Do any of the moms on here have their own business?

I want to know if Circle of Moms should have a Circle of Moms Mall. This would be a place where mom-owned businesses could post their products, so that we can support each other. Does this sound like a good idea?

If you don't have your own business, would you want to buy a product from a mom-owned business?

Thanks!

Martha

Great idea, I'm a Realtor and a mother of two girls and believe me it gets difficult juggling their schedule and working especially in this market.

I too have my own business. But I would love to help support other moms and their businesses as well. How would we set something up? Would it be a facebook group or a Circle of Moms group?

I also sell Avon (in west central WI) and would love to broaden MY customer base. I believe there are "restrictions" on how we advertise our business, however. Is anyone looking into that? Seems there's always particulars to drudge through for any good idea! I'd like to know more.

Great Idea! Having the opportunity to share what tactics have worked or not worked would be potentially helpful to all who have (or are considering having) a business!

I also recently started a networking group called Minnesota Moms in Business. In addition to monthly networking meetings, I promote 3 vendor fairs each year to draw awareness to women owned businesses. www.mnmomsinbusiness.com or www.mnvendorfairs.com

I have a website www.onegirlscloset.com that is a women's resource site. I also offer free advertising for women owned businesses and a section for business opportunities where you can list the details of your business for others looking to join a company. The site is totally free and the business directory is listed by state so you can look for women owned businesses in your area.

I think this is a great idea!



After working for other firms, I have recently gone out on my own as an independant Interior Design Consultant.



(check out the beginnings of my website...http://justjenna.foliosnap.com)



As an interior design consultant and would love to offer advice for mother's of children of all ages, including new-moms-be and moms of children from birth to college age.



This Circle of Mom's Mall would be a great place to not only promote my business, but also help other design oriented moms to collaborate.



I look forward to seeing this come to fruition.



Best of luck to all.



Jenna



ps...for any moms out there who are considering creating there own website, I found a very user friendly place to do it...check it out for yourself by clicking the following link:

This is a great idea!  I am a stay at home mom and a Longaberger Consultant.  Longaberger allows me to make my own schedule so that I can be with my kids.  I think this would be a great networking tool for moms who want to be with their children, but who would also like to earn their own income also.  Feel free to take a look at my website:  www.longaberger.com/lanastitzel

Great Idea, I like the Idea of a mall, and a support group. I am a business owner, It is a Gourmet Coffee Shop & DVD Rental Store, we also have an array of electronics, and Childrens Toys (Melissa & Doug toys are are new addition, and they go like hot cakes). We have done a little online selling, but aren't very regular about it. I work so much I have a hard time managing my household, and would love to have some support, and ideas to make my life easier. My business is currently for sale, and have a few interested buyers, I would like to find something to do from home, so if anyone has some good Ideas for me I would love to hear them.I will look forward to a support group

Love this idea! Does anyone know if this will actually happen?

I own a graphic design/ vinyl/ scrapbook company. I design custom vinyl for walls, cars, and scrapbooks! Since I do graphic design I can cut anything out w/ my vinyl machine. I can even make t-shirts with my machine too! Check out my site at: www.aperfectmemory.com If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know. I will do custom stuff at a very low price and my prices are usually lower than other vinyl shops. Thanks for reading!
