Your Business Doesn’t have to Lose Momentum over the Summer!

Tamara Monosoff with her DaughtersSummer is here!  My kids finish school this week and I am stunned once again that another school year has flown by.  I know many of us will need to switch around our schedules (MomInvented.com will send out the newsletter monthly rather than weekly) and this often means less time to focus on our businesses. Therefore the key is to focus on doing things that will have a dramatic impact on the development and growth of your business in the shortest amount of time.

Here are a few programs & activities that may help you:

Mom Invented® PR Program in partnership with Pitch Public Relations:

Summer is a great time to get PR coverage.  News outlets are looking for content 24/7 and because many big companies will focus their PR efforts on the fall, this is a great time to get your business into the media spotlight!  Also, if your business has a back-to-school hook, it is not too early to get started (magazines have a 2-3 month lead-time requirement).  Learn more...

Business Planning doesn't have to be boring!

This summer let go of all the reasons why you are not planning, and instead, make a decision to get started! A plan will give you confidence, clarity and focus. Many of us avoid business planning for a variety of reasons: "I don't know how to write a plan," "I don't know the numbers," "I'm too busy," "It's too intimidating"...   A One Page Business Plan doesn't have to be boring. In fact, it's your best thinking (and your heart) on paper. You may even surprise yourself and fall in love with your plan!  To get an overview of the process, listen to the webinar that my friend and co-author, Jim Horan and I held in March. Then get your copy of this workbook and get started.

  1. Sharon,

    Thank you for your kind words! I'm thrilled that you are finding Your Million dollar Dream to be helpful. Please keep us updated on your progress!

  2. Great article Tamara. I have had very positive results sending a news release to local papers in cities and towns where my product is sold. My copy of "Your Million Dollar Dream" arrived from Amazon a few days ago and I am so happy with the content! It is way beyond my expectations. I was pleased to know I am doing quite a few things right and you make it easy to understand what else I need to do. "I can do that and I'll try that!" Thank you so much for a wonderful book. Sharon
