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!

Today’s mom entrepreneur is Margaret Salmond.

What is your business?
DVA Virtual Assistance

What services/products do you offer?
I’m a virtual assistant who works with solo entrepreneurs providing them with administrative, social media and project management assistance.

How do you balance family and business?
Well Im a empty nester now so its easier then when my daughter was still at home.

What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?
One, find a business that you would work even if you didnt get paid.  Second, find a plan that works for your family and stick with it.  On your calendar, mark off work time, family time, work out time, etc.  Once you come up with a plan, it will be easy to stick with.

How do your market your business?
Some online networking but I have found most of my business comes from getting out and going to networking events within my community.  And with that, referrals have started coming my way.

Where can we find you?
