Hi! I’m Becky and I am a mompreneur that has been featured in the New York Times, Business Insider and the Huffington Post.
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.

Finding creative ways to make money and losing weight has always been a priority for me. Even as a child, I would sell artwork of Treasure Trolls and paperclip jewelry in order to afford to buy lunch.
After my mom lost her job due to a schizophrenic episode at work, she struggled to pay the bills. We went without electricity and running water for several years. I would spend my time drawing and writing creative stories since I had no TV to watch. “One day, I will be a success,” I would say to myself.
I was the smelly fat kid in class because we seldom had clean clothes so I was teased all the time. I barely had any friends and walked with my head down. When I got home from school, my mother would mentally and physically abuse me due to her illness. I have forgiven her for her transgressions with time but it was hard. It wasn’t her fault that she abused me. I don’t let her abuse define me and you shouldn’t let any past abuse define you either.
At last, my dad got custody of my sister and I when I was 12 so we went to live with him. Things were better, but money was always tight with his teacher’s salary. I would say my life improved so much and I felt happier. I then learned that my mom lost our house and became homeless.
My dad helped my mom by getting her into a group home. She got on meds and was stable enough for us to visit her. I noticed her demeanor had changed greatly and it was hard to carry on a conversation with her. Her mind was almost gone at this point.
Due to my hardships growing up, I strive to be my best self. However, I keep thinking I am not good enough since my mom would always verbal abuse me. It’s difficult to overcome that part of my life, but I am growing so much. If you have been abused then my heart goes out to you. It is hard to get over being abused, but it is possible.
I want the best for my son, Bryan, so try to work as hard as I can to provide for him. That is why I started side hustling in order to pay off over $80k in debt and start paying down the mortgage.
If anything happens to me, I want him to still have his own home and not lose it like I did when I was little. I hope to get the house all paid off by the time he starts school so I can contribute to his college fund. I had to take out large loans for college myself, so don’t want him to have to struggle with that.
After doing the keto diet, I have lost over 50 lbs to this date. I’m no longer considered fat, but I have that fat woman mindset. It is tough to overcome that but I’m growing through it. I have been seeing that I’m treated different after losing so much weight, like men are opening doors for me and stuff like that. It is odd.
Mom Beach was started to help you be a success in your finances and home life.
I’m here as a testament that you can be successful, even if you have a bad past like I do. Your past does not matter at all, you can do anything you set your mind to. The past is just the past and no longer defines who you are.
It is all about how you define yourself. If you don’t think you can make money, then you won’t. If you don’t think you will lose weight, guess what? You won’t!
I welcome you with open arms to my blog!
