Congratulations to Elizabeth Vocke, this month’s Mommy Master! Elizabeth is the perfect example of a mom who has mastered balancing it all. She and her husband enjoy bringing up their daughter while following their passion for running a business.
For the last three years I’ve been a stay at home mom, which I absolutely loved and wouldn’t have changed for anything. But for the previous 11 plus years I had worked for international PR firm, Hill + Knowlton Strategies, and once my daughter Mirabelle started Kindergarten, I decided it would be a good time to refocus on my career. I know all about the ups and down to each scenario, plus the pros and cons of running my own business. My husband and I actually work together, both in our business and in raising our 6 year old daughter, so I have a unique perspective on balancing work and family.
I started by doing freelance writing, including a parenting column for the Tampa Bay Times, a column I write for the national publication Interfaith Family, as well as some other ongoing writing assignments, all of which I love.
Next, my husband and I opened Evoke Strategy LLC
, a full-service marketing and communications firm that does everything from web development to public relations to pay-per-click advertising (PPC) to content development…and more! My husband’s background is digital marketing and mine is more traditional public relations, so we decided it was a good time to merge our talents. We’re particularly focused on working with local businesses, because we really know and understand the ins and outs of owning businesses – and how hard it can be to market yourself.
Overall it has been a great year and we’re looking forward to continued growth. I’m especially proud to show our daughter what it is like to be a woman with a career and how we all work together to (try to) balance a business and family and show her how they are both so important.
