It’s always fun to run a giveaway! And this one is extra fun for me as I’ll be giving away an unlimited class pass to the WAHM Weekend Expo happening on October 25. Yey!
The WAHM community has grown exponentially in the past two years, from the time that the first WAHMderful Workshop was organized in 2012, and it continues to grow every day. More and more professionals are now opting to work from home to escape the horrors of the daily commute. Mothers who have been staying at home to care for their children are now actively pursuing income-generating activities to help out with the family finances. In fact, we are no longer limiting this event to just WAHMs. Everybody’s invited to join us this year, so you can explore the possibility of engaging in a business, or practicing your profession, from the comfort of your home.
So who is everybody?
You, who are a gainfully employed head of the family, but dreaming of spending more time with your little ones because you are missing out on their milestones.
You, who are employed in a company you hate because you are doing tasks you no longer enjoy.
You, who are a creative person but stuck in a technical job.
You, who wake up at 4 am to get to your desk at 7am, and leave your desk at 5pm, but reach home at 8pm. Darn traffic!
You, who had to miss your daughter’s birthday party because the boss called for a strategic planning on a weekend.
You, who spend almost half your gross salary on transportation, lunch allowance and wardrobe.
You, who have to sacrifice your privacy so you can have a helper to cook your food, clean your house, and take care of your children.
But maybe you are not any of the persons above. Maybe you just want to be able to work in bed, or at the park, with your bare feet up, without a bra, hair going all directions, and not care. Or maybe you just want to be able to go see a movie or run your errands on a weekday to avoid long queues. Or maybe you just want to make everyday cuddle day with your little ones. Or homeschool!
Whoever you are, and whatever is your motivation, you are invited!
