This post is so generously sponsored by Vistaprint. I am so thankful for this opportunity and having them create this video with me to share what has helped get me on track to growing a successful small business. Scroll down for giveaway & video.

Creative a Community

My journey as a blogger began four and a half years ago. I started this blog to build a community where conversation and creativity inspires moms and business owners to be successful. Providing a voice for businesses and creating a community for moms has truly been a rewarding experience, and I’m constantly asked “How did you build your audience?”.

A Recipe for Success

The reality is, there is no secret recipe for the community that has been built. I am a passionate believer in relationships and creating connections beyond the digital platforms that we communicate through. It’s really all about getting out of your comfort zone! The relationships I began to build through this community blossomed as a result of me getting out of my comfort zone. Whether it meant booking coffee meetings or attending events, these authentic interactions can be largely attributed to my success.

Getting out of Your Comfort Zone

Networking. We’ve all heard the term, and frankly for many, it can be terrifying. Putting yourself out there, introducing yourself, and oftentimes, all on your own? For me, this was the epitome of getting out of my comfort zone. My tip when it comes to networking, is to always be prepared. For me, this meant creating beautifully designed business cards to help me feel legitimate. Whether you’re a blogger or business owner, I highly recommend always having some business cards on hand. It is amazing how a simple business card can be a tool in showcasing professionalism and preparedness. 

I definitely feel so encouraged to be able to empower other moms and small business owners to feel good about what they’re doing and continue to pursue their dreams. 

I’ve partnered with Vistaprint, who also has a focus of helping small business owners, to give a lucky winner a $250 credit so that you too can have the tools and know how to look professional. 

Until December 31st, 2018 Vistaprint was also kind enough to offer you all a 33% discount by clicking here.

  • New hair, who dis?
  • We surprised Sophie at her birthday party and had a friend bring their pony over to give the kids rides. After the party she said “Mom can I have that exact same birthday party next year?”
  • Top Knots & Pizza Nights = Best Night Ever.⁠⠀

Last week, @panago_pizza delivered the new @BeyondMeat vegan pizzas as well as the @Gardein Breaded Chick’n tenders!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Even though I’m not vegan myself, I’d heard so many great things about the new plant-based products from @panago_pizza I was so excited to give them a try! Out of the two new additions, the plant-based Beyond Spicy Calabrese was my favourite, and trust them when they say spicy.⁠⠀

  • Quick day trip to the island, I took a tip from all of you and wore my lulus in anticipation of a full belly.
  • Cheers to Thanksgiving friends 💫 💕 I’ve been so grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to contribute to 8+ of @ilikeherstylevancouver’s print magazine. They’ve created such a great space for women to connect, inspire and encourage. My last contribution shares how I wear summer dresses & rompers in the fall, and I must say is one of my cutest articles yet. Also big thanks to @juliechristinephotography for capturing such cutie shots I can never pick just one.

You can find the print mag at all their rack locations (see details on website) or online.
  • What a joy it was to go out yesterday and show my support to two ladies who are such incredible women, role models, mamas, creators ... seriously all the things.

Can’t wait to flip through the pages of #fraichefoodfullhearts cookbook and be inspired to make some new things. Such a pleasure to celebrate with you both @jillian.harris & @fraichenutrition — you both radiate love and joy.
