Comments Off on Growing a Successful Small Business & Vistaprint Giveaway

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.

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠

Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
