meet Emily

Emily Cretella is a mama, content creator + creative entrepreneur who turned her side-hustle into her full-time business on her daughter’s first birthday. As the founder and editor of MotherHustle, Emily hopes to inspire other creative mamas to make the leap (or nail the landing!) from business-dreaming to full-time boss mode. When she’s not mother hustling, she’s helping clients create and share stories at Cursive Content Marketing.

We are creative mompreneurs.

We are crafting careers while cradling children.

We are exploring deep-rooted passions while redefining personal success.

We are getting our hands dirty, playing hard, and thinking big.

We are stepping out from behind the desk and into a spotlight of our own creation.

We are hustlers.

We are making it work with the time and energy we have, flexing our ambition to fit in the spaces left by nap time and school drop-off and sports sidelines.

We are careful with our moments, guardians of our creativity, and ever-aware of our legacy.

We are striving for more because we deserve it — and our families deserve to see it, to be a part of it.

We are making things happen, collecting little wins for momentous change.

We are in it together.

We are a community that believes creativity and self-expression and success matter, not in spite of our motherhood but because of it.

We are bonded by the desire to expand, to learn, to make, to be heard.

We are not alone.

We are deep in the MotherHustle. And we are here to enjoy it.
