I started following Jessica Turner's blog, The Mom Creative, because we have a lot in common so I enjoy reading her stuff. We're both moms who work at home, we're bloggers, and we love taking photos.

I enjoyed following her journey as she published her first book called The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You.
Here's a blurb about it:
For the woman who is doing everything for everyone--except herself: Ever get to the end of the day and realize you did nothing for you? In this practical and liberating book, Jessica N. Turner empowers you to take back the fringe hours--those little pockets of time you already have in your day--in order to make time for your passions and practice self-care.
Based on original research, The Fringe Hours helps you overcome common hurdles that prevent women...
You are no longer beholden to employers - to someone else - for a job or career. I believe that the internet has changed everything.
YOU are now in power.
YOU now get to decide.
What work you do,
when you work,
where you work,
when you'll take time off,
and how much you're paid.
I believe that you CAN make a living from your passion if you choose to. You can take your loves, your hobbies, and your talents and make money from them online.
I believe that there's no such thing anymore as "I can't find a job." MAKE A JOB. Even if it's temporary while you search for a job like your old one or the one you went to college for.
I believe that it's not easy,
you have a lot to learn,
it won't happen overnight,
and you won't be rich tomorrow.
But you CAN do it.
It WILL happen.
I believe in YOU because you're smart, you're driven, you work hard, you have talent, and you have passion.
