Hi and welcome to my site! My name is Bianca, I lived in Astoria QNS with my teenage son Matteo , two shih-tzus named Booboo and Geppetto and our pet tortoise Sita.
My journey to "freelancehood" started in January 2003. I just upgraded my clamshell lime green iBook to a brandnew Powerbook G4 12 inch model. This was when my passion started for technology.
After my son was born in 2003 I was faced with the reality that it is impossible as young single mom to support myself and my family living in NYC working on a low income job. I dropped out of college when I became pregnant so there was no career for me to go back to either. I knew I had to be creative. A friend of mine wanted to help and hired me as a rental agent for his families properties in NYC. It was a pretty decent gig, I popped my son in a baby carrier and held weekly open houses for prospective tenants. I also designed my first website ever for this company.
In 2005 I opened my first online store selling cloth diapers and baby carriers that transformed into a physical retail location two years later. For 7 years I live and breathed retail but I realized I am not able to do this the rest of my life. I switched my gear, closed my retail location and focus on babywearing consultation and business coaching focusing on women that work with new and expectant families. ( Doulas, Babywearing Consultants, Childbirth educators, lactation professionals etc.
