Through San Diego Bargain Mama and SR Media Consulting I have built partnerships for profit with many local entrepreneurs, thanks to social media, which has been a huge means to finding like-minded colleagues to support one another with our our missions. When I was approached by Fox 5 Anchor Kathleen Bade to be featured in a news segment that aired last night, I proposed inviting a group of my colleagues that I have worked with extensively to discuss something revolutionary in our lives – social media! Our common link is not just that we all incorporate the use of both traditional and new media in our lives, but we have a great appreciation for the ability to access technology from the comfort of our own homes (or purses) while we raise our families.
Although I personally hedge away from solely using the blanket terms “Mompreneur” or “Mommy Blogger,” I greatly applaud the unique comradery that supportive and collaborative fellow moms in business offer. I certainly would not have grown SDBM nor SR Media Consulting without it!
The entrepreneurs featured in the FOX segment, as well as Kathleen Bade who is a mom of two, have greatly inspired me in they way that they balance their passion for their *work in both online and traditional media with the demanding role of motherhood. How has technology changed your life?

* I wanted to respond to some noteworthy feedback that I have received since just hours after the post was shared online. The numbers pertaining to mom blogger incomes that Kathleen Bade shared in the TV segment above are the same as what I found online, myself, however it’s important to note that they appear to reflect household incomes that are not soley based on blogger incomes.
