A Working Mom’s Balancing Act on the Freelancing Tightrope

Striking a good work-life balance post marriage is becoming troublesome for most women today.It is either at the altar of marriage or post delivery, women are compelled to make unexpected career sacrifices.

Millions of women leave their careers to take up more ‘homely’ roles, showcasing clearly that India is yet to shed its patriarchal attitude towards working women. This is aptly summarized in the words of IndraNooyi’s mother when her daughter shared the news that she was to be the president of PepsiCo -

“You might be the President of PepsiCo. You might be on the board of directors. But when you enter this house, you’re the wife, you’re the daughter, you’re the daughter-in-law, you’re the mother. You’re all of that. Nobody else can take that place. So leave the damned crown in the garage. And don’t bring it into the house.”

This proves that striking a good work-life balance post marriage is becoming troublesome for most women today.It is either at the altar of marriage or post delivery, women are compelled to make unexpected career sacrifices. Probably, if we talk about advancing equality in marriage, then we can question: are men ready to scale back their careers for the sake of family?But, whether these decisions ultimately help men to achieve work-life balance is a topic for further research.

However, a rise in flexible working has enabled these women to ditch their typical 9 to 5 job and yet have satisfying and high paying jobs.This is where platforms like eWomen step in with amazing work from home opportunities for them.

Doubt us? Let’s have a look at what these women who registered with eWomen have to say on how freelancing has helped them manage their personal responsibilities with professional goals.

I feel glad to be associated with eWomen! It feels great to have a stress-free and supportive environment, which makes it easier for me to plan things for the next day and spend some quality time with my child. Having worked as a Senior Executive for Bajaj Allianz, I wanted to reach out high in my professional life but things changed after childbirth. I wanted to be there to take care of my toddler, but sacrificing my career did hurt me a little.Being there for my kid was something I wanted to do, but frustration had its way of creeping in.This made me search for a genuine website for work from home jobs, and that’s how I came across eWomen.

For moms like me, it is really easy to manage things if you are well prepared. With a platform like this, it is possible to pursue your career and set your own schedule. All you need to do is plan things properly.

For me, my career and child were of equal importance. But, it was a real struggle to maintain a balance between them. So yes, I had to make a choice and of course, my daughter was my priority. I was happy to have sufficient time for my family but at the same time, I missed having my own identity and financial independence.

I was on the lookout for freelance jobs online and that’s when one of my friends suggested eWomen. It’s been 6 since I have registered with them and my experience has been amazing! I get to explore new things and learn a lot from my mentor.So you see, I get the time to focus on my career without compromising on spending quality time with and caring for my daughter.

 To all those women out there, live your dream and spare some time for yourself. Whatever you love to do, just go and do it!

 Working as a CCE for major firms and balancing my higher studies made me realize I was going nowhere with either. Quitting my job was not easy. I was used to leading a busy life and work was something I couldn’t live without. But I was unable to restart my career as the place where I reside does not have MNCs.

 That was the time when my cousin stepped in as a savior and suggested eWomen. And I must say that the journey has been absolutely amazing! Working from home has made my life easier and exciting. I am able to give my best to each and every project allotted and can comfortably manage my studies and other responsibilities.

 Finding genuine part time jobs online is difficult, but I can say that eWomen is one of the best work from home platforms to opt for. Stress-free projects, work hour flexibility and a supportive team – what more can you possibly ask for?

 These stories are a testament to the fact that working remotely can help you improve your quality of life as well as fulfill your professional aspirations. So, how do you balance your responsibilities? What’s your story?
