Mom Bloggers / All Around Pinay Mama


Sharon, what does writing the blog mean to you and why did you become an entrepreneur in the first place?

Blogging was once my diversionary activity to keep me sane while juggling different roles. But now, I am so blessed to have this platform as a means to share something purposeful and useful while learning from my readers.

It is also a means to collaborate with awesome brands and amazing people. It is like doing something that you love and it loves you back. The fulfillment that blogging gives to me is more than money can buy. The monetary profit is just secondary.


What is your business about? How did you come across your idea?

Blogging is more than a business. It is a passion, something that I’ve started to serve as an outlet, a way to express myself but it is inevitable that it paves the way for more writing and brand collaborations.

I never thought that it would open doors of opportunities that I don’t feel that I am working. How happy it is, isn’t it?


Since you are also a mom… How do you balance your personal and professional life?

It is a matter of doing what you love and loving what you do. If you love what you do, you’ll find time doing it.


Have you made any adjustments to your personal and professional life to juggle these two roles?

Yes, of course. It is a matter of choosing my battles and finding time to do what truly matters make it easier for me to keep going.


What is the greatest obstacle you have faced in achieving the success you desire? How do you overcome it?

Taking care of my family while fulfilling my personal goals is tiring at times but challenges make my life worth living. Trials give me a signal that I am on the right track.

Balancing my life as a mom and professional may be challenging but mindfulness makes difficulties easier to bear. I don’t consider obstacles detrimental. In experiencing those, I don’t lose something but I gain something.

Every situation comes with a learning experience. Having this notion makes me deal with problems easily because I know that I become a better person when faced with those challenges.


What are the things that help you stay organized throughout the day and get time for everyone and everything? Is there a special time planner, or workspace design, or technique that you use?

Tell us your time management secrets!

I believe in what Benjamin Franklin said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail.”

I still do conventional planning, “pen and paper type”. A tabular weekly calendar spread works for me. I do my planning weekly. I sit down for less than an hour every Sunday to write the things that I need to accomplish in a week. I make sure to list down a maximum of three activities to do in a day.

Adding more is not going to help. Life is not a race, you know. I also prepare the things to be used the following day the night before. I also do meal planning with my husband. We also own less, do “clean as you go”, return things to their proper places, and chores are distributed among family members to save time.

I schedule my work, school, and family-related tasks strategically. In homeschooling my son, I do “integrative teaching” to minimize activities and maximize impact. I also find time to unwind and take care of myself to avoid burnout. After all, I cannot give what I don’t have.


Any recommendations to Moms who dream about being entrepreneurs, but just can’t get started?

You have to think of your passion and use it as a springboard to what venture you would like to pursue.

When you work and you feel that as if you are playing and when you wake up in the morning and you are excited to do your “mompreneur” tasks, that means you are in the right place.

Do what makes you happy and succeed even money shall follow.
