I see you struggling to get all of the things done.
Between home life, caring for children, managing schedules, working and everything else that comes with adulthood, it can be difficult to balance it all.
And forget about finally being able to complete one of those 122 projects stored away in your brain bank … or ahem Pinterest board.
But if you’ve landed here, it’s likely because you’re looking to make some change in some area of your life.
(or maybe you just like the pretty printables)
Either way, Welcome! I am happy to have you here.
Hi, I’m Allie.
I am a wife and recovering hot mess mom to two beautiful children.
Before starting Gogo Mama, I held careers in the financial and Human Resource fields. But, I always knew that I wanted more from life.
Less constraints, more travel, more freedom and most importantly more time with my family.
I also realized early on in my career, that I am just not cut out for the typical 9-5 job.
My peak working hours have never lined up with what society says it should.
I love day naps way too much and get the most work done when everyone else is peacefully sleeping.
So, after our first baby was born, I did what any sane, logical [insert sarcasm] person would do. I began to quit my job (with the consensus of my husband, of course).
I say began as it was a gradual process over several years. For some reason, it’s hard to let go of that financial security cold turkey. Who knew?
However, it was during this transition period that I began to really struggle. In my head, I was accomplishing SO much, but it wasn’t being translated to the real world.
Our house was a disaster, my business wasn’t going anywhere, yet I was constantly overwhelmed and tired.
I felt like a total failure, in every aspect of my life.
And what I know now is that I simply was trying to do too much. I didn’t have focus. I wasn’t organized. And I had absolutely no consistency. I needed to make some life changes – and fast.
Little did I know that change would come after a visit from the fire department. Apparently, when your carbon monoxide goes off, it is standard protocol (in our area) to make a home visit.
Talk about immediate panic.
You see, at this time, I was pregnant and preparing for our second baby. And our house was flipped upside down.
Every last room was complete chaos.
I remember the total embarrassment I felt. And I vowed, from that moment on, that I would not be in that predicament again.
So, I set out to create a more organized home. My first task was conquering dinners. And with that I designed our weekly meal plan schedule.
After the first week was over, I couldn’t believe how well it worked. We actually ate homemade dinners every night and we were consuming healthier meals. It was a win, win.
And with that, I was officially hooked!
I began to create printable after printable. I thought if they were helping our family, then surely others would benefit from them, as well.
And that is how I came to own the printable shop you see today.
So, if you’re like me and want to take your day by the reins, then come look around my shop. You owe it to yourself to stop settling for those “oh, crap!” moments.
