Interview with Susan Wenner Jackson – Co-founder of Working Moms Against Guilt

Interview with Susan Wenner JacksonTell us a little bit about your blogging journey.

I started blogging way back in 2006, soon after our first child was born. As an advertising copywriter, I used Working Moms Against Guilt as both an outlet for my own personal writing as well as a way to connect with other women who were new to the whole “working mom” thing. Eight years later, I’m proud that it’s now an international community of women at all stages of working motherhood, inspiring thousands of moms to feel good about their choices and get help when they struggle.

What did you do before becoming an online publisher?

I started my career as a journalist, writing for daily newspapers, magazines and eventually websites as more content was being published online. I shifted over to PR, marketing and advertising around 2002, and worked for a number of years at ad agencies and marketing companies in the Cincinnati area. (more…)

Interview with Caitlin Pyle – Professional Transcript Proofreader

Interview with Caitlin PyleTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey. 

I’m 27, married, and I have been earning full-time income proofreading transcripts for court reporters since 2012. While I am a free spirit who loves adventure, I also like a bit of stability. I’ve known I didn’t want to work for someone else since high school! Through college and a few years beyond, I did work “regular” jobs, but they were all so suffocating … and the last one was downright nightmarish. There are heaps of other things I enjoy doing, too, like working out, cooking, and spending time with family, so being able to do something I enjoy, that I do well, and that earns me full-time income for part-time hours is a dream come true for me. And now I’m teaching others to do the same.

What did you do before launching your business?

I am a certified personal trainer, and I spent some time trying to launch some kind of business in that field. It didn’t work out – I found that I didn’t quite enjoy personal training as much as I thought I would. It’s not a very stable way to earn income. You’re constantly trying to sell your services, whereas with proofreading, if you’re good, your clients know they need you!

Do you have any special training?

Lots of experience! My last job was actually in a court reporting office, and the president of the company taught me to proofread. (more…)

Interview with Gina Whitehouse – Beachbody Health and Fitness Coach

Interview with Gina Whitehouse - Beachbody Health and Fitness CoachTell us how you got involved with Beachbody. 

I had my first child in 2011 and a year later I knew I needed to do something to keep off the weight I had lost while nursing my daughter and tone my body. I needed to exercise. I had gym memberships in the past but I was never motivated to go. Now that I had a child there was no way I was going to bring her with me to the gym. It just took too much time to get myself and her ready, workout, and then come home. I knew working out at home was an option but I was hesitant to purchase a home workout DVD because I didn’t know if it would sit on my shelf or if I would actually do it. It was a month later that I saw a friend of mine had become a Beachbody Health & Fitness Coach and was offering an online accountability group. I joined the group and saw success with my weight loss! The accountability and encouragement was amazing. I knew that I could offer that to someone else! In August 2012 I signed up to be a coach.

My background is actually in residential home design. I studied architecture in college and worked for years as a designer. But, I knew I wanted to stay at home with my children when I decided to start a family. However, I found that the transition to working and staying at home was difficult. (more…)

Interview With Emily Belcher – Founder of The Unextreme

Emily BelcherTell us a little bit about your blogging journey.

My blogging journey began shortly after I became a stay at home mom. I didn’t realize how hard it would be to go back to my nursing job once our son was born. It just didn’t work for our family. After I quit my nursing job to stay at home, I flew into budget-mode immediately.

After trimming some of our luxury expenses, I decided to start couponing. I learned how to coupon from watching TLC’s Extreme Couponing. It really got me hooked and I actually enjoyed the new lifestyle. Then, I saw a job posting to be a writer for thekrazycouponlady.com. I applied and got my first blogging job as one of their store experts.

I gradually scored several other blogging jobs after I began writing for them. Then, I decided that I wanted to start my own blog and give it a shot. (more…)

Interview With Jessica Nazarali – Success Coach

Interview With Jessica Nazarali - Success CoachTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey. 

Prior to leaving my day job in business development, I ran my website, LiveHealthySimply.com, and online health food store, ShopHealthy.com.au, on nights and weekends.

Over time, people started to notice and came to me asking how they too could create their own businesses, while still working in their day jobs. I knew I could teach others to recreate the success I had created.

I quit my job to focus on my coaching business and I haven’t looked back since. Now I work with women all over the world to create their own successful coaching businesses and quit their day jobs and do something really meaningful. (more…)
