Throwback Thursday: My Business is a Family Business

SistaSense Events - A Family Affair

One of the BEST parts of being a work at home mom is that my business is a family business. This week’s throwback Thursday photos highlights some of my SistaSense Weekend Workshops over the years, my boys (hubby and son) are always with me providing support, extra hands and lots of love.

Beyond the freedom and mobility that entrepreneurship brings, I value the life lessons that I am able to both share and pass on to my son. As a community we need to encourage our children to be not only workers, but business owners. I hope that is something I am able to instill in him. Moreover, I want him to see and understand healthy relationships, positive black parents and what it means to have an amazing supportive black male figure his father in his life, so that he can grow up and be all these things and more when he’s an adult.

I love what I do. I love working with other women entrepreneurs. And I feel blessed knowing I can enjoy this crazy ride called entrepreneurship with my boys!

Hopefully you feel the same way too. This coming January marks my 5th year hosting weekend workshops at the Aloft Hotel in Chapel Hill NC – this next one is titled Triple X Success Secrets – full details here if you’d like to join us. This is an intimate implementation web business workshop for 10-15 ladies in my circle and there are still a few spots left if you’d like to boost your new year Fire and Focus SistaSense style.

Domain Registration and Web Hosting Help for New Entrepreneurs

Are you starting your business online? Do you have questions about getting hosting, registering your domain name? Or whether or not you should get a FREE hosting plan vs a premium plan that you pay for? Review some of my startup answers below.

What’s the difference between a domain name & hosting?
Your domain name is a unique address that identifies your website like www.yoursmallbusiness.com. Your web hosting is the space online where you will store your website data, which includes your html pages, blog, pictures, media files and other important information.

What service should you use for domain registration and hosting?
I use and recommend HostMonster, which offers quality low cost hosting plans starting at as little as $3.95 per month. Their services include unlimited space, a free domain name on registration and 24/7 customer support. Best of all, you can host multiple websites under one hosting plan; you just need separate domain names for each site. You can sign up to HM through me at HostMonster.SistaSense.com.

Is it possible to get started for free?
Free is possible. I built my first sites for free on blogger, but truth be told, everything comes with a price. You can create a website for free using popular services like Blogger.com, WordPress.com or Weebly.com. Most of these free hosting plans offer professional template designs that are relatively easy for beginners to work with. They are all great on the surface, but come with limitations.

For starters your domain name will include the name of your host company like mybusiness.blogger.com or mybusiness.weebly.com. For potential customers this is an automatic giveaway that your web business is built on a free site, which can be a turn off. In exchange for free services you give your host provider permission to market their business on your site. Free sites almost always feature logos and links that promote the host company as a way to help them get more business through you.

They give you free hosting in exchange for free marketing, but how do they make any money? Free hosting providers make money by charging for premium services like removing their links from your site, adding custom domain names and providing you with special features to make your site look and function better. These plans all start off free, but eventually you will find yourself spending money on premium services, site enhancements or the costs related to transferring your free site over to a paid self-hosted service like Hostmonster.

Content control is the biggest concern when it comes to free hosting. While you will always maintain ownership of your content, free hosting services can suspend or delete your content at any time without notice. Deletion only happens in extreme cases if your website content violated their terms of service policy, but it’s worth mentioning because many people have unfortunately lost websites with years worth of content this way. Paid self-hosting is the best option if you are serious about starting a business and want complete control over your content, branding and design.

(video) Fog, Fear, Fatigue: Woman In Business – What’s Holding Back Your Best

Good MorNing! One day I went out on my porch, saw how foggy the sky was and got inspired to host a periscope session on “Fog, Fear, Fatigue: What’s Holding Back Your Best.” As women entrepreneurs, mompreneurs, 9to5preneurs and so on, we often find ourselves wearing many hats, doing many things, feeling foggy, afraid and tired in the process. Today I wanted to share a few words of encouragement and direction to anyone who could use a little “pick me up” as you work and walk through this journey we call entrepreneurship.
