The opportunity to work from home, on my terms, has always been a dream of mine. The joy of not having to pay for latchkey for my daughter because I can drop her off and pick her up during school hours or accompany her on a school field trip, maybe evening volunteering as girl scout troop leader for her troop, are the little joys I wish I could have. Fortunately, for me, I have always been blessed with a career that allowed me to provide for my family, that made those little joys not as important. If I had it my way, I would find an opportunity that would allow me to balance my joys and my career. What better opportunity, than one that would enable me to determine my work schedule while making enough to support my family.
I created this blog, for four reasons.
- The main reason is to showcase my creative talents in the DIY space. I get all tingly inside just thinking about it 🙂
- To track my progress and be a beacon of hope for those with similar interests as myself.
- To share resources, I come across to include; freelance gigs, spotlight companies looking for talent on a short-term basis, and best practices for work at home professionals
- To connect with others who are going through the same process or have overcome the growing pains in this career and can provide guidance and support
DIY Mogul is primarily about taking life by the horns, and doing it yourself! Whether this means investing time creating DIY projects, which I enjoy, or transiting to work for yourself as a Freelancer. The sky is the limit and no one needs to create boundaries for you. You can do it yourself! The best part about working for yourself is you can make great money pursuing what you enjoy. I’ve chosen a few outlets to start my journey. I’m a self-published author, a DIY blogger, Graphic Designer and a Freelancer.
My goal is to create a space of opportunity for others to use to help jumpstart their dreams of living the life they envisioned. I get it, this lifestyle and career choice isn’t for everyone. Working for yourself requires a lot of discipline and planning. As it stands today, I am still working a nine to five career and still peeking through my window of hope to one day make that giant leap. My plan is to gradually make small decisions and investments to set me up for that transition. When I do, I hope those who are eager to do so, will also be inspired to when the time is right.
