10 Inspiring Tips For Mompreneurs

Hi Moms,

It's about 15 hours before regular nine to fivers will prepare for the next work week. But as we Moms know, there are many weekends when we don't have a break or we have to be deliberate about taking a break. #STRONG

Since my brainiac, Karma, was 7 years old I have been working on my own goals of being my own boss. After grad school, the BMOB bug (be my own boss) bit me and a dream came alive. The seed was planted long before I started college.  I grew up in a household with entrepreneuring parents. My mother and father were always keen on building their own business. My parents used their talents to build a b2c small business. Their business grew from wood carving business that helped them to show off their creative skills to my mother's Soft Stuff company. Both parents worked their day jobs and made time for their passions, but my Mom was the 1st Mompreneur that I knew and learned about being a business woman! #RESILIENT

What started out as a trades evolved into a business that gave me and my brother opportunities that were would have been beyond our reach. I can remember my mother coming home from the office and did her Soft Stuff Enterprise creative work of making stuffed characters, clothes and desktop printing. I remember her recruiting me and my brother to help out with her work all while my dad went out of the home to work. My mother raised her family and worked her passion. There are so many memories and a whole lot of inspiration for the legacy I continue to create today. #LUMINOUS

I have included a link to Veronica Romney's article on hubspot that speaks to our motto here at Nacr3. Being Strong, Resilient, Luminous! Take a peek. There's also a free business plan template to download.

Who are you loving, Pearl?

This month is known worldwide as the month where grand gestures are made to show someone how much you love them. February is the time of year outside of Christmas were people have this weird sense of obligation to spend the most resources as a strange, but familiar yet arbitrary indicator of devotion for someone other than oneself.  Though the origins of this day only continue to perpetuate some sort of lovemaking whether committed or casual in today's practice, it is this current day and time that people, more specifically women, need to spend this day practicing Self Care, the love and commitment to oneself. I am sure you've heard me say it before self-care is the foundation of your process/journey and your destination. Self-Care is significantly tied to your entrepreneurial journey in that it's a mirror of your mental health and entrepreneurial health.  Your health status is a byproduct of your self-care efforts.  Have you assessed your mental health status lately? Oft

Why Wait On It?

  Good day Pearls, It’s the Summer Time! The dreariness of the Winter has rolled on away, and now we are ready to see the sun.  I want to be honest with you today. I have been on a mission to get my goals completed, and I can see the finish line. In this work, I identified deadweight situations that just refused to shake me loose until recently. Yet, here I am...revitalized and excited about what the exciting new season will bring me. Pearls, it’s great when you can be you unapologetically.  Being me is actually one of the most satisfying experiences I have ever had in my life. Even though it can intimidate others when you are unapologetic about being yourself, I have learned not to be so quick to dim my shine just because someone can’t handle the focus. But there is also a matter of my being that can negatively affect my progress. The past 19 months have taught me that one true thing is that procrastination is my kryptonite. It can cripple all of my efforts if I allow it. I know that

The Golden Life!

 Dearly Beloved,  "We're gathered here today to get through this thing called life!" 2021 has come in like a lion. 2020 was a little quieter coming into being than going out, but 2020 absolutely pales in comparison (in audacity and not as in parity) to just the first 6 days of 2021. But if there is one thing that 2020 taught us or reminded us of was to survive. Many comedians color a social crisis as something that minorities (African-Americans) don't tend to panic when times of austerity are pressing. Several of us have been figuring out a new way of life to survive this pandemic. You know that's what 2020 taught you, if nothing else. There are sisters out there that have opened their dream side hustles or kicked that 9 to 5 to pursue their dreams of selling their favorite craft or family sweet potato pie recipes. 2020 taught us how to diversify our portfolios on the stock market and diversify our squads and financial streams.  But just as a great word once said,
