Amy McBride – 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

Meet personal stylist Amy McBride…

Amy is a fellow Columbus resident and mom entrepreneur I connected with via Instagram. She is the as a CPA by day and stylist by choice, Amy is the definition of balancing left and right brain.

With Closet Confidence, Amy helps busy women find their confidence and simplify their lives via their closets. She has always loved fashion and it became a confidence tool as she navigated a corporate finance career and motherhood. Now Amy works with other women (and men!) to create wardrobes that empower them to confidently focus on the things they are most passionate about. She offers both in-person and virtual services including closet edits, personal shopping, and personal styling.  Amy believes that confidence starts from within and a confident closet is a vessel to allowing your best self to show from the inside out.  That’s why her work starts with who her client is as a person and creates a wardrobe that serves her…her body and her life.

Amy lives with her husband, son, and daughter who are the best of friends…most of the time! Like any mom, she thinks they are just the funniest humans alive. They love getting outside (especially these days) and exploring the local metro parks. There is always music playing in their home and you can often find them having spontaneous dance parties. The kids are more into our music than kid songs with favorites including Grateful Dead, Beatles, the Band, and Johnny Cash. We also have a 3-year-old rescue pup named Mickey who they thought was a good idea to adopt a month before their daughter was born. He’s probably the most difficult child! 🤣

You can listen to my conversation with Amy McBride at the link above. Or get an overview below.

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it? 

I help people find their confidence and simplify their lives via their closet. I believe confidence comes within and our clothing is a tool to allowing our best selves shine from the inside out. Since an early age I have loved fashion and it became a confidence tool as I navigated a corporate finance career. When my kids were 1 and 2 I finally jumped into this business idea that I had been thinking about for years. If I was going to be working and away from my kids it had to be doing something that I loved and felt impactful. Crazy time to start a (side) business? Yes. But worth it. Absolutely. I run Closet Confidence on the side while working a job in corporate finance full time.

2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business? 

I think passion is so important in running your own business. There is nothing more motivating than the passion behind your why, not money, not success. And running a business is hard so you need that passion to keep you going. Specific to my business I think my greatest strength has been combining all of these aspects of myself and my experiences. My analytical business sensibility, combined with creativity and love of unique and beautiful things, and finally the way I connect with people. I think everyone deserves to feel special. I have really enjoyed being a part of each of my client’s journey to uncover how uniquely special and talented he or she really is.

3. What is the area of entrepreneurship where you could grow the most? 

I think it’s expanding my impact. While I love working with clients one on one and love it, I have often thought about expanding into working with more people. Like in a group setting or in the social media space. I know I need to think bigger if I want to grow.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself? 

Who cares what people think? I spent a lot of time worrying about what people thought about my business. Will people get what I am doing? Would my corporate colleagues think of me differently? What if people don’t like my style? Ultimately I want to serve my customers and audience in the best and most authentic way possible. I have learned that I won’t be for everyone, but that is okay.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time? 

Oh man, this is a hard one and a work in progress for me. I think the most elusive commodity in the life of a working mom is time! Early on I felt like if I wasn’t at my full time job, I should be working on my business. It burned me out and kept me from being present for that family time.

Now I set aside nights and weekends that are family only. I also think it’s important to prioritize time with your partner. I’ve also learned to leverage the times that I am most productive and creative. For me that’s the morning, so if I want to get a lot of work done I’ll get up super early before the family wakes. I think finding that balance and intentionality of time takes trial and error to figure out what really works for your family dynamic. I’ve also found that as much as it helps to schedule and block time our family needs some flexibility in that schedule.

Amy Banocy - 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

Amy Banocy – 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

Meet Entrepreneur-Speaker-Bestselling Author Amy Banocy…

Check out more “5 Questions with a Mom Entreprenuer” weekly chats here…

You can listen to my conversation with Amy Banocy at the link above. Or get an overview below.

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?

I currently have 2 business focuses, as a leader with a direct selling company and as a facilitator and teacher of my Ignite Your Passion community. 9 years ago, I was working in corporate marketing and I entered the world of entrepreneurship, as a consultant with a direct sales company, because I wanted a way out of my toxic work situation. I also wanted to be in an environment that aligned with my values and positive mindset. In 8 months, I was able to leave that toxic job. In 2 years, I hit the top 2% of the company and at 6 years, promoted again to the top 1%. I now lead a team of about 500 amazing entrepreneurs and love helping them grow their businesses.

This growth and success came at a price though, when I found myself suffering with chronic pain and fatigue about 6 years ago, which led me down a health and wellness journey. I made changes to diet, physical & mental health, self-care, and re-prioritizing my life. In doing so, I became such a happier, healthier person, for me, my team and my family. I have always had a passion for empowering women and realized that so many women around me were experiencing the same fatigue and burnout I’d dealt with and that I could help them. Now, I help hundreds of women, through teaching, speaking and writing in my IYP community and in for other organizations. I believe that happiness is a choice and that the choices we make every hour of each day, will determine our happiness factor. It completely fires me up when someone tells me that they implemented strategies I gave them and improved their life. That, is why I do what I do!

2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business? 

Motivating and leading

3. What is the area of entrepreneurship where you could grow the most? 

Taking ideas from the idea stage, to concept, to launch, faster than I do now.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself? 

Don’t ever forget why you started your business and always prioritize self care!

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time? 

I don’t know that it’s so much about balance, because that to me implies a 1:1 ratio, or equal sides. To me, it’s about prioritizing what is important, at that time or season. In my experience, there will always be times when you need to focus more on work and others when you can step back a bit. Identify those seasons and then time manage and create your schedule accordingly.

Christen Schneider – 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

Meet Digital Marketing Specialist Christen Schneider…

Subscribe & Listen on Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts

I met my fellow Ohio based mom entrepreneurs this past January at the I Heart My Life conference in San Diego. I love that I went 2, 200 miles to meet a new business buddy that lives 2 hours away and grew up just miles from where I live now. Gotta love fate. 🤣

Christen helps coaches and creative businesses like you finally get the email marketing and sales funnel you want, to reach clients you love, all in the time you actually have. She believes that if you tell the right stories to the right people at the right time, you can have a huge impact.  It’s all about knowing how to tap into how our brains learn. She was a teacher in a past job life, and it’s her purpose to show as many good business owners, leaders, and change-makers as possible how to teach people to care and build a movement that sticks.

Christen lives near Cleveland, Ohio with her three sons, a husband who she sees all day long (and still think it’s awesome 🙂 ), and a ridiculously stubborn but cute beagle. Her boys like all things space, coloring, building, games, dinosaurs, and super heroes. They also spend a lot of time outside.

Check out more “5 Questions with a Mom Entreprenuer” weekly chats here…

You can listen to my conversation with Christen Schneider at the link above. Or get an overview below.

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?

I help creative and service-based businesses get the email marketing and sales funnels they want to reach clients they love, all in the time they actually have. I actually fell in love with marketing and all the writing and tech that goes with it on accident. When I started my original business in 2012, I was a wedding dress designer! I collected a crew of other indie designers around me, ran a show in NYC for 4 years, opened a bridal store for non-traditional brides, and in the course of all of that, found myself teaching other business owners how to do their marketing too. I’m a past teacher and I have always loved tech and writing, so this is the perfect spot for me! I officially closed all wedding related businesses 2 years ago and I’ve loved it.

2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business?

I am never at a loss for ideas to try or potential solutions. I also can explain those to other people very well!

Christen Schneider - 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

3. What is the area of entrepreneurship where you could grow the most? 

Systems. Not the techie kinds, those I get. But the daily get-things-done-consistently-and-logically kind of systems that let you be a CEO instead of a scattered creative.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself?

Track your financials. Also, if you pivot, let your former audience decide for themselves if they want to follow you or stop. Your pivot might involve more of your former audience than you think it does.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?

I sort my stuff into “need quiet” and “can get done in the living room”. That makes a huge difference in maximizing my work time without holing up for 9 hours a day. Also, it’s ok to set your own version of balance and productivity. My family likes to chill together in the morning, so I typically start my work around 10 instead of super early. It works for us!

Ashton Brackett - 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

Ashton Brackett – 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

Meet mom multi-preneur Ashton Brackett…

Subscribe & Listen on Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Stitcher | Google Podcasts

I’m blown away by the ambition and focus of today’s guest for “5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur.” At just 25, she’s a mom to 2 and works on 3 entrepreneurial ventures from home. I’m tired just thinking about it. 😂

Ashton works from home as the Director of Marketing and Sales at Milrich Virtual Professionals and owns TJ Elite Contracting with her husband. She recently started Homegrown Momma to create a community for moms to cover all things motherhood. 

Ashton lives just outside St. Louis, Missouri. Her family is the definition of “on-the-go”. She and her 2 toddler boys often travel with her husband who plays competitive softball all over the US. When she is not working or traveling, she can be found surviving on coffee, in the gym, or going on daily outings with her boys. The love the local splash pad, story time, petting zoo, to a trampoline park

Check out more “5 Questions with a Mom Entreprenuer” weekly chats here…

You can listen to my conversation with Ashton at the link above. Or get an overview below.

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?

For Milrich, I am the Director of Sales and Marketing. My role is to get the word out about how we help businesses. We assign virtual assistants of all specialties to large and small corporations.

I am a co-owner of TJ Elite with my husband. We do flooring installation services all throughout Missouri. My husband handles the man power while I do all things marketing, book keeping, and handling operations.

I chose to work in both roles as I have the flexibility working from home to spend time with my family. With our frequent traveling, I can work from anywhere. So this gives me a sense of responsibility outside of mom life, while also allowing me to put my degrees to use.

2. What is your greatest strength when it comes to running your business?

Productivity and time management. In all of my roles my greatest attribute is that I have developed a true sense for keeping organized and ensuring all tasks be completed on time, at a high quality level.

Ashton Brackett - 5 Questions with a Mom Entrepreneur

3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most?

Delegating. We all know that true leaders have an innate ability to delegate mundane tasks. But unfortunately I suffer from the “I can do all” or “superwoman” syndrome.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself?

Give yourself time. You don’t have to be the best, and you don’t have to get there tomorrow, just breathe.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?

Time blocking. I am a huge advocate for the pomodoro method. So I create time blocks of when certain tasks will be done.

You can listen to my conversation with Jenelle at the link above. Or get an overview below.

1. What do you do in your business and why did you choose it?

I help women start their online boutiques. I realized that newbies were making it waaay too difficult on themselves. My signature group coaching program Online Boutique Success provides a step by step system to confidently starting their dream business and getting customers so that they can be their own boss and have more time with the ones they love.

3. What is the area entrepreneurship where you could grow the most?

Being more analytical. I’m just learning to look at the data and figure out what it all means.

4. If you were to start your business over today, what piece of advice or lesson learned would you emphasize to yourself?

I’d tell myself to be clear on who I want to serve and to create only ONE funnel to start out instead of driving myself crazy trying to do everything.

5. What is your best advice for balancing business and home life or creating intentional family time?

Prioritize your to-do list. What is the most important thing that needs to get done to make you feel proud of yourself and like your day was productive. Do that… then relax and enjoy your family. It might often mean you’re working on/planning things further out in advance so you are not pulling overnighters. It might definitely mean hiring a VA to help with things that are necessary but small tasks that will help you save time.
