I believe you can have it all.

You had a baby. Or a couple of babies. And you thought you’d go back to work, but then… you didn’t. Or you did, but you hate it. Or you didn’t, and you feel like you’re missing a part of yourself. Or you don’t hate your job, but you hate the hours. Or the people.

People tell you, “You have to choose. You can’t be a great mom and have a great career.” Those people? Those people suck. Those people are wrong. You can have it all. You can stay home with your kids and have an amazing career. You can do work you enjoy and be present for your children.

You can write your own success story as a freelance writer. I can show you exactly what you need to do to start your career even if you have no experience. On the blog, you’ll find plenty of step-by-step instructions for everything from finding the time to write to creating a writing resume that will help you land real freelance writing jobs — the kind that pay real money.

Successful Freelance Mom is written for you, the mom — and for you, the successful freelance writer building an amazing new career. I am passionate about helping you figure out how to have it all — because you can.
