2 Girls Talking

We are 2 business owners, 2 journalists and 2 working moms! Our lives are crazy as we live our dreams of entrepreneurship and raising a family. Sometimes those worlds collide, sometimes they co-exist and some rare times they work together.

040A0390.jpgIf a picture says a thousand words what do you want one picture to say about you? It's a question Melissa Demple asks every time she meets with a new client or looks through the viewfinder of her camera. As a branding photographer, Melissa knows the importance of image and message and it's her job to find the right answer for her client. But we'll let Melissa tell you how she does that and why it's so important that every person has a brand - for yourself and your company!

From team building to             training employees to be managers to changing a company's culture, Mike preaches the benefits of getting your employees on board with your vision, which can only help your clients. 

 As business owners we all face similar challenges - especially hiring the right employees, getting everyone on the same page and then helping those employees be better so that we can all help our clients. It's hard work - but with Mike's help we will do it!

You can learn more about Mike and his company, Servistar Consulting on his website. Check him out - truth bombs abound! (and if you think he's funny on the podcast, watch his video. Mike knows how to keep his audience!)

gluten-free-health-coach-nutrition-wellness-coffee-shop-table-cropped-mini.jpegFood is life! And not just for foodies. But it can also be dangerous and bad for our health, especially if we don't know the signs and symptoms of illnesses. That's what happened to Laurel Otey, owner of Layered Living. She knew something was wrong when her daughter's behavior changed and she went into detective mode. What came next was rounds of doctor visits, a return to the United States, back to college and now a new career and business helping you discover how to live your healthiest - maybe even tastiest - life.

image-asset.jpegMarci Moberg has been on a journey. One that brought her to Washington, DC for a government job, saw her get married, then divorced and took her all over the world before returning to DC. She finally found her way home when she decided to listen to her body and follow her intuition. We all have those gut feelings when something just feels right. Or wrong. We don't always listen, and that usually turns out badly.

Marci is on a new journey now, a teaching journey. She shows people how to connect with themselves, how to listen to the voice inside and follow that path, even if it's very scary. And believe us it can be! Joy takes time. Finding yourself takes time. Marci's passion is helping you find yours.

Who's good at setting boundaries? Chances are you're not. Most of us aren't good at setting boundaries, or really know how to set boundaries. But boundaries can be our friends - our good friends. And make us better business people for our clients. Here's what we've learned.

Social Media is everywhere right? And that's great! But it's not always good. Most social media experts will tell you to have two separate social media worlds - a personal and a business account. But what happens when the two worlds collide? And when is the right time to take a break? We had to ask ourselves some hard questions when we ran into this issue.
