Whoa! Is this happening?
The Mompreneur Hustle Blog is LIVE!
After a year of thinking about and developing this idea, this Mompreneur has a blog!
I am so excited to finally have this idea that’s been stuck in my brain for a year, become something that is real! I hope this blog is something that fellow Mompreneurs, and Entrepreneurs alike, can relate to. My goal is to be real, share my real life struggles and how I manage to make it through day to day but still come out happy and some what succesful. I would also like for you to see that you’re not alone in this chaos you more than likely put yourself in to, as I did. Because we’re crazy cool like that.
But I’m not going to lie, the new-blog struggle is real ya’ll! Like where do I start? How do I start? Having topics in mind for future posts is great, but what do I begin with? I have been working on this site and topics for weeks and this first one has been the hardest. What am I “supposed” to do as a new blogger? I suppose there is no “right” or “wrong” way of blogging, so I will just be myself, dive in and figure it the hell out as I go!
So, I guess starting this blog is no different than anything else I have done in my life…
I’ve had 3 little humans who are happy, healthy and borderline spoiled. I’ve gone back to school where I completed my Associates degree in 2 years while being a SAHM (Stay at Home Mom) to two of the three little humans. I got married to my best friend and teammate in life and I think we’re putting up with each other pretty damn good. And I started 2 businesses in under 2 years, that are slowly becoming succesfull. You can read more about my journey to becoming a Mompreneur in the About Me page. But did I have a clue of what I was doing? Hell no! But some how, I have managed to navigate my way through it all.
So I may not know what I am doing to start. It may take me some time to sort it out, find what works and what doesn’t. But I hustle like hell to figure it out and get it right. I am always striving to be successful in all things I set out to do. So this is no different. I intend to make this blog my bitch and figure it out. And the only way to do that is to just dive my ass right in!
How Did I Get Here?
Maybe my journey to Mompreneur Life sounds familiar. Maybe becoming a Mompreneur was something that happened out of necessity. The necessity to finding a way to make some extra money. Or maybe you just wanted to DO something. Something other than being a snack bitch or a personal ass wiper, jungle gym and referee to the cutest, yet most demanding little humans. Or maybe you knew building a business while raising children was something you always wanted to do. Perhaps your business existed before those demanding little humans came in to your life.
Either way, did you ever imagine how difficult it all would be? Did you realize how much you truly did not know about being a Mompreneur? Like just how much work would have to be put in, constantly, in both Mom Life and Entrepreneur Life? Yea, me either.
No One Tells You How Hard This Is
Being a Mompreneur, or just an Entrepreneur even, is hard ass work. No one really tells you that, or maybe they do, I just didn’t listen, I can be stubborn like that. But man does it smack you in the face so hard. To even be remotely successful you have to hustle and hustle hard. And just when you don’t think you have any hustle left, you have to dig deep and hustle some more! But just when you think you’re on a roll or that you have it all figured out, BAM, you get smacked in the face again where you feel like you’ve been put back at square one.
There always seems to be something that needed to be done yesterday. Time and sleep we never have enough of. And those deamnding little humans of ours couldn’t care less that we have messages to answer, designs to create and orders to make, package and ship off. Does anyone really tell you just how much time and energy has to be put in to all of these things? Did I miss that Memo? Maybe I did…again…
When Motherhood and Entrepreneurhood Collide
How do you manage, how do you juggle it all? How do you get it ALL done and in a timely manner? Yea, that’s a good question. I’m still working on it…
There are some days that I think, “holy shit, how am I going to get all of this done?” Ok, that is MOST days. In the beginning, it seems easy enough, running a business and a household, but eventually, Motherhood and Entrepreneur-hood collide! The line is blurred. There is no just being a Domestic Babe and then just an Entrepreneur. You’re now both, all responsibilities cooked together, like a giant mystery casserole!
There are orders to process, piles of laundry to do, social media posts to create and snacks to grab, open and put in a spill proof dish (yea, those don’t exists by the way). Then dishes and spills to clean all while trying to plan out your next product line or blog post in your head. A million toys need putting away (just to be brought back out in 0.2 seconds flat) and vacuuming what seems to be every surface in your home needs done on almost a daily basis. Oh, yea and then there’s orders, orders that need creating, packaging and shipping off within a timely manner. Where does one end and the other begin? They don’t, I am, you are, a Mompreneur – a casserole of Motherhood and Entrepreneur-hood.
What You Have To Look Forward To Here At The Mompreneur Hustle
Like I said above, I plan to be real, share my struggles as a Mompreneur. No bullshit, I don’t play that. But I want to share so that you know you’re not alone, we are all going through the same or similar struggles. And hopefully you can find some relief by coming here in knowing you’re not alone. And perhaps you can gain some positive energy to hustle on, don’t give up and continue to strive for success as a Mompreneur. It can be done, we totally got this! It just takes hustle, margaritas and maybe some tears, yea, there’s definitely going to be tears.
I would love to hear from you…
