Guest post written by my buddy Aldo Mays
Last year I decided that I wanted to go back to work after 10 years of being a stay at home mom. I was scared, and I knew that finding a job would be tough. The economy is already bad, and when you factor in my 10 years if inactivity in the professional world, my chances of getting a job were pretty grim. I knew I needed to do something untraditional if I wanted to succeed. A friend of mine who is a freelance writer said she would send me some work, and I thought that was a great way to get started. I’m a good writer, and then I could at least put something recent on my resume. The one problem is that I didn’t have an internet connection at home, so I had to get wild blue and then I could get started. So far things have worked out. My friend sends me a set of prompts to write about every week, and then I send back the completed files. I feel lucky to have such a great job where I can work from home and I set my own hours. I’m glad I’m not bogged down by a traditional desk job.
