Coffee, Chaos & Cuddles
I’m Jessi, the mom behind The Coffee Mom. I created this blog on whim, with nothing more than a hope and a dream. With a lot of hard work and plenty of caffeine, it has taken me on a whirlwind ride that has changed my life for the better.
Before starting on my blogging journey, I was a paralegal working towards my Master’s Degree in Legal Studies. When I became pregnant with my youngest, I was pretty promptly let go from my job, but continued to work on finishing my graduate degree. After finishing what felt like a dissertation while in full blown labor, I welcomed my son into the world and completed my graduate degree.
Once my boy was old enough, I was determined to go back to work as a paralegal. With my fresh new Master’s Degree, a few years of experience, and a positive attitude I thought I would have a job in no time….. But boy was I wrong!
Apparently, having a MS hurt me in my field… being told I was “over-educated” and “too expensive to hire”…. Yes, I let it get me down a bit, but I knew I had to do something, and that is when I started The Coffee Mom.
Thus began a new path that I never imagined possible.
I never thought this little blog would become a business, but it has! I have been blessed to work with amazing brands… Travel to some amazing places… And spend more time with my family!
Now here I am, a few years in and not only is my blog my business, I am also working for a local company managing social media for a number of clients. The Coffee Mom has, and continues to, open doors that I never thought possible!
Now, I’m not saying this to brag. On the contrary. I am sharing this to inspire you!
If you want to start a blog DO IT. Take the leap and don’t look back!
