‘Moms Making Six Figures’ helps moms stay at home while still having careers
Angie Gange had a successful career in mortgage banking. Then the recession hit.
With her oldest son soon entering college, the Carmel Valley mother of three began looking for a new job.
“I needed to replace my income, but I also needed to have control over my time,” recalled Gange, adding that her husband, Paul, travels a lot on business. “Although our boys are not little ones anymore, I didn’t want to give up being available for them.”
That’s when Gange’s friend introduced her to Moms Making Six Figures, a San Diego-based marketing company that allows women to stay at home and either replace or supplement their income. She started with the company in 2011.
“It’s probably the best decision I ever made,” Gange said.
When Gange became part of the Moms Making Six Figures team, her sons were 17, 14 and 11. At the time, all three of her boys played baseball. She recalled attending more than 100 baseball games in her first five months with the company.
“Our kids come first for us,” Gange said. “Moms Making Six Figures has helped me remain a stay-at-home-mom while still making a six-figure income.”
Local resident Heidi Bartolotta founded Moms Making Six Figures with two other women in December 2009.
For 12 years, Bartolotta had worked as a pharmaceutical sales representative. But after having two daughters, she no longer wanted to work late and travel. She wanted to be home.
To stay at home and also have a career, Bartolotta launched the company, which represents a U.S.-based manufacturer. Since then, the marketing company has grown to nearly 400 team members across the country and around the world, including more than 100 team members in San Diego. About a third are working full time.
Team members come from different backgrounds, education levels, work experience and locations.
“It’s really rewarding,” said Bartolotta, whose daughters are now 8 and 10 years old. “It’s all women who have been able to control their lives.”
Today, Gange’s oldest son Charlie is a senior at San Diego State University. Her younger two boys, Christian and Scotty, attend Torrey Pines High School, where they both play football.
“Moms Making Six Figures has been a blessing for me because I really do get to be a mom first,” said Gange, who has a bachelor’s degree in business. “But I’m an entrepreneur by nature, so I feel really lucky that I have found something where I can put my family first, have my own business and get to work with a team of bright and supportive women.”
Looking to expand her team at home and abroad, Bartolotta encourages interested women to contact her by filling out a form on the company’s website at www.momsmakingsixfigures.com/contact.
“I want women to realize there is an option,” Bartolotta said.
