How my father's hard words, and being bullied, made me an entrepreneur!


 Imagine that you stand on the edge of a platform at the swimming pool... Blindfolded!

You have no idea how high up the platform is, if it is the 1-meter, 5-meter or the 10-meter platform. You have no idea if there is water in…

Your little sister, the entrepreneur

Before I begin today, I understand that there have been a lot of studies debunking the idea that birth order is something that influences people's behaviors.

But I am still fascinated by birth order and how often it works out. It may one day be designated as "the modern-day astrology," but I am…

Resources for Starting Your Own Business

If you're looking to earn money from your blog, at some point it's time to make the jump from running your site as a hobby to treating it like a real business. Below are several resources to use for guidance along the way, each of which I've used personally in the last ~24 months.

The Mompreneur Life: Lessons I'm learning along the way

I am an entrepreneur, not by choice originally, but an entrepreneur nonetheless. About two years ago, I found myself pregnant with baby #2, unemployed and raising a toddler. Our little angels cost money to raise, and we needed two incomes to keep life running as smoothly as we possibly…

Obsessing About Mr. Wonderful

I'm giggling because I'm mildly obsessed with Mr. Wonderful these days. Anyone who's read my blog recently can attest to that. 

Could it be because he kinda reminds me of Paul Emerson, ruthless and calculating CEO of Blue Coat Capital? 

Check out my novel Unlikely Venture if you're…

Women Make Better CEOs...Just Ask Mr. Wonderful

Women make better CEOs.
At least they do to Kevin O'Leary, the shrewd and calculating entrepreneur of ABC's Shark Tank. But this isn't conjecture; he's got numbers to prove it.
According to Mr. Wonderful, female-run companies offer him greater returns on his investments and quicker exits. 
“If I want high returns with low volatility, that equals a woman.” You heard it here, folks.

Celebrate The Lifestyle, Not The Product

As a small business owner I was always challenged with finding new ways of reaching fellow handbag junkies who would buy my designs. In retrospect, I tried to boil the ocean and I didn't reach my target at the right level. The primary goal was always to move units and recoup costs so I'd have funds to pump back into the business. At the end of the day, a lot of one-and-done customers didn't do much to sustain my rapidly shrinking market share.

After some research, I determined my…

There's Nothing Taboo About Failure

Hi, my name is Kristen and I am a handbag junkie.

In fact, I love them SO much that I spent a very large sum of money to design and sell my own. Unfortunately, though I cherished those handbags and saw them having a unique value proposition, my business never did become profitable. I really thought it was on the brink a couple of times but we all know close only counts with horseshoes and hand grenades.…

To Boost Or Not To Boost

I'm not a Facebook guru, by any stretch.

My fan page confuses the heck out of me, specifically why some posts get minimal reach whereas others get tremendous engagement...we're talking mind-blowing numbers. From little old me. =)

I still have yet to figure out how these posts are evaluated by the elusive Facebook algorithms but here is what I suspect...they pick up on certain words and if there is anything remotely related to a contest or giveaway or solicitation of business,…

Don't Go It Alone

Entrepreneurs aren't superhuman. Sure, they have drive, vision and dedication but that doesn't always guarantee success. It's easy to get derailed and frustrated when things don't go smoothly as planned. And trust me, they never do. The road to greatness is fraught with challenges so why not rely on help from others who share your direction and passion and whose skill sets can complement your offerings? Realize early on that you can't singlehandedly change the world, but with the support of…

I Want A New Drug

Some people say you should write what you know. It makes sense, doesn’t it? After all, you can deliver a more compelling story if you’re familiar with the subject.

My editor told me from day one to expand out of my comfort zone and do just the opposite.

When I wrote Unlikely Venture, I had a storyline in my head. Okay, that's not exactly true. I had about a HUNDRED stories in my head before landing on the ONE, and even then I flip-flopped around until I landed on the…

This Love Affair Will Cost You

There is a really good reason why feedback is so critical in the product development process.


Hmm, interesting. Tell me more.

If you go down a path without prospective customer feedback, you run the risk that you will never be able to gain traction in the marketplace. You WILL feel strongly about your product. This is pretty much a guarantee. It's hard not to take criticism personally when you've poured your heart and soul into your idea but develop a thick skin…

The Flower Power Entrepreneur

Do you know what I absolutely hate spending money on?

Greeting cards.

I spend tons on cards for people that may be displayed on a counter for a couple of days and then casually get tossed into the trash.  Even the "discount" cards are still around $2.99.  And let's not even discuss the dollar store cards.  Much cheaper but...scary-looking!  You know what I mean?  If you've ever seen one, we're on the same page.

But a friend of mine recently formed a business that…

Why #ichoose Scentsy

Before I joined Scentsy I was struggling working 2 jobs and practically homeless. After some mis-communication over parking tickets my husband and I decided to work on our marriage. One of the things I made clear was that I wanted to be independent and continue to work from home, but also make money from home.  The kids were in daycare and my…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
