Raising A Family And Raising A Business – At The Same Time (Replay)

Raising A Family And Raising A Business – At The Same Time (Replay)

December 10, 2021

Unfortunately, the business world is full of failed businesses, and "successful" businesses with failed marriages.  There is an idea that you can have a successful family, or business, but not both.  With 4 awesome "Mompreneurs", I discuss how we are not choosing to be a "really good Mom", or "really good at business" - we are choosing to do both!

If you just let life happen to you, you can very easily go down the path of being successful at only family or only business.  But if you "take a moment and own it" - and are very intentional in what you do, you will place the proper value on family and business - and others will value what you do as well!

Today's guests are:

Lori Lee - Owner of Brampton Mompreneurs, Mother of 4 children

Sacha Pinto - Owner of The Wolf Consulting (www.thewolfconsulting.ca), and Mississauga Mompreneurs, and Mom of 2 children (listen closely for the youngest!)

Sara Clarke - mom of 4 boys, business partners with her husband in Martin Clarke and Associates, bookkeepers and business consultants

Grace Moores - owner of The Moores Group, a marketing agency that specializes in sponsorships for small businesses with a community based demographic. Grace and her husband have 2 children.

The 4 Questions To Ask When Marketing Your Business - with Shannon Cox (Replay)

The 4 Questions To Ask When Marketing Your Business - with Shannon Cox (Replay)

December 2, 2021

"Plan, do, and measure." Learn four strategic questions you need to ask when planning the most successful marketing for your business.

Shannon is both entrepreneur and educator (Professor, actually) in the marketing and management field. She works with business leaders to help them zero in on their customers and to increase sales by developing marketing communication strategies that work.

She has a wide range of experience having worked with law firms and cement plants to nonprofits and even federal government managers. Like many of us, Shannon has juggled a career around raising kids - and though her career path emulates a moth in a porch light rather than ascending corporate rungs, she brings a lot of curiosity and competence to her consulting work at Incisive Marketing and post-secondary teaching.
