I didn't take a very long maternity leave. By having my own business, instead of a day job like Medical Assistant Jobs or in an office, any time I take off is time I need to work a little harder to build back up when I return, you know? So my last chocolate party before the baby was September 16, and now I started back again by doing a show yesterday.
This doesn't mean I've just been eating bon bons, though. I've done plenty of work from home via email and phone. That has been paying off so far, as I've got five more shows between now and mid-November. I figure this time last year I was doing six to eight shows per month, so I'd like to work back to that in a hurry. November is our biggest sales month - I want my slice of the pie!
