Journey from Blogger to Small Business Owner

October 11, 2015
Lessons learned from a blogger to a small business owner,

Ever been to the point in your journey where you knew it was time to push yourself?  Just recently I realized I was 10 months into blogging & it was time to step out of my comfort zone & push myself to try new things.  Well, about a month ago the push came & I found myself becoming a real life small business owner!

Vend Raleigh Illuminate 2015,

Cary Heise (Owner & Founder of Vend Raleigh) & I at Vend Raleigh’s 2015 Illuminate Conference.

Yup, it’s true….. I have graduated to this new, exciting & very humbling experience.  A month ago I took the step and purchased Social Butterflies NC from an extraordinary woman, Cary Heise, founder & owner of Vend Raleigh & former owner of Stay-at-Home Rockstar.  She is a strong advocate for Mompreneurs who are building their small businesses & I’m so humbled to be following in her footsteps with Social Butterflies NC.


Life Lessons from Buying A Business,

  I wrote a post on Life Lessons I Learned From Buying A Business for Vend Raleigh, a professional organization for small business women, especially Mothers,  that focuses on networking, collaboration & support.   Please take a look at this recent post & I hope it brings you a little insight into my journey & provides you with motivation to take that leap into you next business or life venture.

Social Butterflies, online guide to local family activities in & around the Raleigh area.

While I’ll still be blogging here at All Inspired Mom you can also find me busily sharing local family fun over at Social Butterflies NC.  Social Butterflies NC  is an online guide to local family activities & events in and around Raleigh.  Free e-newsletters listing events from festivals, parks, holiday shows, museums, parades, farms & more are published monthly and emailed to subscribers. Take a  sneak peak at this month’s newsletter!   If you live in the Raleigh area hop on over and subscribe to this local family fun.  Also, if you are a small business owner or Mompreneur that caters to families then please check us out…as a  fellow Momprenuer I’d love to promote your business to our community.


  Have you ever pushed yourself to try something new?

    I had one kind of similar called Macaroni Kid. I loved it but in my area no one was as hip to stuff so I got no action I decided to let it go but the company itself was excellent
