Hey mamas, welcome to my blog!
I started this blog back in 2013 to help mom find a work-from-home job, side hustle gig or start their own homebased business.
Believe me, I know the challenges of trying to climb the ladder of success in corporate America when you have a family to take care of.
I worked in corporate America for over 15 years. And because of that, I missed so much of my kids growning up. I missed school programs, meet and greets with their teachers and I wasn’t there when they got home after school.
By the time I got home, they were already in bed.
This went on for years and the higher I climbed up the ladder the more I was away from home.
One day I while I was taking a day off from work, I was browsing through the internet looking for another job. I was looking for something that would allow me to be at home more.
I came across a website promoting work-from-home jobs and I was hooked!
So I started doing my own research and found there were a lot of ways to make money from home.
After years of working long hours, I quit my job to work from home. That turned out to be a good thing and a bad thing.
Good because I was finally free to do what I wanted to do and bad because I had no back-up plan whatsoever and that lead to money problems, big time.
I landed my first work-from-home job as a customer service rep for Transcom – back then they were known as Cloud10.
After the job ended, I decided to start a blog about making money from home and the rest as they say, is history – or herstory!
You can find out more about me and how I started blogging on my About Me page.
Why the name Not Now Mom’s Busy
If you’re a mama, I’m sure you can relate to the name of the blog.
When I first started blogging my kids weren’t so little but they were always coming into my office needing something.
Mom, can you take me to my friend’s house?
Mom, can you drop me off at the mall?
Or, mom, can you take me to the store?
How about – mom, can you wash my favorite shirt?
And my favorite, Mom, where is the food? There is nothing to eat (when the fridge and pantry is stocked).
It was easy to come up with my blog’s name because ‘not now’ and ‘mom’s busy’ were my instant responses.
I tell yah, there were plenty of times when I wanted to throw in the towel because trying to balance a family and grow a successful blogging business is no walk in the park.
I was lucky to meet some fabulous ladies who not only helped me grow as a blogger but have been a great support system for me.
And that’s what I want to be for you.
This blog is packed with tips and resources to help you decide what type of money making opportunity is best for you.
You will find blog posts about:
- work-from-home jobs
- side hustle gigs
- starting a homebased business along with tips and resources to help grow your business
- my own stories of success and struggles from when I started my work-from-home journey
You’ll also find blog posts about being a mom and topics like life hacks, weight loss, parenting and more.
What you won’t find here are get-rich-quick schemes and online scams. I was scammed when I first started so one, I know how it feels to be scammed and two, that’s not how I roll.
My mantra is to support and uplift one another.
And if you need to vent about anything, all you have to do is email me or message me on Facebook and I’m here to lend an ear – or eyes to read your messages, hehe.
