Always Bet on Yourself!

Good morning Mom-preneures,

Today started early for me, 5 am to be exact. Up and at them working on a consultation summary for a potential client. One pearl of wisdom I picked up on Wednesday at the business fair is "Always Bet on Yourself'.

Moms,  I must say this message was reinforcement to get on my hustle consistently and passionately. Either I can work on someone else's dream or I can work to make my own goals a full time gig. I had to ask myself, what is your decision DBC? Ten years ago, I bet on myself and launched my advocacy/educational firm. After year 5 of operation,  I decided to revamp the focus and services of my educational firm. I decided that as an Educational Change Agent, I must strategically engage all stakeholders to align to my firms focus, investing in our children.  Here's a link to my firm www.bibbcook.com

Currently, I work with independent schools (charter and parochial/private) supporting their teachers in providing nurturing educational communities by providing professional development, teacher mentoring and school wide behavioral interventions and supports along with special education compliance. Being that teacher support/mentoring is key to investing in a child's scholarly success, BCC has made this area of need our focus as a community partner.

Enjoy your Saturday and Always Bet on Yourself! Being Strong, Resilient and Luminous...

Yours Truly,

DBC

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

Partner.Provide.Promote.Pearls

About 6 months ago, I had an interesting discussion with fairly new friends about healthy approaches to garner success in your endeavors.  One of their suggestions was to be more intentional about your goals/plans.  Now, we all know that intentionality is to be deliberate; when you do things on purpose. This discussion piqued even more of my interest to hear them make the case that being intentional must have a ubiquitous application.  To look at intentionality as more concrete than abstract, we considered 3 actionable approaches towards success, Partner.Provide.Promote. So as I prepared for a board retreat meeting with Friends of Ketcham Elementary School  (FoKes) yesterday, I thought about some things the board must be intentional about to accomplish our goals for the school. As an educator and small business owner, children have always been my pearls in the making.  As it relates to FoKes, given that these little pearls have a majority of women helping to cultivate them, we must b
