Every night just about, I would stay up tossing and turning.
The $120,000 in debt that we owed was terrifying me like a nightmare. Think Freddy Kruger style.
We were living paycheck to paycheck and barely making ends meet. The minimum monthly payments that my husband I could make faced enormous interest rates each month.
There was now a baby boy on the way and I was scared even more.
Wait, shouldn’t a baby be a blessing? Not when you are in crippling debt up to your eyeballs. How were we going to be able to support this baby?
I wanted to stay home and care for my baby after my 3 months of unpaid maternity leave but we were now sky-high in credit card debt.
Something had to give!
While watching YouTube after working a 14 hour day, I came across a video on how to sell items in your own online boutique.
Could I make my own online boutique too? No way. I don’t think anyone would buy from me. I have no selling experience.
I’m just a designer with a Bachelors’s degree in graphic design.
I couldn’t even sell Girl Scout cookies back when I was a kid!
My precious baby boy started to cry for me. Maybe I could try…for him.
I could make this work! I can do it!
That’s all it takes to design your future. You must believe in yourself.
When you believe in yourself, you can do anything. You can achieve the impossible.

Fast forward 2 years and I was debt-free because of my online boutique. No credit card debt, no school loan debt, and no car payment.
Did I achieve financial freedom?
Not quite. I work remotely a few times a week as a design consultant, have a thriving business, and now this blog to share my journey with YOU!
Together, let’s be financially free.

Mom Beach’s Goal
My goal with Mom Beach is to help moms find work from home or start their own home business so they can stay home with their kids.
When you work a 9 to 5 corporate job, you miss out on important milestones such as first steps and first words.
Having great side hustles like a Shopify store and a blog enables me to have extra money to pay off debt and have family vacations.
