Working from Home with a Special Needs Child

Working At Home Mums (12)      Career (7)     
Hi. I'm Jennifer,I'm 30 years old, from Bayswater in the East of Melbourne. At the start of this year I decided I would get my families finance under control by starting an at home business to take some of the stress of my partner who works 6 nights a week.

I had a lot of people tell me I wouldn't be able to do it without sacrificing some time from my children (10yo Hailey-Grace, 8yo Jakob and 2 1/2yo Lily - Fay) especially since lily had special needs (Spastic Diplegic Cerebal Palsy.)



myself and my kids


I put it on the back burner till a friend told me about Scentsy. Wow, what a company to work for, more like a family.



One of our many many warmers


I can stay home and work around my kids selling our beautiful smelling melts and our wonderful designed burners, that are so safe around children, no flames, no smoke.



The wax bars are made from food grade parafin wax and all products are gluten, toxin and animal cruelty free. Products have a lifetime warranty.

Everything revolves around my kids activities and Lily's doctor appointments. I'm never stressed about having to do a order on a certain due date or have so many parties a month. I feel relaxed and I'm having fun while having my kids by my side.

All ordering I do online and the products are sent to the customer, so no extra clutter at my house, either.

I have had a full time job before I had Lily, and no way now would I ever be able to go back to a full time job and work long hours, and be as flexible with her appoints as with working with Scentsy.

Lily needs full time around the clock care, her type of Cerebal Palsy, the tendons in her lower legs are too tight, and make her 'tip toe' walk. Lily is unable to walk as yet, but we will get there.

Lily is attending CPEC (Cerebal palsy educational centre) where she will learn all new wonderful things while doing physio therapy, speech therapy and many more awesome things. They are an amazing group of people.

With out Scentsy being so family orientated and flexible, I wouldn't be able to attend any of Lily's appointments without sacrificing work hours and pay.

This year will be a big year for us, hopefully to get Lily walking and for myself to be more confident and stress free with my new venture
