My name is Shannon and I am so very happy to meet you! I am the proud momma of six beautiful boys. They bring joy to my days, hugs for my tears, wisdom for my ponderings and humor for everything else. I could not imagine life without them.
People have told me I should write a “mommy blog”, since I have ample professional knowledge and a hefty personal experience with parenting. I started my blog almost a year ago. I also started writing my first book, From Board Rooms to High Chairs: A Career Guide for At-Home Moms, at the same time.
I work from home as a freelance writer. My specialty is parenting articles. I write for other blogs, websites and magazines as well. The Washington Post recently published Making Goals When You Are A Parent, an article I wrote after I realized exactly how difficult it is for parents to start their own business.
I know how to talk to moms. I have a knack for making people feel comfortable enough to open up about whatever may be troubling them. I can get any message across to parents in a nonjudgmental, caring way. My job is to empower parents.
If you are reading this because it is your job to empower parents as well, then we should connect! I can help. Do you need to draw parents in to your organization? Do you have services or programs to offer them? Maybe you have a product to sell or a curriculum to teach? Or are you trying to raise community awareness? Whatever your goal, I can reach out to your parents with newsletters, blog posts, and other such media. I can meet them exactly where they are at in life and show them how they can benefit from what you have to offer. Let’s get in touch!
Being a mom – especially after the twins were born – is the hardest thing I have ever done. We all need love and support to help us through our days. I hope you can find that here, at Making Mommas.
