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.

  • When I started working out around the house more Ezra asked me, “Why are you doing those exercises all the time now?” and I responded by saying, “Because I want to be stronger.” That’s what inspired this photo and my “strong” pose.

For the next couple of months, I have partnered with @planetfitnessca and will be sharing more about what I am doing to take care of myself and bring those home workouts to the gym while I check out their Abbotsford location.

P.S. did you know that a PF Black Card membership allows you to bring a friend for a free workout every time you go in?? Comment below if you want to be
my friend and join me! #seriously

  • Don’t be fooled by our matching outfits and their cute faces, the majority of my photos looked like photo two and three.
  • We’ve been under the weather (mainly the kids 🤒 ) for what seems like forrrreverrrr!! We bundled up anyways and took in some of this ❄️ snow and even though it’s cold AF and our 🐕 puppy might be the biggest wimp of all it was definitely worth it.
  • I like pink drinks and I can not lie. ⠀

I also love my SodaStream! I am so excited to share that I'll be creating more deliciousness with @sodastreamcanada this year as they asked me to join their #streamteam for the second year. Last year I learnt so much about how they are changing the world with bubbles, reducing waste and turning so many pop drinkers into sparkling water lovers. Best part is, you use tap water from your home so whenever you want to make bubbly water (as my kids say) it's so easy! #partner⠀

  • Would it be weird if I said we drove around specifically looking for this door? #thatpinkdoor #butnot
  • #AD Our TV is usually set up in our garage's man cave but during the winter months it makes its way into the living room. We love having cozy family movie nights and enjoying some Orville Redenbacher Extra Buttery popcorn. It's butter-ly delicious! Bonus: it's made with no artificial colours, flavours, or preservatives. What's your favourite family movie right now? @orvillecanada #originalpopcorn #OrvilleCanada Photo: @juliechristinephotography
