How I got the job I moved to Chicago when my oldest was 10 months old, and the company I worked for didn't have an editorial office here. So I started working for them on a project basis and became a freelancer.
How I juggle My oldest is in school, I have two babysitters and my parents help out. I also find myself working nights and weekends. I'm always juggling and it's exhausting.
Why I do it I wanted to be able to spend time with my children but continue to work. This allows me to do both.
Why I love it I was able to build good relationships and I have a good reputation. Even though I'm part-time and a freelancer, I'm committed and reliable and I'm good at what I do.
