“I picked you because I wanted to work with a mum.”
Granted, at first glance this may sound a bit creepy, but his logic made sense. Freelance parents:
- Are passionate about what they do because they choose what they work on.
- Are highly skilled specialists so only ever produce the best quality work.
- Don’t work 9-5, which is great when your clients are up working all hours.
- Are human – all corporate bluffery is gone when you’re changing a nappy mid-conference call, your son farts mid-way through a meeting and your baby vomits all over your suit jacket (and before you ask, yes, all these things have happened to me).
