Interview with Elizabeth Irvine – Creative Director of The Jewelry Project

Interview with Elizabeth IrvineTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.  

I never really thought of myself as an entrepreneur. I was just a woman who wanted to pass on knowledge and creatively express myself. My son’s childhood illness pushed me to find a way to help him and learn how to deal with my own stress. That experience was my portal to digging down inside of myself and get in touch with the best part of me. Then the drive and the  motivation to do my work came forward.

What did you do before making the leap? 

Before becoming a business owner, I worked as a registered nurse in pediatrics and took care of our three small children.

What do you believe has contributed to your success? 

Slowly evolving. Over time fInding a dedicated team of people to help me. Gradually allowing things to unfold and learning to be patient with the process. Providing education plus a meaningful product has been rewarding and successful.

How are you currently growing your business?

Our team now includes my daughter Sarah. She joined us after finishing her  bachelors degree last spring. As a mother, this is a dream for me. (more…)

5 Flexible Home-Based Business Ideas for Women

5 Flexible Home-Based Business Ideas for WomenBy Holly Reisem Hanna

Many years ago when I started brainstorming work at home business ideas, many occupations came to mind, event planner, professional organizer, doula, and personal concierge. But when I asked myself, “How do I want my life to look?” it didn’t include running all around town or working on holidays or weekends.

When I sat down and mapped out my dream work at home job, it involved working from inside my home with a schedule that was super flexible; meaning I could work any hours from anywhere in the world. While there are a lot of work at home business opportunities out there — many of them do require you to work standardized hours.

So if you’re looking for a truly flexible business to start, here are 5 ideas to get you started.

1) Blogger — Do You Want to Be an Online Publisher?

Obviously, I’m a huge advocate for starting your own blog. But let me tell you why blogging is such a great business to start.

  • It builds a business platform for other opportunities like freelance writing, coaching, speaking, marketing, or selling products.
  • Showcases your expertise.
  • Introduces you to people and opportunities you would not have been privileged to before. (more…)

Interview with Anne Hebert – Independent Marketing Consultant and Writer

Interview with Anne Hebert - Independent Marketing Consultant and WriterTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey. 

I moved to Austin, Texas after attending college in San Antonio. While I was looking for a full-time job, I worked as a freelance writer for two different companies. Then I took a job with a public affairs firm, where I worked for just under three years before I decided to start my own business. I’ve now been self-employed for almost 20 years.

How are you making money? 

I have several regular clients for whom I provide ongoing services, as well as returning and new clients who need one-off project help.

Give us an example of how you landed one of your first clients.

I had a friend design a logo and business cards, and I created a simple tri-fold brochure that listed my services. I sent it to everyone I had met or worked with, and I followed up with emails. (more…)

Can You Really Make Money From Home by Blogging?

Can You Really Make Money From Home by Blogging?By Holly Reisem Hanna

My first experience with a blog was back in 2005. A friend of mine told me that I needed to check out this celebrity gossip blog called, Pink is the New Blog. After reading a few posts, I was hooked. Not only did I enjoy the daily gossip, but I loved the casual and personal nature of his writing. Reading this blog became my morning ritual and it soon got me thinking … Is this his full-time job? How is he making money off of his blog? And how did land big time TV interviews?

Fast forward to 2007.

After the birth of my daughter, I quit my full-time job as an RN Clinical Research Coordinator and became a full-time stay at home mom. But after 9 months of play-dates, mommy and me classes, and a dwindling bank account, I felt the urge to make some money and exercise my brain. I looked online for different work at home jobs, but the majority of my time was spent weeding through scams and sifting through websites to find all of the information that I was looking for. It was at this time that I decided to create my own a monetized blog.

Fast forward to 2009.

After 15 months of doing research, creating content, and having a designer create a custom theme for me — I was finally able to launch in March of 2009. It took me 3 months to get my first advertiser and from there it has continued to grow and is now my full-time career. While I’m unable to disclose how much I make due to non-disclosure agreements with clients, I can tell you how I’m making money blogging and that yes, you can make REAL money blogging. (more…)
