When my college-age son told me he wanted to spend some time with me and could we go to a movie, I told him ‘Absolutely! And this is one reason I love my job.’ When my teenage daughter wanted her friends to come for waffles with chocolate chips and whipped cream before school, I said, ‘Yes, invite everybody over. That sounds like fun!’ When my neighbor called needing a ride to get his radiation treatment, I told him, ‘Absolutely! Just tell me what time you need it.’ When the car broke down, and I needed extra cash to get it fixed, I said, ‘No problem. I’m so glad I have a good job.’

Working from home requires some juggling of responsibilities and priorities, but having the opportunity to put on the clown costume every day and do the juggling act is far more fun and satisfying than any 8:00 p.m.–5:00 p.m. job I could ever have. I love the variety and the flexibility—the fact that if I want to, I can do it at 6:00 the morning, at 2:00 in the afternoon, at 8:00 at night, or after midnight. I love that I can work in my bare feet while sitting next to my daughter doing her homework or while the house is quiet and the kids are at school. I love that I don’t have to fill up the gas tank very often or buy a professional wardrobe, eating away my earnings. And I love that I have found something I’m good at.

Working for School Webmasters is the legit work-from-home job that I have loved for over ten years, and I’m looking forward to many more. It’s the best!
