03/20/2022

I get asked all the time how I found the courage to quit my full time job to pursue this passion of mine so I thought I’d share the “whole” story!

When my husband and I first moved out to Leesburg after getting married, I was working full time for a government contractor under contract at the Navy Yard in DC. At that time, I had negotiated working from home full time to avoid the very long commute. That negotiation was HARD and came with a lot of assertiveness I did not have at the time, but in the end I was successful! I enjoyed my job for the most part, but I really loved my side hustle of making treats for friends and family so a year after working from home full time, I registered my business officially!

Working the bakery on the side was fine in the beginning, but as I got more experienced and received more business, the desire to do it more often grew strong! When I had my sweet little Emerson in January of 2018, I started talking to my husband about the possibility of being a SAHM and running my bakery. He was SO supportive but to be honest, I was terrified. I’ve always been pretty independent and the thought of not contributing financially to the family was difficult.

Then, one Friday morning, when my daughter was only 6 months old, I got a surprising phone call from my boss at the time. A new director had taken over at the contact and they wanted me to start coming into the office full time starting that Monday. Yup. They did that to me. No plans for daycare. Two weekend days to figure it out. So, I did something I still can’t believe. I told my boss that he just handed me the power to make a difficult choice and I officially put in my two weeks notice.

Looking back on that time, I was internally freaking out, but my husband really stepped up as a partner. He told me he was proud of me, and helped me map out a path forward. To this day, I’m SO glad that fire was lit under me because it has brought me here today. Building a business while navigating the life of a first time mom is not simple and I’ve learned SO much in the last few years.

TLDR: If you want something go for it! Just make sure you’re surrounded by the right people.
