Hello! My name is Scarlett, and I am a work-at-home-mom, freelance writer, designer, and sometime makeup artist based in White Rock, BC. On this blog, you will find musings for moms doing side hustles like direct sales, parenting tips, some mom-hacks and beauty and style tips curated for moms.

That Mom Hustle has grown out of many incarnations of this blog, which I originally started in 2010 to feature my makeup work. I started writing about direct sales in 2014, after I had spent 5 years in the industry with a team of over 150 women with cumulative sales of over 1 million.

Blogging took over as my side hustle, as I have two active-dancing teenage girls and a busy spouse, and working flexibly was my goal. I’ve freelanced doing social media management, but continued to write and now copywrite, write creatively and blog for other businesses.

I’m still figuring out balancing the side hustle with family – but as my tagline says: Family First, Hustle on the Side.

I am using my hard-earned knowledge from a variety of side hustles – a makeup business, a failed retail store, a thriving direct sales business and now writing for others – to help YOU along your journey.
