Introduce yourself to our readers and tell us about your profession:
My name is Melissa Alexander, I am the founder of Mom Means Business Co. a Mompreneuer Consulting and Setup for Success Online Business.
I assist new and aspiring Mompreneurs through Collaborations, Events and One on One Consulting, which provides resources to aid in the creation and or increase of their revenue. I am a Ex-Project Manager of 15 years turned Full-Time Entrepreneur . I knew before I even started my family that I wanted to be a Mompreneuer and assist other Moms who wanted to do the same.
.What tips would you share with women that are new to entrepreneurship:
Be patient success will not happen overnight.
Be committed and be consistent but do not burn out. For example if you decide that you want to live stream but can only do it once a month, do it once a month and don't beat yourself up because you can't do more. Just be consistent. Don't tell people they can catch you live on Facebook every first Monday of the month but you don't show up.
What tips would you share regarding how to balance being a mom and entrepreneur?
Great question! I actually co-authored a book speaking on this very topic, Mommy Means Business, Balancing Life As A Momprenuer.
The tips I would share are:
2) Get organized and stay organized. Organization is not everyones strong suit and if that's you, hire someone to help you.
3) Utilize a to-do list
5) Make time for Self Care
6) Remember finding that balance is an ongoing process
What is next for you in 2018?
I am in the process of launching a blog which will be up soon, stay tuned for that. If you're a Mompreneuer and are interested in being featured on the blog feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
