If you read my most recent newsletter you have heard the news: I finally launched my online baby book- www.MyOwnLittleStory.com
This blog, The Inspired Mom, was born out of the concept that there must be more moms like myself. Who had an idea, a dream, a goal and they might need some support in order to pursue their ventures. In fact, the very reason I was able to reach my goal was because I had a support network of friends and family who wanted to see me achieve my goals. Even though I have launched my website, I still have a huge journey ahead of me. I need to get out there and market my book. This is not something I have experience in doing, but then again everything I have done over the last three years has been outside of my “scope” of experience.
Up to this point, I never considered myself to be a creative person; but, as I look at my website and a finished baby book, I realize I am sort of creative. Also, I didn’t envision myself as an entrepreneur, but I can’t think of anything else to call someone who has created his or her own business. I knew nothing about technology or how to build a web-based business, but I have managed to ask the right people and do enough research so that I could bring My Own Little Story to life. Now, I am going to teach myself something about marketing and public relations. I guess in the near future, I might have to hire someone if I want it done right. In the meantime time, I am going to harness my passion for my product and see who will share my enthusiasm
I hope that my readers will take a look at my website you can click here: www.MyOwnLittleStory.com. There are some really cool features of My Own Little Story that have never been done before on a baby book site. Email reminders of important milestones, the ability to omit questions and pages so they don’t appear in the final version of your child’s story. For example, if you used a surrogate or adopted your child, you might not want the page that describes all about where you travelled while you were in my belly. The hand-painted watercolors created by Devon Galusha are timeless and adorable. Check out our baby onesies, gift vouchers and stationery. They make great gifts for friends that are expecting.
If any of you reading this have had a small itch to start your own business or float a concept- I hope you will contact me. I can be your cheering section or even share some of the mistakes I made. Maybe you can avoid the same pitfalls!
I am typing this message up at the end of the day- Mother’s Day, feeling exhausted and somewhat lazy. On that note, I am going to wrap up my blog. I hope that anyone who is reading this had a wonderful day being honored and cherished. Thanks to each one of you for your support throughout the two years I have been blogging.
