I’ve told the brief version of my story here a few times. Of how I started Modern Mama in early 2008 in Edmonton, as a way to get moms out of the house, and start a small business I could do from home while raising my daughters.
Fast forward nine years, and it is a business I can still run from home.
I pick up my girls from school every day, I volunteer, and I attend field trips regularly.
I’m pretty happy to be able to say mine is a business that contracts other moms, providing them with income, and has several more moms running the same business as licensees.
Plus, I’m able to raise my girls, be at home enjoy dinner with my family, and travel occasionally.
So I wanted to talk about how my business makes money because I feel like every business has to pivot, change ‘channels’ and refocus along the way, to be successful. I think that if my story can help even one other mom running her business, it’s worth sharing.
What does Modern Mama do?
We have been a mom blog, a print magazine, and a moms group with live events (which grows to other cities via a licensing model).
However, we’ve re-focused this year to focus on online revenue even more. ‘Blogging’ has surpassed licensing and event revenue and we know there is an opportunity for all moms to be doing the same.
This is why we created the Modern Mama City Blogger program.
The program means that we want YOU to run Modern Mama City Blog in YOUR city.
Every City should have a Modern Mama City Blog
- list local resources for new moms and parents
- show moms in our cities what’s happening for families in their city
- introduce local business to local moms
- inject our personality into our online presence
- support community
- help moms
