Angela Gange joined as a partner in Moms Making Six Figures, founded in 2009. She and the company have continued to build supportive connections between women ever since. “We all have really different backgrounds, but we all really wanted to have flexibility around our families,” Angie said of the group, noting that members come from a wide variety of educational and professional backgrounds. “We really didn’t know when we started the company that we would be as successful as we are today. We just had an idea that there would be a lot of other women who were like us.”
Moms Making Six Figures represents a U.S.-based manufacturer. The marketing company is based in San Diego, but a number of the nearly 90 moms live in Orange County, the Bay Area, Nevada, Arizona, Chicago, and New York. Wherever they live, they’re able to replace or supplement their income while staying at home on their own schedules. About half of the members work at least 25 hours a week. Rather than a background in marketing, members need to be self-motivated to work hard and write their own success stories.
When Angie joined the business, her sons were 17, 13 and 11. She had worked in the mortgage banking industry, but she knew there had to be a way to support her family without working late and traveling away from her sons. “The corporate environment just isn’t very accommodating to moms,” said Angie. “They say that they are, but when push comes to shove, they’re not.”
She found her new path with Moms Making Six Figures. “There are so many moms like me,” said Angie. “Most of us need a dual income, especially in California. But when you’re a mom, you have kids, and you have all the responsibilities and activities that children have, it’s difficult trying to figure out a way to have a career and balance everything.” Now that Angie’s sons are grown and successful, happy young men, she is committed to helping other moms have the same success she had, owning her own business, and being a “total stay at home mom”!
