What advice would you give a mom who wants to be a mompreneur?
Follow your heart! If you believe in your products, and love what you do, it will show and people will be naturally attracted to your items. If you are going to sell your products online, take excellent photos with natural light. Write clear, accurate descriptions and have fun being creative. Don't let work take over all your personal time...when you work at home it can be tough to separate the two. It's important to have time that is just for your family.
What tips do you have for connecting with other mom bloggers?
Reach out to bloggers that you like by commenting on their blogs. Offer to do a guest post exchange if you feel like your style is a good fit for their blog. Of course, social media is a great way to connect as well!
How do you balance being a mom and and an entrepreneur?
It can be very tough! I try to have designated working hours...a few afternoons a week, and Saturday mornings are times when I have my husband watch the boys while I catch up. Of course it isn't always easy to keep things in balance. At Christmastime, and during other peak shopping seasons, I am busier, and we wind up ordering takeout, using paper plates, etc. Whatever it takes to get through the craziness in one piece. Family comes first, so if my baby needs me all day because he's teething, than that's what I do that day, nurse and hold my baby. I can catch up another time.
