About The Mom Writes

beautiful family collage.jpg. Hello there!! Welcome to my little online spot in the sun where I chat about working from home, being productive, organizing my space, living intentionally and life with my family.

My name is Prerna {pronounced prayer-na} and it means Inspiration in Hindi. I live in India and am passionate about helping moms worldwide, streamline their lives and get more done..with less.  Less time, less effort and less money.

Why The Mom Writes

Becoming a mom changed everything for me. Before my daughter, Manini was born, I was powering through the corporate ladder working as a Communication Skills trainer with companies like, American Express and Dell. When I conceived, I knew that I wanted to be home with my daughter. I knew that I didn’t want to miss milestones.

What I didn’t know was what I’d do when I wasn’t breastfeeding or changing cloth diapers. What would I do when I need an outlet to share how sleep-deprived or lonely I felt? And that led to the birth of The Mom Writes. It is just that.

A mom writing about her life as a mom trying to juggle it all with intention, peace and productivity. I started The Mom Writes as a place to share my views, ideas and tips on life as a mom, wife, writer and woman and I am happy to say that it has evolved into exactly that and so much more.

A Peek Into My Life

family photo Pull up a chair and pour yourself some coffee, this is a long chat.

I’m married to Mayank and blessed to be working with him in our business, Social Media Direct. Mayank and I met at work in American Express and started dating.

He left India to do his MBA from Cardiff in U.K and when he returned in 2005, we got married. Manini was born in March of 2008. She’s filled our life with endless laughter, happiness and questions.

I like reading, both print and digital books. I am a solver of crosswords and a baker of cookies. I love deadlines and schedules and yes, I know that makes me sound very boring but really am not.:)

I am a traveler at heart and while we currently call Gurgaon our home, we love the idea of a life in a slower place. We travel across India and prefer road trips to flying. I dislike the Indian summer and will take all-year winter any day over it.

When I’m not playing Candy Land with Manini, I can be found brainstorming content strategy and social media solutions for our clients with Mayank. Read more about what we do here.
