Do as I Say Not as I Did

Unknown-2

I met or connected with many of those that follow me and my endeavors through an organization I started some time ago called Mompreneur, Inc. Mompreneur, Inc was designed to celebrate and educate the mompreneurs- the female entrepreneurs that are successfully running their business and being the matriarch of the home. As you may personally know that is NOT AN EASY TASK!

Mompreneur, Inc provided education opportunities for mompreneurs. This was mostly done through live events. I then started providing more private consulting and legal services to entrepreneurs which left me with less time to focus on Mompreneur, Inc. With so many women-owned businesses closing and women feeling frustration and losing hope it was important to me to find the resources and experts to help ensure success. My passion remained with the organization.

However in addition to the time constraints there where other struggles. My primary struggle was that I found it was incredibly difficult to impact a community of mompreneurs when they were spread all over the globe. So many women were requesting live events and for chapters to be organized in their city I found myself overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed with trying to manage my own start-ups, my children AND attempt to execute the organization. I honestly stepped back because I could not handle the demand. I was not expecting such a huge global response. I was thinking a small local organization meeting at a small table at Starbucks! SURPRISE, SURPRISE! It was a classic example of thinking too small and not planning BIG enough.

After months and months of brainstorming and talking it out with my team of advisors I feel I have created the perfect solution to reach the masses! ***Clears throat and smiles****I am pretty darn excited about it too!

(INSERT DRAMATIC DRUMROLL HERE PLEASE)

I am pleased to have the ability to unite and educate mompreneurs nationwide through a virtual subscription box. Do you love subscription services as much as I do? This works much like a subscription box service that delivers hair products, jewelry, snacks, etc to your door step every month. However instead of delivering beauty and snack treats to your MAILBOX every month we deliver educational services and resources straight to your email INBOX every month.

This will provide education and resources to help subscribers’ grow their business. It also provides tips on the balance that mompreneurs have been yearning for. The service also provides monthly e-books, virtual business group coaching, business motivational conference calls, access to a private online community, specialized business educational webinars from industry experts, access to exclusive interviews with successful mompreneurs, a mobile app with discounts to over 200 vendors and MORE!

I already know you will LOVE it!! For more info on the service and how it works click here.

Mompreneur, Inc launches at 12 am tonight (June 7). For the month of June there will only be 100 subscriptions. FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. Here is the secret… Registration is open for a few hours RIGHT NOW for my VIPs. HURRY UP!!!  Click here.

I hope this relaunch helps you to see the importance of thinking BIG. Had I thought and planned for big initially there would be no need for a relaunch. Nonetheless it was a learning experience and I good story to share with my clients. “Do as I say, not as I did”!

Hope to see you on the subscription list!

I’d love your feedback! Check out the site and let me know what you think below.

Why an E-Business Makes Me Happy

readytolaunch

Have you like many others considered starting (or growing) an online business? A business owner who does any, or all, of their business using the internet, is running an online business (also known as an ebusiness).

It has become the business of choice for many boutique owners, consultants, coaches and more. There are so many benefits to having an online business. Here are my top 3 reasons:

1. Location Independence: The internet reaches across the world and spans all time zones. That means that when businesses take their operations online, they have the same capabilities. With a physical store/office, customers are limited by how close the store is and its hours of operation. Ebusinesses, on the other hand, are accessible from any area with internet access and open 24 hours a day.

The best part of that is that you as the business owner can be ANYWHERE! You can provide your services online or via phone, Skype, etc. or you can fulfill orders for products from anywhere with an internet connection. That means you can work from your home, from an office, from a local coffee shop or even from the beach!

2. Lower Overhead Costs: If you have ever owned a brick and mortar business you know the huge financial stress that places on many. The demands of paying for storage space for your merchandise, paying overhead for your office space, building out to make a place suit your needs….the list goes on and on. However with an online business the only expense you are faced with is the cost for a great website, your internet bill and a computer. Sounds pretty great, right?

3. You Stay Relevant: The internet is a big part of our lives, and isn’t showing signs of leaving anytime soon. Opening an ebusiness keeps you in touch with what’s current: it levels the playing field and gives you the resources needed to compete in today’s increasingly digital marketplace. For example, having an online presence on social media websites is a big part of getting your name out there. To stay relevant, businesses need to consistently post content on these outlets that interest their consumers. Having an online presence forces you to keep up with the changes thereby making you continuously relevant.

I started LeniseWilliams.com, an online source for female entrepreneurs, and haven’t looked back. I sell products online to people as close as Alabama to as far as Africa and Dubai. In addition I coach and consult business owners nationwide through sessions conducted via Skype or telephone. It is hard to believe that I have almost matched my salary from my brick and mortar law office in a very short time! The best part is that it gets better each and every month.

In addition to that the impact that I have had on people in multiple states and countries blows me away. None of it would be possible if I had not decided to launch an ebusiness.

Do your research and determine if it is the right move for you. You would be surprised at the impact AND the money you’d make. Generating a great income doing something that I absolutely LOVE, being home for my children and having the freedom to work from practically anywhere has changed my life…for the BETTER!

Are you ready? If you need help starting your online business I am here! I will show you everything I learned and everything I have done.
