My name is Paula, and I am just switching into WAHM mode. I have been home for 3.5 years, since the birth of my son, and now also have a one year old daughter. Prior to being a mother, I worked in advertising and had worked my way up to an Account Director in charge of the major accounts at an advertising agency.
Motherhood changed those plans, however, and I love being a stay-at-home mom. A few things are pushing me back into the workforce, though. First, I sometimes feel that my brain is just not as sharp as it once was, and I want to keep challenging myself in new ways. Second, with the current economy, our usual standby of my husband's bonus and raise have gone out the window, so additional income would be welcome.
As such, I want to start an at-home business of proofreading and editing, both of which I did at the advertising agency. I will be posting the challenges and tidbits of starting a business, and will hope for some encouragement and criticism where needed.
First things first. I am currently trying to think of a name, and could use some help. I originally thought of "Miss Takefree Communications", but none of my friends got the "Mistake Free" connection. Any other opinions?
