How to Return to the Workforce After an Extended Absence

I frequently interview candidates for open positions in my organization and am often asked what advice I have for women returning to the workforce. The most important piece of advice I can give you is to not apologize for leaving your career to raise your children. Be confident in presenting your skills and be assertive about what you have to offer a prospective employer. Finding a…

5 Practices That Help Me Save Money as a Homemaker

There are advantages to working from home, one of which is that I don't have to commute to work every day or sit through rush hour traffic just to get to my office. Since my husband and I both work from home, we're able to save on certain expenses. However, you can never save too much, right? So here's how I save, in my own little way, as a mom, a wife and a homemaker.



1. Less trips to the grocery: My contribution to the family income goes towards all our food. We used to do… Continue

Day 2 of my first craft show

So Mom and I show up again on Sunday morning. I'm anxious and wondering if I will sell more today....and I'm guessing all the other vendors are wondering the same thing. Since I managed to make enough on Saturday to pay for my booth I'm not as obsessed today with calculations, mostly just optimistic and excited. Continue Reading

Where are all the people?

So it is day 1 of my very first craft show and my booth is all set up....only 15 minutes past start time. A few people start walking by and looking at my items. It takes awhile before my mom and I realize these are all fellow vendors. Hmmm....will people who came here to MAKE money SPEND money too? Well, if they're anything like us, it's a definite YES. My mom is already scoping it out, Continue…

Confessions of a former blog hater

Before I go any further I need to admit something - I used to make fun of people who blog. I apologize if this explanation offends any of my fellow bloggers ;).

     I just didn't get the point of blogging. My thought was, why do people think anyone cares about what they have to say? Talk about being full of it! I mean, it's one thing if you're sharing new data, known facts, you know, useful information.....it's another if you're just spouting out randomness.

     I was really…

Staying Fab as a Stay-at-Home/Work-at-Home Mom

I make no claims about being a fabulous mommy. I am new to the job, and I am loving it, but it is damn hard to fill the mommy shoes!  Working from home, although much more flexible than an office job, has proven to be quite the challenge. Sure, I am getting the hang of it, and loving the fact that I can spend most of my day with my husband and son. The challenge I refer to is in terms of maintaining some "flair" in the day-to-day; after all, we work-at-home moms are superwomen, right? So we…

I Fired My Boss...

When I walked out those doors I said I wasn't going back and I meant it. I didn't know how it was going to happen and apart of me feared facing the reality of what would happen if it didn't but THANK YOU GOD for hearing my prayers... and I mean I PRAYED! I still can't believe it's real!



I just couldn't do it anymore. If I said that part of me wasn't… Continue

Send In The Clones

I can't help thinking, why is this a BAD idea?

Join Mama w/MAMABlogger365 initiative ~ Gwyneth Paltrow, Stress & Strategies, raising awareness for M.O.M.

It’s so easy to turn inward when we think about motherhood and what it means and how we do it every day. But even celebrities are not immune to trying to do it all – of course, their circumstances and list of daily to-do’s are different, but in essence, maybe not so much, as evidenced by…

The Fake Career Woman

A beautiful blogger and great friend of mine wrote a post today about being a fake stay at home mom (during break as a teacher.)  She got a lot of well-deserved hits, and I laughed at myself, saying, "I'm going to post where you post, claiming that SAHM is a career."



But, then, I thought, what the heck, self?  SAHM is a career.



She writes: As a teacher "for several weeks out of the…

New Beginning!

I am so excited! My job was eliminated on November 17th! To some this

may come as devastating news. For me, it was music to my ears. Besides

giving me the opportunity to leave a job I didn't like and was

miserable in for the last 4 years, now my dream of becoming a

work-at-home mom is a reality. I simply love my new schedule. I get to

take the kids to school. Then I come home and start working at about

9:00... feet up, tv on, jammies on, laptop on lap. I take… Continue

Becoming a stay at home mom part four....

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.





We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.

Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so…

How to create balance when you work at home

How I became a stay at home mom.....

When I was younger, I never thought that I would be a stay-at-home mom. I had thought that I would finish school, work for a while, get married and then have kids. I guess I never really gave much thought to

what would happen after I had my children, but I also don’t think that it

would’ve mattered because from what I have learned, nothing is like it seems on

T.V.





Leading up to having my daughter,…

The Blurred Lines of Work

I'm not sure if the lines have blurred because my work has taken over my life or because I haven't slept!

My work requires me to travel a lot. I live on the east coast, but have clients on the west coast, so I work late a lot. I have a very unusual job in that I work with celebrities and people in the film and publishing field.

I love to travel. I love creating videos. I love reading and writing. So, my work and my hobbies are nearly one and the…
