Welcome to Mom Invented
Welcome to Mom Invented. I'm thrilled that you are here! Now that the kids are back in school (phew!) many of us have more time to brainstorm about our businesses. In fact, this is a great time to allow yourself some creative freedom to explore new possibilities before diving straight into action. Action without a plan wastes time! And many of us are looking for ways to earn money to contribute to our family income which means that there is no time to waste.
Therefore, I invite you to explore different programs at Mom Invented that are designed to offer information, training and inspiration.
People often ask me what steps they should take first. I know that the words "business planning" often fail to conjure feelings of excitement and our reasons why we can't plan rapidly come to mind (don't know how, don't know the numbers, don't have time), yet deep down we all know that we really "should" plan. How about rephrasing it to say, "I am going to design a business that I LOVE."
The One Page Business Plan for Women in Business workbook is the fastest way to design your business. There are plenty of examples in the book of other women (many without business backgrounds) that are leading the way. You will be inspired to join them. In addition there is a fabulous CD included in the workbook that offers budget templates. In other words, you plug in the numbers for your business and it automatically generates your budget. As you engage others to support your business, they will be impressed that you have a budget and plan that clearly articulates how you are powerfully designing and building a successful business. (Note: The price of this workbook is higher because of the valuable CD. Many of us spend money on our kids, families and friends and often we find it hard to spend money on ourselves. Isn't your business worth the investment?)
In addition to business planning, there is so much more to do here at Mom Invented.

If you are looking for direction and tools to regain control and be your own boss, check out my new book, Your Million Dollar Dream: Regain Control & Be Your Own Boss.
"Your Million Dollar Dream really is the definitive start-up guide for this day and age. Tamara Monosoff has covered EVERYTHING and created the ultimate small business reference book.... and as with Monosoff's other titles, I just love the real life anecdotes, making YMDD such an entertaining (as well as informative) read. Huge Congrats to Monosoff and the Mom Invented team- this book will be referred to in many different circles (not just Mums) for the next decade I'm sure. " Edwina D.
