It all started when…
As a single, full-time working outside the home (WOTH) mom of four, I started The Barefoot Office Mom because I wasn’t finding a whole lot of practical information to help me grow my own business ideas. I didn’t have the luxury of being able to stay home with my kids after my divorce, nor did I have a husband’s second income to fall back on. But I still wanted to do more with my interests, talents and skills- all of which were going largely unused in my day job.
More to Life Than The Daily Grind
I knew I wasn’t the only WOTH mom out there who wanted more out of life than the 9-5 grind. So I set about creating a business minded community full of resources specifically for working moms with full time jobs.
I hope The BOM inspires and motivates you to go after your business dreams today!
