My Dream…My Brand

My information is meant to empower and motivate women to start a business from home. I will provide valuable information that can be used to start a business and generate success. I seek to inspire and stimulate an entrepreneurial spirit.

I am a single working mother from North Carolina. I have been a telecommuter in the insurance industry for nearly 10 years. After months of soul searching, I decided to return to school. My major is Business Administration. Learning more about the world of business sparked an interest in starting my venture.  I immediately began searching for legitimate work at home opportunities.  La Bella Baskets turned out to be the perfect fit for me. I am looking for additional opportunities. I firmly believe in multiple streams of income. I am working  on a business plan for an e-commerce site and several other undertakings. I will update any information I find beneficial. Leave comments. Ask questions.  Network with me.  Send me information on legitimate ways to build income.  Email me @ makemoneymama74@yahoo.com. Make $ Mama is me. Check regularly for updates. Make $ Mama tees and other items to come….

Don’t be afraid to close your eyes & dream. Then wake up & see where you are.     -Sean Combs

Top Social Network Sites For Women Entrepreneurs

On a earlier post I mentioned the importance of networking. This could one of the most important steps when beginning a new business. The first to receive information about your new venture should be friends, family and connections. The best way to connect is through social networks. A. Michelle Blakeley compiled a list of the top 9 networking sites for women entrepreneurs.

1. Empower Me! – From blogs to websites to networks and everything in between, there is something for every woman. @talentdiva

2. Diversity Woman – Executive network for women of all races, cultures and backgrounds.

3. International Black Women’s Collaborative – The perfect platform for creating new personal and business connections. Live Local and Think Global!

4. Ladies Who Launch – Find information on successful women entrepreneurs as well as resources for women. Ladies Who Launch is an online and offline social network that provides opportunities for women to move their businesses and personal goals forward.@ladieswholaunch

5. Minority Women on the Rise – profiles successful women entrepreneurs from coast to coast, who are successfully running thriving businesses. @sylviabrowder

6. Pink Magazine – PINK represents more than a color. It´s a badge of honor celebrating a global mission of equity and opportunity – a movement acknowledging all that women are today and will be tomorrow.

7. Savor the Success – is a social network that connects entrepreneurial, professional, and creative women while helping to build big dreams in a real way @savorthesuccess

8. Women Owned – information, tools, networking opportunities and advice that has helped hundreds of thousands of women. Women just like you – starting or growing their business.

9. Women’s Peer Network – Only join if you want to improve your business contacts.@thebizwoman

She is featured in Forbes.com as one of 30 Women Entrepreneurs to Follow on Twitter and the host of Simple Truths: Intelligent. Insightful. Informed. on BlogTalkRadio.com.

Persistence

Do not get discouraged if customers are not immediately attracted to your business.  If you believe in your dream keep pushing. Your attitude can be the difference in lack and abundance. Stay positive.  Network. You never know when you will come in contact with a potential sale or business partner. Advertise. People will never know about your business if you do not get your product or service out there. Do it all. Online, offline, word of mouth, business cards (never leave home without them)…In the end, persistence pays off.

Money grows on the tree of persistence

Network!!

When starting a business it is of great value to surround yourself with like minded people. Networking with other business owners or even people that are wanting to start a business can be beneficial. Social networking sites are a marvelous place to start. In just a few weeks, I have met a ton of business owners, motivational speakers, life coaches etc…I have asked many questions and they all have been more than willing to give beneficial advice and tips. Network!!!
