Our Favourite Sites For Awesome WAHMs!

There are a ton of really neat sites and communities out there, geared toward those that work the hardest — the kick butt work at home moms! Today I wanted to share a list of just a few which might be helpful to you fine ladies! Take care.

  1. WAHM.com is an informative online magazine for work at home mamas. The site is full of great articles about getting started as a WAHM, business opportunity listings and an active forum for chatting with others. Tons of advice and resources, especially for those new to the WAHM lifestyle.
  2. 5 Minutes For Mom isn’t necessarily WAHM specific, but it filled to the bring with great articles from seasoned pros and beginners alike. Definitely work a visit.
  3. WAHM Canada is, quite obviously, a great site specifically for Canadian WAHMs (like me!)
  4. Bizymoms is all about connecting moms and building community, especially within local circles. Great stuff!

Do you have a favourite WAHMish site? Do you chat with other WAHMs on forums?

Featured Mom: Silly Mama Quilts

August 22, 2011 by  
Filed under blog

Good morning to all you lovely Mom Made That! readers! Today I’m really excited to bring you a little interview with the incredibly talented Brooke of Silly Mama Quilts. It’s not hard to fall in love with her eye-catching designs and attention to detail. Be sure to browse through her Etsy shop (and blog!) to take a look at her colourful pieces. I’d certainly be thrilled to cozy up with one of her beautiful quilts!

01. Tell us a little about yourself!
I am a Mom to three kids at home – 11, 9, 7 and a 24 year old daugther who is married and just graduated with her Masters and working!  I am also apart of Amanda of the Quilted Fish’s design team.  Amanda is a fabric designer for Riley Blake fabrics.  I get to design new projects that are debuted on Amanda’s blog – tons of fun!!

02. What lead you to creating your own business?
I think is covered well in the intro piece I have attached.

03. Describe a typical day in the life of YOU!
During the school year, after my kiddos are off to school, I head out on a morning bike ride to help process my day, come home to chores and errands before heading into the studio to work.  In the afternoons I monitor the kids’ activities and then take care of dinner, homework and such things.

04. What is your best piece of advice for fellow WAHMs?
Find a balance in your life that you can live with.  I have quickly come to the conclusion that if I don’t take care of me, no one else will.  I have learned to take a stand for things I need – a bike ride for sanity, time in the studio to work and or create for example.

05. The best part of being a WAHM? The worst?
The best part is my availablity for my kids and hubby which can also be the worst.  I do love being able to work around their schedules without answering to a boss about how many sick days, vacation time and such.

06. Favourite blog? Music? Book? Movie?
I have several favorite blogs I follow – mostly related to fabric designers, design team members and quilters.  My favorite music is just about anything Contemporary Christian, movie – Return to Me, Sleepless in Seattle.

07. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I hope to be doing what I am doing now plus maybe more designing.

Don’t forget to visit her shop & blog. You can also catch her on Twitter by following @scrapquiltqueen!

Have You Mastered The Key To WAHM Success?

July 27, 2011 by  
Filed under blog

Alright, we all know it’s not that simple — there’s no ONE thing we can do to ensure the success of our respective businesses. However! There’s certainly one key point that, when incorporated into our daily lives, is sure to keep us motivated and on the right path.

That key? Get things done early!

One of my favourite blogs for working mom success –  Simple Mom, which I’ve mentioned here before — recently published a post about this very topic and it’s been on my brain for days.

“Whenever possible, get it — whatever it may be — done early and eliminate the stress and frustration of being pulled in a million directions,” writes Mandi Ehman of Life…Your Way.

I find myself nodding away as I scroll through her article. How many of us have felt this last-minute insane confusion when we’ve let our priorities get out of hand? How about those late night and earlier mornings spend guzzling coffee with the hopes of accomplishing more than we can possibly accomplish in any given amount of time?

Hop on over to Simple Mom for some fabulous tips for getting things done early in your home life, business life and how to get started if you’ve fallen behind. A wonderful resource for all working mamas — you’ll want to bookmark this one for sure!

One Year Of Freelance: A Business Woman’s Journey

June 6, 2011 by  
Filed under blog

Back in April I mentioned one particularly savvy business woman, who was working solely freelance for the first time in her design career. Kathleen, of Jeremy & Kathleen, isn’t a work at home mama, but I’ve found the incredibly detailed journey of her first freelancing year to be inspiring, honest and bold. She loves to share her life through her blog and now, after one full year of freelance, she’s recapped her experiences — and it’s absolutely worth a peek!

Check out her look back here, and tiptoe through her discoveries and triumphs as she faces them all, head-on! This is one gal who doesn’t look back and I think we’ll be seeing some GREAT things from her in the future.

Visit Jeremy & Kathleen for more, and be sure to check out Kathleen’s contributions to the Twittersphere by following @andkathleen!

Baby Steps To A Green Home Office

June 1, 2011 by  
Filed under blog

I think it’s safe to say that most of us would love to have a reasonably eco-friendly home office. Some of us might be especially GREEN friendly folks, or maybe when it comes to our utility bills, we’d just like to see a bit of savings! Whatever your motivation may be, it’s one thing to say “I want to go green!” and another thing entirely to do it!

So how do we start? What’s the first baby step on the way to a green(er) home office? I’ve put together a few great posts that chat about just this topic! From power saving tips to eco-friendly products, I hope you’ll all feel inspired by some of these suggestions!

What do you do to stay GREEN in your home office?

Working Smart With Simple Mom’s Tsh Oxenreider

May 16, 2011 by  
Filed under blog

Tsh Oxenreider is the brilliant and dedicated mind behind Simple Mom. Her blog, which was conceptualized in 2008, has since grown into a remarkable resource for home managers.

In a recent post, Tsh shares her fantastic motto for any and all work at home moms:

“Work smart, not just hard.”

Simple, yet ingenious.

From her site:

“Working smart means sitting like a sniper, aiming your efforts at a target, not barging in with a tommy gun and hoping to hit something of value.”

Applying this notion to her blogging career, which began as “a creative outlet with a possibly to fund [her] coffee habit”, she takes her readers through some incredibly useful steps which they might apply to their own situations, whether they are striking out as bloggers, or hoping to create their own success with a home business.

Click here to check out Tsh’s helpful post.
