Torn Between Work And Kids

Are you a working mother with huge responsibilities at work, yet trying to manage the fort at home to the best of your ability? Have you ever felt torn between work and kids, knowing your preference is to be with your little ones at home, but you have an obligation to your company as you are on their payroll?

If your answer is yes, you may want to do a self-assessment and then decide if you want to transform your life!

Is Your Work Robbing You of Precious Family Time?

Does your work require you to:

- endure a lengthy commute to/from work daily

- travel abroad often

- stay back late in the office frequently

- meet crazy datelines

- regularly bring work home to complete

- entertain clients frequently

Is this happening in your household?

- your husband is complaining about your ungodly hours

- you missed your baby's first smile and first step

- you are abroad for work during your son's first concert

- if baby is sick, you and your husband scamper to get leave

- you are physically and mentally drained by the end of each working day, you barely have energy to play with your kids

- you get irritated with your kids easily due to work stress

- your weekends are spent in front of your computer, so you can meet your Monday dateline. Outing with the kids? What outing?

Is This What You Want In Life?

If the scenarios above aptly describe you, you may want to take a step back and reassess if this is the type of life you want to lead. One where your time is dictated by your employer, where your loved ones take a backseat, and most importantly, not being there for your kids!

If you decide that it is time for a change, time for you to take control of your life, to spend your time the way you want to, with whomever you choose to, then allow me to share with you a transformational program which changed my life.

How Can You Transform Your Life?

I was also working prior to becoming a stay-at-home-mum (SAHM). What I missed after becoming a SAHM is of course, the regular paychecks. But nothing can compare to being there for your kids. Money can still be earned, but you can never turn back the clock to your child's early years when they need you most. Your child's early years are also the most crucial development stage, when they can absorb knowledge easily and effortlessly, so it is important to optimize this critical window for learning.

What did I do? I decided to start an online business so that I could earn some income, whilst still being at home. I spent many hours searching, getting scammed, learning and am glad I finally found a legitimate business opportunity! I would be honoured if you decide to transform your life and join me in my most amazing learning institution, where I have learnt everything, from niche picking, to building websites to keyword research to monetizing my websites!

Please feel free to leave any comments, I would love to hear what you have to say!
