You can do ANYTHING, but not everything!
A difficult, but important lesson to learn.
Have you ever found yourself at a crossroads, confused…maybe feeling anxious or hopeless? I have. It was the beginning of a fresh start, but at the time I had no idea. As they say, I couldn’t see the forest for the trees. I couldn’t be in this amazing corporate career and the full-time wife and mom that I wanted and my heart desired to be. I couldn’t be everything. Anything, but not everything.
After I gave birth to my son, I was faced with the decision that many new mothers have had to make: to return to work or leave their career behind to stay at home with their new baby. Delivery was complicated & we ended up spending 2 weeks in the NICU. I found myself wondering daily, how could I stay home, raise this new baby, & bring in some extra money to support our family?
After a deep discussion with my husband & hours of research later, starting a blog started to sound like the perfect idea. I needed something for me, but also something that could potentially bring in a little money for our family. I learned along the way how to monetize & market, and it became a beloved passion project. It was this creative outlet that had been missing from my life. My blog following grew pretty quickly and almost immediately, I had a post syndicated by the Huffington Post. From there, I was asked to write articles for Scary Mommy, TODAY Parents, and more!
Pinterest became my networking watering hole. My blog views grew almost overnight from Pinterest, and blogger friends began to reach out asking for advice and strategy sessions. My ‘side hustle’ began growing immensely through referrals. After a few months, I decided it was time to turn this newfound passion into a business.
You’ve heard that quote, “I remember when I prayed for what I have today!” I think of that often! Here I am, several years later thriving and still growing.
Now, I am blessed to have been able to hire an amazing team and offer them the opportunity to live their dreams. On top of that? I get to work with the most amazing clients in the world, who are also…living out their dreams! I’ve been there, I’ve done it & would LOVE to help your goals, become your reality.
