I never knew I’d become a mom so soon.
My dream was to finish college, work, and build a company later. My mom had done the same and is now a successful business owner. The key is to get ample experience in the field you want to venture into. After that, you have enough knowledge to wade through the murky waters of starting a new business. Unfortunately, a month after graduation, I found out I was pregnant and have been a stay-at-home mom ever since. My partner is the best, so I have no complaints on that front, just a few regrets about how life turned out. The other night, I woke up soaked because the cooling system was off. My partner was sound asleep beside me and didn’t seem to notice the air conditioning was off. I chose not to wake him up because he had an early shift and tiptoed out of the bedroom. The whole house felt warm and muggy on that summer night because the air conditioning wasn’t working. I tried turning the cooling system on and off, but nothing happened. Even the thermostat was off, so I had a suspicion it was the reason the cooling system wasn’t working. We had an old dial thermostat that kept failing, and it seemed this time it was done. Since it was late at night, I left the HVAC company a message on their website and knew they’d call the following morning with a follow-up. That’s the beauty of having an online chat option for customers.
