Hello! Thank you for stopping by Redefining Mom™!
My name is Monica and I live in Buffalo, NY with my husband and our 4-year-old daughter.
First and foremost, I am a wife and a mom. After 11 years in Corporate America, working in Channel Marketing for a Fortune 100 company, I quit my corporate job in January 2016 to work for a small company where I negotiated flexible benefits.
In August 2016, I turned my blog into a business and started working for myself full-time!
I teach mom entrepreneurs how to ditch their 9-5 careers and start thriving online businesses! My course is called Busy Moms Building: 12 Steps to Running Your Own Online Business for Busy Moms. In the course, I teach busy moms how to build their own online businesses while balancing work and family at the same time. I don’t believe that women have to choose between their careers and family. You can have anything you set your mind to.
I am a working mom and that is something I take a lot of pride in.
Redefining Mom came about after one too many google searches I made in the early months of my daughter’s life that resembled something like: balancing work and being mom, mom guilt, jobs for stay at home moms
In other words, I felt a bit desperate and I decided starting my own blog would be a good way to connect with other women experiencing the same feelings. In July 2013, Redefining Mom was born and since then I have met so many wonderful (and powerful) working moms! It has also allowed me to write for one of the most popular working mom blogs on the internet, Working Moms Against Guilt.
My mission is to empower women to build thriving online businesses that fit their family values.
Now that I am four years into this mom-gig, I have found a chaotic balance and stopped worrying about if working is the right decision for me because it is. That is not to say it isn’t hard or that I never experience guilt, I’ve just learned how to cope better. I truly do believe I am happiest when I am challenging myself in difficult ways and that includes excelling in my career while being an awesome mom.
