I am the founder of Marilyn & More , a blog about my adventures as a mom, entrepreneur and influencer. I also work as the Booking Coordinator at Outloud Marketing (love it!), and as a daily live broadcast host on the app Bigo Live where I do anything from just talking, to cooking or even DIYs all while getting paid and interacting with people all over the world. I’m going on my 6th-month broadcasting now and have over 100k followers now! I also run my small business called The Party Shack where I rent things out for parties such as tables, chairs, bounce house, etc. I’m working on a 2nd business now but it’s still in the early process!
Although I’ve only been here 3 1⁄2 years, Houston has fully embraced me and welcomed me as their own. I stay pretty busy and booked for shows!
People I’ve met are willing to help and give me advice. I find that I make great connections with people easily and the community is so supportive!
Houstonians are very warm, kind and genuine people. If you are nice to them, they will be 10 times nicer to you. They inspire me in the way they work so hard to care for their loved ones. Sometimes it gets to a point where they get exhausted and desperate for help, and you have to tell them, “that’s normal.” They come to us and we tell them, “That’s what we’re here for. Let us help you. We got your back.”
“I have been completely amazed and inspired by the people we have met since starting Back After Baby. They mostly have been women and moms, who want to help other women, which is truly encouraging and impactful to our mission. The support has been incredible; moms, doctors, friends, and family learning and sharing about what we do have been the gas in our tank for growing and changing women’s lives!”
“Houston is an amazing place to start a business. The people are so friendly, and Houstonians are so ready to help each other. I love the naturally encouraging and supportive nature of this town. I’ve lived here for almost 20 years, and have raised my children here, and it’s all those people I’ve met along the way that have pushed me along in our business.”
