If this is your first time hearing my name, then welcome to my site. Maybe you’ve just stumbled upon my name, Malene – which is rather common in Denmark by the way – or maybe you’ve read one of my books. Either way, welcome to my world. If you want to know more about me, you can click here. Everything in this post may make much more sense after reading through that.
But if you’ve followed me for a few years, you may be wondering where the heck I have been. Yes, I was the person who wrote lots of books between the years 2012 and 2015. I’m also the person who had the podcast, “The Blogging Entrepreneur,” which was later called “Lessons From An Entrepreneur.”
After 65 episodes I pulled the plug. Why? Well, as it turns out, there were lots of reasons. For one, my heart wasn’t in it anymore. It was hard for me to stay motivated to share everything I had learned over my 10 years as a blogging entrepreneur. Second, I was about to make some major changes in my personal, including a move that would require me to pack up my life. And third, we were starting a family. We were trying to conceive and my heart was in that journey.
On the outside, it may have looked like I pulled the plug. “Where the heck did Malene go?”
The website was down. The podcast was gone. In fact, the website went through several transformations. Throughout the past three years, I’ve been all about mommyhood – with less than a year with the baby inside of me and almost two on the outside. But it hasn’t all been mommyhood.
In fact, just like earlier in my career, I’ve focused a lot on the backend of my business Before I started speaking out about entrepreneurship, I was totally comfortable working behind the scenes. I was fine with the idea of not putting myself out there. I feel that’s where I’m comfortable. So now, I’m back to being a business author with plenty of new books on the schedule.
And hopefully another baby in the next few years. I think it’s time to prove that women can have it all.
