Tips for mompreneurs - My take on how to thrive and survive running your own business

Mom Boss, Mom Entrepreneur, Small Business, Toronto Moms

I'm back! Back to blogging and social media after a long and healthy break. This is the beauty of a seasonal business. While work is never really done when you own your own business (believe me, there have been lots of exciting things happening in the background over the past few months...), there are ebbs and flows alongside the season. But still - a 5 month break from social media??? This seems somewhat unconventional or at least not recommended in today's digital world. But here's the thing. It's worked for me. And when you own your own business... you're the boss! So I thought it would make for a wonderful welcome back blog post to share some of the tips I've learned over the past 2 years of being my own boss and how to thrive as a mompreneur, including taking breaks (gasp)!

How do I love thee... let me count the ways! When it comes to Valentine's Day, I am all about showing (and not spending on) the people who are special to me that they are loved.

The crafts, the baking, and of course, the chocolate...here are five simple actions that will make you, your Valentine, and so many people around you feel amazing this Feb. 14! 

Easy ways to extend the kindness into the New Year

Happy New Year! And with that, we're into another year. I don't know about you, but I'm not one for grand New Years resolutions, which may or may not prove successful in a few weeks time. What I do enjoy, though, is to use the New Year as a chance to reflect and re-evaluate, and commit to  improving on the things that were already going well last year. And after a month of using My Kindness Advent Calendar and practicing daily acts of kindness in our home and community, it's of course on my list to keep up with the kindness! If you loved your daily kindness practice during advent season, or want to start one this new year, here are some easy ways to focus on kindness to start off the new year. These are the things I'm thinking about in 2019!
