5 Life and Business Lessons I’ve Learned From My Mom

5 Life and Business Lessons I've Learned From My MomBy Jan Pinnington

Life has a way of steering you in the right direction if you take a moment to listen. My mom’s advice has come back to me in ways I could never have even imagined.

I now affectionately refer to my mom as my “wise sage” and appreciate any and all insight she can share with me. She knows stuff. She’s lived through the depression and comes from a family of immigrants who spoke zero English when they arrived in Canada in the early 1900’s. Not only did my mom’s family of 13 children survive, but they thrived.

Hardship didn’t harden their perspective or hearts. In fact, quite the opposite happened. I’m honored to say that my mom and her siblings are kind-hearted, hard-working people who never accepted a handout. There was always enough to share, no matter how meager the meal or resource.

Here are the five life lessons I learned from my mom, and how I applied them to my business life today.

1. There’s No Instant Success.

My mom’s family arrived in wintery Manitoba, Canada with a few broken suitcases and dreams for a better life. Let’s just say that success wasn’t instant. It took decades to achieve stability and progress. (more…)

Do You Want a Work-at-Home Career That’s Fashionable, Fun, and Lucrative?By Holly Reisem Hanna

Last week I had the pleasure of attending my fifth cabi Scoop! Yes, you heard me correctly – fifth! I was introduced to cabi back in 2010 where I got to experience the brand firsthand at their fall 2010 Scoop Fashion Show.

It was there that I fell in love with the brand. Since that time I’ve hosted numerous cabi Fashion Experiences at my home, attended friend’s and family’s cabi parties, and purchased a lot of cabi clothing along the way.

If you’re looking for a fun way to make good money in the fashion industry here’s why you should consider cabi.

A Real Career. 

When you work with cabi they give you all the tools you need to be successful. This includes in-person training twice a year via the Scoop Fashion Show. So when you present the new line – you’re doing more than just selling, you’re providing personalized one-on-one wardrobe consultation services.

Cabi equips their Stylists with the fashion knowledge and know-how they need to help women look their best. And did I mention … the Scoop is a blast! From the high-energy fashion show to the inspirational words of wisdom, it is truly a unique company that offers a fun, lucrative, and fashionable career. (more…)

7 Side Businesses You Can Start Today

Side Businesses You Can Start TodayBy Kimi Clark

Finding a side business to start while you’re working full time or focused on another project is challenging, but it doesn’t have to be. There are many good options out there, so we’re sharing a few with you below … maybe even some you hadn’t  thought of yet.

1. Birthday Party Planner

Moms are busy, and although we usually have the best intentions to plan out a lavish birthday party for our kids, the reality is, things rarely go according to plan. To have someone step in and take over so we could enjoy our child’s birthday instead of stress out about it would be amazing!

Consider this: For the cost of a few business cards and flyers, you could be that person. If you know how to throw a party and don’t mind doing the leg work required at making contacts, getting everything ready and together and setting it all up, this could be the perfect side business for you.

You can work around your schedule and only take the gigs you want, and you get to be creative and use your imagination. In fact, thinking like a kid actually helps when you’re working as a birthday party planner.

2. Mobile Pet Groomer

If animals are your thing and you know a little bit about grooming and caretaking, consider this option. (more…)

How This Mom Built a Multi-Million Dollar Business Helping Newlyweds

How This Mom Built a Multi-Million Dollar Business Helping Newlyweds Tell us a little bit about yourself and your entrepreneurial journey.

I am an entrepreneur, CEO, wife, and mother of a 6 year old son. I have a bachelors in Biology and failing to get into medical school led to my career in sales. A frustrating experience at the DMV trying to get a new driver’s license in my new married name sparked the idea for an online name-change service and launched my entrepreneurial journey. Hours of research and coding led to the creation of, an online service that condenses the 13 hour name change hassle into 30 minutes. 300,000 customers later, I can officially say that I change names for a living!

What did you do before launching your business? 

I sold cancer diagnostic equipment to hospital pathology labs. I enjoyed improving the way cancer was diagnosed and treated and was the #1 sales representative for the company (and the first women to hold the title). Deciding to leave a successful sales career to launch a startup was not easy, but was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made.

How did you fund your business? 

I have two co-founders and we all chipped in $5,000 to launch I’m a big fan of bootstrapping a business. It helps you keep control of decision-making and incents you to “make it work” so you can make your mortgage.  (more…)
