With school now back in session, the moms of Moms Making Six Figures are ready for another year of activities, from ball games to field trips.
“I always say that I’m not a stay-at-home mom because I still work, but I’m an available mom,” said Jennifer Becker, mother of two girls, now 4 and 6 years old. “I can work, yet I can still do all the things that stay-at-home moms get to do.”
After a 15-year corporate career, Becker began a new career with Moms Making Six Figures, a San Diego-based marketing company that allows women to stay at home and either replace or supplement their income. Having been a part of the company for nearly two years, Becker’s thankful she left the corporate world behind.
Moms Making Six Figures offers her the flexibility she needed as a mom without sacrificing a six-figure income.
Throughout the summer, for example, Becker worked fewer hours and enjoyed three out-of-state vacations and a number of trips to the beach and Disneyland with her family. Now that her children are back in school, she plans to easily adjust her schedule from 10-15 hours per week to 30 hours per week.
“I like working with other business-minded women who really want a career but still want to be a mom,” said Becker, who previously worked as a supply chain director, first in aerospace and then in consumer goods.
One of Becker’s colleagues, Michele Martin, also left a nearly 15-year career in the corporate world to start a career with the company.
“I really enjoyed my corporate life,” said Martin, who worked in technology for more than 14 years. She started with Moms Making Six Figures in 2012. “I went to school, worked really hard and really enjoyed climbing the corporate ladder. But when you have children and things start to change, there’s a shift in your priorities.”
Martin traded one dream job for another and is still able to earn a six-figure income but also benefit from a flexible schedule.
“You dream of being a mom, but you don’t dream of someone else picking them up and not being able to volunteer in the classroom,” said Martin, a mother of five. “With Moms Making Six Figures, I feel like I can accomplish all that I want.”
Offering women an opportunity to work from home, local entrepreneur Heidi Bartolotta quit her job and founded Moms Making Six Figures with two other women in December 2009. Since then, Moms Making Six Figures has grown to more than 400 team members, enabling women to either replace or supplement their income.
“It provides flexibility for your life,” said Bartolotta, a former pharmaceutical sales representative, whose daughters are 9 and 11 years old. “There’s also no cap on your income.”
Although the company launched in San Diego, there are now team members across the United States and around the world. Teams have long been established in San Diego County, Orange County and the Bay Area. Teams have also launched in several states, including Arizona, Nevada, Illinois, Georgia, Tennessee and New York, as well as overseas in Australia, Poland and the United Kingdom.
Women from very different education levels, backgrounds and work styles make up Moms Making Six Figures, Bartolotta said. Interested team members don’t have to have a marketing background, but they do have to have self-motivation and the desire to succeed because they make their own schedules and work from home, she added.
“That’s such a huge part of the draw of Moms Making Six Figures — the team,” Martin said. “There’s a lot of other women who want what you want. They’re willing to work for it and they’re willing to work together for it.”
Wanting to expand the team at home and abroad, Bartolotta and her team members encourage interested women to contact the company by filling out a form on the website at www.momsmakingsixfigures.com/contact.
“I was really skeptical two years ago. If I would have let skepticism get the best of me, then I probably never would have called,” Becker said. “It’s a no-obligation phone call. It could be the best phone call you’ll ever make.”
