Meet Jacqueline Pinchuk of Mommy Sync

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jacqueline Pinchuk.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for almost a year and a half, and I felt like something was missing. I loved my children, and I knew I wanted to be home; however, I am also an incredibly driven and ambitious person who enjoys the accomplishments and challenges of traditional work. In addition to this, I felt isolated and alone.

Being a stay-at-home mom with very young children can make it difficult to interact with peers for logistical reasons, like the transportation of three children, or simple sheer exhaustion. I was so tired, the idea of leaving my house was at times overwhelming and even crippling.

Since I was home, without an income, my husband and I thought it would be the perfect time for me to attempt a dream I had always desired. I have always wanted to be a writer, but with three under three, I wasn’t in a great position to start writing my novels. I felt like I could commit to a blog post though.

My husband has experience with digital marketing and helped me launch my blog. Not only did this solidify that writing is one of my greatest passions, but it also gave me an outlet for all of my mommy joys and woes.

The sleeplessness, the frustration, the loneliness, but also, the milestones, triumphs, and excitement. It helped create this support network of women who have been invaluable to me while I raise my children at home.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
I think I’m in a bumpy part right now actually. I have been very ill for weeks, and we have several important weddings this year, which means that I have not had very much time for myself. My writing is an integral part of my self-care, but life can veer us off course so easily.

There has been a terrible virus going around that my family just can’t shake, and when you feel like death, it can be hard to choose writing over sleep, especially when my family has so many needs. I think I am finally seeing the end of this sickness, and I look forward to posting my articles and videos more frequently.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Mommy Sync – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I have a mommy blog that talks about the good and the bad of parenting. I try to be as transparent as possible because I believe we connect through honesty. I’m not about presenting perfection. That is counterproductive. I want to be authentic.

Life is wonderful and terrible and sometimes boring. I tell it all, usually from a humorous perspective. I have a really difficult time with the façade of social media. I’ve found that it usually makes me feel poorly about myself, instead of better.

I use my blog to show every side of motherhood, and my goal is to uplift women and to help them feel less alone.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I would love to become an established author. I have a parenting book outlined, and I’ve written a romance novel. Now I’m working my way towards publication.

Once my children are older, I would be interested in motivational speaking. Improving body-image and self-love are important topics to me. I’ve found these are even more important in motherhood as our bodies change and we shape the self-esteem of our children.

When I worked as a therapist, before I became a stay-at-home mom, I found feelings of inadequacy and self-hatred to be prevalent in most people. I love being able to help others see themselves differently and with a little more love.
