A Brief History
The Innovative Mom was borne out of my experience as a Mother, wife, single mom, teacher, employee, financier, real estate agent, chef, mechanic, handy chick, friend, lover, driver, physician (or maybe his assistant) and so many more hats that were worn. It is borne out of being homeless, exhausted, sad and lonely but knowing deep within that I was The Innovative Mom and dreaming, planning and execution were the only option. It was borne out of such a deep and endearing love for my children that I needed to survive and continue to give hope to them by maintaining hope within myself. When tired = motivated, sleepy = alert, lonely = love, exhaustion = creativity, 24 hours = time.....this was when I realized I.M. strong, dare I say powerful, I.M. kind, I.M. gentle, I.M. loving, I.M. creative, I.M. Innovative! This is my platform to help mothers become the women that they dream of during car rider line, grocery store trips, late nights and early mornings! We are Innovators! We are .. The Innovative Mom!
