Are you a mom? Are you a crafty business owner? Are you trying to figure out how to juggle the two without loosing your mind completely? Then I recommend picking up a copy of Mom, Inc. It’s the go-to for moms looking to be entrepreneurs. Written by business savvy Meg Mateo Ilasco and Cat Seto, this book is jam packed with personal anecdotes and professional tips to help give you the advice and confidence you need to know that you can do it all. It is possible! This book offers tips on everything that has crossed your mind when it comes to starting a business and then some. You’ll find chapters on finding time, starting a blog, freelancing, opening an online retail shop, financing your business, protecting your work, business cards, advertising, and even dealing with mom guilt.
I found the one on one interviews with mommies who have done it to be the most inspiring. It’s always uplifting to hear about some one else’s success and there are success stories sprinkled throughout this book.
Overall, Mom, Inc. reads quickly, is incredibly informative, and does not bore. A definite necessity in your crafty business bookshelf.
