Thank you so much for having me. Jeremy. This is so exciting. Glad to finally be doing this.
Yeah, you know, what’s interesting about your journey? When I look through it is you’re an attorney by trade.
that’s, that’s Yeah,
in John Corcoran, my business partner calls himself a recovering attorney. Because he’s a practice anymore. But tell me about the going from attorney to ecommerce seller.
Yeah, definitely. It wasn’t like a straight progression. I don’t think back when I was in law school and you know, practicing for almost 10 years that I would have ever imagined I’d be where I am now. But, you know, it really comes down to the type of life that I wanted to have. You know, I’ve told the story many times but, you know, I’m a mom and wife first and foremost. And, you know, I was able to work 100 hours a week, billable hours when I was an attorney when I was single, you know, back in my heyday, but after getting married and having children it just wasn’t conducive to the life that I wanted to live. I wanted to be you know, free and, and have time freedom to be able to raise my kids and spend time with them and You know, not only are the hours and litigating very grueling but it’s really hard to leave that work at the office right you come home with it I’m sure john has the same stories and so pretty much a couple years after my first daughter was born was when you know my husband and I decided and we have to figure out something else. And so we made that big leap for for me to stay home and you know, so grateful that was the first
thing you did so you’re like, Okay, hundred hours a week. A child of anyone is had a child like you don’t sleep you know and so doing that with not sleeping Charles not sleeping. What was the first thing you decided to do? Like Okay, I need something else.
I just I wanted out so badly. I literally was living on no sleep and I’m you know, also really avid into working out so I had to fit my workouts in and I would go on my lunch breaks. I would drive the daycare was like, you know, with traffic like 40 About minutes away, see her for maybe 15 minutes as a baby, you know, as a six week old baby, and then go back and I just had this just huge pit in my stomach day in, day out. And so I told my husband at that time, you know, he was in pharmaceutical sales at that time, and he was making good money, but certainly, you know, not enough to replace my income, I just said, I don’t care if we have to sell our house, move into an apartment,
you know, enough at that point,
fine. I will do whatever it takes to stay home with my baby. And you know, we wanted to have another so at that point, it was just kind of like jumping off without a parachute. And we were gonna figure it, you know, out on the way down.
