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…)

Interview with Nikula Gandhi – Owner of SweetDreamzVille

Inteview with Nikula GandhiTell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.

My name is Nikula. As a mom of two boys, ages 4 and 6, I enjoy the outdoors and love spending time with the kids.

Since 2008, right after my first child, I started designing sleepwear for him. I wanted something that my child could relax in after his bath, at the same time, was durable enough to play, tumble, and wrestle in (boys will be boys). I could not find much at a reasonable price that was fun, elegant, devoid of Disney characters, and of course soothing to their skin.

So I started to design and tailor sleepwear for my kids. It all started with a great idea and a little hard work. Today, I proud provide quality sleepwear direct to your doorstep.

What did you do before launching your own business?

I have a Masters in Biomedical Engineering and was working as a Senior Test Engineer designing and testing heart catheters. After my 1st child, I switched my full-time hours to part-time, so that I could spend more time with my kids. But even being part-time, I still felt like I was working all the time. It felt like I wasn’t spending any time with my kids, so eventually I quit my job.

How did you fund your business?

This is self-funded business. (more…)

Interview with Nicole Orozco – Founder of Mompreneur Media

MompreneurMediaTell us a little bit about your entrepreneurial journey.

My journey as a mom entrepreneur began in 2005 after the birth of my daughter when I left my job as an advertising associate with a local newspaper to start an online baby boutique.  I loved being an entrepreneur and while I enjoyed the boutique industry, I realized I was more passionate about design and graphics, and that led to me pursuing my passion as a website designer.  I absolutely love working with inspired, creative and absolutely amazing entrepreneurs who’re pursuing their own dreams and aspirations.

How are you making money online?

My main source of online income comes from my web and graphic design services. However, I also enjoy blogging and recently began accepting sponsored posts.
