#MomBizMondays: Success and Reinvention – How to maximize your potential in 2012

TOPIC: Success and Reinvention – Maximize your potential for 2012!

The holidays are approaching at a rapid rate… before you know it, the clock will strike midnight, you’ll be wearing a funny hat and kissing someone while listening to Auld Lang Syne. It will be the New Year. Welcome 2012! We want to arm you with some great tips and tools to help prepare you for a new year of business.

Perhaps you need a fresh start? Perhaps you need some redirection? Maybe you just need a little kick in the pants to do something you have been avoiding? Join us as we share tips and tricks to help set yourself up for business success and to maximize your business potential in 2012.

We want you to be armed with as many systems and supports that we can share to bring you some sanity and success for your Mom Business in 2012. We get the struggles, we get the frustrations, we get the “pull your hair out” days. We have been there and done that – and still do some days! But there are steps you can take to set yourself up for a successful new year. We want to share some ideas and talk about your ideas for your business in 2012. Moms: Stop being martyrs and get help, ask for help, and share your advice!
