You’re here because you:
Welcome, mama – you’re in the right spot.
Moms Growing Businesses is a resource that empowers moms to start and grow businesses so they can live life on their own terms.
Basically, so they can be awesome moms AND have something for themselves.
Disclaimer: There are a lot of online business resources that only tell you half the story (the half they leave out is the important part) and we’re tired of it.
Nothing is sugar-coated here – if you love honesty – welcome.
We’re trying our best to grow this resource into everything you need to be a mom growing an online business.
Sound like a fit for you? Let’s be friends. 🙂
Either you want to start or you’re busy growing your online business so you can live life on your terms which means you’re going to love this blog.
Moms Growing Businesses is all about helping you start, grow, and meet your online business goals.
You’re working toward having flexibility so you can be around for your kids and never miss any of their Christmas concerts.
But you also want something creative for yourself, am I right?
Being a mom is wonderful but you’re more than that.
I started this site to helps moms join the work at home movement that’s happening now.
Just a note in case you’re doubting yourself – you CAN make that business happen and this blog can help guide you so you meet your goals.
You’re just going to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
So, who am I?
I’m Elaine and I’m going to share a story with you…
Once upon a time, I was a woman who worked way too many hours for someone else and wasn’t happy with the situation (I’m sure you can relate).
I knew there was more to life but, like a lot of people, I floated along, playing it safe and not really doing…anything.
I had big dreams and goals (become an entrepreneur so I can live life my way…) but I really didn’t know HOW to get it all done.
So my dreams remained just that…dreams.
I think that’s the big problem a lot of mom entrepreneurs have – they know what they want, they just don’t know the how to do it part – and that, my friends, will keep you stuck.
I’ve spent a lot of time reading, researching, and learning over the years but for the longest time I didn’t start anything because I wasn’t sure what path to take in my business.
So, back to coasting along in life waiting for that perfect moment or for something to change (yes, I’ve since realized I was the only one who could make a change in life).
Don’t worry, I’m getting to the point of all this…
The morning I found out I was pregnant with my first daughter I was a little shocked.
Okay, fine, I was downright overwhelmed.
(Yes, I was happy too – I’ve always wanted to be a mom).
You see, now it was time to get my act together, no more playing it safe.
The right time was NOW.
I never wanted to leave my kids for hours every day only to see them for dinner and then put them to bed.
I wanted to BE there for them.
I wanted the flexibility to control how I use my time.
I wanted to have earn money from home so I could be creative because, while I wanted to be a mom, I knew it couldn’t be the only thing I did with my time.
Yes, I had all of this planned in my head BEFORE starting a family, I just didn’t know HOW to get these things done.
So, as I sat on the toilet with a pregnancy test in hand, I knew it was time to roll up my sleeves and figure out how to start and grow a successful online business.
I have my daughter to thank for kicking me into gear.
Literally the day after finding out we were expecting, I took the plunge and started my business.
Yup, I jumped in headfirst and haven’t looked back.
And, the hard work has paid off…
In the last 3 years, I’ve grown a successful blog AND a service-based business that helps female entrepreneurs grow their businesses.
I successfully left my unfulfilling 9-5 job knowing I will never work for someone else.
So, those are my results but achieving success was anything but easy.
Growing a business while working full time or taking care of your kids is overwhelming.
But that’s what I’m here for – to help you achieve your business goals and show you the how-to of growing an online business.
Let’s get a few things out of the way…
Yes – it’s possible to live a balanced mom life doing what you love to do instead of what you have to do.
Yes – you can grow a business no matter how busy you are or how little money you have to invest.
It’s going to take some discipline and work, so let’s roll up our sleeves and get started, shall we?
Because that’s my true passion.
Helping other moms realize their entrepreneurial dreams is what I do.
If you’ve wanted to work at home or start your own business but you haven’t been sure of HOW to do it, welcome.
