Becoming a Mom-preneur

PRIOR TO GETTING MARRIED AND BECOMING A MOM, I WORKED IN THE ADMINISTRATIVE FIELD FOR SEVERAL YEARS. I LOVED WHAT I DID. BUT THE DAY MY SON WAS BORN I REALIZED VERY QUICKLY THAT MY PRIORITY WAS NOW HIM! MY SON WAS BORN WITH A CONGENITAL HEART DEFECT AND DOWN SYNDROME. RECOGNIZING THAT WITH HIS SPECIAL NEEDS CAME DIFFERENT RESPONSIBILITIES OR SHOULD I SAY “INCREASED” RESPONSIBILITIES. I SOON BECAME A THERAPIST, TEACHER AND ADVOCATE.

AS TIME WENT ON I REALIZED I STILL LOVED WORKING, PLANNING, CREATING AND HELPING OTHERS. BUT IT WAS UNREALISTIC FOR ME TO GO BACK TO WORK, SO BECOMING A “STAY AT HOME” MOM ENTREPRENEUR WAS THE ANSWER FOR ME! IT ALLOWED ME THE FLEXIBILITY TO CARE FOR MY SON AND THE ABILITY TO CONTINUE UTILIZING MY SKILLS AND TALENTS AS AN ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONAL TO “PROVIDE CREATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR OTHER PROFESSIONALS BUSINESS NEEDS!” SO AFTER DOING A LOT OF RESEARCH OF WHAT I CAN DO THAT I CAN BE WITH MY SON AND STILL DO THE WORK I LOVED…I BECAME A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT AND OPENED MARLA MURASKO ENTERPRISES.

AFTER OPENING MY VIRTUAL ASSISTANT BUSINESS BACK IN 2003, I HAD THE WONDERFUL FORTUNE TO WORK WITH WONDERFUL CLIENTS SUCH AS: OUR LOCAL UNITED WAY, MARKETING PROFESSIONALS, A CHILDREN'S GYM, A SEMI-PRIVATE COUNTRY CLUB, A HEALTH AND WELLNESS COACH, A PARENTING COACH, MOM ENTREPRENEURS, AND OTHER LOCAL SMALL BUSINESSES.

HOWEVER, AFTER YEARS OF HELPING OTHERS WITH SOLUTIONS TO PROMOTING THEIR BUSINESSES I REALIZED I STILL WASN'T SATISFIED. SO OVER THE SUMMER (2012), I MADE A DECISION TO TAKE A HIATUS FROM MY VA BUSINESS, I STILL AM WORKING WITH A FEW SMALL LOCAL CLIENTS, BUT HAVE REALLY SWITCHED MY FOCUS TO SPECIAL NEEDS BLOGGING.DURING MY TIME AS A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT I ALSO BEGAN A NEW VENTURE - SPECIALMOMS ENTREPRENEUR CLUB (RECENTLY CHANGED TO SPECIALMOMS | A SPECIAL NEEDS PARENTING CLUB).
