Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
I was a teaching professional before the pandemic who had become a full-time mom with no helping hand! Then started looking for WFH jobs!
When I was pregnant by 5 months, lockdown hit the world. I was scared and confused. Like me, everyone on this planet has gone through this phase of anxiety during the lockdown period. As I love reading and watching informative videos and tutorials, I started discovering how the world is changing.
Before delivering a baby, I was planning to have a side hustle. Like every young woman, I was dreaming of having a work-life balance, work from home job. I was unaware of the struggles of a new mom. I was daydreaming like anything.
On August 2020, I delivered a cute little daughter and a roller coaster ride of my emotions started. When you have your first baby, everyone comes to give free advice, and I was not an exception. From feeding the baby to having good sleep and health issues, I had gone through many challenges.
How to handle a baby?
How to feed?
What to feed?
Baby care videos were the new playlists in my YouTube feed. I was a teaching professional before the pandemic and had become a full-time mom with no helping hand in the family as my mother-in-law is aged and weak. I was enjoying motherhood at the cost of my freedom.
My baby was like any other healthy baby. She learned to sit when she was 8 months old. Her teeth started to grow when she was nine months old. I started giving liquid foods to her for 8 months. I stopped feeding them when she was 15 months old. Finally, she started walking when she was 15 months old.
I started to reduce dependencies like feeding or cradling for hours. When she was 1.5 years old, I stopped to make her sleep in the cradle and started making her sleep in bed with me.
It was a new habit and I struggled for 15 days to make this happen. Because cradling stopped me to focus on other household work and made me busy every time, I took that decision.
I started looking for work-from-home jobs. Thanks to the pandemic, this trend has helped many new moms like me. I was a very good reader and writer, so I started for looking internships for writing positions.
With God’s grace, I was selected as an intern as a creative content writer in a firm in March 2022. My daughter was 1.5 years old at that time.
I had to spend 2 to 3 hours daily on the tasks. I was adapting myself to this change. After completing an internship of three months, I received a job offer with a very low salary.
I did not want to miss this opportunity as the position was a content writer work-from-home position. On June 2022, I started my career as a Content Writer at a company.
Today I have 10 months of experience in writing articles on different niches. I have some freelance clients. All my hard work is paying off now, and I am happy. I want to say that, never give up. Start hustling and you will find your way one day. Be consistent and have patience.

"If someone compliments you, should you go and complain to the HR? Arrey, at least listen to what they are saying, girls! Why are you so uptight about all this all the time?!"
Marathi and Hindi film actor Sonali Kulkarni put her foot in mouth recently about how “Bharat mein bahut sari ladkiyan hai jo aalsi hai‘’ (In India there are many young women who are lazy). Her speech which drew claps (as she demanded) from the MRAs, makes a sheer mockery of women.
