A Trip to Market Basket Gone Sour

I went to Market Basket today with my three kids in tow. I normally try to plan shopping for a weekend or a day when I have no children but today there is no school and Friday is the day when money hits the bank account to get some amount of food for the home. This week it was especially important that I go grocery shopping to at least get thru the weekend because we had peas and egg noodles for dinner last night we are that out of food here. A grocery trip at some level was required today. […]

The Joys of Self Employment

Working from home is a blessing, and honestly I am not so sure “anyone” can do it, even though I have said that in the past. The reason I am starting to believe that not everyone can do it is because it’s extremely difficult to step away from work when it’s family time if your office is in your home. All too often I have to shut down my computer because I will be tempted to come in and do some work during family time. I am just that into my work and addicted to making money. Being self employed […]

Why it’s important to have health and safety training

The modern workplace is safer than it has ever been, and part of the reason for this is that in recent years many businesses have chosen to make a concerted effort when it comes to health and safety education and training. The health of a workforce is down to the employer supplying the necessary equipment, conditions, and training to ensure a safe working environment.  Employees have a duty of care to themselves and their colleagues, and need to ensure that they use equipment properly and follow all instructions and training provided to them by their employers. Key areas for health […]

Charge Clients for Every Work Hour

You arrive for work in the morning at the office and clock into the time clock, from there every minute you work is tracked by your employer. There is no worry about “how many hours did I work” or “did I take my break today” because your employer keeps track of all the small details in their human resource department. When you work from home having the time clock track all of your work hours is not an option, although you can track your own working hours using software like TimeLoc, you still need to be sure to clock every […]

Previous Job Working with Corporate Employee Benefits Broker

I worked in an office with a corporate employee benefits broker prior to leaving due to being sick all of the time while pregnant with my second child.

Some Things Best Left Unsaid

I have a confession to make; I tell the whole truth, beyond the truth with more details than I really need to say. I suggest that this beyond truth telling is simply adding more details to a simple truth than need be. I know that many enjoy my honesty and outspoken nature but sometimes it simply gets me into situations where I wish I hadn’t said anything at all, or at least without so many details. You see when someone is asking you about what you do from home or how much money you make they really do not need […]

Just One of my Outside of Home Jobs

I can’t remember when I first started working from home, I know for sure it was in the middle of AJ’s pregnancy or shortly towards the end and he is now four years old. I have been working from home a very long time to say the least and it’s a struggle but I love that I am able to do this. One of the jobs I used to have outside of the home was a film librarian at a local hospital and I do miss parts of that job. I used to be able to wear Scrubs to work […]
