ABP:: Tickled Pink Hairbows

Who:: Christy @ Tickled Pink Hairbows
Business Established:: May 2009
What they do:: I am a stay at home mommy to my beautiful 8 month old little girl. She is such a joy to me! My husband and I recently moved so that he could attend seminary and when we moved, we decided to take the leap and have me stay at home. It was a hard decision and was definitely a leap of faith. To help supplement our income, I've started this bow business. It started with simple single bows and I'm now working on more complicated custom bows and made to match bows. I've also recently added some clothing to the site. Right now we've got tie onesies for little baby boys and soon we'll be adding pillowcase dresses as well as a monogramming option.
How she finds balance:: I do a lot of my work when my baby is asleep and my husband is in class or at work. Right now she's taking four hours worth of naps during the day and she goes to bed around 8 p.m. so I usually have plenty of time to get my orders done while still having time to be with my family when she's awake and he's at home.
Her best advice:: Don't expect to take off right away. I've been going at this now for half a year and am just now starting to see repeat customers.
Save Now:: When checking out, in your comments write "MarketMommy" and Christy will refund 10% of your purchase.
What they are giving away:: A single Jumbo Bow
Play and win:: Which is your favorite bow?

ABP:: Centric Strategies

Who:: Kristina @ Centric Strategies and Transforming the Customer Experience
Business Established:: 2007
What they do:: Transforming the customer experience and improving the connection between businesses and their customers. You can find more information by visiting www.KristinaEvey.com and www.CentricStrategies.com.
How she finds balance:: I really try to stick to a schedule of working while the kids are in school and trying to keep the after school time open for them. Of course, reality doesn’t always work that way. So, when I am with my family, I try to stay disconnected from work. I try to give them my undivided attention for blocks of time.
Her best advice:: Getting a sense of balance is important, but it is more important to recognize that the balance will always shift on a daily basis. Some days you will work more than you should, so spend more time with your family the next day.
What they are giving away:: A CD of a product in her audio series - One on One with Lisa Ford – A Customer Centric Conversation by Kristina Evey.
Play and win:: What is your favorite post in Kristina’s blog?

How she finds balance:: Balancing work and family life can always be a struggle. My husband works night shifts sometimes so after the kids have gone to bed I always try to devote those evenings to my work. Most days its a little bit of work, then a little bit of playing with kids, then a little more work, then a little cleaning, etc. The days are long and busy.
Her best advice:: My biggest advice for other businesses is to always remember why you started your company. Sometimes I have to remind myself that part of my vision was to have more time to spend with my kids. If I find myself working too much I cut back.
