A call out to Moms (And Dads)!
Don’t let society (or certain politicians) tell you that you cannot stay home and raise your children, or that by doing so will cause you to get less wages when/if you do return to the workforce. Don’t be afraid of “losing” your status or place in a career field (if you are meant to return to that career it will happen). If it is about the money, there are options. And if it means enough to you or “you would give anything to stay home with them” (which I hear ALL the time) then do your research and take that step.
Now if you are currently working, and would rather be with your kids, step back and think about what your “job” is costing you. Emotionally (don’t you miss your kids?), physically (stress, sedentary lifestyle), money (what do you spend on gas, car, business clothes, childcare, etc), life experiences (you only get days off when your boss approves it, right?). Is that really worth it?
First of all, take away all that money you spend having that “job,” along with things maybe you don’t NEED to buy and see what you actually need for that 2nd income. It is probably not as much as you think. Second, look at the possibility of residual income as an affiliate with a great company. You can make extra money and have the freedom to stay home and live life in your own way (NOT the way a politician tells you is “good for America”).
Choose your priorities. Is shaping your children more important or do you want the government to do that (I certainly do not)? Is taking your children out in the world to learn more important or would you rather be sitting in that cubicle doing paperwork for some corporation (is THAT why you are here on Earth?)?
These are life-changing realizations. Let’s get real. The time is NOW. We don’t know what the future holds but I can tell you that if you don’t take the “risk” then what is the point of it all? I know people want change, I know we can work together as a community to create this change. Take action and Join me!
