Becoming a mom for the first time can stir up a lot of mixed feelings: JOY, fear, EXCITEMENT, anxiety, ANTICIPATION...just to name a few. 🙂
I was over the moon excited for the arrival of my new baby girl, but scared to death of how I would juggle a traveling sales job and caring for a newborn.
My joy was often overshadowed by the thought of going back to a full-time job that had me traveling across the countryside for weeks at a time and missing my little one grow up while I was away.
I desperately wanted to find a way that I could earn money AND stay home with my baby girl.
You know when they say, "Where there's a will, there's a way"?
Well, I pretty much willed myself into coming up with a way that I could do both. As I searched online for things like "trendy baby bedding" and "modern diaper bags", there really weren't a lot of amazing places to buy these items. (Sorry Babies 'R Us.)
It was during one of my failed Google searches that I realized I COULD OPEN AN ONLINE BABY BOUTIQUE and offer new moms all of the really cool baby items that I was searching for. It was like an AHA moment for me where the clouds parted and the sun shone through. I pictured what it would look like in my mind and I believed I could do it.
In 2005, I took the plunge and hired a web designer to create a website for my business idea, BabysInStyle.com, named after my second baby who we lovingly called "Baby".

Since the launch of first ecommerce website, my family has grown and I took some time off. In 2017 I decided to start a blog (again) and it was the best decision ever.
Over the past 12 years, I have learned so much about starting and growing online business that I now share my passion and help fellow female entrepreneurs launch, learn and grow their WordPress blogs.
