This IS it....

I've been a WAHM for about 8 years now...more or less. I started when the little one was a few months old only. I've blogged a few times about it...how I started and what kinds of WAJs I've had so far but my very first post in this blog probably sums it all up pretty good.

Every now and then I get asked by some people I meet how I ended up with the gigs/jobs I now have.

I searched.

Isn't that how one finds a job, usually? I don't really have any secrets. I didn't know anybody who was a WAHM when I started. I just knew I wanted to find something I could do at home to help augment hubby's income especially when the baby came. I spent countless hours searching online. Then I got lucky. That was the break I needed because after that one lucky break, I was able to get my foot in the door of the WAH community.
Perseverance. That's probably the most important thing when one is looking for a job...whether something to do at home or outside the home. Even now that I already the jobs that I have, I don't stop looking. I still search regularly hoping something pops-up. I don't really know what I'm looking for. I'm just looking. Who knows one day I might just stumble upon that one perfect WAHJ that will make me say...this is it.

Here in the Philippines, staying as a WAHM is rare case. Not all can manage to survive. But thank God, I am able to do so for three years now and I am not planning to quit. Just like you, I am always looking... looking for ways how to earn an income from home.
