Yay! It’s February! One of my most favorite months, mostly because Valentine’s Day is in February which is such a fun day for celebrating love of all kinds and appreciating those who give you love on a daily basis.
However, this year I have something extra to be excited about because I’ve decided to make February 2016 “Build Your Business” Month on the Mompreneur Advice Blog!
But, before we dive into our new topic, lets take a moment to recap how exciting January was! In January our topic was “Start a Business” and we learned A LOT. You can read all the posts from January by visiting the Start a Business page. It was so much fun to have a writing focus and dedicating a WHOLE MONTH to just the topic of starting a business and how to get your business in motion.
We covered Small business topics such as:
- Choosing a Business Name
- Advice for Mompreneurs
- What You Need to Start a Business
- The Reality of Being a Small Business Owner (this was my favorite post to write because it was the opposite of all of my other posts – kind of a buzzkill – but sooooooo important!)
- Home Based Business Ideas
- And my other favorite post, Why You Should Start a Business of your own!
We also had our two VERY FIRST Featured Mompreneurs posts! Check them out here. It was so much fun getting to interview these two awesome ladies and learn their stories of how they are being successful in business! They also offered super helpful information and insight into how they are actually running their businesses, making a profit, and balancing work life and family life.
“Ten Talks” Speaking Event
Another REALLY exciting thing happened in January! I was asked to speak at a SUPER awesome event here in my home town of San Luis Obispo called “TEN Talks on ENTREPRENEURSHIP” which was hosted by my friend Michael Joseph. If you haven’t heard of TEN Talks events you can check them out on their website. The events are like a local version of TED Talks and feature a variety of topics and speakers from the community sharing their experiences live on stage using video and photo presentations.
The event took place on the evening of January 28th and was a major success! Overall there were about 110 people in the audience and 10 speakers sharing their personal stores of success in Entrepreneurship.
It was a real pleasure and honor to speak at such a powerful and inspiring event for entrepreneurs! I shared my personal story of creating my first successful business at the age of 25 and titled my presentation “How One Girl Turned Her Love of Food Into a Six-Figure Business.” I’ll be sharing the video presentation in an upcoming post once I get it edited and ready for the web!
This was my first speaking event sharing my story of success and teaching others how to be successful in their own businesses. It was such a rush! I’m looking forward gaining more experience as a speaker for other inspirational events!
[ PS – If you have an event you’d like me to speak at, I’d love to hear from you! You can contact me via my contact page ]
So, all in all, January was a very exciting month! I’m super excited for what February will bring with our topic “Build Your Business”.
February is “Build Your Business” Month!
