Haven't I Always Been A WAHM?

#HOLSTRit #MOMpreneur #SAHM #SmallBusinessKC #StayAtHomeMom #WAHM #WorkAtHomeMom

I find the acronym WAHM (Work At Home Mom) a little confusing because when I didn’t have a “business” in my home I very much felt like a WAHM.  However, I get that we need to label things so I’ll go with it.

“Running a business from home (or trying to get one off the ground) helps me feel relevant and purposeful in a different way than from being a mom.  It keeps me busy, motivated, inspired, and well-rounded."  -Paper and Spark Blog

A year ago I’m not sure I would have really understood this statement but since I’ve been in the trenches of learning, starting and running a business I not only understand this but I agree with it.  I love love love being a mom!  I find great joy in spending time with my daughters and hope they always live right around the corner from me.  (I half-jokingly asked my husband if it’s too controlling for us to buy a cul-de-sac for all our girls and their families to live and be our neighbors…..He said "Yes!” by the way.)  Maybe it’s because I don’t have babies and toddlers any more and I’m not in constant high demand every day, but it’s nice to have something else to call my own.  I have found that working my business has been incredibly gratifying, extremely challenging and has turned on a creative part in my brain that I’m not sure I knew it existed. 

When all is said and done with HOLSTRit I’ll still be a WAHM, just under the SAHM (Stay At Home Mom) label and I’ll go with it.
