Hi, I'm Suzi...
I am a mom to two beautiful little girls, a little boy and the wife to a wonderful man.
I studied Industrial Engineering at a huge college and spent years working for Fortune 100 Companies like General Electric and Walt Disney World optimizing their systems, reducing cost and inventory, and implementing Lean Six Sigma.
Managing fulfillment, service and improving manufacturing lines at General Electric.
I miss wearing that badge! It was pure joy to work for Disney!
Since childhood I’ve loved learning about computers. I remember drawing more on Microsoft Paint than with pencils and paper.
In college I taught web design as a teaching assistant and created homework and project assignments. I would stay up until 3AM coding IF THEN and DO UNTIL loops.
I graduated and entered the corporate world. I enjoyed spending my days on the manufacturing floor making the processes more efficient and effective.
In 2011, while still at corporate I started blogging about my upcoming wedding to the man of my dreams. Little did I know that my love for technology, efficient systems and web design would turn me into a professional blogger.
But as soon as my first daughter was born my world changed and I became a stay at home mom.
During my daughter’s nap times and early bedtime, I needed an outlet for my productive energy.
I went back to blogging. It was flexible, allowed me to use my skills and connect with other amazing moms.
I fell in love. It was my creative outlet while my sweet girl took naps. I blogged about my breastfeeding journey, motherhood, recipes and crafts. I loved it! I started connecting with other moms and didn’t feel so lonely anymore.
I had the best of both worlds. I was a stay at home mom and I used my skills and met new friends online. It was wonderful. I grew my blog tremendously and found a passion to help my friends also join me on this amazing journey.
I realized that with my teaching skills, my Industrial Engineering and time management background, that I could help other moms. I’m not a fantastic writer, but I can break down complicated procedures into easy to follow steps.
I was also pregnant with our second baby girl and had a sudden drive to start a second blog! So I created StartAMomBlog.com.
Blogging is a very rewarding and extremely flexible activity. It also has the potential to grow into something amazing. But it can be time-consuming if you do not have standards and processes.
This is where my Industrial Engineering experience plays a vital role in StartAMomBlog.
I am providing you with the same efficiency and optimization techniques that worked at Fortune 100 Companies to gain traffic and make your blog successful.
Join the other millions of moms who blog and make money from home. You can start a blog too.
As a mom blogger your time is limited, you have a thousand things pulling you in different directions. I hope that the advice you find at StartAMomBlog helps you become the most successful, efficient, money making mom blogger you can be!
You can do this too!
I launched StartaMomBlog.com on January 18th, three weeks before the birth of my second daughter. I grew my email list to over 1,000 by May, launched my ebook in June, and my course in September, and made $53,000 in my first year. I am beyond blessed!
Thank you for visiting! Let’s connect, I’d love to hear your story.
