Meet Erica Tate of Towson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Erica Tate.

Hi Erica, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I am a momfluencer and content creator, along with my husband. Our TikTok @Mrandmrsgrit and Instagram @Ladygrit_ and @_grittz have garnered more than 300K supporters. Our page often features our children, and we make humorous/ lifestyle content surrounding our experiences. The journey started in 2020 when I was laid off from my corporate job. I was on maternity leave when I got laid off and was devastated. We were in the middle of a pandemic, I lost my job, and I had this newborn baby to take care of along with my 2 older children that were remote learning. It was a bit more than I bargained for, and I had a lot more spare time, so I started posting more on Instagram and created a TikTok. My husband and I posted regularly about marriage, parenting, and being young parents. Our videos began to go viral; one was even shared on Alicia Keys’ Instagram. We started collaborating with brands in the form of sponsorships. We’ve worked with many businesses, from The Gaylord National resort to Walmart and Disney World. I’ve been able to make a living as a content creator, and I couldn’t be any more grateful because I’m able to spend more time doing what I love most, which is being a mother and wife. A miserable circumstance quickly became an opportunity of a lifetime.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It was a bit of an adjustment going from the corporate world to being self-employed. Sticking to a set schedule daily, staying disciplined, and being present as a mom while juggling a social media business is not easy. I have lots of support from my husband Lemaur, family, and friends, so I am thankful for them.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a content creator and momfluencer; I run @Mrandmrsgrit on TikTok and @Ladygrit_ on Instagram; I post regularly about my experiences as a mother and a wife. I am most proud of my ability to bring relatable content to my audience. I want my supporters to know that there is a community of people living similar experiences, and we can share those experiences as we try to navigate motherhood and marriage. I think what sets me apart is my authenticity. When you’re on my page, you’ll get the real me; not a caricature of me but the unfiltered and raw Erica. I love what I do because I’ve met some amazing like-minded people.
