New Updates and Meet the Owner: Lisa Stein

Hi Freelance Moms!

I am so proud to be a part of this community and wanted to spend a moment to say hello and tell you a little more about me and what to expect from the new

We are extremely honored to be able to assist you and want to make sure the site continues to be an extremely valuable resource for you.

I live in Texas with my two and half year old daughter named Gabriela, who is pictured with me up above, and my husband Roger. I was with IBM for 10 years working in Sales and later in Learning and Global Mentoring.  I left IBM to finish my MBA and realized I didn’t want to go back to my cubicle, 9 to 5 life.  Soon after leaving IBM,  I became a college professor and then became a parent.

After becoming a mom, my outlook on my life, my identity and the way I spent my time completely changed, which I’m sure some of you can relate. 

During the last couple of years, I became consumed with the topic of entrepreneurship and motherhood and the idea that there is a pathway for every woman and, more specifically, every mom to do what they love while raising a family.

In late 2012, I decided that could be a powerful platform to provide insights, mentoring and expert advice for women and moms who want to be their own boss and run a business they love.

This is a place you can ask questions and REALLY get thoughtful, actionable answers.

Resources And More Insights Just For You:

We are in the midst of re-launching our website to better serve you.  Coming Soon…
With our new design and updates, you will be able to experience some of the following:

  • Interviews and Case Studies – we have been honored to interview power women and moms and are excited about the future line-up of influential people that can help answer your questions and most pressing challenges.  Here is another not-to-miss example.  These are women that have reached success through all kinds of interesting paths and we dissect what we can really learn from their experiences.
  • New, relevant and well-researched solutions, tips and recommendations to your everyday needs as a women and mom business owner.
  • Networking and Event Resources that are continually updated.
  • A warm and active community forum where people are currently getting great tips, mentoring, free market research and answers to their everyday questions.

We will also begin to provide:

  • “Ask an Expert” – We meet with experts on specific topics relevant and timely to your business.  The experts we talk to are people who have actually studied and researched the topic and have no other motivation but to solve problems and their own curiosities.
  • “Women Entrepreneurs Hustling From the Heart” mentoring – We interview women and mom entrepreneurs who have reached success through all kinds of interesting paths and who mean business. We get their insights on starting and running a business so you can have a head start on yours. Here, you get an opportunity to hear their inner thoughts and get advice on lessons learned, challenges they faced and systems they use to start and run their business.
