I have a new passion project — helping other moms become a mompreneur. Let me explain more.
I have never been one of those girls to dream about their wedding or dream about having kids. I mean I always assumed I would get married and have kids, but it wasn’t at the top of my list. I did, however, dream of my career. I didn’t have one specific career in mind of what I wanted to do, but it was always fun for me to think ahead.
After I had kids, that all changed. I no longer wanted to work long hours away from my family, but instead wanted to be there with my kids every day. I couldn’t bear the thought of dropping my kids off at daycare. I was nearly brought to tears thinking that my children might spend more awake time with a stranger than they would with their parents. I go more into more detail in this post.
So I knew that I wanted to be home with my children, but had no idea how that would work out financially. I mean, it’s great to know that you want to be a stay at home mom, it’s another thing completely to make it happen financially. Going from two incomes to one income is a huge deal.
Cue my superhero husband. The same husband that started saving the minute we found out I was pregnant so I could take a full 12 weeks maternity leave. We canceled some monthly memberships and downgraded some of our other monthly bills (sorry about your ESPN package dear husband).
When all the numbers were crunched, we ended up being able to make it work! It would be tight, but we would survive. We would actually have to stick to a budget, but we were all in if it meant that I could stay home with my kids.
Being a stay at home mom was great. I loved being with my children through every milestone. But something was still missing. That desire to accomplish something more was still with me. But was it even possible to be a stay at home mom and still do something with my career? I mean, I still had dreams of being able to take my kids on vacation and I hated worrying about money every month.
So I decided to be a mompreneur. That’s right, a mom and an entrepreneur. It’s not easy, but it’s been an amazing journey. I’ve been a blogger, freelance writer, virtual assistant, social media manager, and blog manager. And I know there will be more! I never imagined having financial freedom while still being present in my kids’ life 100%. And now that I know it’s possible, I want to help make it possible for every other mom who has the desire to be home with their kids.
I probably get asked about how I was able to become a work at home mom more than any other question. So I’ve created a Facebook group — Become A Mompreneur. We discuss legit work at home job opportunities and I give all out tips on how you can become a mompreneur too. There are also so many other work at home moms in the group and it’s really a community to help each other out! Where do I find work opportunities? What can I do with my skills? How do I find the time to be a stay at home mom and become a mompreneur? We even talk about life together as moms.
If I can become a mompreneur and stay home with my kids, you can too.
Join my Facebook Group here and start your journey to becoming a mompreneur a gaining financial freedom while not missing a minute with your kids.
