Hi! I’m Sarah, my pronouns are she/her, and I’m a nerd.
A newsletter nerd, a crochet nerd, and a nerd nerd. Give me a newsletter about a crocheted Doctor Who blanket, and I’m in my happy place!
I also love my kids (I have 2). They are neurospicy, so life in my house is never boring.
I was called “A good momma” the other day because I was well-prepared for a situation involving a toddler.
Sure, I’ll take that, with grace and gratitude.
But here’s the thing; I didn’t get to be a good momma on day 1.
As a matter of fact, Day 1 was quite the craziness of “What do I do?” “Am I holding them right?” and “Why are they not eating?”
In the beginning, it was really overwhelming.
I have forgotten diaper bags at home, run out the door without toddler snacks (heaven forbid!), and even left the most precious stuffie at Grandad’s house after a sleepover.
It’s taken practice, support, and lots of trial and error to get to the point where my instinct of preparedness is considered by someone else to be “a good momma”.
So what on EARTH does this have to do with newsletters?
Go start your newsletter. You might feel like you don’t know how to do it. That the tech is overwhelming, that you haven’t got a clue what to use as a freebie, and that it’s hard to come up with content ideas. (BTW, if this is you, book a call with me; I’m your solution!)
It might feel overwhelming, scary, or time-consuming at first, but once you get going, it gets easy.
And I’m always here to help. That’s what community is all about. Just like it takes a village to raise a kid, it also takes one to build a business!
NOTE: Just to be clear: if you accidentally leave “Thomas”, the beloved, ragged, stained pillow at Grandad’s house, go to the grocery store without a container of Cheerios to snack on, or do any number of the millions of things parents do while trying to survive parenthood, it does not make you a bad parent!
