Are you a full time work at home individual? Sometimes, it is hard to explain our job nature to our family members or children. Have you ever faced this problem before? Recently, I wanted to register my 2 and ½ years old son to a school nearby. In occupation column, I write “SEO Specialist” as a profession. This is still not a common job type in many countries. I doubt that “Link Builder” or “Article Marketing Specialist” can make even better job title. Luckily, they don’t question more about my job specification there. It’s not the school only that doesn’t understand our job scope, even my mum and dad also don’t know what I am doing here.
Recalling the type of work people believe in traditional world is where we go out from house at 7-8am and return back to home at 6-7pm. This may look like a proper job than compared to work from home individuals. Most parents still can’t accept that we are still working even if we don’t go to work. Sitting in a room for hours viewing monitor in the house doesn’t make us look like doing a real job there. So, is it an odd job to be a SEO specialist? I still remember my parents wears uniform and goes to the work during weekdays. They just can accept me as a working mum because I stay at home.
Personally, I still believe that I’m gifted to be a full time work from home mum. I don’t have to wear uniform to work. I don’t have my superiors that give me target or work schedule to meet. I don’t have boss that screws up whenever he fights with his wife. I don’t have to do hundreds of co-calls every day and get scolded by some strangers. Most importantly, I don’t have to do a routine job from 8 to 5. This kind of freedom is what most of us could dream of. I hope that Government and private companies starts to recognize work from home mums. Other than that, this is a great opportunity for all. Make money online is easy but making enough money that will make us retire or quit our day is hard.
