Full time housewife / Part time working mom at home
I have been a full time housewife since 2008 because of the favor of my husband. It is better to take good care of our child while he is working abroad.
I did not regret my decision because the result is priceless. I raised my son well.
My son is grown up now and he did not need much care than before so I decided to search for a job to help my family’s needs, even a part time job, like working at home.
I heard about online jobs or working at home through the internet, social media and even the television. I had an idea, this is the way it will work while I am at home. I had no idea about what is an online job or freelancer but, because this is the only job I can fit in, I studied on my own to learn what I need to work at home.
I also asked help from my close friend to train me on some skills that I will need in working online. I am thankful because she is kind and supportive.
She taught me first the basics, like how to navigate Google Sheets, CRM like Salesforce, Linkedin Sales Navigator and other tools that I will use because her target is to work for her as a data entry and lead generation assistant. While she is training me, I was afraid because I know that I am not a fast learner but what gave me the feeling of I will succeed is that I am dedicated to learn a lot for this job.
After all training she hired me as a part time lead generation assistant from February 2018 to January 2020. All I learned from the training is that I am thankful for her because even if it is a part time job, this is a big help to me and my family. Working since 2018 I have saved a little amount of money. The hard work has paid off and added a meaning to my life.
For now I am still a working mom, taking care of my son and thinking what else I can do for the future.
