If I can be a WAHM, should I?

I've had the opportunity to be a WAHM (a work at home mom) and I've also seen all three of my kids go to a day care as infants. I've done the tough commute into the city, leaving super early, and coming home as soon as possible to spend time with them. I've also had the opportunity to work from home or work remotely and also I've worked for myself from home as well.  Having run the gamut of experiences I can give my personal experience and advice to you. First of all, when I had my first child, it was after 5 yrs of deliberate thought and consideration of what I was going to lose out on by having...

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!

How to glean from a webinar without taking the bait

As a budding mompreneur-not-quite-social-media-maven-not-blogging-enough-not-doing-anything-quite-the-right-way, right now I'm probably in the lower echelon of the chain and so this post is for all of you out there like me slowly climbing your way up.  I'm starting to get a lot of ads directed at me because I'm out there on FB joining groups, googling 'how-to's', etc etc and so a lot of sponsored posts come my way proposing to do exactly what I need done. I own an online business and I admittedly sometimes am completely lost as to how to go about doing something. BUT...

Crafting your dreams and possibly nightmares too

Being an entrepreneur sounds like the decision one would make to be like a hired killer or a ninja or something really specialized like a open heart surgeon or something. But for many, it’s something they fell into and though it comes with many risks, there is much potential for reward as well.  In my IG post I commented on how amazing all these bloggers were who were crafting their own dreams by blogging about life, featuring cool products, marketing their brand to the world, and creating a stream of income to allow them to remain at home with their children. It is really an interesting world to witness yet also it is not unlike the struggle I go through...
