Show Notes

Welcome to Parents in the Know, with Emily M Morgan. Today, I’m going to take you through the final chapter (for now) of my own story. In previous episodes you learned about my decision to become a single mother by choice, how I struggled through intense morning sickness, when I’d imagined pregnancy would be a breeze, how my life changed as a single parent and how perinatal depression left me slightly dented and in need of support and a complete lifestyle change. In this fifth and final instalment, I will talk you through my decision to start a business and how it came together. My Story – Starting a Business, today on Parents in the Know.

After my brush with perinatal depression, I moved back across the country to Tasmania to live with my mother. My daughter and I spent the first couple of months recovering and acclimatizing to our new home – and my mother did much the same. It is lucky we are so close, and, with a few hiccups around tidiness with a toddler in the mix, we all settled down very comfortably together.

Did I want to return to work? The answer was an emphatic no. My depression couldn’t account for the distaste I had felt in those last few months at work, jumping through managerial hoops and trying to find some motivation to do the work I was assigned. The job, which I had at first relished and which had definitely helped and challenged me, no longer had the same appeal. Much as I enjoyed training and managing staff, I wanted to get away from people for a while. And I couldn’t bear the thought of working at an admin job, keeping books for someone else or managing someone else’s documents. If admin work was to be a part of my life, I wanted it to be for my own purposes.
