Erin: Beauty Rep & Substitute Teacher

Name: Erin Murphy

Age: 31

City: Greenville, South Carolina

Main Hustle: Mama to an almost two year old, Mae!

I also work from home providing marketing work to a local insurance agent as well as to Read GA Family Law (a company started by my dad to provide up-to-date cases to family law attorneys in Georgia).

Side Hustle: I sell Lipsense products and substitute at Mae’s school from time to time!

Do you have a website, store, or social media presence?: Interested in purchasing Lipsense products? DM me on Instagram, eringmurphy. I’d love for you to try it – it’s fantastic!

How did you get started?: Honestly. I think it was a God thing. I went back to work full time after I had Mae and after being there for a few months, I knew I needed a change. At the same time, the opportunities with both the insurance agent and Read GA Family Law came up and have given me the opportunity to have the flexibility I needed but also work and contribute. I started selling Lipsense recently because I fell in love with their products. As a mama on the go, I needed something that would stay on all day and this product does. It’s amazing!

When/where do you work on your Side Hustle?: All from home! I schedule my day around Mae and when she’s in school, so I work really anytime I have free time…usually during nap!

What are the challenges of your Side Hustle?: See above – I work from home! While the benefits most definitely outweigh the challenges, it can be difficult to get done what I need to get done while taking care of Mae. She’s an active toddler for sure!

What are the rewards of your Side Hustle?: The ability to provide for my family, have flexibility during the day, spend quality time with Mae, but also contribute and do what I love to do. It truly has been such a blessing!

Who is your greatest supporter?: Most definitely my husband, Hunter.

Who/what is your greatest source of inspiration?: No doubt my mom. She’s the biggest hustler I know—I don’t think she sits down until she goes to bed at night, and I definitely got that from her.

What is your dream for your Side Hustle?: To empower other mamas to do the same and do what they love! It certainly took a leap of faith to leave my secure, full-time job to go part-time and from home with multiple side hustles, but it has been the best decision for me and for our family. I knew I wasn’t meant to stay at home full-time, nor could we do that financially, but I also knew I wanted to be able to take Mae to the zoo or the doctor without having to ask permission, so I made that happen. I want all mamas to fulfill their passion, whether that be in an office from 9-5, home all day with their precious little ones, or part-time!

Do you have any advice for others working on a Side Hustle?:

You can do it! I was super nervous to work while having a baby at home, but it can be done! The best advice: schedule your time and stick to it. Get up early, make use of the time they are at school or nap…it can be done!
