Up Next in the WoMEN teleseminar series: Alisa Bowman

This is gonna be so much fun.

As you know by now, I’ve put together a fabulous and FREE teleseminar series for working moms called: “WoMEN: What Mom Entrepreneurs Need.” Our next topic in the series is something every mompreneur I know needs–some advice, tips, and clever ways to get the support we need from our partner or spouse. Running a business and raising a family is not easy, and it’s near impossible if you’ve got a struggle with your partner going on.

I’ve found just the gal to help us figure out how to make this better.

On Tuesday, April 14th at Noon ET, I’m pleased to welcome Alisa Bowman from “Project Happily Ever After” as my guest expert for the teleseminar entitled: “How to Make Your Marriage Work With Your Business.” alisa_bowman

Her approach to marriage, parenthood, career and friendships has been described as “disarmingly honest.” Her fresh take on life includes mentioning what others deem unmentionable.  From bikini waxes to second honeymoons, the silent treatment to power struggles (both with 2 year olds and 42 year olds), she is able to masterfully blend the helpful with the hilarious. Alisa speaks at college events and conferences. She has appeared in Better Homes and Gardens, Women’s Health and American Baby. She has also been interviewed on large websites such as Glamour.com, various newspapers and a guest on regional radio and television news shows. Alisa has authored and co-authored or ghosted more than 20 books, including 5 New York Times Best sellers. Alisa currently lives happily ever after (most of the time) with her husband, daughter and dog in Emmaus, PA.

I hope you’ll join us for this fun, wise and honest look at how we mom entrepreneurs can get the support we need from our relationships. Here are the details:

Ten Ways a Life Coach Can Help Mompreneurs

On today’s Mom Biz Coach Audio Blog, I’m going to answer some questions that I’ve been asked several times by working moms or mothers who are thinking of starting a business. I know how overwhelming it can be to be a fulltime mom and a fulltime entrepreneur.

Most of the mom entrepreneurs I’ve coached spent a lot of time thinking about hiring me before actually doing so. They weren’t exactly sure what life coaching is all about, or what we actually do in a coaching relationship. Some of my clients admitted to feeling embarrassed about hiring a coach to support them, almost like it meant they were a failure at being able to do what they wanted to do in life.

On my radio show today I’m going to tell you exactly what hiring a life coach can do to support your business. If you want to be successful on your own terms, create a business that works even when you don’t, get the buy-in and support you need from your spouse and your family, figure out how to get more clients and make more money without working around the clock, and understand how to spend quality time with your kids (especially while they’re young!), tune in to today’s show. I’ll be addressing these issues and more.

Details for the show: Go to www.blogtalkradio.com/mombizcoach. The Mom Biz Coach Audio Blog airs at 11:30 am ET for 15 minutes. If you can’t make it live, you can listen to the show at your convenience since it will be immediately archived in the “On-Demand” episodes listed on my show page at the above link.

Do you have questions about how a life coach could support you? Are you wondering what a coach actually does? I’d be happy to answer your questions if you leave a comment below.

Twitter Basics for Mom Entrepreneurs

I am no twitter expert, but I do love it and am committed to spreading the word to mom entrepreneurs and working mothers everywhere who could benefit from twitter’s powerful marketing capabilities.twitterbutton

 

I have been asked by some of my clients and colleagues to provide some tips on how to get started using twitter. Here are some basics:

1. It is critical that you include a picture of yourself when you set up your twitter profile. People want to know you, and if you don’t use a picture they’re likely to ignore you and your fabulous posts.

2. Create your twitter “handle” (mine is mombizcoach), but include your real name in your profile. So you might use your company name as your twitter handle, but you’d still put your real name (like Lara Galloway) in your profile.

3. Write a short, catchy bio that tells what you want people to know about you. Browse the bios of others to get the idea.

4. Include your website address!!! Do not omit this! It’s critical!

5. Start browsing around profiles of people. For instance, you can click on my profile, look at my followers, and then click to follow anybody that interests you. You must follow in order to be followed, so get rolling!

6. People will follow you for a variety of reasons. Whatever the reason, it’s fine. You don’t have to feel like you are going to converse with every person who follows you or who you follow. The great thing about twitter is that you are basically creating links between yourself and zillions of other venues (people) to market yourself. Don’t get obsessed by the numbers or the idea of being popular, but don’t just follow 5 people either. If you’re just getting started, I recommend you find 50-100 people to follow. Thanks to good twitter etiquette, many of them will follow you back, thus increasing your sphere of influence.

7. There are two basic forms of communique in twitter: Replies (always begin with the @ symbol) and DMs (Direct Messages). Replies are going to show up everywhere in your “timeline” (same thing as the news feed in facebook). Some people also call the timeline your “twitterstream” or “twitstream”… It’s the information that is being updated in real time while you and the people you follow post updates.

8. If you want to have a private chat with someone, click on their name or their profile and click “message”. This is like sending them an email. No one else will read it.

9. If someone makes a post you would like to respond to, I recommend replying to it so it stays in the public stream. For instance, I type a post: “Getting ready to listen to the Barefoot Executive’s upcoming teleseminar on building your list.” If you follow me, this will show up in your timeline. You could hit “Reply” and then the message you post will be seen by all your followers and will therefore help spread the word. When you hit reply, “@mombizcoach” will show up so everyone reading will know that you were directing your response to me.

10. “RT” stands for “Retweet”. Everything you post is called a “tweet.” To Retweet (or to RT) is to embrace the pay-it-forward attitude of twitter, and doing so is good twitter citizenry. If I make a post and it shows up in your timeline, you can help me out by spreading the word, or “RT’ing” my post. So if I post: “Join me for the Mom Biz Coach Audio Blog that starts in 10 minutes on BlogTalkRadio! Please RT!” You could see that, and then you would post: “RT @mombizcoach: Join me for the Mom Biz Coach Audio Blog that starts in 10 minutes on BlogTalkRadio! Please RT!”

11. The rule on twitter is give, give, give before you ever hope to get. That means share thoughts, comments, information of value and help others so that when you need help, or when you want to promote yourself, you have a group of followers who respect you and are willing to support you. If you only get on twitter and keep promoting yourself without engaging in conversations occasionally or without providing some good, valuable content, people will stop following you or block you altogether.

If you’re a working mom and wondering how this whole twitter thing works and whether it could help you grow your business, I’d be happy to answer any of your questions. Just leave a comment below. And hey! Be sure to follow me on twitter (www.twitter.com/mombizcoach)!
