Why Do It? Selling Bodies By The Hour, of Course.

Well, there are sometimes we just do it for the scenery, as in when we emcee the annual Pink Tie Gala Bachelor Auction.

I love it when being a blogger meets being charitable meets meeting über-cool people like Susan Groves who heads up this amazing Pink Tie Gala enterprise for Susan G. Komen each year.

It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

Power of a (Blogging) Team

There is no way that our little home-grown blog could’ve made it to 150,000+ unique visitors without a team. Often I find myself between my two careers asking myself the question above only to fall back on the soothing reminder that there’s an amazing Richmondmom.com team here to support me.

When I first started the blog, I had neither the revenue nor the knowledge/experience to guide a team as I was still learning.

Over time, with flexibility, sponge-like process absorption on their parts and support all-around, we’ve grown our team of freelancers to 10+ and built a blogging powerhouse.

People ask me all the time, “how do you do it all?” I don’t. I’m thankful for my team. They hasten Friday’s arrival every week.

Sacrifice for Life

by Kate W. Hall

I’m re-posting this as a reminder that entrepreneurial life is a wave we ride–rolling back occasionally into full-time “9-5″ is not an admission to failure but a part of the plan to keep our dreams alive.

Sacrifice for Life.
