About Holly Homer
I am Holly. I am the mom of three boys. Three very active boys. I live with my husband and kids in the suburbs of Dallas, Texas.
I write Kids Activities Blog - http://kidsactivitiesblog.com & run the Quirky Momma FB page - http://facebook.com/quirkymomma about fun things to do with kids. My philosophy is that there is no need to spend money on kids crafts and activities when there are perfectly entertaining things to be made from the kitchen junk drawer.
Early on in my parenting journey, I realized that kid energy can turn to trouble when not exhausted in a constructive manner! I pulled from my experience as a Physical Therapist to find, create and direct ways to actively wear out my boys while having fun.
Play is an important part of our lives. Favorite family time activities are a trip to grandma & grandpa's house to visit the tree house and zipline, a day on the slopes skiing together, attending a Ranger game or a competitive evening of board games.
LIfe has been full of adventure so far, I can't wait to see what happens next...

Learn how these author-entrepreneur Moms hit a wall, pivoted, built even stronger businesses, and now each has a Million Dollar Story making a difference and changing their children’s lives. Best of all, they’ll share with you secrets of building wildly successful businesses while raising entrepreneurial kids; businesses like real estate investing, buying and flipping real estate, network marketing, blogging, finance, eCommerce, Fulfillment By Amazon and more!

You’ll hear from Chimene Van Gundy who endured her family’s participation in a church cult and later the trauma of being sold into sexual slavery by an abusive foster family. She flipped that story by flipping mobile homes, clearing the $1Million mark in just 21 days. She’s the mother of five kids, has fostered over 60 children, donated thousands to rescue children, and is on her way to the $25Million mark. Her daughter, Bella, is a survivor and successful entrepreneur in her own right, sharing her story to help and inspire others. And you’ll hear from Alison J Prince, mom to four kids, formerly a junior high school science teacher, who went on to become owner of not one, but four multi-million dollar businesses. One of her kids, Makayla, tells her story of building her own business and speaking from stage to a crowd of thousands before her 18th birthday! But … no more spoilers! You’ll have to read Million Dollar Moms so you, too, can build businesses while raising highly successful kids!
“What I love about the collection of stories is that each of these brave women share how they were just like us, struggling to make ends meet, doubting their life choices and having to depend on their own determination to change their fate. Hearing just one of those inspiring stories gave me enough insight and inspiration to catapult my business into six-figures. I’m beyond grateful for the growth in my life as a result of the relationships with the women in this book. They bravely reveal personal and traumatic experiences making it obvious that “they get you.” They honestly want to see you succeed. They guide you without patronizing you. They know what you’re capable of achieving and clearly show you the path. Carla White, CEO of Hiro.FM and Host of Radical Shift podcast.
