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.

PEARLs and TAXES

Good day Pearls , Now that the holiday season has come to an end our next big endeavor is TAX TIME! Of course, tax time tends to overwhelm the best of us but fiscal responsibility for business owners and individuals should not be frightful as long as you are preparing yourself accordingly. Though you may be quite familiar with filing your own taxes, don’t assume you are an expert with your small business tax responsibilities. In 2020, Pearls are Financially Strong, Resilient and Luminous. We, women small business owners need to ensure that we are rendering our businesses/side hustles healthy in all fiscal avenues. To prepare for this blog entry, I took the opportunity to speak with a Certified Public Accountant in the DC Metropolitan area with over 20+ years of experience to give some pointers on keeping your hustle solid and fiscally sound. Mr. Robert L. Waller, CPA/CFE , was eager to provide direction for Women Small Business Owners on a few questions regarding responsibiliti

Pearls, Pods, Purpose

Dear Pearls,  Thank you for patiently awaiting the next blog post of Nacr3! Covid-19 has been a major interruption in the flow of everyone's lives from our children to our elderly. Everyone has been impacted in a major way in all areas of their livelihoods: socio-economic, mental health, emotional health, family and friend relationships, and physical health. No one can doubt that it's highly unlikely that things will return to be 100 percent the same as our Pre-COVID lives, but Pearls this world-wide pandemic (both Covid-19 and BLM) has taken a toll on us all and we should look to recollect and emerge as the Pearl you are! Just think of COVID/BLM as the irritant our little oyster needed to create the best that is within us.  During the brief hiatus, every other day, week, and month I continued to contemplate the scope and sequence of the blog yearly outline. The first 2 weeks of March until the present day has shown me a few things about my own Nacr3. And I figured that I can&#

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?
