Wow my life has really changed since my last blog post. I’m now a mother to a beautiful baby boy, Ryan Henry Smith. He was born on St. Patrick’s day – one day after his due date. I won’t bore you with the gory details but my pregnancy and labor was actually amazing and I can not wait to do it again (I know I sound nuts, you can smack me).
One thing that hasn’t changed? My passion for entrepreneurship and design. Having a child has motivated me even more as a boss mom.
I quietly started working again in early May, wrapping up a blog redesign for The Speckled Palate. Once the word was out I was back my schedule filled up quickly. It was such a great feeling to be back to work and it felt so empowering to also be able to juggle motherhood at the same time (insert pat on the back here).
Thank you to my clients who supported me during my pregnancy/maternity leave and to the new clients that were willing to wait until after my maternity leave was over to work together (you are AWESOME!)
I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Sugar Studios and for our little family.
True story: In 2016 I closed my business for 1 year after having our son and it was the BIGGEST mistake I've ever made. I totally get how overwhelming it can be to build an online business while raising a family... um, 3am work nights fueled by a pot of coffee - been there!
Which is why I've dedicated Sugar Studios + this blog to helping entrepreneurs like YOU build the business you've been dreaming of.
