The Innocuous Word That Can Damage Your Relationships

How I Got My Job At YMC

It Started With A Glass Of Wine

by: Sharon DeVellis

I'm often asked how I got my start at YMC. I mean, how does one get a job working with Erica Ehm when one doesn't even know who Erica Ehm is or that she runs a website or that you even want a job?



The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

Sharon has been with YMC since the very beginning and is now the Senior Writer where she maintains the YMC voice which sounds very similar to the voice in her head. It seems being crazy has finally paid off.

She can't teach you how to keep your house clean while balancing a job and motherhood but if you're a mom who's struggling to figure it out, you will probably relate, so welcome.

You can follow Sharon on Twitter: @SharonDV No seriously do it. She's funny on Twitter. Sometimes.
