MAKE IT HAPPEN: THE YOUNG MOMMY GUIDE TO CREATING THE CAREER YOU CRAVE
When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter in 2006, I was overwhelmed. Actually, that’s probably the biggest understatement of my life. I was terrified and had no direction.
Do I work? Should I be a stay-at-home mom? What do I do about school? Should we (my boyfriend and I) get married? Where will we live? And so on and so on.
But every pregnancy book and mommy “how-to” guide approached the topic from a fairly one-dimensional viewpoint: they assumed all moms were married, with a six-figure job, a four bedroom house, and a host of family and friends who were completely over the moon about the new addition to the family.
Well. That wasn’t my experience at all.
Since I couldn’t find that book or that magazine that I could relate to, I created it myself. In May 2011, the first of five books, Make It Happen: The Young Mommy Guide To Creating The Career You Crave, hit the web, available in a variety of formats for your pleasure. It is available in paperback or as an ebook.
Half tips, half relatable stories, This Is How We Do It features essays from eight moms on how to make the most of every day. With a variety of experience (some raising toddlers, others wrangling teenagers), they’ve seen it all and learned to laugh about it. I served as editor and wrote one of the essays for the project. This is the first group ebook from TheYoungMommyLife.com, dedicated to helping young mothers become self-sufficient through the power of their voice.
