Mission Statement: To provide top-quality counsel to moms seeking part-time solutions to their work-family needs.
 
Mission Accomplished: "So Thank You. Without your help, I never would have had the confidence to even think of trying something like this! I am extremely excited right now, but have a lot of work to get done. I hope this gives you a good feeling too. You are definitely very good at what you do."

A Voice of Experience

EP Motivating Force:
After becoming a mom, I realized the amount of flexibility I wanted was going to be hard to find working for someone else. Also, after returning to graduate school, I realized that if I wanted to specialize in counseling moms seeking part-time employment I would need to develop that practice on my own.
 
EP Musings:
One of the great features of being an entreprenurial parent is there is no typical working day! I adjust my schedule as needed to accommodate my personal needs. Sure, there are times when I have to work evenings or weekends. But, the trade-offs are worth it without question!
 
EP Advice:
Be patient! It takes a while before the business starts to roll in and that can be very frustrating.
 
Spend time early on thinking hard about a type of business you would really enjoy working on. Working on your own takes discipline, energy and patience so finding work you love is key to success.

Favorite Quote:
 
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream, discover!"
