Thanks for stopping by my site!
I’m Addi, a mom to 4 boys, and I’ve been blogging since 2011. This space of the is for me to share stories about my life, personal finance, online business and some of my favorite things.
When I started my blog, I was at a place where I felt like I had failed myself.
I graduated from college with a teaching degree and immediately knew that it wasn’t what I wanted to do.
At the time, I was working for a small distribution company and started to realize that I really enjoyed learning about business. So, I went back to college to get my MBA.
I finished my degree and then two months later, my first son was born. It was a magical time and I enjoyed every single minute of it.
A year later, I gave birth to my second son. Again, it was such an amazing time and I was over the moon with joy.
But… and I hate to say that there even was a ‘but'.
I felt like a failure.
I had two college degrees and wasn’t using either one of them.
Something was missing.
On the outside, my life looked happy. I was a new mom of two wonderful little boys, but on the inside, I felt like a failure.
At the time, my husband and I were building a home. During one of our meetings with the salesman, he mentioned to me that his wife was a stay-at-home mom, but also a blogger.
I remember shaking my head and pretending like I knew what that meant, but really I was like “a blogger, what the heck is a blogger?”
Naturally, I went home to figure out what it meant to be a blogger and how this woman did it while still being home with her two kids.
This was the day my life changed.
I didn’t even entirely know what it was, or what she did, but Frugal Fanatic was born that day (this was the original site I had created).
I was determined to make this work, and thought if she could do it then so could I.
I was clueless and spent hours upon hours trying to figure out how to do everything.
This is where I would like to tell you that I was an instant success and rode the money train with blogging, but that didn’t happen.
In 2014, I had my third son and barely kept everything afloat. I was constantly juggling my kids and my blog and felt so overwhelmed.
I was on the verge of giving up, but something inside of me felt the need to prove myself.
Prove that I could make this whole blogging thing work.
Prove that I could run a business and still be there for my kids.
Prove to myself that I wasn’t a failure.
I knew if I gave up, I wouldn’t just be giving up on myself, but on all of the women who needed to see that it’s possible to run a successful blog from home without sacrificing what is most important in their lives.
I wanted to prove to myself that I could pursue my dreams while still enjoying my life.
Luckily, I didn’t give up on myself and stopped treating my blog as a hobby. I started setting goals and became very intentional.
In 2016, my little blog that was started on a whim generated six figures.
Since then, there have been a lot of ups and downs.
As soon as I felt like I was headed in the right direction, I had to take an entire year off when I had my fourth son due to some health issues.
Again, I wanted to give up.
I kept thinking, why am I even doing this?
What’s the point?
But… I wanted to serve and help women just like me to see what was possible for them.
So here I stand with my 4 boys (my husband hates being in pictures 🤪) to help you dream bigger and overcome the everyday challenges that life throws at us together.
Fun facts about me:
- I met my husband in high school and we’ve been together for more than 20 years
- I LOVE to read
- One of my favorite things is eating cake for breakfast 🙈
- I’m an introvert
