LDBP:: CWAHM


Who:: Jill @ CWAHM
Business Established:: 2000
What they do:: Jill Hart is the founder of Christian Work at Home Moms, CWAHM.com and the co-author of So You Want To Be a Work-At-Home Mom (Beacon Hill Press, 2009). She graduated from Grace University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development/Family Studies and Bible. Jill has worked from home since 2000 and started her own home-based business to assist other Christians who desire to work from home while maintaining a godly life. Jill and her husband, Allen of CWAHD.com (Christian Work at Home Dads) reside in Nebraska with their two children. Jill’s articles have been featured on websites like DrLaura.com, ClubMom.com, and she is an expert author on EzineArticles.com. She is also a contributing author in four books. Jill is the host of the podcast,
Christian Work at Home Moment and co-host of the LIVE internet radio show, The CWAHM Network.
How she finds balance:: Balancing work and family in a constant struggle. I still have a preschooler home with me full-time and I have to be careful that I'm spending quality time with him. There are many days that I have to force myself away from work, away from the computer and find something creative to do with him. That may mean leaving the house all together and taking a trip to the park, or it may just mean reading together or playing a game. The balancing act does get easier over time and the more proactive we are, the better off our kids and our businesses will be in the long run.
Her best advice:: My number one tip is to find other mom business owners to work together with. As work-at-home moms it can be easy to get in our rut and just do our own thing. Working together not only gives us needed social interaction, it's also a win-win business situation. The more we work together, the farther our businesses can go.
What they are giving away:: One Copy of So You Want To Be A Work-At-Home Mom, 10 {yes, 10 winners will get::} 1-Year Classified Ads on CWAHM.com
Play and win:: Name two media outlets where CWAHM has been featured.

LDBP:: You-Niquely Created

Who:: Andrea @ You-Niquely Created
Business Established:: 2006
What they do:: Andrea has been a crafter all her life, but more recently has had some original ideas. Things that could solve problems, not necessarily save the world but useful in their own right. As a stay at home mother for 12 years, and just this year her baby is going into first grade, she is now ready to put her heart and soul into her creations and live her dream of being a business person.
How she finds balance:: Honestly I don’t do a very good job balancing. I mostly do my work at night and weekends, because I am a full time stay at home mother. But I look forward to putting more time into it this fall because my youngest is going into first grade.
Her best advice:: Just go for it, if you are passionate, you can make it work. I had been waiting until I had time to make everything perfect then I got on the Mom Entrepreneur support group and decided it was time to take off the life jacket and jump in.
What they are giving away:: A four-pack of bookmark belts
Play and win:: Who said this? “Ninety-nine percent of the failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.”
