There are a lot of people out there who are a lot scared right now about how things are looking in the economy. And no doubt: onceÂ a person gets scared, more and more scary things start showing up.
I’m excited to continue sharing good news that’s happening to some great mom entrepreneurs right now. If we continue to look for what we can celebrate, what is working, what IS possible, then a lot of amazing mom biz owners will get the recognition and support they need and deserve.
Please read the attached blog post below from a new friend and colleague, Traci Bisson, who runs The Mom Entrepreneur as well as her own PR and marketing firm. Traci is doing a phenomenal job in her own ventures and is celebrating other mom biz owners who are committed to doing the same. Traci is looking for stories from mom entrepreneurs who are “making lemonade from lemons”, and will highlight them in an upcoming blogpost.

Blog will highlight 30 â€œlemonade from lemonsâ€ stories in 30 days
Barrington, NH: The down-turned economy has left many small business owners wondering what the future holds for them. The fear of losing their business has encouraged several mom entrepreneurs to look for opportunity while others cut spending and layoff employees.
Thirty inspirational women will be highlighted over a period of 30 days on The Mom Entrepreneur blog, which offers tips, advice and resources for balancing motherhood with running a company. These mom entrepreneursâ€™ stories demonstrate how these amazing women have decided to make â€œlemonade from lemonsâ€ using a little creative ingenuity.
â€œI have received dozens of emails from mom entrepreneurs all over the country telling me their â€œglass is half-fullâ€ stories,â€ said Traci Bisson, owner and founder of The Mom Entrepreneur. â€œFrom Misty Gibbs, owner of My Inspiration Lounge whose vision is to â€œhelp women feel empowered, especially during this time, so they can take control of their lives and become better prepared for future downturns,â€ to Sarah Laufer, owner of Play Outdoors whose business launched in 2008. Laufer has decided to focus on â€œbeing who we are and continuing with our goal of creating a place where parents and kids are encouraged to get outdoorsâ€.
These women and 28 more will be featured in a 30-day inspirational story marathon starting November 15 and concluding on December 14.
Mike Michalowicz, author of â€œThe Toilet Paper Entrepreneurâ€ (Obsidian Launch, LLC, 2008), in a guest post for The Mom Entrepreneur blog said â€œso here we sit, as entrepreneurs, on an economy that sucks. It will either revive over the next year or two or even perhaps die. But one thing for sure, it will get worse before it gets better. And it is now, right in this moment, that it is the best time to start a business.â€
The 30 stories in 30 days marathon will highlight mom entrepreneurs who also feel that now is the best time to start or grow a business because even in a sour economy lies optimism, promise and positive change.
