I am a Star Wars Jedi Master Mom, ADHD educator/advocate, Wife, Entrepreneur, Author, Swim Coach, Friend, Crafter, Cook, Taekwondo Supporter, Chauffeur, Party Planner…and the list goes on. As any mom can tell you we wear many hats that we love as much as it is exhausting. I think the best we can do is to let the past go, enjoy the present and work hard to make our futures bright.
I wanted to start this blog to share my idea…
They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too, but I say you can if you bake it yourself.
It may be super messy and stressful, but I swear it tastes so much better…success!
I am working to bake (i.e., create) the life I want for me and my family without boundaries or regret (still working on this last one…I am only human)
I want to share my journey as a wife, mother of a complex kid, and business owner with you to offer support and encouragement that it may be messy at times, but it is well worth it.
After working for “the man” for over 15 years and trying to balance that requirements (read long hours, competition, ??) of being in the consulting world in the Washington DC Metro area with family and personal time I just felt I had enough. I was at a point in my life when I want to do it my way! So I quit my job and went out on my own as an independent consultant and I haven’t looked back. While it was the scariest decision of my life it has been the best. I could not have seen the family trials that were coming my way, but it gave me the flexibility I needed to be there for my family.
