As the co-founder of the jewelry and interior brand memorini I find that there are definitely a lot of benefits to having a business especially if you are a parent. I am going to list some of the benefits here:
1. I don’t have to send my daughter Veronica back to preschool when she has a cold before she fully recovers; I can stay at home with her as long as it takes to let her completely recover from the cold. Meanwhile, I work from home. Last week I stayed at home with my daughter Veronica for a week until she was fit to go back to preschool again. This is beneficial to the other kids at my daughter’s preschool as well because they will stay safe from catching a cold from my daughter.
Here is a photo of Veronica with her schoolmate and friend Ratin.
2. We can leave Veronica at peschool not too early and I can pick her up early. I leave her at 9 a.m. and we pick her up at 3 p.m. instead of 4 of 5 p.m.
3. In case, her school calls me and says that Veronica is sick and that I need to pick her up I won’t need to ask a boss’ permission to leave the office nor will I have to report to a boss that I’ll have to go pick up our daughter because I basically have no boss. Hahaha. In fact I am my own boss.
4. If my daughter has a doctor appointment I can easily take some time off work and take my daughter to her appoitment.
I will mention the other benefits at some other time.
