This role requires effort, organization and definitely communication skills. Such work is based on the trust you build with your customers and your ability to acquire new ones. A great way to promote your business is to create a web site that would serve as your portfolio, showcasing your best work.
Especially for mums, the fact that many companies decided to work remotely in the first place could be a good idea. Because in this way, we can continue to do (or find) our job without having to worry about who will take care of the children.
On the other hand, of course, it is a real challenge to be able to work when our children are in the same place at the same time – especially if they are young and cannot understand that mom is at home but is not precisely available! But let us be optimistic and let us try to achieve it with the most significant possible benefit and the lowest possible (mental) cost.
