Small Business Saturdays
So you’re thinking about becoming an entrepreneur. Congratulations! Here’s how to not make the same mistakes I did on my mompreneur journey.
We love our amazing local moms, and this Mompreneur turned a family frustration into a business that helps others. See what’s so amazing about Stacey Schlaman!
New parents have to be among the most exhausted people on Earth. How many times have you wished you could clone yourself, grow and extra set of hands, or get more hours in the day? Stressed out moms everywhere now have some relief they can outsource!
Being the parent of an autistic child can be downright lonely at times. It can be hard to find support, and even harder to find good resources to help. Parents oftentimes find themselves without an advocate. That was one of the reasons Lindsay Chapman, director of Madison Behavior Therapy, recently opened a clinic on Hughes […]
If you or your baby has sensitive skin, you know there’s few things more uncomfortable as a painful, itchy rash. Diaper rash & skin irritation has plagued many local households, and when baby’s not happy, NOBODY’S happy. My daughter has had a TERRIBLE rash and raw bottom since the first day she was born. [My […]
I love telling success stories for Small Business Saturdays, and thankfully, this one has a happy ending. Twenty years ago, after a terrible accident that claimed the the lives of both his teacher and his friend, Joseph Alexander felt compelled to keep the martial arts teachings of Sensei Berry Grizzard going. Mr. Grizzard was a […]
Holidays are all about family. Big family feasts, long visits with Grandma and Grandpa and all the while the kids are running around the house getting into trouble with their cousins. If your family lives close, most of the organizing revolves around arranging the menu and determining who is bringing what. But, if you or […]
As evidenced by all the holiday open houses and craft shows happening this weekend alone, there is no shortage of men and women interested in trying to make a living selling their wares. But one thing that sets the North Alabama Holiday Craft Expo (November 10th at the Roundhouse Depot) apart is that this group […]
Anyone who’s ever planned a birthday party or baby shower understands that the devil can be in the details. It doesn’t matter if it’s Baby’s First Birthday or a Sweet Sixteen soiree – all those details add up and can quickly become so overwhelming you might be tempted to throw up your hands and call […]
All the pack rats reading this raise your hand. Is there anyone out there without a hand up? Saving EVERYTHING is kind of de rigueur for mommyhood. It starts with the outfit your baby wore home from the hospital, their first pair of shoes, their first lost tooth, and before you know it you have […]
Entrepreneurship can strike in many different ways, but the best instances are when a personal passion becomes a livelihood. Andrea DiLibero taught pre-kindergarten for more than 15 years. During that time in the classroom, she often wrote and illustrated her own unpublished stories to help educate her students and make their learning experiences more fun. […]
Today’s Small Business Saturday featured business almost sounds too good to be true. Anyone who’s ever planned a Disney vacation knows how dizzying all the options can be: To Meal Plan or not to Meal Plan? What’s the difference between a Park Hopper ticket and a regular park ticket? Where’s the best place to interact […]
I first met the Guerrero family at the Seriously Fun Street Fair earlier this year. It was a hot summer day and I had just finished setting up the Rocket City Mom tent. Families were starting to arrive and stop at each booth – pretty soon I was chatting with moms and dads and noticing […]
Monica Yother’s business, My Horses Art, is more than just a way to help pay the bills. It’s a way for her to pass on entrepreneurship to her daughter and to give back to a cause that is dear to them both. Yother began her latest artistic business venture with her ten-year-old daughter in January […]
With the wealth of information available now about healthy eating, living, and raising a family, more people are exploring natural remedies for minor ailments. Massage therapist Nancy Ramirez found this to be the case when she and her husband moved to Alaska in 2007. It was there she discovered Young Living Essential Oils, and eventually […]
Today’s Small Business Saturday is especially for TEEN entrepreneurs, as well as their employers. Maybe you’ve decided to enlist the summer babysitting services of the neighbor girl down the street, or you finally want to schedule a regular date night with your spouse and need a reliable sitter. Or maybe your own daughter or son […]

And finally; do you want to be hugely successful in your business pursuits? If you answered yes to any of those questions, then I am humbly honored to […]

A decade ago, the activity options for families with younger kids wasn’t near as vast as they are now. Huntsville has experienced a boom in businesses, parks, and greenspaces that young families can enjoy while raising their kids. One of the first of these businesses on the scene was Jump!Zone, an indoor inflatable paradise for […]
