Entrepreneurship is in my DNA. My parents are entrepreneurs so I saw it first hand growing up. As a wife and mom of two, I didn't want a job that kept me away from my family or too exhausted to spend time with them when I got home.
Growing up as a child of entrepreneurs, it was the farthest thing from my mind to become one. I honestly wanted nothing to do with it. I went to college and worked as a project manager in two different design firms. Project management suited my OCD organizational tendencies but my Dad always told me that I wouldn't be happy in my world while I still worked for someone else. After years of stress, 80 hour work weeks, and a boss that was difficult to work for, I was laid off while six months pregnant with my oldest child. I was done living by someone else's rules and timeline. Over the past 10 years, I've built two businesses from the ground up that provided me with the freedom and flexibility to be a mom first and a business owner second.
My first adventure started as a way to flip yard sales finds on eBay which transitioned into a thriving product-based business on Amazon. It's been an amazing 9-year journey that I never could have dreamed up.
In the middle of my Amazon journey, I realized that if I could do this, so could a lot of other people. During that time I met my best friend, Kristin Ostrander, and we built Mommy Income where we dedicated our energy to helping others start and scale businesses on Amazon using our signature Wholesale Bundle System™.
As an entrepreneur, my brain doesn't shut down - ask my poor husband. I'm taking everything I've learned about my strengths, and purpose over the past ten years and charting a new course. I'm now on a mission to help solopreneurs release their big ideas into the world by developing laser-focused offer roadmaps.
It took me a while to embrace entrepreneurship
If you have an idea that could change the course of your business but you find yourself asking, "Now what?"
