It has been way too long since I did a monthly sum-up. In fact, it has been a while since I maintained a consistent blogging schedule. That will all change over the next month as I focus on creating more content and finish up the free email course – How to be a freelance writer in 10 easy steps! (You can sign up here to receive the course when it is released)
It has been a rough few months, with a few different family illnesses that required my attention, as well as being unwell myself for the last few weeks. Sometimes this is just what life throws at you and it is up to you what you do with it. I chose to let my blog slide so that I could focus on where I was needed. With my family.
This is one of the joys of working from home and creating a business around my family. I choose where and when I work. As I was so busy with my family I took on less freelance work. Now that the concerns with my family have settled, I have taken on more work again. And this is why I love what I do. The ability to be flexible and make it fit around my family (immediate and extended) need. I was able to be there for them, to support and help when they needed it the most.
With a resurgence of my marketing and cold pitching, I have on-boarded some new clients. One of whom I have wanted to work for since forever! Exciting times! It just goes to show that sometimes you need to take that step back for those amazing opportunities to find you, to open new doors.

So far 2019 has not been the super productive year that I predicted! Life and family have taken my focus instead.
But you know what?
I am not disappointed. This is why I choose to be a WAHM and a nurse. My nursing provides a stable and consistent income, whilst working from home is an added bonus. Yes, it would be nice one day to not have to do shift work. But for now, this works for our family. And it has given me the freedom and flexibility to be there for my family when they needed me the most.
