Why More Moms Are Becoming Entrepreneurs

In this month’s issue of Powerline, I had the chance to write about some surprising statistics regarding motherhood and entrepreneurship. Just in case you missed this article in print, check it out here on the ma Blog! Don’t forget to discover more informative articles in the digital version of the Powerline Magazine.

The face of the working mother is changing. In the 1970s, only 38 percent of mothers were a part of the work force. Now, 74 percent of moms have joined the working world. Where many women in this demographic once turned to office jobs to earn an income, these days more and more mothers are discovering the advantages of starting their own home-based businesses.

Pinterest Part Two: Making the Most of Your Pinterest Account

What to pin?
Once you’ve created your account, and you’ve perused the homepage of items selected for you, you might get the urge to repin a few things on your own boards. And after a few (hundred) clicks, you may ask yourself “What, exactly, should I pin?” The simple answer to this question is, “Anything you like!” The more complicated answer (you knew there would be one) is that your Pinterest account should serve a purpose. That doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it. But you should approach your Pinterest account by asking yourself: What do you want to DO with Pinterest?

It could be “Find ideas to redecorate my house and pull them together in one place,” “create an inspiration board for my creative pursuits,” “create a visual shopping list” or even “show people what I like.” Or, for our UFOs, “showcase what I do for Market America to potential clients.” By keeping your purpose in mind, you can better organize your boards and make your pinning serve your goals more effectively.

What You Need to Know About Facebook’s Timeline

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, by now you’ve probably seen most of (if not all of) your Facebook friends switching over to the new Timeline. Even if you yourself have already made the switch, there are some important features (including privacy and security) that you may need to address.

Timeline, in case you haven’t yet noticed, is a brand new layout for your Facebook page. Instead of a resume-style profile with one image in the left, you will now see a much more visually-styled profile with the opportunity for plenty of creative customization. The cover photo, a large open space perfect for expressing yourself, heads up the page and sets the tone for your entire profile. Read More

Utilizing Twitter to Grow Your Business is Easier Than You Think

A couple of months ago, I wrote an article for the Powerline Magazine outlining a step-by-step guide for using Twitter to find success as an entrepreneur. Over the past few weeks I have been working diligently to grow my own personal Twitter following, while additionally putting those best practices in place for the Market America account. In a short amount of time, I have seen tremendous results, and I think you will too if you follow these simple tweeting tactics:

 

1. Jump in feet first. Twitter is simple and it’s free, so getting started is as easy as the click of mouse. Find twitter.com to create a personal [or business] profile. Read More

Pinterest Fix! Making sure items you pin link directly back to your portal and not SHOP.COM

Many UFOs are having the same issue: pinning directly from their portal does NOT direct people back to their portal, but to the SHOP.COM site, thus taking away the sale they would have made. This is caused by the fact that the images are not hosted in your portal specifically, but on the SHOP.COM website. As of right now, the fix requires one extra step, but it will ensure that you are credited with each sale made from your Pinterest pins!

To fix the issue, when you pin from your portal, follow these easy steps:

  1. Use the “Pin It!” button installed in your browser*, and select the image of the item you wish to PIN.
  2. Read More

Using Persistence and Accountability to Find Success as an Entrepreneur

In a company with a track record of success, there is great opportunity for each member to individually succeed. That success, however, hinges on each individual’s willingness to work for it, and work hard. With a pin level of Professional Coordinator, Heather Pilibosian has obviously put in a great deal of work to get where she is.

Recently, we had the opportunity to interview her, find out what drives her as an UnFranchise® Owner, and learn how she found her success.

How long have you been with Market America and what inspired you to become an UnFranchise Owner?

I am 34 years young and a graduate of The University of New Hampshire with a Bachelor’s Degree from the Whittemore School of Business and Economics.  I always told myself, in order to secure my financial future; I needed to be my own boss.  Having watched my parents pioneer their UnFranchise Business years prior, I always knew the company was both viable and profitable.  I began building my UnFranchise Business part-time.  Within the first year my part-time UnFranchise income matched what I was earning with my full-time job!*  At that point, I realized I was happily unemployable, and fired my boss!
