went or just spend quality time.
Things happened and had a couple of road accidents in 2015, (thank God no one was injured) which I am taking were warning signs from the Man above, I decided to re-think my work and what it was doing to me and my family.
In 2016 we had our first little angel, a beautiful baby girl, now this I know was a blessing in disguise and knew that my work habits had to change.
If I continued with this kind of work most likely I would not see my daughter grow up.
Asked my company if I could work from home some days, but unfortunately, they did not support me.
I had to do something soon before something bad happened, as it happens the Man above intervened again and I was forced to retire, so decided to see if what I could do from home while looking after our daughter.
“No one should ever have to sacrifice special moments in life, just to put food on the table.”
“No one should ever have to choose between work and family.”
“Never take things for granted”
Long story short…A friend suggested I try Internet Marketing, so here I am happy to say life is so much better now and have met so many good people in this Endeavour.
I aim to keep a good relationship with all of you as well.
