I’m a mom. I’m a researcher. Of course I know there are many different ways to give birth because I Googled everything before having my daughter… but until recently, this is not one I knew or even thought about. As I complete a part of my journey of personal and business development, I launched my very first newsletter this month. As I began to announce it across social media, one of my two brilliant coaches, Julie Steelman, suggested that I write up a blurb using birth announcement wording. Well, I’m a visual person with experience, albeit self-taught, in digital scrapbook design. So, of course, I actually created a birth announcement. Want to see it?
There you have it, The momME Project and More Newsletter has been born. Unless you’ve been through a creative process in bringing a mission, movement, product, book, website, etc. to fruition, this might not make any sense to you and you might think I’m a little sleep-deprived. You’re right… I just gave birth, of course I’m exhausted. The ideas behind The momME Project have been growing and flourishing. They’ve robbed me of sleep. They’ve made me sit in discomfort as I pushed to move beyond my comfort zones. I’m not sure I’d call it more difficult than my difficult pregnancy and extremely long labor, complications, c-section recovery, and baby that didn’t sleep through the night for two years… But it wasn’t something that was just thrown together either.
So what exactly is The momME Project? Is it just another “website for moms”? I definitely want to help moms get their “ME” back after baby (even if “baby” is now all grown up), but I hope to have something to offer to anyone who finds their way here whether that’s connecting them to products to unmask their radiance, teaching how to make more money on their own terms, offering some type of inspiring thought, offering up a little “ME” time (because we ALL need it), or just making them smile. I hope to offer help for busy moms (and women in general), resources for parenting, and I hope to provide “parenting support,” not “parenting advice.” As you will come to learn, I have an extensive background in working with parents and children, working with behaviors, etc. from my life before becoming a mommy and a momME. I will share techniques that I use with my daughter, my husband, and with myself. Maybe they’ll help, maybe they won’t match your style, and maybe you’ll have something you can share.
Thank you for sharing this special event with me. If you want to be a part of The momME Project, please enter your information at the top right where it says “Stay in Touch” to get my newsletters sent directly to you. Know a mom who might need a little extra support? Please connect them with me.
