Day 4

Finally its Friday!

Oh my. It’s 10:30pm and I finally get to sit down and write a post. Fridays you would think are easy. Last day of the week, everyone is burnt out at work trying to get home. A day to tie up loose ends before the start off the weekend. Not me! This girl has way too much going on!

At least I feel pretty productive today. I was able to secure furniture deliveries for Monday, which turns out is harder than you would think. The fireplace will be tuned up for the fall, sprinkler system will be winterized and we made it to the kids doctors appointment on time. Now to attempt to watch a movie. Tonight’s pick is The Intern. So far it’s a cute movie.

All in all it was a great day. Tomorrow is going to be just as crazy as most of my days. I’m sure the kids will want fresh waffles in the morning with the new waffle maker I just got from Amazon. Got too love Amazon! Really, with as crazy as my life is, it is always a good idea to order online so that I don’t have to make another stop on my way home from work… Shout out to my better half John for ordering it for me. XOXOXO

Stay focused. It’s all worth it in the end.

Day 3

Thursday chaos? Yes please!

As I sit at work running more data numbers for my engineering day job and listening to one of my most favorite motivational people on YouTube, I think to myself… Yes I grew up in Chicago. Yes my parents were factory workers. Yes, I made it out of the inner-city. Was it hard work? Absolutely! Part of the reason my life is chaotic is because I refuse to sit around waiting for life to happen and I go out and make life happen! Thanks for the pep talk Gary Vaynerchuk! 

It would be easy enough for me to be OK with where I was 10 years ago in my career but I was bored. I wanted more. Today, my life is much different than it was back then. Hell, it’s much different than it was 2 years ago. The reason for that I think is because I’m hungry for success, oh and I get bored easily! Every couple of years I choose to move either within my company or most recently I completely changed companies. Talk about utter chaos in my life… New job, new house, and a new family. I would not change it for the world. My family is my motivation!

I look at moving up the career ladder the same way most people move furniture around when the room needs a new look on a budget. I like what I do but it gets boring doing the same thing day in and day out. Change is good, chaos is fun! 

Learning new things is fun for me. Not necessarily school in particular but in general, I love to learn. Wherever I can find it, I will take it. Always look for ways to improve yourself and life will fall into place. Never give up!!

Day 2

Chaotic is the name of the game. Making it work in our favor is all we can do.

After getting up extra early to get the kids ready and to the bus stop, going to work for 9 hours, paying some bills, checking on my parents, picking up groceries, clipping coupons, and spending time with the family at dinner, I finally got the chance to sit down and write this post. Some days it’s harder than others to get everything accomplished. The universe does a great job at keeping me on track most of the time so again I am grateful.

Now, let’s get into why I started a website.

Currently I am a full-time Supply Chain Engineer at a transportation company. The people there are super awesome, helpful, and positive. I am blessed to be able to work at a place that has so much great energy. I really do enjoy being in the office, except for one minor detail… Ever since I was a little girl I have always been intrigued with the notion of being a business owner. This website is my next big step. Cant wait to see where it takes me!

Remember to keep going no matter how chaotic life gets! It is the only way you can get to where you are destined to be.

Day 1

Welcome to my very first website. I’m thrilled that you stopped by. My name is Eza and I am a working mom that is looking to see what the internet can do for me. My life is basically chaotic from the time I get up to the time I put the kids to bed. Yes its crazy, but its a fun crazy. There is no use going through life complaining about everything that falls out of place so I might as well embrace it. There is too much to be thankful for no matter how hard it gets.
