About Me

January 6th, 2008

I dreamed of being a work at home Mom for 10 years. At last, I am living my dream.

My Life Shift is for anyone who wants to work at home — whether to take care of kids, escape the corporate rat race, pursue an art or craft, or any other reason. By documenting my own transition from office employee to work at home Mom, I hope to motivate other people to do the same and share whatever tools, tips and resources I discover along the way.

While researching my options for working at home, I discovered many scams for those looking for home businesses. I assure you that all the resources I share in this blog are those that I myself have tried. I will never promote a product or home business that I do not personally know to be a legitimate way to earn money at home. I believe in getting honest pay for honest work. You will not find any get-rich-quick schemes here.

I am a wife and mother of three ages 13, 7 and 1. After 19 years of employment, I now feel ready to stay home, become my own boss, and be a mother first and income earner second.

I have a degree in communication and completed the academic requirements and comprehensive exam for a master’s degree in communication research. Alas, I was busy having babies and didn’t complete my MA. I have 19 years of experience in strategic communication, advocacy, media relations and project management. I have worked in government information, children’s television, and UNICEF. I am also a Childbirth Educator. For two years, I wrote a monthly column in Good Housekeeping Philippines about work-life balance.

Here I am in my (former) UNICEF office with Anton, my youngest child, before he got his first haircut. It took me three children to finally realize my dream to stay home….
