No Niche Mama
I was not that person who knew exactly what she wanted to do from the beginning of time. I didn’t dream of becoming a lawyer. I never dreamed about what kind of mom I would be, or even if I would be a mom. I was more of the person who progressed step by step through the required years of schooling and growing up and then questioned what I was actually going to do to make a living when I graduated college. A friend (in jest) said I should take the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) with her. I thought, why not? I’d historically been good at school. I enjoyed school, mainly because it was pretty much all I knew. It was comfortable. So, why not just keep being a student. LOL
The irony is that that friend never ended up in law school, but I did! And I learned so much about myself during my law school years. I matured. I learned how to live on my own. I learned how to think critically, solve problems and argue my positions respectfully but with authority. I learned that I actually might make a good attorney. And so I followed that path for 15 years.
I practiced law full-time as a wife and as a mom. At the time, I felt I was a better mom because I worked outside the home. Jury’s still out on that. After about 10 years of practicing law, I started feeling pulled in too many directions. I felt I wasn’t being who I needed to be for my family, who I needed to be for my career or who I needed to be for me. I also felt stuck. I invested a lot of money (6 figure student loans) and time into my law career. I was making good money that my family came to rely on. I was scared of making a change and of the unknown. Can you relate?
Ultimately, my desire for something different, something more compelled me to at least consider stepping away from the practice of law. So in 2015, I took a leap of faith and discovered my entrepreneurial spirit. Now, I no longer practice law. Instead, I empowered myself to take back control of my life, gain more time and financial freedom, and build a lasting legacy. I enjoy building up others and motivating them to pursue the same.
Today, I am creating my OWN destiny, rather than becoming a product of someone else’s. I do this through my blog / social media accounts which are not focused on any one particular niche ~ no niche mama ~ and 2 online businesses (skincare and CBD) plus affiliate marketing. My content is a reflection of my daily life, all over the place. You will find inspiration for mom life, dog life, Faith life, life as a mom business owner, work at home mom life, law life, and more.
I’m loving this chapter of my life! I hope you see that through my content. More importantly, I hope my content inspires and empowers YOU to create a life you love!
