I don’t always fly by the seat of my pants, but when I do, it is to follow my heart! Grab a cup of coffee and join me for an eight minute video on why I cashed in my 401k to be a Stay At Home Mom. What was Marcus’ reaction? What did my boss say? Could we afford for me to make such a drastic move? No worries, those questions are all answered in this video!

    I know how you feel! When I was pregnant, I had everything planned out regarding work and babysitter but at my 18th week appointment, we found out we are having twins and all of my plans disappeared. But, I love being home with my kids and no money would bring me as much joy as they do every single day!

    Thank you so much Meg! My son will be 12 this month and I am so glad I made the decision to stay at home with him. I am now a Realtor with the most flexible schedule ever. I feel so blessed. Meg, do you work outside the home in addition to working from home as a blogger/influencer?
