I’ve always known, since I was a little girl, that I was meant to do big things in the world. Even through the lowest points in my life, that feeling never went away.
I’ve finally found that big thing: Young Moms Club.
I remember laying on the floor in my new apartment right after I left my husband (I was too broke to buy a bed) and thinking “Hmmm.. Well I’m 21, am raising 2 kids alone, don’t know how I’ll pay rent next month, I’m sleeping on the floor every night.. How is it possible that I could be meant for things much bigger than this?” It didn’t make sense at the time and I didn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel but there was still that whisper coming from inside me saying “Keep going. You’ll figure it out.”
I’d start to lose hope, want to just stay in bed, get angry when I saw people having it easier than me.. and then I would think to myself “I can’t wait till the day when I can look back and say ‘Wow, that sucked! I’m so glad to be out of that!”
Fast forward a few years: I can proudly say now, “Wow, that sucked! I’m so glad to finally be out of that!”
And then the realization hit. Yeah, I did get out of that. But there are now other girls out there that are in it. There are girls who are going to be in it. They just don’t know it yet.
So I started thinking, “What would’ve helped me IMMENSELY when I was going through that shit storm? Instead of taking years to get out of, could it have taken less time, maybe 1 year? It might’ve if I’d had the right kind of support and encouragement. What if instead of feeling bad about myself and the mistakes I’d made, I had connected with a group of girls going through the exact same thing who I could go to with any problem and not feel alone or ashamed.”
Then my Entrepreneur Spirit surfaced and I started thinking, “What if there was a website specifically for Young Moms that taught all the Life and Business skills that older moms usually figure out before they have kids? Belonging to a website like that would’ve been a life saver for me.”
So I decided to create it.
Now a year after the vision was born, I’m thrilled to announce that Young Moms Club is ready to Rock!
I have overwhelming gratitude for all the girls who joined the club early and have sent me messages sharing their life with me. I know it takes a lot of guts to open up and share your story and I have HUGE respect for each of you. Thank you 🙂
I am so excited to connect with all of you mommas. I have blog posts, videos, group chats, contests and lots of other cool things planned for the club. Your opinions and ideas are always encouraged so if you have any, post in a comment below or send me an email!
