Balancing Life as a New Full-Time Mom and Part-Time Business Owner

Balancing Life as a New Full-Time Mom and Part-Time Business Owner

As a new mom, I’ve received a lot of questions about how I plan to run Elle & Company while staying home with my little one. 

How has this transition been? What does my schedule look like? What am I doing for childcare?

So in today’s episode, I’m diving into the five key things I’ve learned about balancing motherhood and business since coming back from maternity leave last month. 

I still have a lot to learn, but I hope this episode will resonate with those of you who are in the same boat (and those who are planning to be a stay-at-home mompreneur in the near future)!

5 Things You Should Investigate During Your 14-Day Squarespace Trial

I love Squarespace for many reasons. It’s easy on the eyes, user friendly, affordable, compatible across all devices, and easy to edit. One of the other features Squarespace offers is a free 14 day trial.

Squarespace’s free 14 day trial allows you to try out the platform and get to know the features before subscribing. And they don't even require a credit card to start your trial!

But you may be wondering what features you should check out and what you should investigate before you take the plunge. So here’s 5 things to investigate during your 14 day Squarespace trial.

My Step-by-Step Guide for Getting Started with Squarespace

My Step-by-Step Guide for Getting Started with Squarespace

I wrote my first Squarespace blog post series back in 2015.

I covered everything from how to set up pages and navigation to how to use Squarespace blocks, Squarespace SEO and metrics, setting up a blog and shop, and customizing your Squarespace website.

And even though these posts are 3 years old, they continue to be some of the most popular on my site. You may have even stumbled across Elle & Company for the first time through one of them!

But Squarespace has continued to change and grow since then, so it’s time for an update.

Over the next several weeks I’ll be walking you through a brand new Squarespace series. I’ll expand on the how-to posts, include new updates, and share about topics I haven’t yet covered.

If you’re currently using Squarespace for your website or plan to get your Squarespace site up and running in the coming months, you won’t want to miss these posts!
