41 North Texas Moms Rocking Motherhood and their Business

Its no joke that Collin County is busting at the seams with NEW families, NEW businesses and lots of NEW opportunity . . . and of course these new residents just moving in are hoping to find answers to their problems. And whats even better, is when they can find those solutions with local businesses. With Mother’s Day around the corner, I selected a handful (or 2, ok, maybe a lot more)  of our Collin County Moms who were not only juggling family but took the plunge and started their own business. I’m talking, these ladies started from SCRATCH, not buying a kit . . they perhaps quit their jobs, have had sleepless nights, maybe they even took out a business loan and went for it.  Massive risk takers here!! Woohoo!! Go Moms! Running a business, when you are fully committed to it, is a roller coaster ride. It can be super challenging and super rewarding when you start something from scratch which is what I did with this blog and Becca’s List 

advertise in plano

or starting my own Facebook Ads Agency serving both local clients and global clients. Being a woman, I feel like I personally have this layer of emotion on top of that. I can go from tears streaming down my face to jumping for joy. I’m only speaking about me of course, I’m sure no other woman has ever felt this way  😉  From the outside, my friends and extended family only seem to see the happy moments and never know some of the punches to the stomach I have taken.  Not that anyone is punching me, its just that everything feels a little more exaggerated when all the weight is on your shoulders.  If you’re reading this and you’ve ever started your own thing, you might know what I mean. So let’s get back to these Moms on this list,  not only do they have to know their product, be skilled in their craft, they also have to be Marketing, Sales, the Accounting department, the Innovation Officer, the Account Manager and on and on. They have to sell for their lives/livelihood and hear countless NO’s and hopefully more enthusiastic YES’s that makes them want to jump for joy.  Its a roller coaster ride.  Its UP (new clients) and its DOWN (no vacation time, keeping the lights on during slow times) . . its enough to give you sleepless nights but of course the one thing you need more than ever is sleep. I encourage you to grab a cup of tea, sit back and read about these Mom-Owned Business in Collin County. They have taken risks and put their heart and soul into the world. And like they say, when you support a small business, you are directly supporting food on the table, ballet classes for little ones, and keeping the roof over their head. When you support them, it is a direct hit to their bottom line. Take a peek then pass this on to one of your friends in North Texas who could use one of these services  =)   Here we go . . .
