Overwhelmed but happy - chronicles of a mompreneur

-Overwhelmed but happy- These words describe me to a T these days. The more I've become involved in my online business and with another baby and figuring out how to keep three children alive, the more I've had to divide my time between two paying jobs and 1 unpaid. The unpaid of course is taking care of my children and the two paying are my online business and then the freelance work that I do to supplement. It can be challenging balancing them all and I just can't get it all done and also be with my kids and care for them and also try to be healthy. It was overwhelming before getting pregnant and was overwhelming while being pregnant...

Momming by any means

Yesterday my hubs went back to work after taking paternity leave and it was my first day going back to doing everything - kids, food, school, work, and baby. Oddly enough it was a wonderful day and I was actually able to take the girls swimming AND get in a workout...How did I work out? On a recumbent bike at the gym with a baby over my shoulder! I like that phrase 'by any means' because it aptly describes the life of a mom. I know that in a negative sense it could cause you to think that one doesn't care about the process but just the goal. In my case, it's not that - it's that so much of...

Evolve - my plan for 2017

Today I was reflecting on the whole idea of New Years resolutions. I don't know why this year, it felt like one holiday after another and I'm the type that has a hard time getting over the fact that summer is over, it is hard for me to switch modes from Thanksgiving to Christmas and then to New Years. Especially New Years just felt like it just crept up on us, didn't it? Anyways, so maybe I'm a new years resolution scrooge but I don't like to set myself up for failure. HOWEVER, I must say when it comes to business, it's a totally different thing! With business, I am so aware of how much I need to change how...

A month of thanks for an amazing year

The past week has been a rollercoaster ride for everyone in this country. If you're from Chicago you began with elation and then things got crazy - either you were depressed sad and plotting your exodus from the land of the free or you were elated. What I've found so interesting with the election results and the World series is how on edge I was until very late at night not having any clue who was going to win.  But with the election at least in my world, all I'm seeing is people grieving the results and those who voted for the President elect are the silent majority. I think all of us have been torn by both candidates and...

A mompreneur's first trade show

I wish there was more available out there online about attending trade shows and this one in particular, the ABC kids show. I had seen it on various websites before deciding to attend but the expense to enter was so high it was really a gamble if I should apply or not. I delayed for a while but one podcaster I was in contact with had told me it is a great place to launch a brand. Oddly enough he was only there for a day this year and the brands I had seen who had launched there I didn't see this year! I think the expense grows exponentially as you grow and sometimes it is hard to pencil that...
