The task of juggling work with family commitments can seem like a difficult step for some. Going to work when your mind is elsewhere is a common issue facing many working mothers. 32 year old Danielle Beltramelli found this a very familiar situation indeed.
Being a working mother, Danielle’s main joy in life came from spending valuable time at home with her 2 year old daughter. When she wasn’t at home she was at the bank where she was working part time – two days a week. Wanting to improve her lifestyle she decided that she wanted to earn more money. Her main problem – she didn’t want to be working in an office at the expense of the time she could be spending at home.
She had to look for a different way of doing things. Living in modern times, she knew that the internet would open up a world of opportunities……
So Danielle began looking for internet businesses that she could run from home. She was looking to earn a second income in a career which gave her the flexibility she needed.
“I wanted to earn more money as I was only working at the bank for 2 days a week but I didn’t want to increase my hours there. I have a 2 year old daughter and didn’t want to have to send her to daycare for me to work, so I wanted something I could do from home which is how I came across the Activ Web Design license opportunity”
Activ was instantly impressed by Danielle’s passion and gave her an Australian license for Activ Web Design. Creating professional and affordable websites from the comfort of her own home meant that Danielle could be at home with her family and choose how many hours she wanted to put in.
Being a working mother with two part time careers meant that Danielle should have had a demanding lifestyle. Wrong – the Activ opportunity gave her the level of flexibility that she needed.
“Its a great opportunity to have my own business whilst being a stay at home mum. The Activ Web Design opportunity is going great, I am thoroughly enjoying it. It fits in very well with my lifestyle and my business is getting busier every day. I choose my own hours and work whenever I can around my responsibilities. At the moment I’m probably putting in around 10 hours a week so this level of choice is great for me and my family”
And its not just work and family commitments that Danielle seems to find time for. Danielle realises the importance of also making time for herself. The Activ Web Design opportunity did not risk her social life as she could choose to work around her social commitments – in fact she was now earning money so it helped!
“I love the fact that I decide when to work as I don’t think I could be without socialising with my friends and going shopping – I may be a working mother with two jobs but its important to have a bit of ‘me’ time”
The biggest benefit of all that came with the Activ opportunity – she didn’t go it alone. Danielle received unrivalled support from the Activ head office in areas such as sales/marketing and technical support. Talking about the licensee support package Danielle adds
“The guys from the support team are very friendly. They deal with all my questions extremely quickly and are more than willing to take the time to explain things thoroughly”
Danielle took the first step… and she didn’t regret it.
