For the past year and eight months everyone has been telling me, “Janine, you need to launch your blog.” And every time I heard it I knew they were right. I just couldn’t come up for air long enough to tackle it.
The one thing I’ve had to come to peace with is my pace of growing a business as a stay-at-home-working-mother. It is slow. It is slow because it happens in fits and bursts. These first years are so precious, and our older daughter Aria is already turning five in two months! I try my hardest to slow down and be present mentally and physically with my children when I am in mom mode. And then when I put on my working-mom hat, I work my hardest. My to-do list is ever growing with ideas I can’t wait to implement, but I’ve focused on prioritizing. And this I owe to my dear friend and business confidant, Robyn Cruze. She grounded me with her quote,
First things first. My focus has been to grow each community site and provide each mom owner with the support, encouragement to engage their members. Its taken a lot of sweat and hours, but ground work is now in place to support each of us. Standing on this infrastructure I have found myself taking those first deep breaths. I can take on the next big idea.
Our blog will be our collective voice. A place to connect us all, the mom owners of each site, and all our mom members around the country. Hello world, welcome to Moms for Moms Communities!
