Hello! Happy Monday! Welcome to our Mommy Monday feature for this week! Each week, we interview a mom business owner and get to know her a little better! We like to find out how she balances life with children and a business! We also like to hear about the marketing strategies that are working for her! Hopefully, this provides a little bit of inspiration to all of the other hard working moms out there! If you’d like to be considered for this feature, send us an e-mail! We’d love to learn about your business, too!

What is your business?
When did you start your business?
Official start was March 2014 but my co-founder and I had been planning and plotting for a year before the official launch.
What services/products do you offer?
-Healthgist.com is all about better health for the busy women and we achieve that mission by publishing helpful health tips and information for the on-the-go woman twice a week that goes out (for free) to our email subscribers.
-Our premium offerings are digital downloads/home-study products answering the health questions women have. More information about our products are available at https://healthgist.com/healthgist-premium/
How do you balance family and business?
Family comes first. Being a virtual business helps with flexibility. Most of my work is done while my kids are tucked in for the night. I have learned to temper my ambitions with the reality of my present committments.
What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?
-do something everyday, however small to propel your business forward. The commulative effect over time is what grows your business.
-start setting up your systems even if you are the only employee of the business. It will make the transitions easier when you start to expand and need more hands on the deck.
How do your market your business?
-We do a lot of collaboration with other complimentary businesses like hosting joint giveaways.
-Guest blogging and features on complimentary websites.
