What a night! I love listening to the mamas! Last night Jennifer Jamieson, a new mama pitched us and then asked how do we do it all… wow, that is such a great question. Everyone gave their two cents and shared their experience, helping a mama survive the trials of mompreneurship!
Our second mama, Amanda shared her beautiful children’s line and then pitched an entirely NEW IDEA… I think we were unanimous with loving her idea… … two thumbs up!
Way to go mamas! See you next month.
Every month we get together to learn from amazing women who are on the journey to fulfill some type of crazy dream… We learn about mamas who are bedazzling jewels, making organic baby food, to those really smart number mamas who offer accounting services. Mompreneurship is insane! I just want to say that again, insane. We are driven to do something… more. This month we hear from two more moms who travel on this long dirt road, which sometimes leads to know where. (But most times leads to a rainbow!)

I was at one of those entrepreneurial conferences about two weeks ago and I found out about all of these companies that I had no idea about, and one of them is MANTA. I am not doing business locally, I don’t have a storefront or a service currently but I can still use it for Living My Dreams. I think it’s smart to check it out, and to make it better… there can be no cost involved, yeah!
check them out!

Thank goodness I was at our meeting last night and listened!
There are so many details, that I honestly don’t have time for, but a seasoned, well
respected, (and a mom of two) business attorney sure will help when it comes to pressing contracts, details,
trademarks application, corporation status…agreements, AHHHH… I can go on and on here but I’ll stop, I think you get the idea, we need attorneys to cut through the fat of it all! Anyway I just wanted to say to MOD4LLP for showing up and helping us out last night!

Remember we now have a permanent monthly meeting home… and our next meeting will be all about the Plan! Do you have a plan? Are you just beginning or need to refocus? Our guest speakers are pros at details and all legal matters, considering they are attorneys for business! Here is what they think: ( i love this!)
Do what you love.
Your business is what you love. It might be engineering, writing, a restaurant, renewable energy, cupcakes, social change, phone apps, stationery, winemaking, literacy, games, cabinets, potato cannons, finance, aligned chakras, or oil on canvas. Maybe you’re an expert in accounting, landscaping, Japanese poetry, building houses, transmissions, medicine, performance, insurance or massage. Maybe you make the software that runs these other businesses, or the machines that make the software, or the cupcakes that feed the machines that make the software…you get the point. You do what you love.
We’re lawyers. We can work with you to understand the legal landscape surrounding you and your business. We want to explain the legal side of where you’ve been, and give you the tools to make an informed decision about where you want to go.
I like that they say INFORMED. Yes, I want to be informed… at every point of my business making process, don’t you?
Join us. Mark the calendar. February 16th 6:30-8:30 see you then!
