In the spirit of inspiring more moms, I'm highlighting a different mompreneur and her story every Monday for the next few months.
These women are hardworking, amazing mommas who are balancing family life and creative business life. They are at varying levels of their blogging business. Some are just getting started. Some have been blogging for years.
Each mom offers a different perspective on what works (and doesn't work) for her when it comes to being a mompreneur.
Take a few minutes to read the mompreneur stories each week and find the inspiration you need to move forward with your own mompreneur journey! Be sure to check out the resources they recommend, take a closer look at their blogs, and signup for their mailing lists to keep in touch!
Interview with Cassie, Blogger at Moms Choose Joy
What's the name of your blog? What do you blog about?
My blog is called Moms Choose Joy. I inspire and empower purpose-driven women to organize their families, plan their lives, and care for themselves.
How long have you been blogging and what made you decide to start a blog?
I started my blog in November 2015 as a way for me to help other busy and overwhelmed moms take control of their overwhelm and start living their lives with intention.
How many children do you have? Ages? What do they think about you being a blogger?
I have two delightful and rambunctious boys. They are 7 and 4. My younger one is constantly dressed up as his favorite character of the moment. This year he’s been Peter Pan, Batman, Robin Hood, and the Red Power Ranger. My oldest is obsessed with reading and memorizing train routes.
What's your favorite thing about blogging?
I love almost everything about it! But my very favorite thing is connecting with my readers and hearing how my words have inspired them to take positive actions in their lives.
What's your least favorite thing about blogging?
Scheduling social media is by far my least favorite thing about blogging.
What's your favorite blogging tool that you simply cannot go without and why?
Canva! Canva makes it so easy to create graphics for my blog, social media posts, and products. It’s an AMAZING free resource!
What's the best advice you would give to a mom looking to start her own mompreneur business?
Do a brain dump. List out every idea that comes to mind about what your ideal business would look like. And then create a plan to make it happen!
Just for fun: If you were a beverage, which beverage would you be?
