Here’s how it all got started.
Since the day my daughter was born, I’ve been a stay-at-home mom. But after nine 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 website for women!”
To fund this endeavor, I started working part-time at home as a social media manager for a publishing company. During this time I researched ideas, created content, and hired a graphic designer to create a custom blog for me. In March of 2009, I officially launched The Work at Home Woman.
I’ve been blogging for ten 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 secured my license as a Registered Nurse. Currently, I reside in Austin, Texas, with my amazing husband Jeff, our wonderful daughter Hadley, and our furry friend, Love. My passions include reading, blogging, traveling, doing yoga, and coffee in the morning, and champagne in the evening.
Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to helping you on your work-at-home journey!
