I'm Alyice (uh-lease) Edrich and I am a dabbler at heart. But don't let the idea of dabbling fool you! I am a firm believer in the powers of dabbling as a way to finding our unique purpose in life. I believe that taking the time to try new things, to experience new adventures, and to explore new possibilities allows us the opportunity to not only change our own lives, but impact the lives around us—in a very positive and fulfilling way.
I currently make my home in Sioux Falls, South Dakota where I enjoy writing, making art, and spending time with my loved ones.
From 2000 to 2015, I ran a homebased freelance business with an award-winning online magazine for BUSY parents (known as The Dabbling Mum) while living my dream of being the quintessential housewife/stay-at-home mom.
The magazine was a place of refuge for BUSY moms who wanted to find their place in the world without losing sight of what really mattered to them—their families. It was also a place where moms could feel comfortable with the choices they made, and the changes they wanted to make, and not feel guilty because they were not living up to someone else's ideals.
After 13 years of running the magazine, I closed it and the newsletters down and took a much needed break from the world of small business. Though I kept the website online, and picked up a few odd jobs from time to time, I didn't devote much time to running the business.
In fact, I spent my days working a part-time job. (Yeah, I couldn't believe it either!) It was refreshing to wake up each morning and not have to worry about where the next paycheck was coming from—and, I was surprisingly happy!
By 2015, I realized that I no longer wanted to run a homebased business and longed to work for a company that allowed me the opportunity to utilize all the talents and skills I learned over the years... so I closed the business for good and went in search of a full-time job..
While I am very happy where I am at (couldn't find a better group of co-workers and the work is enjoyable), I will never miss the opportunity to improve my station in life with the right job opportunity.
