About

I am currently a solo-preneur but as a home-schooling mother of 4, and home-maker, I know I need more hands in order to turn the vision I have for MomPro's becoming into reality. MomPro is currently a blog but is destined for much more: A line of books, baby products, and videos. Since 2013 I've been steadily growing the MomPro brand and platform across social media channels and have a following of 90,000+ people. The blog is mainly made up of me sharing my thoughts, wisdom and encouragement to lead others in the right direction; however, I would like to develop it into a site more along the lines of BabyCenter.com. My vision: For MomPro to be equally as informative and yet more simplistic.

I am already in process of developing a line of books. I have an agent in place and a project that's nearing completion to be shopped around to publishing houses. With monies raised from this campaign I will be hiring individuals to tackle the necessary aspects of web-site development to make MomPro more competitive, in regards to popular websites of its kind, and for additional content creation; as well as, specifically, the making and producing of MomPro's first video short: The Letter I Wrote Before I Died. The subject material dealing with religion, marriage vows, abuse, and the popular quote/accepted concept and action of late: "Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer grows you or makes you happy." This spoken word art is completed and ready to be made into a video short all that's needed is the working capital to have life breathed into it.

Not all of life is perfect, happy or joyful and I desire MomPro to encompass life as a whole: Generationally linked, all women are mothers; teach what's good to those following in your footsteps. And so, beyond a baby center, it will be a life center; one that gifts renewed life and vision to those that visit, specifically targeted for moms in all the various stages, and scenarios, of motherhood.

I have studied under (and am still learning from) Sandi Karkowski, I am a Founding Member and participator within The Jerry Jenkins Writer's Guild, have participated in a MasterClass under James Patterson and am a member of SCBWI (The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators). I have been a mother, biologically, for 8 years and counting to two boys and two girls; 4 kids in 4.5 years, not for the faint of heart! Any monies raised beyond this campaign's fundraising goals will be put towards additional video shorts, a book trailer, continued web-site development, social media growth/content, as well as development of a baby line of products.

Risks and challenges

I believe the main risk and challenge we face is simply that I haven't done this yet. None of it, have I done before. However, that hasn't stopped me! From purchasing a domain name to starting up a blog; to building social media platforms and finding (and obtaining) a literary agent; to writing a full-fledged manuscript, developing a logo, and creating "videos" (like the one of me your'e seeing here); to this very Kick-starter campaign... I might not have done something before but I'm a life-long learner, capable and confident, and willing to go the extra-mile where most others quit. If we don't know something, we'll figure it out; or, find someone else, who has the know how and experience, to show us the way. Never having done something before doesn't mean we can't; the impossible is always possible! We can, and will, do this together; you and me.
