15 years, straight out of college I was plucked from the applications a tiny bud with a new degree in Business Finance and emphasis on Risk Management/Analysis. Then came Mergers and Acquisitions. Losing my husband who died fighting a war i didn't understand and having just adopted twins that were 3 months old 1 week before being deployed...The job i loved so much and 15 years of success, loving the job and being employed by a corporation that allowed me to spread my wings and continue education, I now had to leave so i could figure out how, when, why, what I was going to do now. Raising twin babies alone..now forever. Daddy wasn't coming home, he was now a casualty of war and no body to send home, he was gone gone. No funeral no good byes and i couldn't focus any longer on my successful rewarding fulfilling job I thrived at for 15 years. . I had to get away so I moved and found myself in serenity for now but it was career suicide. There are no jobs within 250 miles of where I live and still have not gotten final report, so no benefits from the government. Im looking for REAL reputable corporation looking to fill a work from home position in finance and Risk management and Analysis. Has anyone out there had success with transferring from corporate office Monday-Friday to work from home and still be financially rewarded while being successful and regain their career with a from home position? The corporation I worked for has always and still does ask me to come back but its just a part of what was our old life and compensated me well for quite some time before I decided I was going to officially resign.
I would like to add this..I shared a part of my story as REMINDER, as women we can resurrect ourselves, break through the pain..but sometimes, when greif blinds us we tend to lose sight of what damage not taking time to get healthy can do long term to not only us but our children. So many kids dont have even the basic emotional tools as video games and such has allowed for absent parenting. My choice I dont regret if it took me having to be less successful in life to ensure success for my kids I will always chose the healthiest path for them. As all mothers do, right.
