I started blogging in 2004 and consider that my original foray into being a work-at-home mom. Since then, that moniker has grown and evolved, but it’s a title I’ve yet to give up.
In 2008, I started a menu planning subscription service as an off-shoot of this blog. Some of you probably remember that and were possibly even members. Then, in 2010 after Jill (our youngest child) was born, things started to slow down on this here blog. I closed up shop with the menu planning and new blog posts became sporadic. I never really covered why or what happened, but that all changes today.
In November of 2010, I officially entered the world of freelancing. I started picking up clients and my freelance career really took off early in 2011. By the end of the year, Eric was able to “retire” and close his commercial cleaning business while I became the sole breadwinner. I was earning a solid and consistent six-figure yearly income and the whole family had fallen in love with the freedoms that came with my being a work-at-home mom. (And that’s when this blog unfortunately had to take a back seat to client work.)
I’ve spent the years since then working as a freelance marketer and have had the privilege of being part of some exciting product/brand launches, working with some amazing clients, helping to build businesses from idea through conception and execution, and so much more. Through it all, I’ve still been a wife and mom and the family has been top priority. You could say I’ve learned a thing or two about being a work-at-home mom.
The life of a WAHM is amazing…but not easy. It’s filled with freedoms…and new responsibilities. It can equal incredible financial gains…and financial stress. Personal well-being can slip behind kids, husband and clients. I wouldn’t change being a work-at-home mom for anything in the world, but I sure wish I’d had more direction, accountability, encouragement and support from other work-at-home moms over the years. I didn’t have time to seek it out but I would have loved having the option to join a thriving community.
That is why I’m so excited to announce the launch of…
The WAHM Collective
This new membership community for work-at-home moms is my baby, but it’s not all mine. I’ve partnered with 19 other WAHMs who are experts within their fields so that we can collectively create an unparalleled resource for fellow WAHMs regardless of what stage they’re at in their entrepreneurial journeys.
My vision for The Work at Home Moms’ Collective is to create a membership community that serves ALL aspects of a Work at Home Mom’s life in one place.
