The Official Goodbye

Happy Back-to-School season, MOBsters!

As a child, I always loved back-to-school season. The shiny new school supplies, the anticipation of seeing all of my classmates again and having new teachers. I have always looked forward to transitions, change, the unknown – a trait that serves many entrepreneurs well.

Now, as I prepare my own children for this annual back-to-school transition, I, too, prepare for a big one of my own: it is time to say goodbye to The Power MOB.

As you can imagine, it is a decision that did not come easily (that’s what all business owners say, right?), and one that has been nearly a year in the making.

I know many of you will have questions, and I wish I had time to answer them all. I’ve started an FAQ page that will live on the website for a while, with more FAQs being added soon.

When I created The Power MOB in early 2006, I simply wanted to create a space where we could connect and share openly as both moms and business owners. A place where we never had to pretend we were just one or the other. I had no clue that in five years, we would help connect, support, educate and inform hundreds of mom entrepreneurs. We’ve bonded, formed an incredible community, and been there for one another to help our professional as well as our family lives flourish. We’ve been there to celebrate many births – of businesses and babies – and supported each other through deaths, divorces, business changes and closures, parenting challenges, and daily ups and downs.

As much as I will miss this business baby of mine, the part I will miss the most is all of you. The Power MOB is like my extended family, and I cherish each of you so much.

It has been a truly incredible five years. THANK YOU. My hope is that you will all continue to connect, collaborate, and grow together, as moms and as business owners. That you will all remember to believe in yourselves each and every moment of the day, as I believe in each of you. You each have such unlimited potential and power, and I wish you all continued success in your professional and personal lives. Follow your instincts, pursue your passions, and live your dreams like only YOU can.

Thank you for everything, MOBsters. Please feel free to connect with me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. I look forward to our next chapter together, outside of The Power MOB.

Sincerely,

MOM-E of the Month: Jen Barth

Jen Barth Big Small Brands MOM-E of the Month

MOM-E of the Month (September 2011): JEN BARTH
Owner, Big Small Brands

Kids:
Marley and Spencer, my identical (yet nothing alike!) 4 and “almost-a-half” year old daughters

Brief biz description:
Big Small Brands is a small business branding and marketing firm. I coach and consult clients on brand and communications development, marketing, and revenue generation.

Target audience:
Early-stage, or evolving, businesses who need to better understand target audiences, define or re-position their brand, or launch a new product or service. I also recently also launched a new service to help recruit and train part-time Marketing interns and assistants, so I’m also starting to work with businesses who have these areas covered, and just need some help with brand management and marketing support.

Job held before you started this biz:
EVP, Marketing, Business Development, and Client Services for Kelton Research, and VP Business Development for Siegel + Gale, a global strategic branding firm

Initial Start-Up Costs:
Very minimal! I’m pretty scrappy and wanted to grow into my business, and my brand voice, first before investing a ton of resources. I spent $100 to register my business, $40 on a WordPress theme, and a bit more than I care to admit at Storables on fun, punchy office supplies- I’m firmly opposed to plain, dull folders! Since then I’ve invested slowly in other areas, such as my new creative identity, and a part-time assistant who has truly become a lifesaver over the summer over the summer, when I want to spend as much time as I can with my kids, while still supporting my ongoing client work.

Initial Funding Source(s):
A small commission check I had gotten from my former job. It was significant to me to spend it in this way because while the amount of money wasn’t huge, I had to travel away from my family a few times to close the deal. I liked the idea of spending this money to invest in a new career direction that would not force me to make that choice again. I officially launched my business on February 28, 2010 — my birthday. Best gift ever!

First “woohoo!” business moment:
Realizing that I genuinely like and respect each of my clients, both professionally and personally. This may sound simple — and hokey — but it’s taken awhile to get back to this place in my career. Early on, I worked with incredible people who I loved as colleagues, and as friends. One of them ended up being my husband, in fact! But, as I got into more senior leadership roles in my corporate sales & marketing roles, that wasn’t as realistic. And while dealing with difficult (and sometimes downright awful) personalities is one of my strong suits, I’m thrilled to report I haven’t really had to use these skills since I became an entrepreneur!

Biggest Mistake-Turned-Teaching-Moment:
I made a rookie move of printing too many business cards — with an identity I hadn’t thought through — before I’d given much thought to how I would be positioning my brand and service offerings. It took me forever to use them up, and I hated them! I see many new businesses make this mistake too. There’s nothing wrong with starting with a small run of simple, un “designed” cards to give you a chance to think about, and experiment with different ways to communicate who you are and what you offer. You can tell pretty quickly if you’ve gotten it right, or if it needs to evolve. I transitioned to my current identity a few months ago and love it!

Like so many solo-preneurs, I also resisted outsourcing anything at all for a bit too long. I got to a period last year where I was completely drained, and my work quality — and my health — were beginning to suffer. When I finally began seeking support from a few outside resources, my productivity — and passion for taking on new challenges — soared. I realize now the importance of focusing on what i’m great at, and getting help in the areas I’m not!

How you feel about competition in your industry:
I say Bring it on: businesses today need all the help they can get, and we all bring something different to the table and there’s room for us all! I think if you focus on being true to who you are what you offer, do great work, and continue to challenge yourself and grow your skills, the idea of competition is not a huge issue. I know and respect several fellow marketing consultants who I would happily refer business to if a project wasn’t a fit for me, or if I didn’t have the bandwidth. In a town like ours, that’s pretty common, I think. I did have a competitor attend one of my workshops recently and blatantly announce to everyone that he was there to steal my ideas and take my prospects. I think he was trying to be funny- but I saw him actually do it at the end, and it didn’t come off very well. Being genuine matters.

Greatest source of clients for your biz:
Relationships, relationships, relationships. Luckily, I’ve been a strong networker throughout my career so I had many to draw from early on. But, since I was a newcomer to Portland when I started my business, I had to work harder than most to build my local network in the initial months of launching my business. Even though it means missing a few breakfasts and dinners with my kids every now and then, I know it’s important to do, and I genuinely love connecting with new people.

That said, networking isn’t something you can expect to get immediate business from; one of my first bosses used to tell me “that’s why it’s called net-working!” it’s about creating genuine and long-term relationships and building trust, which takes time on both sides. We live in a great community for doing this!

Your inspiration:
Fellow mom entrepreneurs- I love my time with fellow PowerMOB-ers, and attending last year’s conferences was a serious game-changer for me in how I approach my business and in many of the relationships I made on that one day. I have many friends who are amazing career women, and many who are incredible moms. But it takes a rare breed to do it both well. I love knowing so many women who do! Time spent with fellow PowerMOB-ers is always an inspiration!

#1 piece of business advice everyone should follow:
Trust your instincts; find your voice and use it clearly. I recently had to talk 2 clients out of going in a direction they felt quite strongly about, but I know in my heart, and in my professional opinion, wasn’t the right one for them. I took a risk in confronting it both times, and got pushback from them both a few times. But I had to remind myself that they hired me for my expertise, not to “yes” them to death. They both expressed gratitude when they recognized that we made the right decision — together — and I know if I hadn’t, I wouldn’t be doing my job. But it can be tricky; it’s way easier to be the “yes”-woman!

#1 sanity-saving tip for work/life balance:
The idea of balance is one I’ve had to re-define since becoming an entrepreneur; for me, it works best to focus on whatever I’m doing at the moment, versus trying to multi-task like crazy, which never ends up feeling very balanced. I love this line from a recent interview I read with fellow working mom Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook: “Don’t worry so much about balance. Work hard, Stick with what you like, and don’t let go.”

Thank you to the PowerMOB for giving me such a great community of women who feel the same way!

Top Ten Reasons You Should Hire Entrepreneurs

I’ve been quiet on this blog lately. I’ve been busy working — for myself, and then recently as many of you know, I’ve also been working for the (wo)man.

Instead of writing a lengthy post about why I know I made the right decision and how oh so much I love my job, I’ve realized the post that will most benefit readers of this blog is one about how entrepreneurs can make the best employees you’ll ever hire for your own business. In my role as Regional Sales Manager for Plum District Portland, I’ve also been busy hiring District Consultants who, like me, have an entrepreneurial calling. My team is comprised of 13 women, all moms, many who also run their own businesses in addition to working for me at Plum District. As my team and this company grows, I learn new benefits every day from hiring entrepreneurs.

Top Ten Reasons You Should Hire Entrepreneurs

1. We will work harder than anyone else. As entrepreneurs, we’re used to working crazy hours for our own businesses. We know that business doesn’t stop at 5pm, but is an ongoing, never-ending journey. Most of us are used to, at one time or another as business owners, being the janitor, secretary, courier, production assistant — we aren’t above doing any job that needs to be done in order for success to happen.

2. We have mastered efficiency and can get the work done faster than most others. When building our own businesses, we learned the art getting things done on time. As an entrepreneur, you quickly learn that time truly IS money, and we learned quickly that the best way not to lose money was to focus and NOT waste a moment of precious business time.

3. We’re the most creative problem solvers you will find. No successful entrepreneur has ever met an obstacle they couldn’t overcome. In fact, I think most of us, by some sick twist of nature, secretly LOVE being forced to create solutions to unpredictable problems. We face challenges of all kinds every single day, often several times a day, one after another, and our job as business owner is to quickly and effectively create solutions to those challenges. We are, by nature, creative problem solvers.

4. We are risk takers, and are not afraid of failure because we understand there is always something to gain. Entrepreneurs take risks every day and believe that the biggest failure is in the act of NOT doing. I’ve made many mistakes and I don’t regret any of them because I learned from each and every one of them; like most business owners, my mistakes have made my businesses better, stronger. Entrepreneurs can do the same for other people’s businesses.

5. We understand that success must be quantified as well as qualified. Listen, I may be a poet, a crafter, a painter, a tree-hugging lover of words and books and daydreams, but I also have this somewhat secret passion for data, spreadsheets and reports. As a business owner, I hold the creative side of business on a pedestal, but I also understand that the beauty and altruism of any business will vanish without data to support its existence. In my years of working with hundreds of small businesses, I’ve learned that the majority of businesses fade because the numbers just aren’t there. If you hire a great entrepreneur, you’ll hire someone who gets how to make the numbers work in sometimes crazy circumstances.

6. We have a lot of energy & we’re pro-active. I’ve never met a passive business owner, and I can’t imagine it would be a trait a successful entrepreneur could ever possess. Each day, we have to fight for our spot in the marketplace and there is never a moment when we can rest on our laurels. The very definition of a go-getter to me is an entrepreneur.

7. We are more flexible than anyone you will ever meet. The whole company messaging just changed because of a last minute board decision? No problem! We can manage a new campaign in one afternoon. Monthly targets have changed due to an unexpected shift in consumer spending? No worries! We’ll have a revised strategy and new financial model by tomorrow. We don’t just go-with-the-flow, we entrepreneurs make the sudden changes that we have learned to expect in our own businesses work for us when we work for someone else too.

8. We can multitask like no other. If you’re looking to hire a mom or dad entrepreneur, then I think you’ve hit the jackpot: my fellow parent entrepreneurs not only have experience juggling running their businesses but also running their households, their social lives, their kids’ social lives, and so much more. I could tell you that we secretly have 8 arms to get things done, or that we have the power to stop time, but really what it comes down to is the simple skill of prioritizing.

9. We tend to make work fun. Most of us wouldn’t do what we do if we didn’t love it, if it didn’t make us happy. I have to say, I love working with and around other entrepreneurs. Talk about good times! A positive attitude and happy spirit are KEY to running a successful business, so hiring an entrepreneur is almost always a sure bet that you’ll be adding some fun to the office.

10. We won’t let you down. Above all else, we like to succeed and help others succeed, and we know how much rests on your own shoulders as the owner of your own company. We get it. We won’t let you down because we know what it’s like when others let us down in our businesses.

There are of course some challenges when hiring entrepreneurs, but for the most part, I have found that hiring fellow business owners for my own team and for my other companies has been an incredibly positive experience. I learn the most from fellow entrepreneurs, and as a business owner, that should always be at the top of the hiring checklist: can this person add more to the business than I can add myself? Can I learn from this person and grow? Our businesses will only grow if we do too. So go hire yourself an entrepreneur today!

Answering your questions on Non-Disclosure Agreements

“When discussing my business venture with professionals in the field, are there general guidelines as to when I should use a Non Disclosure Agreement or Non Compete Agreement to protect my business concept?”

A Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) is an agreement where the parties agree to maintain the information they obtain as a result of the relationship confidential from all others. It may even include a provision for monetary damages if that agreement is breached. NDA’s are commonly used in many relationships such as employment, when talking with potential purchasers of your business, or even investors.

A Non-Compete Agreement (NCA) is an agreement most commonly found in employment agreements with high-level employees. Generally, the employer wants to ensure that the employee will not open shop and compete against the employer using information that s/he obtained while working with the employer.

Depending on the nature of the discussions with other professionals and how detailed you will get, an NDA is a great idea. However, before you get so far as needing an NDA, be sure to properly vet the other professional to ensure they are not likely to breach it.

Keep sending in your questions!!

How it works: You send me your questions to Sarah@BusinessLawPDX.com and I will answer them in the order received. I will then turn your question into a blog post (keeping your identity generic, of course) and respond by email to let you know that your question has been answered.

Disclaimer: Keep in mind that any questions I answer are intended as general information to raise some issues for you to discuss with your lawyer. Therefore, such communication does not create an attorney-client relationship. It is always best to consult an attorney if you want a specific question answered. End disclaimer.

Top Five Tips for Finding Clients in a New City

Post from Tuesday, a little slow here, even with sitting (it hurts even to sit in computer position).  Not a fan of RSI/Tendonitis but am of Dragon Dictate. I was just able to do the following with the dictation software, enjoy! (ps it takes some getting used to but it rocks. I highly recommend it.)

So, Here are the Top Five Tips for Finding Clients in a New City!

1) Hang out where they hang out. In other words, hang out where your ideal clients hang out (what vibration, what level of clientele do you want). Though I am still battling RSI, I met a potential new client yesterday hanging out in her deli in Beverly Hills. We started talking and lo and behold, she has three other very cool businesses she might need marketing and design help with. Ta-da~

2) Ask  someone you trust in your city re: potentials….ask your PR friend or Financial Advisor in that city what organizations there are in your new abode…I did that a couple weeks ago and my PR girlfriend gave me a great idea: she’d help me with a list of PR agencies in LA…then I’d call to schedule visits with them to show them my portfolio. Getting after it!

3) DO be a busy-body…hang out (work) at Starbucks or the local Mom n Pop coffee shop. Talk, talk and talk some more…even if you seem like the girl who has had too much caffeine ;) Networking costs.

4) Work with a coach, social media guru or other from that area! It might cost you some bucks but the networking here is invaluable! You will get some renewed inspiration and energy but also begin to meet the coaches other clients (I am currently on a coaching call with ten others every two weeks with a coach from LA…great!)

5) Take this time to be VERY pumped up about what you do and what you offer. Energy and genuine enthusiasm go a long way!

Like the song says…

As many of you know, I am a Texas gal. While I may have lost the accent (and some of the pig-headed attitudes), I still love me some twangy music. As I was thinking of my fellow MOB pals and what I might write about today, I heard this song strumming through my brain:

“You got to know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em,. know when to walk away and know when to run. You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table. There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealin’s done.”

Yep, I just quoted “The Gambler” by Kenny Rodgers! I tend more towards Willie or Lucinda than Kenny but he does have something relevant to say to us.

Your business is always in some part of a cycle, just like a card game.

When you are shuffling the cards, you are likely beginning something new and it is time to be open and patient, waiting to see how the hand is dealt. Once you have your cards, you have more clarity and only then is the time right to begin strategizing.

If you are like me, you might get stuck in the strategy phase, feeling compelled to constantly play your cards, to keep up with the pace of entrepreneurship. However, knowing when to fold or toss your cards in and re-shuffle is important as well.

Recently I had that very experience. I am writing a self-growth book for women about self-nurture and I was busy in the active phase of writing, trying to ignore a deep feeling that I need to pause and re-shuffle (research).

I finally listened, took off work for a few days and headed out to Breitenbush Hot Springs with my laptop and research materials. And just as my gut knew all along, my idea re-bloomed with even more clarity.

I encourage you to do the same. Know when to hold ‘em – or fold ‘em. Pay careful attention to what phase your business or current venture is in and remember to let go as needed.

MOM Entrepreneur {MOM-E} of the Month: Jesse Remer Henderson

MOM-E of the Month for July 2011
Jesse Remer Henderson, LLCE, CD PCD (DONA)
Owner, Mother Tree Birth Services

Kids, names, ages:
Two boys: Dashiell (age 7), Juna (age 4) plue two doggies and two bunnies

Brief Biz Description:
Birth and Postpartum Doula, Childbirth Educator and Birth Counselor

Target Audience:
Supporting women and their families in the childbearing year with doula care, birth and parenting classes

Job held before you started in this biz:
I was the marketing and events director for the Stephanie Inn and Surfsand Resort in Cannon Beach. Followed with the Manager of the Performance Center, a local leadership Think Tank and consulting group at PSU.

Initial Start-Up Costs:
About $1000 for training and marketing materials.  I bribed my husband, a graphic designer, with play tickets and a few extra date nights to provide all the marketing materials and website.

Initial Funding Source(s):
Savings and a slow transition from my previous employment.

First “woohoo!” business moment:
The day I realized I was getting paid to hold babies!!

Biggist Mistake-Turned-Teaching Moment:
Thinking as a solo small business owner that I had to be the one to do it all. I’ve gone from wearing every hat including marketing, doula, coordinator, receptionist, bookkeeper (not well I might add) to slowly realizing that there are amazing women whose talents way suprass my own and finding ways to welcome them onto my team.

How you feel about competition in your industry:
I believe in the abundance of birth. There are thousands of women who need so much support and unique care there should be any lack of business for any of us.  If there is a lack, it is usually because we are too busy or not open emotionally to be available to women at that time or we need to spend more time with outreach. There are women every day getting pregnant who need our services who don’t know that a doula exists. Their needs are unique. It’s about finding the right fit. I can only support so many women personally in this lifetime and each woman deserves the best fit for her. I know I can’t be that for every woman.

Greatest source for clients for you biz:
Doctors, midwives and fellow healing practitioners–the community.

Your inspiration:
The women and their families. When I get tired and feel like I’ve been saying the same things over and over and would rather sleep the night and then I get the birth call, it only takes a few minutes with a woman in need before I am rejuvenated. It is truly amazing!  These women give me so much.  It is definitely a mutual exchange.

#1 piece of business advice everyone should follow:
Take time to listen to your intuition.  It’s a far better guide than the ego, although the ego doesn’t always agree. My best inspirations and decisions have come from this place. It often makes the work effortless.

#1 sanity-saving tip for work/life balance:
My regular sanity saver is a walk in nature.  I find the solace of nature to be my reset button.  Alone, with my boys and dogs or with a group of friends — it is all good.

One Slightly Out of Shape MOBster, Barre 3 Challenge: Week 2

This week ushered in the first official week of summer for me. I took the week off planning to enjoy the first full week of summer with my kiddos and attend my Barre 3 classes at leisure. Normally, I have to squeeze my classes in before or after work, so this week I was looking forward to taking a few midday classes so my evenings would once again be family filled. However, I completely underestimated how difficult it would be fit my Barre 3 commitment in this week while on “staycation”. I found it easiest and completely necessary after “summering” and entertaining my kids all day to continue with my evening class routine (serenity now).

This past week, via the ReplenishPDX “detox” created by the amazing Andrea Nakayama, I eliminated gluten from my diet. After detoxing from sugar last week, I felt energized, light, clear-headed and constantly full from all of the super delicious recipes Andrea has provided.

Andrea begins each week with a tele-seminar specifically targeting the item of exclusion (sugar, gluten or dairy) jammed-packed with nutritional facts, information and preemptively answers all of our questions before we even ask them. I truly appreciate the thoughtfulness to her approach, and I love that when a craving comes my way, I can logically squelch the impulse by recalling what I have learned. I tell people that Andrea is a magician…she has created amazing recipes that leave your stomach flat after eating (I didn’t know that was possible).

While in the Barre 3 studio this week, I struck up many conversations with my fellow “challengers”. Most of us were halfway through the challenge and feeling pretty terrific. Nearly everyone I chatted with is seeing (and feeling) results from attending on average five classes per week. I am noticing things on my body shift, firm and lift (and a couple of things shrink…things that we as ladies do not want to have shrink).

As I sit here typing, I have just attended my 12th Barre 3 class in 17 days and I enjoyed the most delicious dinner; broiled ginger lemon fish, quinoa and artichokes…AND my stomach is still flat!

Bring on week 3!

Wax on, wax off…in business

Do you remember that famous “wax on, wax off” scene in the original Karate Kid when Daniel realizes that Mr. Miyagi has forced him to wax cars and paint fences in order to learn the basic skills of karate?

It is touching to see young Daniel realize that his hard (and frustrating) work has actually paid off and he can defend himself!

I had the realization last week at Jen Barth’s insight-inspiring business branding workshop for the PowerMob that I need to revisit the foundation of my business. After 8 years in business in Portland, OR (and several years in business in another state previously) I sometimes get lazy about going back to the basics.

I got an email last week from an e-marketing consulting requesting permission to use my Web site for a class she was teaching on SEO. She congratulated me for holding the top Google spot for “Life Coach, Portland, Oregon.” I said “Yes, if you send me the report you are using for the class!”

I am taking the insights I got from Jen’s workshop and the very detailed report from the marketing strategist and implementing some simple, but hopefully profound changes in how I engage with potential clients through my brand.

And, I am signed up to take Jen’s class on “Making your content count” to clarify my brand story. Join me!

How can you revisit the basics in your business to clarify and re-energize your own marketing strategy?

On the move (not really)

I’ve been writing posts about being on the move, staying on the move…grooving with change as I basically have been doing these last months since back from our two yr stint in Guadalajara, Mexico. Funny because last night I had a dream we were back in Amsterdam and it got me so excited…

But I’ll be staying put for a while.

Today I’m writing slowly (and shortly) and not so much about being on the move as about accepting when you can’t.

I’ve had severe tendonitis in both arms for three months and it has led me to take a full on break from 85% of my computer activities (sigh)…it has led me to buy Dragon Dictate (which I have yet to learn) and has me in doctor’s offices 3x a week. Noone can figure out why it’s as bad in both arms. Physical therapy doesn’t work…

So as I type a very short post for you all I say just a couple things…we all want to move and move fast and get as much done as possible (what I love about myself but now also see that I caused major burned out…on the writing of my book, on my yoga teacher training, design work etc). . . listen to your bodies.

Your business will thank you for a half hour break here and there…or, if you’re in a funk or stuck, a break will do you (and your emotional and physical and mental) body good too.

I’m learning to be slower now than ever before, even slower than right after I had Nolan. IT IS SUCH A LEARNING PROCESS. I am grateful for the learning, I really am, I do need to tune into what it feels like, really feels like, to slow it down a (big) notch. (speaking of, will tell you all how learning Dragon Dictate goes)…

…time to seek change so that I can better. We all deserve to be kinder to ourselves.
