I remember feeling like I was about to jump off a cliff when I decided to stop working and become a stay-at-home Mother. That was 3 kids ago in 2010 when we welcomed our first child. I had always wanted to stay home and partake of the little moments. That was important to me and it was decided before we even had kids. What I didn't know was how lost I'd feel in that role. No longer a team to consult and bounce ideas off of, nor a manager to report to or a paycheck at the end of the month (bye bye cute nails). The menial work of dirty diapers, mounds of laundry, picking up toys and endless snacks was an essentials part of motherhood but not one that fulfilled the creative and driven part of the ME inside of the Mom.
All of that would change in 2012 when my husband got laid off from his "secure job" and the idea of owning our own business and working with likeminded individuals became our reality. The "hustle" wasn't out there anymore, it was within us, to overcome our weaknesses and develop our talents. Jim Rohn once taught me: "Everyone needs to belong to something greater than themselves." Everyday the opportunity is to create a life not just make a living.
