Do You Tweet?


I do, but I have to admit I haven’t lately.
Why not you ask?

Because it’s so great! Twitter is wonderful for making connections with people but I love it more for all the wonderful information that’s available! Someone is always posting some type of report, some interesting news, a free downloadable thingy, an article; SOMETHING that sends me running around on the internet looking, laughing, reading, researching!
I’ll login to tweet some encouraging quotes or my words of encouragement-that’s all I tweet, because life is good-and the next thing i know it’s 1 hour later!

Top 5 LinkedIn Groups for Entrepreneurs

LinkedIn is the professional version of Facebook. It is an excellent professional networking resource. Many people use it as a job search tool; and entreprenuers use it as a powerful resource in the development, launch and success of their ventures.
On LinkedIn you can join up to 50 user-created groups from a list of thousands, absolutely free of charge. Not only do these groups allow you to connect with group members who could become future partners, customers, investors and employees of your business; but you also have access to the group discussion boards and news sections which provide more networking opportunities, answers to your questions and great advice!

Here are the Top 5 LinkedIn Groups that I believe will be beneficial for entrepreneurs.

My First Free Audio Program!


Finally, I posted my first free audio coaching program! It’s my desire to have 8-10 free down loadable audio programs and then several that are available for purchase. But doing it takes time. It took me more than a month, but I’m going to get better and better and it will take me 1-2 weeks to shoot out a program…I hope.

The free coaching program is available on my website and it’s called Cat Eye Focus, Helping You Maintain The Vision for Your Business. As mom entrepreneurs we have so many things to juggle and we tend to take care of everyone and their schedules first so our “thing” gets put on the back burner. Sometimes we do this even with our business plans and we try to make up for it in the middle of the night.

Even as I type this I just received a call from my 2 older sons asking can they go bowling with some friends. They were told to go to the friends’ house for 2 hours and come back. I was going to cook dinner, feed the babies and when they returned I would leave to go to my “other office”-the coffee shop around the corner. However I just agreed to them going bowling so my “other office” will be closed when they return. That means I won’t get much done today and I’m still tired from the weekend, so I won’t be able to stay up late tonight!

Events like this occur to entrepreneur moms several times a week, so when you finally get a chance to work you’ve lost some of the great ideas, lost some of the enthusiasm, or you have so many little things to catch up on that you become inefficient.

If you have this struggle than you’ll want to go to my website The Business Coach for Moms.com and download the free Cat Eye Focus audio coaching program so that you can maintain your vision even in the midst of distractions!

But before you go to download your free audio coaching program, leave me a message here: how do you handle the many distractions that cause you to lose your momentum?

Girls Rule!

I have 4 boys and a sexy man/boy/husband, so I hate to brag about women but…WE ARE AWESOME!!! We Rock!

I just read in Ikea’s newsletter that (and I am going to plagerize here, cause it will just take me too long to try to say it differently and I’ll lose all of my enthusiam):
While it doesn’t often make the news, business isn’t slowing down for American women. They hold the majority ownership of 7.7 million small businesses and, including co-ownerships with men, own 10.4 million, or nearly half of all businesses, according to the Center for Women’s Business Research. Employing almost 13 million and producing $1.9 trillion in sales, women-owned businesses have grown almost twice as fast as all firms in the past decade, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration.

How many times have you “saved the day” for your family? Again, the women save the day; but this time it’s for the country!
So,on March 13th, 2009, President Obama signed an executive order creating the White House Council on Women and Girls. The mission of the council will be to provide a coordinated federal response to the challenges confronted by women and girls and to ensure that all Cabinet and Cabinet-level agencies consider how their policies and programs impact women and families.

Yeah baby! We’re awesome! WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS are changing the world!

Encourage us here, how are you “saving the day”  for your family?

Aren’t You Tired of Bad News?

I don’t watch the news. People (namely my mother and father)are always trying to convince me that I need to know what’s going on in the world. I don’t think that knowing a baby was placed in the microwave by its mother, or Brittney Spears’ latest drama or how many people were bombed in Baghdad serves me. Those are things outside my sphere of control and they don’t really affect my life. Those stories add to the prevalent sense of fear that is palpable in our society.

To know how many people lost their jobs and how bad the economy is, help me to be sympathic toward people and their loss, but too much of that information becomes a distraction on how I run my business. I can’t coach and encourage WAHM to success if I’m also thinking of the “failing” economy. And the mom entrepreneurs that I’ve coached have gone on to do great things despite the “bad” economy. Why? Because we never entertain the conversation.

If you’re tired of the bad news check out happynews.com. Great information that will make you smile and keep you encouraged!
