I am so blessed and grateful for my life every single day. I’m able to drive my son to school every morning and I’m here when he gets off the bus every afternoon. I haven’t missed a game, recital, or parent volunteer opportunity in a year. I’m making money every day doing what I love, running this blog. It wasn’t that long ago that I was working an hour away from home, crying on my way home from work because I had missed yet another important moment in my son’s life because I had a meeting that ran late. I was stressed. I had gained weight. I felt like a failure as a mom. I felt like a failure at my job. On top of all of that I was living paycheck-to-paycheck and usually had to choose which bills I paid each month. I’d pay my phone bill every other month with my credit card and then on the month I didn’t pay my phone bill, I’d pay my credit card bill. I was paying so many late fees and overdraft fees. It was crazy.
I got myself out of that mess and now am living a life I love. It wasn’t easy to get here. I’m not promising you that it’s going to be easy but I am promising you that you can create the life you’ve imagined. It’s within reach it’s here for you to take it. I did it and I want to help you do it too.
I started this blog to help other moms. I used to be so stressed because it seemed like every other mother was so perfect except for me. I created Less Than Perfect Parents to let you know we’re all not perfect and to release you from trying to fit that impossible mold. Now, I feel like I want to serve you even more. I want to help you be home with your kids like I am. I want you to feel blessed like I do. I want you to wake up feeling so happy and grateful because everyone deserves that. I am living the life I always dreamed of because I served you once and I believe a business owner who focuses on giving to his followers and his customers will always have money. It just comes to you when you take care of your people.
