I am excited to be featured over on the Sometime’s Sweet blog today, for Dani’s blog series “Literary & Stylish”. (You may have already seen it as I’m a little late in blogging it!)  I’m sharing the many reasons why I was so inspired and encouraged by the book,  MOM, INC.  I read it several months ago, during a time when I was feeling very overwhelmed and defeated.  I came from a place of working too much, to hardly finding the time to work at all after Rylee was born.  While I always knew I wanted to be home raising my daughter, I also knew I wanted to continue to pursue my creative dreams as a freelance artist and designer.  I knew it would be hard to find that balance, but I never knew quite how hard until it was actually upon me.  And let me tell ya, it was a learning curve! (and still is in many ways).  Hence the hard decision I made that I shared with you in my previous post.

This book helped lay it all out.  A simple and practical guide, encouraging me that it is in fact possible to be a mom and a business owner at the same time. Read more > HERE

If you are a mom or a business owner…or simply hope to be both one day, this book is for you!  And if you’ve read it already, let me know your thoughts!

    I actually almost bought this book the other day and now I regret putting it back! I’m not a mother yet, but my boyfriend and I have a 5-year plan which involves getting married, starting a business, growing our (very new) blog and having a baby – not all in that particular order. My goal is by the time I have a child, our business is at a level where I can only work on that and not have any secondary income that forces me to go to a different job.

    Thanks for sharing this! I’ll definitely have to pick it up!

    I’m a mom of two boys, 1 & 2 yrs old. I am also a freelance graphic designer. I definitely know how hard it is to balance both children and work. Thanks for the book reference. I will definitely be checking it out :)
