3 Shades of Mom…
#3shades is a place for women who want to be part of a community that is invested in supporting and encouraging each other.
My goal is to help motivated mom’s create a lifestyle that allows them to be a mom, work, and govern their lives with values.
Hence the 3 Shades…
Where I’m Coming From…
After I had my first son I had decided I wanted to be a stay at home mom.
The first year FLEW by and all of a sudden my baby was one. That’s when I started feeling like I wanted to go back to work.
I just wasn’t ready to completely let go of being a stay at home mom…
With some soul searching and prayer…
I worked backwards from the type of job / lifestyle I wanted and found the steps I needed to do to get there...
Now. I am a FIRM believer that you really can learn anything.
So I found blogs, books, and people that allowed me to learn everything I could about things like:
- social media,
- online marketing,
- online courses,
- time management,
- community development,
- virtual companies…. just on and on!
So back into the workforce I went getting a 100% virtual position as a Content and Communications Manager for the absolutely wonderful and incredibly talented Anne Samoilov.
After spending a little over a year with Anne I transitioned into working with my husband at a sports bar that we purchased. I work on the business management side.
Life moved right along and we were blessed with another boy.
The skills I learned to work virtually the first time still allow me to work from home now even though the business is brick and mortar…
On to Social…
So this is basically how I use my social media accounts and you can follow along wherever you feel it fits the best!
[themify_icon icon=”fa-instagram” link=”https://instagram.com/kristinadedvkj/” ] Instagram – this is where you will see more “me” it will be about 50% business 50% personal…so if you’re interested in seeing the famous iPhone pics of people working at a coffee shop I suggest following me on Instagram! Just an FYI…I am completely addicted to Instagram.
[themify_icon icon=”fa-pinterest-square” link=”https://www.pinterest.com/3shadesofmom/” ] Pinterest – this is by far my favorite thing to do before bed or when I have a little bit of time to kill. I LOVE it!!
[themify_icon icon=”fa-facebook” link=”https://www.facebook.com/3shadesofmom” ]Facebook – 75% business related posts (blog posts, other peoples content, tools etc..) mixed in with about 25% behind the scenes type deal.
[themify_icon icon=”fa-twitter” link=”https://twitter.com/KristinaDedvkj” ]Twitter – I LOVE the lists feature – so please @ me with what type of business/industry you’re in so I can add you to a group – think virtual rolodex for people to scroll through by business type.
