Being self-employed and working from home can be an isolating experience. Juggling the demands of hectic family life whilst trying to run and grow a successful business is, without doubt, challenging.
Sometimes working from home can be full of distractions (Washing needs doing? Dishwasher needs emptying? Beds need stripping? Shopping to be done? I hear you!) It can be tough trying to feel professional, confident, motivated and inspired in an environment that is less than ideal.
And what about the loneliness? For many women, working from home is the dream, but what we don’t realise is just how lonely it can get having nobody to bounce ideas off of, to discuss challenges with, to problem-solve with and to generally lean on for support or motivation.
