This week’s Mom on a Mission is Kristin Helms! Kristin Helms graduated from San Diego State University with a Communication, Marketing degree and held several positions in marketing, public relations and events before leaving the “corporate world” to stay home with her baby girl, Blake, born in November 2013. She just launched a premiere online magazine for modern day women called Tribe Magazine. When not editing articles for Tribe, Kristin can be found running around San Diego with her husband, daughter, and golden retriever, Tucker – usually eating, drinking, or playing by the beach.
In her own words:
My Mission: Along with my two sisters/business partners, I just launched Tribe Magazine, an online magazine for the modern day woman. Tribe’s slogan is “everything woman” and that’s exactly what we provide – light-hearted, entertaining articles that would spark the interest in almost every woman. We cover health & fitness, travel & adventure, motherhood, food and beverage, fashion and lifestyle articles.
My sisters and I have always had huge imaginations and entrepreneurial aspirations. When we recently found ourselves all living in the same city together (for the first time in 12 years), we thought – let’s create something amazing together that fuses all of our different interests into one entertaining site. Thus, Tribe Magazine was born. It’s awesome, because you sort of see each of our different personalities shine through in every one of our articles.
Inspirations: I’m inspired by creativity of all forms – art, writing, graphic design, interior design, music, and cinematography. I’m also inspired daily by moms in general. Whether they’re stay at home moms, working moms, entrepreneurial moms – these amazing, strong women lead households, raise tiny humans and are largely responsible for our next generation – now that’s something special.
Parenting Tips: Be present. I’m coming up on my one year anniversary of being a mom and, while I’m no expert, I’ve realized that time flies when you have children. I feel like I blinked and now Blake is almost one year old! Just enjoy every moment. And when you’re with your baby or kids, just be present – take it all in – because the moment is fleeting and time is precious.
