She’s been staying at home with her babies since she was 20 and reveals she’s “Ready to get back to the real world and get a career going as an eco-event planner!” Tracey’s blog is about her change from shopaholic to ecoholic, http://inspireplanning.wordpress.com/. Her latest post, “What your kids need to know” offers resourceful tips on how to “green” your children.
2.Gotta love Stephanie Williams, a working mom and Corporate Buyer responsible for a $250M buy. She’s worked in corporate America for nearly 20 years. In the last three years, she’s been working to reinvent herself and start a writing and public speaking career. She’s recently completed and published her first book focused on empowering working moms entitled "Mommy Leadership: How to Use Your Motherhood Experience to Grow as a Leader." AND, this week she shares, “Forbes Magazine's World's 100 Most Powerful Women” revealing that SIXTY-ONE of them are MOTHERS. (Hear us roar!!!!!!!!!)
3.Become inspired by Angie, a full-time graduate student and full-time worker with two children - a teen and a preschooler! Despite Angie’s bout with bronchial pneumonia (feel better Angie!) she writes one kick-a$$ blog: “Top 3 Social Bookmarking Sites.” Learn the pros/cons of using:Diigo, Delicious, and StumbleUpon.
Wait, there’s more… Butterfly’s featured October Mom Mentor is Mandi Norwood, mother of two daughters, author of “Michelle’s (Obama) Style” & award-winning Editor-in-Chief. Mandi is also the author of “How to Be Number One in Your Own World”. She is a regular contributor to CBS, CNN and has established herself as an icon in the world of beauty, fashion and home in the 30+ market. In an exclusive video interview with Butterfly, Mandi shares her journey of writing and raising kids. Watch, she’s just awesome.
