I'm Joyce Pusta
The brains and beauty behind Unfetter life. I’m a SAHM, introvert INFJ, a mother of 3, making the most of my lowkey lifestyle while enjoying the mishaps and successes in motherhood.
I have stayed home since I was 6 months pregnant with my eldest son and I knew I didn’t want to go back to working in the corporate. Being a college drop out the competition in finding a job in the corporate world is no mean feat. I started working at an early age and no matter how much I tried making more money my paycheck was still not enough.
Blogging has always been a dream that was never made to fruition. I like to write but I am scared of putting myself out there because people are mean. I started making a WordPress blog in 2013 and posted a few stories but later on, I deleted the entire site and never touched blogging again.
What’s holding me back from pushing what I’m most passionate about is my lack of confidence and living in a toxic environment (that’s what made me say “people are mean”). Overthinking, comparison, fear of rejection, competition and people’s opinions sucked the life out of me plus I didn’t have much support but deep inside I knew that I can make it work.

But how did I get here? It took a decade until I caught the blogging bug and I’m still totally in awe that this little blogging of mine is finally in the works. By the end of 2020, I took the leap of faith and started making things happen. I took an online course called WordPress & Marketing from Coursebelt, you can learn more about it here.
Little by little with consistency, I finally made my dream website. I bet you’re also wondering the same thing as you are reading this. You have questions like how did you do it? Is it really possible? Can you make money out of it? My answer to all of that is a huge YES! It absolutely is possible.
As you know I got my hands full from being a mother of three plus working a full-time job. That’s also a part of the reason why my blogging dream was put on hold for at least almost a decade. I am grateful though that I waited this long because it is for a good reason which I will share in a different blog post. In the meantime, you can read more about how I balanced my life as a mom of three while working a full-time job here.
So what do I do for a living prior to all this? I work from home as a Virtual Admin Assistant for small to medium-sized businesses across the United States and some parts of Europe since 2012, the work I do is centered around assisting business owners in their day-to-day administrative operations.

I love what I do so much, what’s FUN about my job is that I work straight from home. I haven’t only met people from these places but I also got to work with them and was even included in their competitive teams. I also wrote a blog post about my freelancing career experiences and what it looks like, you can read all about that here.
As of this writing, Unfetter Life is still in the making, I haven’t generated income yet but soon I will write about all of that especially the tools that I used, tips and tricks I applied that are a little different from all the mommy blog out there that worked for my business and all the links to this information will also be included. So stay tuned!
