Self-employment does offer flexibility with childcare but you can face financial perils…
I have been a self-employed Aromatherapist since 2004 and a parent to one daughter since 2013. Self-employment is considered by some to be an ideal situation for a working mum but sometimes I wonder if I am ever truly present in either role.
As the mother, if my daughter is unwell her care falls to me and I lose money – no sick pay or holiday pay options – and finding any kind of work/life balance remains the holy grail!
