It's Good To Be Back!

Hi Friends! It's so good to sit down and start writing again. I've really missed it! SO MUCH has happened to me over the time I've been gone and it made me do a lot of reflecting on what exactly I wanted to do with this blog. I felt like I was putting content out just to fill the blank space and it seemed just as empty if I didn't say anything at all.

First, I changed how I looked at My Mommy Place, I wanted a more simplistic look - I wanted chic and simple, nothing to take away from the points I want to make. Next, I wanted the meaning of My Mommy Place to change - yes it references "Mommy" because I am a mommy but this is a play on mixing work and parenthood. For me the two get blended so often - it's hard to see where the "mom" part of me stops and when "Lisa" jumps in. Somedays I have to be both at the same time. I want this to be a place for parents, not just mommies. There are so many different types of working families out there, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, single moms, single dads - they're all part of the tribe called parenthood.

Finally, I wanted to incorporate more tips on how to be a SUCCESSFUL working parent. Tips on being better organized, getting ahead at work, how to work toward and get raises you deserve and how to keep moving upward and forward. I want to help people breakdown the stigmas that parents are less focused, less dedicated, less motivated because they have children than someone that doesn't. In fact I want to make employers see that it's people who are parents that will work the hardest because they have a lot to lose. I didn't graduate from college, I learned everything as I went on and I feel like even though I'm not a CEO...yet, I'm definitely on my way and I want to take you with me. I want to share those experiences with you and give those confidence in themselves to be better providers for their families.

Even if you are not a parent, have no plans on becoming a parent - most of everything I'm going to walk through can work for you too! You are not excluded - I like non-parents too :)

I even have plans to incorporate videos into this blog - yes I want to talk to you! Let's get personal for a minute okay! I don't know how it's going to work out and I may be completely awkward at it but I think it's going to be great. And if I fail, well then I fail but at least I gave it a try! So keep a look out because the first video is coming soon....Oh My Lanta!

It's an all new My Mommy Place and we're going to talk about everything and we're going to succeed together!
