I love a happy ending – don’t you? Nothing better than a feel good story – right? Especially one with a giveaway!
So, a little bit about what I do at BacknGrooveMom is encourage other moms who either have taken a career break for one reason or another to pursue their passion when the time is right or help moms who want to create entrepreneurial dreams. Sometimes, a slight bit of encouragement or assistance in working through an action plan is all a fellow woman needs to go after a new idea.
Many of us moms work at one job or career while building something in addition, and let’s not forget the job of being a mom/wife/partner, too. Needless to say there are a lot of moving parts, but nothing that we cannot handle. It makes life invigorating (ok – sometimes it does).
I will cut to the chase. Around a year ago, an old friend came to me with an idea for a teen jewelry concept that was pretty unique. Leaving behind a career in marketing with 2 young kids, this friend knew that financing this project was going to be hard. i hope this doesn’t come as a BIG shock, but inventing is costly – ha!
Anyway, Cindy and I brainstormed about her idea and where, how, and when to gain traction, and then I introduced Cindy to Stella and Dot. At the time, I recently heard Jessica Herrin, founder of Stella and Dot, speak on the company and its very unique perspective on helping women achieve greatness. I was inspired with Herrin’s tenacity and passion, and also quite overwhelmed with her desire to really allow her reps to make money and set them up for success.
Needless to say, Cindy went on to become a Stella and Dot Stylist on the fast-track while moving her product forward. Cindy’s product is quickly gaining traction in her local community, and I expect big things soon from her including a second product on the way. In the meantime, Cindy has completely fallen in love with Stella and Dot, and in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and being a sponsor of my 10K campaign for early mammogram detection, Cindy is offering a $25 gift certificate to shop anything Stella & Dot with her.
All you have to do is – leave a comment (in the PINK section not Facebook Connect) and let us know a dream of yours as a mom. One lucky winner will be picked on 10/17/2012 at noon.
***Also – Cindy is giving away more $25 gift certificates when you shop the Stella & Dot Breast Cancer Awareness Collection with her, you will automatically be entered to win.
So, hurry up and comment – what ya’ waiting for girl?
