I met Veronica virtually through our MOB Facebook group (check it out here). I have been keeping an eye on what Veronica is doing in her business and am truly impressed by her vision and the direction she is taking her business in. Veronica helps homeowners boost their income to create financial independence. I hope you enjoy learning a bit more about her below.
Tell us a little about your family.
I’ve been married for eight years and have two amazing daughters. My daughter Jefri is six years old and my daughter Charleigh is four years old. They are both learning Japanese full time in school.
Why did you become a business owner?
I became a business owner because working for someone else was too frustrating. Watching mistakes being made on fundamental levels within an organization made my anxiety go up. I knew I could do things better by owning my own business.
What is your biggest success as a Mom Business Owner?
Teaching dozens of other women to quit their full time job and be independent business owners is incredibly fulfilling.
What is one business mistake you’ve made that ended up being helpful in the long run?
I began using my personal facebook as my main marketing platform. Turns out my clients want to see the family stuff, real stuff, and random stuff I post beyond just business. Now all my clients are connected to me on my personal facebook page.
What is the best thing about being a mom business owner?
Flexibility! Even when there are times it’s inconvenient, I always ultimately have a choice weather I give up my family time. I am in control of what work happens and when.
What are your top mom boss tips?
Moms often find themselves starting businesses because they follow a passion. That word, passion makes me cringe in business.
Moms need to know it’s not enough to have passion. You need to have a quality product (or service), at a price point that customers will pay, with profit margins that reward your efforts. And even after all of that, all you’ve created is the potential for success. If you’re just following a passion and not interested in profit, that’s a hobby not a business.
I see lots of moms starting businesses without looking at it from an analytical perspective. Businesses are complicated and passion cannot be the only consideration.
What are your top three favorite books?
What do you really want other mom bosses to know?
I run three successful, profitable, flexible businesses and still consider myself a full time stay at home mom. My husband works full-time and I have made more than him for our entire relationship. Strategic side hustles can become incredibly beneficial for moms.
