About Erin Al-Mehairi

I am a thirty-something mother of three, who is a seasoned public relations/communications/marketing professional. After over a decade in the corporate/non-profit rat race, I opened my own public relations/writing business about a year and a half ago called Addison’s Compass Public Relations (www.addisonscompass.com). I did this to work from home and I enjoy spending more time with my children. I believe in balancing work with the needs of growing my children to be the best people they can be. A lot of soul reflecting during the past year has really brought out my love of photography. I’ve always photographed events and stills for marketing material and billboards, but I found I truly have a love for photographing one of my all time favorite things, nature and the outdoors. Now I am very happy to “shop” for my perfect photo and find those little wonderful shots that sometimes get lost in the hustle and bustle of life. God’s beauty is certainly all around us if we just take the time to look. I enjoy spending time outdoors with my children and taking photographs. I sell my fine art photography also either through direct contact or at http://breathebeautyartandphotography.artfire.com. I sell my photos for home decor, stationary, and even for stock photos.

I am a woman who believes in the POWER of women. I believe it is about time for women to be paid the same as men and for them be respected just as equally. I love bold colors, especially red, yellow, and orange. My favorite flowers are daffodils and red poppies. I love chocolate and pretzels. I am a writer and love to read. I enjoy sci-fi shows and snacking (big smile). Because of my love of food, and living off the land that God gave to us, I also enjoy baking very much, especially during the fall and winter months.  My better half, Tim, also enjoys eating my baking! He feels it fuels him to continue writing his fiction novels and working with me in our public relations business.  He has a blog too and you’ll be able to find some of the beginning chapters of his wonderful new thriller novel there (www.tbusbey.wordpress.com).

    Awesome for you. What did it take to get started? Although I am a stay at home mom and see my kids a lot. I would love to find work I have a passion for and work from home. Childcare brings in money, but I want to be and do more. Any advise? I didn’t know you write. That is great. I enjoy writing and would love to publish a book or more someday. Making the time and silence is what I need to do. Proud of what you have and are accomplishing in your life.

    • Thanks Wendy! I will send you an e-mail! Just remember in the meantime that you can do anything you want to do! Don’t let doubts, uncertainty, or the trials of everyday life hold you back from trying. It is very hard to balance a family. I have a lot of support in Tim and it truly makes a difference now in my life. I don’t want to mislead, it isn’t always easy or profitable, but we feel we are on God’s path and He will continue to show us the way to success in order to assist our family in becoming a success. 🙂
