Prior to getting married, I can say that I’ve been a successful careerwoman.
Unbelievable as it may seem, I got offered the job of a chief accountant right after passing the CPA Board Exams when I was 21 years old. After some time, I got tired of the job and wanted to learn something new so I applied at a multi-national company and became a financial analyst. Too much stress in the metropolis made me go back to the slow-paced provincial life where I worked as a provincial accountant of a national government agency. Then I was recruited to work as a chief finance officer of another multi-national shipping agency whose manning agency in the Philippines just caters solely to the needs of their vessels.
Fast forward to the present. I am now a stay at home wife and mother.
I thought losing a career meant losing my financial independence but after discovering the ways to earn online, I am now back to being financially independent. My income is still less than what I was earning when I was still working (way less) but now, I can buy things that I wanted without having to ask for my hubby for money. I can now buy and give him gifts from my own pocket. There are even times when I can even afford to do our groceries, treat my family to a sumptuous meal in a cozy restaurant.
Most of my income came from writing blog posts. I used to accept paid posts that costs $3 per article but now, my paid articles are $15 on the average. I also earned from affiliate commissions and the free stuffs that I receive from reviews can be considered income too (in a way). I am also earning from doing blog designs although that one is more of a hobby and a way to sharpen my mind (I love tweaking codes!).
There are other ways to earn from home. I just focus on earning online because I love the internet as well. Seems like a win-win situation for me.
How about you, do you earn from home too?
