You Don’t Have to Choose Between Being a Stay at Home Mom or a Working Mom with Allison Lancaster

Allison Lancaster is a mom, wife and six-figure business owner.

She has since grown not only a lifestyle blog but has become a trusted online business manager for entrepreneurs who are seeking to find purpose, passion and freedom.

She resides in East TN with her husband and two children.

Key Takeaways

  • There is an online world waiting to support moms who want to work from home and also raise their babies.
  • Everybody has marketable skills.
  • More than ever, traditional jobs can be done online. You can be a blogger, social media manager, online business manager, graphic designer, web designer, etc.
  • Amazon hires customer services representatives to work from home.
  • Be resourceful and do your research. Be persistent and don’t give up.

  • Be sure to have a financial cushion. That cushion will look different for everyone, depending if there is another income for the household. 
  • Make sure you have a support system for this transition. Whether it be locally with your family and friends or in Facebook Groups. 
 

Actionable Solutions

 How to Find Out What Skills Are Marketable

  • Ask your family and close friends what they see in you that you are good at.
  • Make a list of 5 things, that if money was no object, you would do for free. 
 

How to Build a Plan and Support System

  • Decide what you want to learn.
  • Find a person or a small group of people that are a few steps ahead of you doing what you want to be doing. This can easily be found in Facebook Groups. 
  • Ask them what they did to get to where they are. Implement their advice. 
  • Join Facebook Groups and be resourceful. Answer questions, offer advice, support other people. 
  • Reach out to people you know in real life and be resourceful to them. See if you can help them in any way.
  • Create a plan with your strategy of what you’re going to do and present it to your spouse. Decide how much financial cushion you are going to set aside and how many months you are going to try before calling it quits. 
  • If you are working a 9-5, you can work in the evenings and weekends. This is called “moonlighting your business” or a “side hustle.”
 

 

 

 

Hardest Decision To Make as a Mom

  •  Deciding where she needed to divert her attention when her daughter was born (who was also in the NICU)… but this time she had a two-year-old that wanted and needed attention. That’s when she learned she needed to ask for help.

A-Ha Moment About Parenting

  • Forgiveness is something we need to do often. There are shortfalls throughout the day that can add up to a lot of mom guilt for trying to be everything to everybody. Give yourself grace.
 

Most Excited About

  • Her husband is leaving his 9-5 and working full time at home with her on her business and raising the babes.
