This is my first official week (well short week because of Thanksgiving) that I've left my dental office in London where I worked for almost 13 years. I was able to do this and teach full time from home. It was a hard decision to leave my office of 13 years but it was mainly hard because more recently I become a Restorative Dental Hygienist. I spent $10,000 to learn this skill at school and now walking away from it? Well, yes. My time is NOW to see how far this teaching can take me and what's to say I can't do both? :). First things first....
This week my days have consisted of waking up at 7am to let the doggies out to pee and feed them. I relax on the couch infront of the fire with a healthy smoothie, and afterwards a tea, I watch a show or movie on Netflix while the puppies nap (yup, they seriously nap after walking up). By 9am I start teaching my dental hygiene/dental assisting students whatever the topic is for that day. I do this, with little breaks until 2pm.
Afternoon consists of taking the dogs for a walk, probably having another snack (I'm always hungry), tidying up the house and maybe recording a video or two for my YouTube channel.
Sometimes I work until 2pm, sometimes 4pm, or sometimes 5pm when Tom gets home. I enjoy cooking (sometimes haha) and usually start prepping or dinner around 5pm.
That's it :). I'm home, not crazy travel time, no gas being spent, and I can basically change my hours if needed. Our lives are way too busy to be chained to a 9-5 job, which usually means waking up at 6am to get ready and leave, travel time, being exhausted by 3pm, leaving from work at 5:30, coming home even more exhausted, having to make dinner, talk to your significant other about your exhausting day, and sleep.
I prefer working from home :).
