Greetings fellow mommies that are on the entrepreneurial road to success!  I wanted to join this group because it seems like we're on the same thought pattern, and it looks like a good idea to share our experience and maybe offer advice or tips to each other.
 
I'm a Navy wife, a mother to one son, with another on the way expected in September.  I currently manage and own 3 small businesses, and I hope to eventually grow them big enough to provide a decent income for my family.

I'm up for any advice you all have, and I'll surely share any that I have, please just ask. I'm totally all about 'Paying it Forward'. 

So to our Success!

*Smile, Rickina*

Hi Rickina
I am so glad that you decided to join our group.  We would love to hear more about you and your businesses.  My name is Sandra and I created this group to meet other small biz moms.  I myself have two businesses myself the first is my home interiors direct sales business with a company called AtHome America www.athome.com/san33  We sell home interiors that fit everyones style and budget.  My second business is one that I run with my mother called Mommy Maid Easy, we offer home cleaning to new moms, moms-to-be, moms who are pros at being mom but want a day off every now and then, and to any mom who you think could use a day off.  We offer 1,3,and 5 day packages providing our cleaning services.  We think that this makes the perfect baby shower, birthday or even wedding gift.  I wanted to tell you a bit about some of the other members of our group.  My sister Angela runs a business called Make It Personal and she sells Friendly Folks persoanlized (Adorable I might add) cartoons.  These make the perfect gift for just about any occasion.  My sister Sherryl also has ber own business offering her services as a personal shopper (for the person who needs to find the right gift but simply doesn't have the time) and Jeannie who owns a very successful used book store in Portsmouth and she sells Avon.  We also have a member who sells pure romance products.  I do hope that you will find anyhting you may need and want from our members businesses as well as find out any helpful info. for your businesses.  We would love to hear all about your businesses and we can't wait to help you to be successful at all that you do. 
Some of the helpful info. I have so far are #1 if you do anything that is direct sales a very helpful website is Home Party Planner Network, I have also advertised on Craig's list locally, WVEC also has a FREE classifieds ad on their website.  Some of the publications that are going to get you the most out there are Tidewater Women and the Kids Directory.  These cost money but will more than likely get you business.  We also looked up ValPak advertsing info and found that it cost $450.00 but it reaches more than 10,000 people.
If we can help at all please let us know.  We are so glad to have you on board and we look forward to hearing more from you.
Take Good Care

Dear Rikina
I wanted to write to you to invite you to join a group that I found and joined at www.meetup.com it is a networking group in the Hampton Roads area where you basically meet up with others (either women only, co-ed, or both) and network about each others business(es). I attended my first Speed Networking Meet up tonight and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.  I met alot of inspiring women and I had a great time.  I highly recommend this group.
Let me know if you are interested and I will send you an invited.
Take Good Care.
Wishing you much continued success.

Thank you for the warm welcome and the information. As I approach my due date with Ace, I'll be trying to slow down a bit, but I'm surely taking notes on what to do when I get up and mobile again. 

My fatal flaw or weak areas has always been getting the word out...I can never quite seem to capture my audience. But I'm going to be working on that more than ever later on.  I always seem to get a little upset when my efforts don't seem to pay off too.  Ever feel like that? 

Well anyway, thanks again, and to Our Success!

Dear Rickina
Congrats on getting close to your due date.  I know you must be walking around with much anticipation.  I will continue to send you more info as I come by it.  Do you have any flyers or anything?  I could put some out around my area to help spread the word. 
You take it easy and remember if you need any assistance either before or after your delivery Mommy Maid Easy is always available.
