I was so extremely excited when Beth Anne told me she’d do this interview with me! And still, I can’t believe I got the chance to interview her! Beth Anne is the Mom Boss and her biz, Brilliant Business Moms, has been a huge resource for me in starting my business as well as a HUGE encouragement as I grow my business. I personally use her planner and am currently enrolled in her Pinterest course – both products I love and highly recommend. I look up to her and strive to have a business that is as successful and positively impacting as hers is.
I am pleased to introduce to you, Beth Anne Schwamberger | Mom Boss
Why did you start your shop? What inspired you?
I started Brilliant Business Moms with my sister Sarah in June, 2014. It really started out of a need we had: we were scrappy Mamas trying to grow our Etsy shop and blog, and we wanted to learn from other Moms who were running successful businesses.
We started as a podcast (a great excuse to get to chat with other Mamapreneurs!) and have grown into a thriving community of Mamapreneurs and brilliant women who want to grow a business on the side.
I am so passionate about helping other women succeed in business, and helping them do it without neglecting the rest of their lives or feeling stressed and burned out.
What would you tell other female entrepreneurs?
Female Entrepreneurs, you need to BELIEVE in yourself! I know people are telling you this all the time, but trust me, the way you act shows the world that you don’t truly believe you can do it. Quit believing the lies that say you have to get permission from someone else to do what you want. Put yourself out there and ask for what you want. And remember, mistakes, failure, and rejection are part of the game. Get REALLY comfortable with these things, because as you grow, they don’t just magically disappear – you just keep on failing in the right direction (and hopefully you get a few things right too!)
Along with this advice: know that you learn the most by DOING. Please don’t ever wait for things to be perfect. (Last I checked, none of us had this one nailed down!) Keep going, keep working, and remember that when you “talk” to yourself, you can tell yourself anything you want! And I’d like to tell you that you’re kind, brilliant, amazing, and the world needs you!
What is coming up for your business? New and exciting product? Changes?
SO excited for the Brilliant Life Project coming up! Join the Brilliant Life Project here!
I’m taking the entire summer on Facebook Live to help women give voice to their dreams, then make those dreams a reality. We’ll be digging deep, getting past everything that holds us back, and discussing very practical ways to make things happen. It’s going to be SO much fun and I can’t wait to see how everyone grows! (including me!) At the end of the summer, I’ll be launching my brand new Brilliant Life Planner, and it will equip women to live the brilliant life they were made to live – with a focus on big goals and dreams and making their families and loved ones a priority too.
