I worked as a therapist for 15 years. The work was great but if I wasn’t with a client then I wasn’t making any money. I was told over and over how good of a job I had. But what people didn’t see was the anxiety I would get from having to ask for time off, the dread I felt Sunday nights knowing I had to work on Monday or the long hours that were exhausting.
Two years ago we moved out of state and I found a lovely job as a nanny but it was a short term solution with an end date. COVID was in full force and I was hesitant to look for a new job but bills and life meant I needed money. I am so grateful I found an opportunity to make the income I needed from the safety and comfort of my home. Now, I don’t have to ask anyone for time off, I can decide how my Monday morning looks and if I’m exhausted or sick I can lay in bed and take care of myself. The best part is that I can continue to make the income I need on my own terms and in my own time. I’ve been able to do it and you can too!
