Looking at your baby can bring a rush of emotion.
Love. Warmth. Protection.. and for a lot of us? The desire to never want to leave them with someone else. To never HAVE to put them in daycare.
For Stacey Nachajaski, it was the same way. Today, I chatted with her about what catapulted her career into the virtual workspace and it is pretty simple. She is a mom that wanted to be with her family.
I am so excited to share this story with you today because the simple parts stop right there.
For most of us, the road to freedom – working for ourselves – is NEVER easy. Stacey and I discuss her success, and just how rocky that path can take to get there. From going with your gut (investing in a $1,000 program without telling her husband!) to deciding to start an in home daycare until she brought on more virtual clients, Stacey HUSTLED. She did the working mom thing that you ALL know so well.
Sit down, pour yourself a coffee, tea, glass of wine, and enjoy – this one is great!
