When I was pregnant with my daughter, I worked from home as the director of a nonprofit.
“That’s so nice!” people would say. “You won’t have to pay for childcare!”
I remember being surprised by how many people assumed that I would work from home full-time andwatch my baby full-time. It was hard for me to envision doing both simultaneously, and I knew that if I wanted to be successful at home and at work, I needed to have childcare lined up.
I’ve since changed jobs, and I now work outside of the home. But during the nearly two years that I worked remotely as a mom, I learned a lot about how to handle the benefits and challenges of this setup. I’ve compiled some related tips based on my own experiences, as well as input from other moms I know who work remotely.
