Who I am!

Work-at-Home-Moms doesn’t begin to say it all. We are so much more than that!  Just like you, I have a home, a family, cook meals, and do all those things that moms do BUT I also run a business. Several in fact.

I’ve done it!  You can, too!

Back in 1992, I began a small local gift basket business that has since mushroomed into a national gift service that delivers and ships unusual gifts, bakery products, and gift baskets all over the country.

Going back even further, I was a freelance writer and even published a statewide newspaper. Fast forward a bit and the itch to write had me writing once again for trade magazines for my industry.  That led to invitations to speak at national conventions and even to publishing my own industry digital magazine.  Tied into that is a worldwide directory for gift company owners and a whole community for gift basket business owners.

Why am I rambling on about what I do?  Simply because IF I CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU!  
And I am here to help you start and grow your own business.

But we’re much more than Work At Home Moms!
We are women who live balanced lives.

We cook.  We raise our kids and grand kids.  We decorate our homes.  We take care of our health and look good!  And most important of all, We take time for ourselves, enjoy our hobbies and favorite fast times.  We have pets.  We go hiking.  We are what I call WORK AT HOME MOMS AND SO MUCH MORE!

I invite you to join me as I continue this journey.  
There’s no right time or even a right place.
Whether you’re a young brand-new mom or an older one with grand kids, you can join at any time during your life.

I learned a secret during my journey that I’m going to share with you.  Growing a successful business is simply putting one foot in front of the other, learning as you go.

I want to be your mentor and for you to say to yourself, “If Joyce can do this, I can do it too!”  And you really can. The only thing stopping you is doing nothing.

I’ll be sharing with you what I have learned from others through the years, as I stirred  it into the pot of experience, and created my own individual style and way of operating a successful and profitable business.

This website will take you from the basic steps of starting a business all the way through to how to grow a fledgling business into a profitable enterprise.

As in most things, there is no absolute right way to do anything.  I’ll be offering you my knowledge and will lead you to other resources which will prove invaluable to you as you create your own unique business and life.

I will be sharing ideas to help you create balance between work and personal life, quick and easy but healthy recipes for you and your family, financial and budgeting  ideas and so much more  that I think will interest you.

Select what will fit into your individual creative lifestyle and discard the rest.   As a result, you will end up a unique person with a unique business that could only be created by YOU.

Here is a card that was given to me on Mother’s Day a number of years ago by my youngest daughter. It says it all:


From one Work at Home Mom to another — I’m excited to have you here!
