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.

  • This weekend we were invited to go visit the Easter Bunny. I knew the girls would be excited about it, but I didn’t realize HOW EXCITED, until we got there. They were hopping around, giving hugs and high fives and sneaking into the chocolate basket.⁣⠀

  • When I think about my childhood, bike riding is one of the first things that comes to mind. Spring and summer days we were always cruising down the streets with my sisters or making makeshift jumps from random pieces of wood.⁣
⁣
Soooo pumped to have all the kids on a bike this year and finalllllyyyyy getting a bike for myself so that we can create some of those same memories with our kids.⁣
⁣
All the gear came from @canadiantire, bikes, helmets and I even those colourful beads for the spokes to make noise as they peddle. Did you have those as a kid too? #sponsored #CanadasFunStore
