I’m Breezy, creator of By Your Bootstraps. Follow me as I turn my hobbies into a full time income as a single parent. Learn from my mistakes and build your life around your passions!
It’s always been my greatest desire to help others learn, grow & overcome, especially when life throws a curve ball!
I recently became a single parent. And, honestly- even though I felt like a single parent before the separation, every aspect of life has changed for my boys and I- for the better.
So how am I doing it? I’m pulling myself up By My Bootstraps! I’m on a journey to turn my hobbies into a full time income for my family, and I want to share every step with YOU!
My first job is being Mom. I’m dedicated to raising my own kids and home schooling.
Because I’ve been a stay at home mom for many years years now, (and I’m NOT willing to give that up for a nine-to-five) I’ve had to get really creative and find ways to make a decent living while raising my kids!
Do you ever read articles about moms who have turned their passions into profit? Yeah- me too! I am determined to be the next success story! But before things get better, they’re probably going to get a little ugly…
That’s why I’m documenting this journey, and I want you on board! *If I can make this happen, I know you can, too!*
From blogging to crafting, bee keeping and raising Biewer Terriers– I’ve got a lot going on! I’m going to share with you the things that work and the things that don’t.
If you’re ever lucky enough to make the courageous decision to create your own success from your hobbies, you’ll be able to learn from my mistakes and get to your dreams more quickly by following along!
A little background info- I was financially independent up until marriage. I worked in restaurants from a young age, and had excellent coaching in personal finance from my wonderful family since the beginning! I’ve also made mistakes though- and I can confidently say those mistakes made me better at keeping my sh*t together in times of uncertainty!
You’ll find a special page on here dedicated to personal finance- because I’ve been there! If I hadn’t stuck to my envelope method, and set myself up for massive savings, I wouldn’t have the beautiful life I have today, and I wouldn’t be able to share my story with you!
I can say that I’m quickly learning how to manage my time so that I don’t get burnt out so often. How to maximize my strengths, magnify my success, and give to myself FIRST so that I can give to others. I want to help YOU do this as well!
I”ll explain exactly all the resources that I’ve discovered to overcome adversity and rise to meet every challenge- and how YOU can do the same!
Here’s an open invitation– join me in this stressful, wonderful, organized mess that we live everyday, and reach our biggest goals and greatest potential! Share all the ways you’ve become bigger and better than your situation, or share all the reasons you just can’t seem to get it together.
Learn from my failures. Resolve to build the life you deserve just by following your passions!
Sincerely Yours, Breezy
