From day one, I have followed three rules to help shape everything I do.
1. If you do only one thing, take the time to plan. It’s that important.
2. Always treat others--whether customers, employees, vendors, partners, or
visitors--with respect and professionalism.
3. Integrate list-building into all of your marketing strategies. Don’t miss the
opportunity to capture data from everyone who engages with your business.

As CEO of your home and business, you
have plenty on your plate. My advice, busy
mompreneur, is to keep your business
simple. Control the volume of information,
commitments, and initiatives that come
into your business. Limiting the flow of
input allows you to magnify the output to
grow quickly. By applying the same strategy
to your home, you’ll be amazed at how
fulfilling it is to avoid overwhelm.

My advice? Prove them wrong. You know who I am talking about.
Those people who say, "You are doing what?" "Oh, that will never
work." "You don't have time to do that." "You'll never succeed."
Sometimes these people are your closest friends, your family, people
you expect to be behind you no matter what. Well guess what?
It's time for you to prove them wrong!
Take that negative energy being thrown at you and turn it into
something positive. Use it as motivation to push you to succeed.
Sometimes the best feeling is being able to say, "HA! I did it!" Have
faith in yourself. Don't let those negative thoughts get into your head.
Sure you will have bad days. No business is perfect 100% of the time.
But during those down times, you have to remind yourself why you are
doing this. Remain positive and say to yourself, "I WILL be successful."
Believe it or not, there is great power in positive thinking. Remain
positive, and prove those naysayers wrong.

Believe in yourself. I know it sounds trite. Here's the
thing. So many of us women doubt ourselves. We
second guess our skills. We wonder whether or not we
can compete. We think we're too young or too old. We
become our own worst enemies. There is so much
specific business advice worth following; but until we
believe in ourselves, none of it will make a difference.

My best advice to mom
entrepreneurs is to make sure you
are able to concisely and
confidently tell others exactly
what it is you do and how it
benefits them.

As a mother and entrepreneur, as well as a high
profile mother, the best advice I can tell you is
to remember that your children are growing up
and they need your undivided attention at
times . Although I have been a business women
and entrepreneur for most of their lives, I have
seen them go through the junior high years,
high school years and now the college years.
Never forget your family, success is wonderful
but not when you’re alone and have no one to
share it with. The time tends to get away, the
seconds, minutes, hours you spend in meetings,
on social media sites, and traveling. It pays to
stop the presses and the meetings and spend
quality time with your child. Kids don’t care
how much money you earn, but they do care
that you are around for important days in their
lives that they never can repeat.

The best advice would have to be to persevere.
Be patient. Have a desire to love what you do.
And go forward. NEVER, NEVER give up.

Stop and take stock regularly! It is very easy when it is your own business
to continue working after hours, after the kids are in bed, over the
weekend, especially when the business is run from home. Ipads, laptops
and phones make it possible to check emails and be a social media queen,
even when you are out with the kids in the park. I work from home, but I
created a rule for myself that once a week (on Friday just before
dinnertime until Saturday evening or sometimes Sunday) I don’t work! It is
not always easy, and I sometimes need to fight the urge to check emails or
my Facebook fan page, but this is the time I dedicate to myself.

Love yourself as you love your
child, mother, friend, lover.
Laugh at your insecurities, laugh
with your mind, your body &
your soul. Laugh out loud, laugh
inside, however you laugh…
laugh, laugh, laugh. Live as you
choose, surrender to all that you
are and live free.

Ban the words "I can't" from your
vocabulary and of those around you.
Those words are too often a sign of
someone who has accepted failure
before they have even begun.

Time management and
business clarity are keys to
success. You can always find
a way to make more money,
however, you can't make up

Stay true to yourself and your female assets. Never try to
copy male leadership styles or behaviors. However, educate
yourself in the innate differences between men and
women to be able to be accepted, well liked and connected
with men and women. Stop treating men like hairy women!

I think one of the biggest hardships for mom entrepreneurs is lack of time. You need to
devote time and energy to your family, which is a full time job in itself, and then find time
to spend on your business as well. When you are trying to sit down to your business after
dealing with your family duties, you can feel so exhausted that the last thing you want to
do is deal with paperwork or look at a computer screen.
Here are a few tips to make you feel re-energized to work on your business. Firstly, a cat
nap only takes 20 minutes and will make you feel instantly refreshed afterwards. If
possible, find a quiet place to work; half an hour of non-interrupted work is better than a
couple of hours where you are distracted, as you cannot properly concentrate. Think
positively – if you are in a mindset where you really don’t want to deal with work, your
time will not be spent productively. Finally, if you can, work at your most productive time,
this might be early in the morning or late at night, but if you try to force yourself to work
when you are not motivated to do so, the best ideas won’t be flowing.

Take a cup of self love, add a dash of courage
and a pinch of knowledge, and mix it with 120%
of self belief . Mix well knowing that you are
perfect as you are; don’t stand in your own way,
you have all the ingredients to make it. Bake
slowly staying true to your soul and you will rise
perfectly! Have faith and feed the world with
your uniqueness. From love we find peace,
being in service to humanity brings success!

This may seem harsh but
here’s my best tip….
Don’t be a wimp.
Everyone is afraid. If you
want to be successful,
embrace the fear, move it to
the side, keep taking one
step in front of the other
and get busy taking care of
business.

There are three pieces of business advice that have helped me become a
successful mom entrepreneur:
1. Connect with and engage your customers' emotions. More than 80 percent of
decisions are made based on emotion; connect with and engage your
customers' emotions vs. trying to simply sell a product.
2. Make an "I've Done" rather than a "To Do" list every morning, Highlighting
what you've achieved - and seeing it as an achievement before you even begin
a task, goes a long way in both defining important goals and setting your
mindset to achieve those goals. For example rather than say, 'Meeting
at 3pm to discuss client creatives change it to "Got approval from client on 2
concepts.“
3. Trust your gut instincts. Moms especially have an incredible intuitive power
that has been proven to be right the majority of the time. Advice from trusted
advisors can go a long way, but in the end, it's important that you learn to listen
to yourself.

As a mother of 5 and a grandmother of 3, I qualify as a Mom. My advice
is that it is never too late to begin a new career or interest. At 65, I am
learning business, marketing, and finance to add to the skills I already
had.
-- Gloria EarleyConnect here…

Whether you are a new entrepreneur
or have been at this for a long time,
don't focus on the financial aspect of
your business all the time. Focus on
your enjoyment of building your
business and the value you are
creating for your clients. Being a true
entrepreneur sometimes means not
being financially rewarded, but if you
truly love what you are doing and are
happier for it, you can always adjust
your lifestyle until you find the right
mix.
-- Jeff Robinson

As a female entrepreneur, you often face the challenge of balance
with your mate. Men still have that cave man instinct of being the
hunter gatherer for the family. Today, especially in this economy,
being the main provider in a home sometimes falls upon the wife. It
can easily make a man feel like he has lost the leadership in his home.
This can turn the nicest man into bear. To help keep the home
harmonious, include him in many of the business decisions and let
him help you with some of the talks. Do not give him orders, but let it
be his decision. Make him feel like he is a leader in the business. I
know first hand it can be difficult giving up a little control in the
business to maintain a happy home and solid relationship. But he will
love you for including him in being a provider for the family. If you are
in disagreement with your mate (or others), do not work it out with
heated discussions. Use a ‘Mommy’s gentle approach’ to resolving
conflict. A soft voice leaning into a person will get your message
across much more effectively. They will receive your message like you
are serving their favorite pudding and love you for it!

NEVER put yourself in the position of feeling guilty
about balancing work with the needs of your children.
Your children are the most important possessions you
have and they must always take priority. If other people
have a problem with that, then you need to question
whether you want or really need to do business with
these people!
--Jane FarrellyConnect here…

Indecision is worse than decision, because even
if you go in the wrong direction, you will learn
more lessons from it than from choosing
indecision. Keep in mind that you always need
to choose a direction! --Csilla Incze

Best Mom Entrepreneur Business Advice

  • 1.
  • 2. We asked entrepreneurs from around the world for their BEST business advice…
  • 3. We asked entrepreneurs from around the world for their BEST business advice… So that we could SHARE IT with mom entrepreneurs.
  • 4. These individuals welcome you to reach out and connect, just use the easy connect here link on each slide. So without any further ado…
  • 5. Connect here… with Jo Lynn at myMarketing Cafe From day one, I have followed three rules to help shape everything I do. 1. If you do only one thing, take the time to plan. It’s that important. 2. Always treat others--whether customers, employees, vendors, partners, or visitors--with respect and professionalism. 3. Integrate list-building into all of your marketing strategies. Don’t miss the opportunity to capture data from everyone who engages with your business. -- Jo Lynn Deal Connect here… with Jo Lynn at myMarketing Cafe
  • 6. As CEO of your home and business, you have plenty on your plate. My advice, busy mompreneur, is to keep your business simple. Control the volume of information, commitments, and initiatives that come into your business. Limiting the flow of input allows you to magnify the output to grow quickly. By applying the same strategy to your home, you’ll be amazed at how fulfilling it is to avoid overwhelm. --Jackie Nagel Connect here… with Jackie at Synnovatia
  • 7. My advice? Prove them wrong. You know who I am talking about. Those people who say, "You are doing what?" "Oh, that will never work." "You don't have time to do that." "You'll never succeed." Sometimes these people are your closest friends, your family, people you expect to be behind you no matter what. Well guess what? It's time for you to prove them wrong! Take that negative energy being thrown at you and turn it into something positive. Use it as motivation to push you to succeed. Sometimes the best feeling is being able to say, "HA! I did it!" Have faith in yourself. Don't let those negative thoughts get into your head. Sure you will have bad days. No business is perfect 100% of the time. But during those down times, you have to remind yourself why you are doing this. Remain positive and say to yourself, "I WILL be successful." Believe it or not, there is great power in positive thinking. Remain positive, and prove those naysayers wrong. --Tracy Baschke Connect here… with Tracy at stella&dot
  • 8. Believe in yourself. I know it sounds trite. Here's the thing. So many of us women doubt ourselves. We second guess our skills. We wonder whether or not we can compete. We think we're too young or too old. We become our own worst enemies. There is so much specific business advice worth following; but until we believe in ourselves, none of it will make a difference. -- Jen Havice Connect here… with Jen at Make Mention Media
  • 9. My best advice to mom entrepreneurs is to make sure you are able to concisely and confidently tell others exactly what it is you do and how it benefits them. Connect here… with Standralyn at Terry Consulting Services
  • 10. (Focus) Look at the big picture and always do the right things for the right reasons because there are no shortcuts. Within, you have all you need to succeed. Go for it and don’t forget to breathe. -- Maryann CroceConnect here… with Maryann at Croce’s Transmission
  • 11. Connect here… with Laura at Laura Fontaine Coaching
  • 12. As a mother and entrepreneur, as well as a high profile mother, the best advice I can tell you is to remember that your children are growing up and they need your undivided attention at times . Although I have been a business women and entrepreneur for most of their lives, I have seen them go through the junior high years, high school years and now the college years. Never forget your family, success is wonderful but not when you’re alone and have no one to share it with. The time tends to get away, the seconds, minutes, hours you spend in meetings, on social media sites, and traveling. It pays to stop the presses and the meetings and spend quality time with your child. Kids don’t care how much money you earn, but they do care that you are around for important days in their lives that they never can repeat. --Alexis LeviConnect here… with Alexis at Alexis Levi Sports and Entertainment Group
  • 13. The best advice would have to be to persevere. Be patient. Have a desire to love what you do. And go forward. NEVER, NEVER give up. --Carmen Revelo Connect here… with Carmen at Pure Essence Organics
  • 14. Stop and take stock regularly! It is very easy when it is your own business to continue working after hours, after the kids are in bed, over the weekend, especially when the business is run from home. Ipads, laptops and phones make it possible to check emails and be a social media queen, even when you are out with the kids in the park. I work from home, but I created a rule for myself that once a week (on Friday just before dinnertime until Saturday evening or sometimes Sunday) I don’t work! It is not always easy, and I sometimes need to fight the urge to check emails or my Facebook fan page, but this is the time I dedicate to myself. --Orit Adiri-NiemoghaConnect here… with Orit at h&d Diamonds
  • 15. Love yourself as you love your child, mother, friend, lover. Laugh at your insecurities, laugh with your mind, your body & your soul. Laugh out loud, laugh inside, however you laugh… laugh, laugh, laugh. Live as you choose, surrender to all that you are and live free. --Elisa -Marie Grzesiowski Connect here… with Elisa-Marie at Female Antics
  • 16. Connect here… with Coach Mi Ban the words "I can't" from your vocabulary and of those around you. Those words are too often a sign of someone who has accepted failure before they have even begun. --Mi Thian-De Wind
  • 17. Time management and business clarity are keys to success. You can always find a way to make more money, however, you can't make up for lost time. --Jenny Powers Connect here… with Jenny at Running with Heels
  • 18. “Little by little, the bird builds its nest.” -Every little bit helps reach your dream. --Becky McColl Connect here… with Becky at Connect Design
  • 19. Stay true to yourself and your female assets. Never try to copy male leadership styles or behaviors. However, educate yourself in the innate differences between men and women to be able to be accepted, well liked and connected with men and women. Stop treating men like hairy women! --Andrea Jones Connect here… with Andrea at The Relationship Coaches
  • 20. I think one of the biggest hardships for mom entrepreneurs is lack of time. You need to devote time and energy to your family, which is a full time job in itself, and then find time to spend on your business as well. When you are trying to sit down to your business after dealing with your family duties, you can feel so exhausted that the last thing you want to do is deal with paperwork or look at a computer screen. Here are a few tips to make you feel re-energized to work on your business. Firstly, a cat nap only takes 20 minutes and will make you feel instantly refreshed afterwards. If possible, find a quiet place to work; half an hour of non-interrupted work is better than a couple of hours where you are distracted, as you cannot properly concentrate. Think positively – if you are in a mindset where you really don’t want to deal with work, your time will not be spent productively. Finally, if you can, work at your most productive time, this might be early in the morning or late at night, but if you try to force yourself to work when you are not motivated to do so, the best ideas won’t be flowing. --Sarah Laughran Connect here… with Sarah at Inovision
  • 21. Speaking clearly at meetings (with colleagues, customers or Potential employers) is vital! -- Clare GreenhalghConnect here… with Clare at English Speech & Pronunciation
  • 22. Take a cup of self love, add a dash of courage and a pinch of knowledge, and mix it with 120% of self belief . Mix well knowing that you are perfect as you are; don’t stand in your own way, you have all the ingredients to make it. Bake slowly staying true to your soul and you will rise perfectly! Have faith and feed the world with your uniqueness. From love we find peace, being in service to humanity brings success! Namaste x --Jacqui Land Keavney Connect here… with Jacqui at Global Soul
  • 23. If your heart and your intuition are telling you something different from all the advice you're hearing - ignore the advice and trust your inner knowing. -- Pippa Moye Connect here… with Pippa at Silver Ray Healing Therapies
  • 24. This may seem harsh but here’s my best tip…. Don’t be a wimp. Everyone is afraid. If you want to be successful, embrace the fear, move it to the side, keep taking one step in front of the other and get busy taking care of business. --Lynne Chaushev Connect here… with Lynne at Happy ever After Dating
  • 25. There are three pieces of business advice that have helped me become a successful mom entrepreneur: 1. Connect with and engage your customers' emotions. More than 80 percent of decisions are made based on emotion; connect with and engage your customers' emotions vs. trying to simply sell a product. 2. Make an "I've Done" rather than a "To Do" list every morning, Highlighting what you've achieved - and seeing it as an achievement before you even begin a task, goes a long way in both defining important goals and setting your mindset to achieve those goals. For example rather than say, 'Meeting at 3pm to discuss client creatives change it to "Got approval from client on 2 concepts.“ 3. Trust your gut instincts. Moms especially have an incredible intuitive power that has been proven to be right the majority of the time. Advice from trusted advisors can go a long way, but in the end, it's important that you learn to listen to yourself. --Patty Kennedy Connect here… with Patty at Kennedy Spencer
  • 26. As a mother of 5 and a grandmother of 3, I qualify as a Mom. My advice is that it is never too late to begin a new career or interest. At 65, I am learning business, marketing, and finance to add to the skills I already had. -- Gloria EarleyConnect here… with Gloria at Big Papa’s Sauces
  • 27. Whether you are a new entrepreneur or have been at this for a long time, don't focus on the financial aspect of your business all the time. Focus on your enjoyment of building your business and the value you are creating for your clients. Being a true entrepreneur sometimes means not being financially rewarded, but if you truly love what you are doing and are happier for it, you can always adjust your lifestyle until you find the right mix. -- Jeff Robinson Connect here… with Jeff at MobileWise Media
  • 28. As a female entrepreneur, you often face the challenge of balance with your mate. Men still have that cave man instinct of being the hunter gatherer for the family. Today, especially in this economy, being the main provider in a home sometimes falls upon the wife. It can easily make a man feel like he has lost the leadership in his home. This can turn the nicest man into bear. To help keep the home harmonious, include him in many of the business decisions and let him help you with some of the talks. Do not give him orders, but let it be his decision. Make him feel like he is a leader in the business. I know first hand it can be difficult giving up a little control in the business to maintain a happy home and solid relationship. But he will love you for including him in being a provider for the family. If you are in disagreement with your mate (or others), do not work it out with heated discussions. Use a ‘Mommy’s gentle approach’ to resolving conflict. A soft voice leaning into a person will get your message across much more effectively. They will receive your message like you are serving their favorite pudding and love you for it! --Kimi Ayers Connect here… with Kimi at O2 Wizard
  • 29. NEVER put yourself in the position of feeling guilty about balancing work with the needs of your children. Your children are the most important possessions you have and they must always take priority. If other people have a problem with that, then you need to question whether you want or really need to do business with these people! --Jane FarrellyConnect here… with Jane at Focus Coaching
  • 30. Indecision is worse than decision, because even if you go in the wrong direction, you will learn more lessons from it than from choosing indecision. Keep in mind that you always need to choose a direction! --Csilla Incze Connect here… with Csilla at Healthy with Coffee
