Review of my biz in 2017: What worked, What Didn't, and Where I'm headed in 2018

It's the New Year! I'm ready. I’ve decided on my 2018 goals, and I've been tackling them a bit each day. (Lara Casey says, "Focus on little by little progress, not perfection." I love that.) But first, I want to take a minute and wrap up 2017.  I did a wrap up post like this for the first time last year, and I started that post with a brief overview of my biz. In case you're new here (hi!), let’s pause and do that again!

    3 things I learned in my first year as a mompreneur

    Our sweet boy turned one year old. We had a low-key, (Mickey-themed) birthday party with our family. He had a great time seeing all of his favorite people in one room, and playing with all of his cousins! It was a wonderful day, but his birthday also marks something big for my business: I've been balancing motherhood and solopreneurship for 1 year now.

    I've accomplished a lot in my life and biz, but by far I'm most proud of being a work-at-home mom.

    Why I’m Not Afraid to Talk About My Kid on Discovery Calls

    Prepare yourself. I’m getting totally honest with you right now. Here it is:

    A 3 year struggle with infertility was what prompted me to go full-time in my own biz. 

    I was working from home for someone else, and able to spend a ton of time with my nieces and nephews. And I was like, Man - this would be cool to do with my own kid one day.

    So I did it. 

    "Baby Proofing" Lesson 1: Retainers

    In my last post, I promised that I would share how I am prepping my biz for my baby.

    I'm here with my first update on how I decide to tackle this big change that's coming.

    I decided to switch my business model.
