So I'm curious if you are a stay at home mom do you have to work or do you have a side hustle or do you wish you could or are you working mom and is that how you planned it I am kind of like a hybrid mom I work but I work from home but I work mostly full-time but it kind of fluctuates and I guess that's exactly how I would want it if I look at it when my son was little that was like the perfect mix but tell me about you
I am a stay at home mom. Going into being a stay at home mom, I was like, no, I'm not doing that. And then when she did come, I was on bed rest early. And when she did come, I just enjoyed it. So I stayed a stay at home mom now for five years.
I struggle with like mentally not bringing in money to help with the household, not that we technically need it, but it struggles because I was taught to work, like growing up my parents stressed that I always needed to have a job or a career, so that's why I struggle with that.
I definitely try to have a side hustle or something going on though. I'm thinking about getting into 31 right now. I'm a content creator and I also do like customizable stuff with like my Cricut. So sometimes I'll get like that stuff together but yeah.
yeah it is not easy being a mom and going through all these obstacles like i wish i was able to just be a full day at home mom and live off one income but obviously that is impossible in the world we live in today because everything is so expensive
So I work for a company that's called anywhere works and I'm basically just a remote receptionist and I create bath and body products for liquid body butters to the scrubs to bath bombs and what not what are you do
So tell me about content creation because I'm just getting into this a little bit myself. I've always created content as a social media manager but like the UGC opportunities. So how are you finding jobs for that?
I guess I also consider myself a hybrid. I usually say that I'm a part-time stay-at-home mom, part-time working mom, because I only work about 15 hours a week. I work for three hours in the evenings five days a week.
And honestly, this is kind of exactly what my husband and I talked about before I got pregnant. I was a 100% stay-at-home mom for the first six months, exclusively breastfeeding. And then I started looking for a job once he started.
And I do have some side hustles and I'm trying to establish some work from home stuff Because I do really like having my own income, but it's really hard to be away from my son Even if it's only for a few hours a day.
If you don't mind me asking, what are you doing for work in those three hours each day? And what did you do before becoming a mom? Because maybe there's some skills you can transfer over to online gigs.
I have always wanted to be a mom. I had a miscarriage as my first pregnancy and so I thought maybe I was never going to be able to be a mom and this is just what I've always wanted, what I've always pictured and I'm a stay home mom and I am happy.
I'm sorry to hear about your miscarriage but this response makes me so happy I think a lot of times they all mom's content to paint a bad picture of being a mom and always being mom and having not be there I didn't even that is my favorite
I felt the same way when I became a stay home mom and I do have a side hustle like I do a YouTube and contact creation and that is definitely help me have some thing for myself while being a stay at home mom and I really do enjoy it
To be a career mom, but having children and having children back to back in the pandemic, I was fortunate enough to have two maternity leaves that were a year long. I realized that I never want to go back to corporate and I would rather work for myself.
I am currently 30 weeks pregnant and a stay-at-home mom. I prefer to work, however, finding a job with mother's hours and daycare is extremely difficult in this day and age and really depressing. We need to do better.
But I also feel like if I did work from home or ahead of it aside has all that I wouldn't have as much time to like clean my house and cook and do all the housewife things I really do enjoy doing it most importantly spend time with my children so
