Studiopress’s Mompreneur Child Theme, Great for WAHMeos!

Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 1.12.25 AM

There’s just no excuse for mompreneurs and WAHMeos to not have their own website. I wrote about the importance of WAHMs having their own websites, and I just can’t stress it enough, especially in this day and age of the “she-conomy,” as Natalie MacNeil says (of She Takes on the World fame). Too many mom businessowners are depending on platforms like Facebook or Multiply to sell their wares, without giving much thought on building their online presence through a custom domain and self-hosted website.

Remember: Having your own website allows you to have complete control over your business, both online and offline.

Now, thanks to Studiopress, mom-business owners have a good option to consider, if they are ready to set up shop on their own home online. Mompreneurs, you can now buy a ready-to-use blog & shop theme for your online business, with MomPreneur, a child theme. This theme integrates two key elements of a mom-owned business: A blog and an e-commerce platform! Because really, these two components are all you need to establish a professional website that sells your products 24/7. [Read more...]

Review: “How to be a Work at Home Mom” ebook by The Mom Writes

This review originally appeared on Dainty Mom (February 2012).

I’ve been working at home for a year and half now. It just came naturally for me to do so, after I became a mom. I started doing freelance writing on the side, while I was still an employee. Eventually, I started writing full-time, and managed to get jobs from online forums and freelance writing job boards. I eventually set up my own system for working from home, from managing my household duties, the baby, my clients, and my blogging.

I really felt my way around, learning as I went, documenting my life lessons here on the blog, in hopes that I would be able to work out this work-at-home lifestyle I had chosen to live. That’s because I didn’t have one go-to guide that could help me navigate this world of the work-at-home mom. Until, one day, one of my blogging heroes came up with one! And I’m SO glad that she did.

WAHM Resource: HatchedIt Digital Planner

This review originally appeared in Dainty Mom (February 2012).

According to Salary.com, the job of family CEO should pay $134,121.00 per year.  That family CEO is known by a more common household (pun intended) name: MOM. Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or a mom who has chosen to work from home, being a home manager is an executive-level position that entailsmanaging multiple schedules within tight budgetary constraints, while staying focused on the emotional and physical needs of others.

hatchedit_logoThis was the seed behind HATCHEDit.com, a new online productivity and home management tool specifically created to assist the chief executive officer of every family:  MOM. Just as executives in the professional world have access to many tools that allow them to streamline how they manage their business, HATCHEDit.com’s aim is to fundamentally change the way moms and family CEOs manage their life.
