Here’s how it all got started.
Since the day my daughter was born, I’ve been a stay at home mom. But after 9 months of play-dates, mommy and me classes, and a dwindling bank account, I felt the urge to make some money and exercise my brain. I looked online for different work at home opportunities, but the majority of my time was spent weeding through scams and sifting through various websites to find all of the information that I was looking for.
I had always enjoyed writing and dreamed of writing a comedic novel; however I never considered blogging as a career option. I continued looking online for work at home jobs when I finally had my light bulb moment – “I’m going to create the perfect work at home resource for women!”
To fund this endeavor, I started working part-time at home as a social media manager for American Writers & Artists Inc. During this time I researched ideas, created content, and hired a graphic designer to create a custom design for me. In March of 2009, I officially launched The Work at Home Woman.
I’ve been blogging for 6 years and I absolutely love it! I’ve worked with major brands like HP, Tastefully Simple, cabi, NeatDesk, Staples, and MSN. I’ve also been quoted in big name publications like the NY Times, CNN, Forbes, The Huffington Post, Woman’s Day Magazine, Working Mother, and HLN TV.
Blogging has given me freedom, flexibility, financial stability and has launched the career of my dreams. Besides the perks of being able to stay at home with my daughter, blogging has introduced me to opportunities and people that I would have never met else wise.
Additional tidbits …
I graduated from the University of Texas with a Bachelor’s Degree in Cultural Anthropology and a minor in Sociology. A few years later I obtained my Associate Degree in Nursing, as well as securing my license as a Registered Nurse. Currently I reside in Austin, Texas, with my amazing husband Jeff, my wonderful daughter Hadley, and our fur babies, Bella and Love. My passions include reading, traveling, fashion, and coffee.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to visit my site. I hope that it’s helpful to you and I can continue to help you on your work at home journey.
