“It’s so important for your kids to see you doing a job that you love,” my mother-in-law frequently says with a smile after listening to me describe the projects I’m working on, current clients, and interesting new tech devices that I’ve gotten an early look at.
I never set out to be an entrepreneur but over the past 8 years, the work that I started by writing on Tech Savvy Mama has become a full time job that beautifully integrates my background in teaching, technology, and school administration. These days the work that I do gives me the flexibility I crave in order to be the mom I want to be for my kids while earning an income doing work that I truly love. It’s a dream come true!
Whether you’re an intentional or accidental entrepreneur or a mom looking for the elusive work life balance, there’s a Mom Boss in each and every one of us according to Nicole Feliciano.
In her new book, Mom Boss, that comes out tomorrow (9/12), Nicole shares how she left the corporate world to be her own boss. Rather than working for someone else, she now is in charge of all the details for her family and her growing company, MomTrends.
In Mom Boss, Nicole talks about how she took the leap into entrepreneurship to solve a problem and being critical and realistic about jumping into the world of self employment. As she says, “Being a Mom Boss is no joke.”
To help guide readers towards entrepreneurship, Mom Boss includes a quiz to help readers match their personality and skills to a Mom Boss career type. The three career types- Solo Artist, Team Mom, or Brand Builder- has its own dedicated chapter that includes case studies, examples, how to spot the career type, possible career options, reasons to love this life, and very real pitfalls.
The second half of Mom Boss is all about getting your business up and running. From setting up shop, getting organized, finding your tribe, knowing your worth, and more. Also take a look at page 98 where Nicole has published my technology must-haves for Mom Bosses plus some tips about working in your own home office.
If you’ve been thinking about starting your own business but haven’t been sure how to get started, Mom Boss is a practical handbook for entrepreneurs-to-be and those just getting their feet wet. Books are currently on sale via Amazon and will begin shipping tomorrow.
You can also learn from Nicole and other Mom Boss panelists in person during the Mom Boss book tour. With stops in NYC, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Chicago, Baltimore, Connecticut, California, and more tour dates being added every day, chances are Nicole will be near you soon.
Thanks to book tour sponsor, Clorox, you’ll get to learn from Nicole and fellow Mom Boss business women who are making their dreams come true. For more information about the Mom Boss tour stops, visit the Mom Boss tour page.
I received my Mom Boss book with a great collection of products from Clorox and other companies, including Zotos Professional. I’m already a big fan of their 180 Pro Miracle Repair Damage Eliminator serum that smooths hair and makes it look silkier.
