I realized this morning that I had spent months working out the details of how Mentoring Moms would morph into MentoringU and how I would continue to follow my passion of inspiring entrepreneurs and lending support to moms looking to create a lifestyle based business. There are scribbles and doodles, mind maps and napkins littering my desk with my thoughts, goals and vision for this transition. It was late night work, nailing down the finances, building out the website, setting up my social media profiles and getting my baby launched…and I’m finally ready to show my baby off! If you are stopping by for the first time, or are a regular visitor, let me say Welcome!
MentoringU is my gift back, my business that offers coaching, mentoring and skills training for small businesses, especially those run by Moms. I work with small business owners to identify their goals, develop strategies, tools or training to teach them how to do what they need and help keep them on track. I also run both an online and in person networking groups called The Village where small businesses can network and work together to support each other and your business goals.
Do you have a business or are you thinking about launching one? Tell me about it in the comments below and join us in The Village!
Entrepreneurship – it’s the dream for more and more people these days. We live in a world that continues to devalue the personal approach to business. It’s all about the sale and the profits, with little regard to loyalty and longevity.
It’s a weird system we’ve created, where we look at college and a good job as proof of a successful life and promising future. We have schools that recruit students by promising application to and acceptance at a 4 year college. This is the path we set our children upon…but how many of us reading this article are paying off school debt while struggling to start, launch and grow a business? I know I am. I received an amazing education, and it definitely shaped who I am today, but looking back I wish I had seen the fork in the road, the place where I could have detoured from the societal norm and pursued an idea, a dream.
Many Entrepreneurs don’t find the confidence or determination to strike out on their own until a tipping point occurs. For some, it’s starting a family and realizing that the 9-5 isn’t the lifestyle they want. For others it’s the moment they realize that the path they are on doesn’t fill their soul, doesn’t provide the opportunity to create that drives so many of us.
MentoringU is a boutique strategy firm with a focus on supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs in the launch phase of products or promotions. We offer tools, resources, trainings and mentoring to help you achieve your goals with less stress and better results.
