You Have a Message -

We have a place to share it!

We truly believe that no two mama’s have the same exact story, so we want to make sure our readers get a wide range of perspectives and examples when they read our content! Because of that, we’re always on the lookout for driven mamas who have a story that our readers need to see. 

Even if you don’t consider yourself a “writer”, that’s okay. If you have something that’s been on your heart or a message you think would help other moms live their healthiest, happiest, and most purpose-driven life, then we would love to have you submit your pitch anyway! If your content is selected, we’ll give it an extra run through to make sure it’s good to go. 

(Note: If you’d rather stay anonymous, just let us know and we’ll make sure your name is left out.)

 

The Driven mama Mission

Our readers are looking for inspiration to eat healthier, permission to make themselves a priority, and ideas for fitting self-care into a busy week.

We empower our readers to take full ownership of their health, well-being, & life and encourage all of our guest posters to reflect that same spirit of autonomy. (This is a shame-free and judgement-free zone through and through!)

Our mission is to make this the only place driven mamas (like you!) need to go to find all the information they need to be your healthiest, happiest & most fulfilled mama self, and we want you to be part of the movement! 

What We Look For -

Our Mamas Want to Read About...

Unique and original content that helps mamas live their healthiest, happiest, and most purpose-driven life. 

Narratives are great, as long as they have an empowering or relatable message for our readers. 

Things we love: 

  • Your life hacks on surviving mom life. 
  • Your recent experience with a new kind of yoga, paddle-boarding pilates, or blind-folded cooking class you just took. (aka, a unique and interesting experience you had!)
  • Your best tips for thriving in your career, raising kiddos, and taking on that side-biz, all while taking care of your own wellness. 
  • Evidence-based “How to’s” that you’d love to share (How to manage stress, how to fall asleep faster,  etc.)
  • Stories that will make our mamas laugh, cry (happy tears!), and have to tell all their friends! 
Also be sure to include: 
  • Credible sources for any facts or information you’re sharing. (Link it within the post as well as noting sources at the bottom)
  • Links to your website (please keep the amount of links within the post reasonable)
  • Your bio and head shot so you can brag all about your masterpiece to friends, family, and social media! 
Finally, it’s important that your content is fresh and unique for our readers, so be sure that it’s never been published anywhere on the internet,  include on your own blog. However, once the post is published, it’s a great idea to write a short blog of your own letting all your readers know you’re a guest and link to it! 

What's not our style -

Our Mamas Would Rather Skip...

Mom-shaming, judgement, negativity, advertising or self-promotion of any kind (you’ll get the ability to submit a bio with your content which can include a link to your blog or site), business slamming, overly religious or political viewpoints, or the same old, same old.

Recharging by Unplugging: 5 Ways to Realign Your Inner Balance

Today’s world is loud, fast and frantic. As a full-time working mom with three under age four, I’m no stranger to chaos. Every day is a whirlwind. I go-go-go nonstop before crashing in front of the TV and then collapsing into bed, too exhausted to clean up the cyclone that’s torn through the living room, much less put my thoughts in order. My life is cluttered: not just physically, but mentally, too.  During these busy days, it’s easy to feel out of balance and out of touch with ourselves. And one big culprit that feeds the disconnection? Phones. I’ll be

How fitness helped me reconnect to myself after kids

Being a mom is one of the most difficult, yet most fulfilling and rewarding roles we moms have. Even though it comes with many challenges, can be incredibly hard, and definitely exhausting at times, I know I wouldn’t trade it for anything, as I’m sure you wouldn’t either.  I love my children with all my heart and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel like I lost myself a few years after becoming a mother. In fact, there was a time in my life that I didn’t even want to have kids, because I was afraid of what

From One Grieving Mom to Target: I Need Your Help

I’ve got a bone to pick with Target:  why is it that there is a whole section of the store dedicated to birth and babies, and not even an aisle dedicated to death and grieving?  Stick with me here a minute, I’ll explain. As a full-time working, married, 36 year old, mom of two, I am the demographic for retailers.  I have no time, I have money, and I have hungry kids at home waiting for dinner.  Target shopping is serious business for me. If you can go into a Target and spend less than $100 consider yourself a unicorn,

How to Survive When You Don’t Feel Balanced

There is no such thing as balance! I’ve spent nearly a decade studying to be a chiropractor, been married for 9 years, have been a mother for 8 years – and the one thing I’ve learned – there is NEVER a balance. Let me elaborate –  I’m a doer, right?  So, that means I’m always shuffling and throwing too much on my plate.  I’ve learned as I’ve gotten older (and wiser!) that I can’t constantly be running, but I’ve also learned that nothing every officially slows down either.  Everyday I wake up with a plan, and every day my plan

Mama, It’s Okay to Ask for Help – Even When You Think You Can “Tough It Out”

Before I get into my story, there’s a message I need you to hear – Trust YOU, You matter! Great Expectations of a New Mom During my pregnancy, I always knew I would breastfeed my baby.  I thought it would be a piece of cake…. After having my daughter, everything was great; she took to the boob right away, my milk came in, I was in heaven bonding with my sweet girl. A couple weeks into our new journey, I started noticing my nipple was hurting when she was nursing and it was STARK WHITE when letting go.  Can you
