In 2011, I walked out of my 3rd grade classroom in Japan, after 4 years of teaching, and knew I would never step back into a classroom setting teaching other peoples kids. It was emotional and freeing all at the same time! I honestly had no clue what I would do, but I knew I couldn't teach anymore. Working for the Department of Defense school system was a dream come true, but the year before I had delivered my first baby, and suddenly my dreams had changed drastically. I spent a year taking him to a Nanny every day and crying on my way to work. This wasn't the life I wanted. Suddenly my dreams were something I never imagined.
BUT! I was scared. I had student loans. I had my Masters in Curriculum and Instruction- how would I do this without feeling like that was wasted money and time on degrees? HOW would I get my husband to be on board?
In 2012, we moved to California and that is where my entrepreneurial life began. First, I opened an in-home daycare. I thrived there. It was wonderful. It was a blessing. I could stay home with my son and still bring in money. Britt and I started a business together. We sold all the fitness things! We were both runners so we would sell headbands, water bottles, decals. ALL THE THINGS! We attended EXPOs together. It was great! This was our first taste of an online business! You can't help but wonder where you would be if you had kept going and growing!
Then we moved to Florida. At this time I had let my teaching license go and decided not to open another daycare! But what would I do? We needed the income. But I also wanted to be home with my, now 2, children! I knew there had to be a better way! Over the next few years Brittany and I invested in a lot of higher business and leadership trainings. We would both open businesses and thrive and we would always come back to how we desired to work together! If you know us at all, you know that we work very well together!
We've done most everything ya'll! And by the end of the year I hope we can share a few more things with you that we have done! We aren't afraid of failure! And we don't shy away from success! We know that anything is possible! We learned a lot in many of our coaching programs. But the main thing we took from them is we are not willing to sacrifice our families for business! I got caught up in the "hustle culture" and I had to get myself out ASAP! So for us, family first. Slow-paced life! It takes practice to do this when you run businesses- but you can do it!
This is when THIS SHALOM HOME was birthed!
Our hope with TSH has always been to inspire other mamas to slow down in life, all while still making money! There is nothing wrong with a woman wanting to contribute to her family. And our goal is to help mother's with ways they can do that by simply taking things that they love or are gifted at and sharing with others!
Here's the thing. In today's world- it's dang limitless! Digital Products are the way to go. If you are looking to make a little extra income, we can help! It really is whatever you make it! In August, we started a Digital Course to help us in our businesses. It has been a game changer. Our goal with it was to take the course and put it into practice in our own businesses before offering the course to others. If you are looking for ways to make money online, chances are- you have seen digital courses being promoted.
Here is what makes us different: WE WANTED TO SHOW OUR FOLLOWERS IT WORKS with your business, not to soley just sell a course! While the course in itself is amazing to sell for income, we should all be wanting to create our VERY OWN products. Because when you do this- you own it 100%.
If you have stepped into that big place of FAITH to trust the Lord for finances while you stay home.
Or maybe you're still working, with a deep, quiet, whispering desire to just be a mom.
