So you’re curious what life as a mompreneur (aka work-from-home mom) is like? Today’s your lucky day: You get a front-row seat to experience first-hand what it’s like to be a work from home mom with little kids. 😉

Note: To be taken with a grain of salt.


“{…} Ok. I should really get to work while the kids have a nap… Hang on, let me start the dishwasher real quick!

Gosh. I should do the laundry too. Why the heck is there ALWAYS a mountain of dirty laundry, no matter how many loads I wash?? *it’s a mystery* Based on the amount of dirty laundry, I’m compelled to assume my kids’ imaginary siblings aren’t imaginary after all…

mompreneur life: the laundry fairy

Gimme a sec, I’ll be right back.

Now, where were we? Right. That blog post I wanted to write!

Hello Google, my old friend, let’s start with a bit of keyword research…

Kid crying

Nooo! I was just getting started! Ok then, see you after saving my kiddo’s world. *Superwoman has nothing on us moms*

Finally… Mission accomplished: Kids asleep.

I have about an hour to write that perfect post with all the right keywords in all the right places before I need to wake the kids and take them to their playdate. HOW on earth should I ever get anything done?? Calm down… FOCUS, damn it!

Super productive writing

Awesome progress! I can totally do this!

No way – I got another TWO email subscribers on my list! I’m winning at this!!

Whaaat – one unsubscribed right after downloading my freebie! But why??? What did I do? Was it not good enough?? SOO FRUSTRATING!!

Kid woke up and wants something

AHHHH! Just snapped at my kid out of sheer frustration. #momguilt

Hopefully, they won’t remember this when they get older… Off to that playdate.

Email: You just sold an item

Woohoo – this is soooo cool! This will help to pay for our next family vacation! I just earned money while I was on a playdate!! Can you believe it?? I can literally work when and wherever I want and earn money to pay for the extras we otherwise couldn’t afford!

I’m so gonna tell everyone who didn’t believe this would work! Earning money online is A THING! {…}”

Why it’s worth it

Sounds familiar? 🙂

Working from home is great. But it’s not easy. You will have days when you don’t get anything done.

‘Mom’ comes first in mompreneur, right? So if your precious little one(s) need you, you do what you need to do and the rest of the world will have to wait…

And then you might have to spend a weekend playing catch-up with all your blogging/business tasks.

But this flexibility is also why you considered starting your own blog/online business in the first place, isn’t it?

There’s so much more to blogging than meets the eye! Everything you’ve heard about it is just the tip of the iceberg.

And I don’t mean that in a threatening way!

Yes, becoming a mompreneur will catapult you out of your comfort zone, it will challenge you and test you and confront you with your inner demons (sounds drastic but it’s true!!) – but it will also open up the world for you.

Don’t think for a sec that the super successful mom bloggers out there had it all figured out in the beginning.

You’ll need to get inventive about making time to do ALL THE THINGS. You might have to let go of your perfectionism: Done is better than perfect.

It’s a journey and you’ll get to know things about yourself you didn’t know.

You’ll find new ways to express the things that matter to you and connect with other people. You might even find your new BFF…
