Since I've resigned from my corporate job abroad more than 2 years ago, I find ways to make myself busy and productive even at home. Admittedly, I have chosen to retire much earlier than the usual retiring age because of wanting to experience what my corporate job has taken from me for more than 20 years. Even though, I am taking good care of a promising career, deep inside my heart, I am still longing to experience what a normal wife and mother could do like cooking, gardening, baking, decorating my home and spending more time with my kids. My daughter is in her teenage years and I wanted to spend time looking after her, making sure nothing won't go wrong with her. I also wanted to see my eldest receiving his college diploma and starting to begin a career of his own.
So in order to fulfill all these wishes and at the same time remain productive, I've decided to use my other skills working at home. Aside from blogging, I do online teaching and this has given me a new perspective. Currently, I usually spend my week nights teaching and occasionally writing for my blogs. It is indeed a great thing to still be able to earn while in the comforts of my home. Now, I get to do what I really want and still earn on the side. The only thing I face about my online teaching is the undesirable noise around the house like barking of dogs and the likes. I once thought of soundproofing my room with The Best soundproofing foam at Musician's Friend but I'm afraid it would be too costly. Luckily, my students are so easy to deal with and do not mind these occasional noise, mostly from my dogs.
I am currently enjoying the many perks of working at home. No need to spend for unnecessary things like transportation expenses going to work everyday, buying expensive clothes and make up, and other incidental expenses that you need to experience when you go out of your homes everyday. The best part for me also is the convenience that you just need to move around, eat home made foods, do your own things around the house and work for just as little as two to three hours on weekdays and earn instantly!
