Over the last decade, many full-time employees have made the bold decision to resign from their jobs and pursue a home-based business.
The primary motivator for people making this decision is the need for independence, as well as a desire to choose their own hours, and to have more time for their families.
However, the ongoing global pandemic created a greater influx of people working from home as one of the World Health Organisation approved measures of curbing the spread of COVID-19.
Sierra Leone's Chief Innovation Officer (CIO) for the Directorate of Science, Technology and Innovation, David Moinina Sengeh, created a perfect image of what it is like to work from home.
There are some challenges that everyone working from home must overcome in order for them to be successful and for Sengeh, his challenge is his daughter.
Taking to Twitter to narrate how he had to deal with his 10-month-old daughter while attending a zoom meeting, the CIO left many tweeps inspired while others could not help but adore his girl.
"Working from home? How did you join your last zoom call? As minister, I started my last call feeding my 10-month-old, then carried her on my back for the rest of the call," he tweeted .
Strapped on his back, the little girl posed with a cheeky smile as though she understood what she had put her father into.
She, however, fell asleep after she got bored with the presentations that were going on in the meeting and we can only hope her father was able to finish the meeting uninterrupted.
"The presentations helped her sleep. I invite you to share with the world how you worked from home as a leader," he added.
Several other leaders also shared photos of themselves nursing and attending to their children while working from home to encourage each other.
"I work from home in the laundry room while holding Google meetings with my students, while also navigating remote learning with my six-year-old son," wrote Jason Matthew.
"Got into my cassava farm this morning and prepared a place for pumpkin which will be planted in two days time. Right now I am in the office as medical personnel," said Irene.
