Top 25 Tech Moms Voting is In Progress

Right now voting for the Top 25 Tech Moms is in progress over at Circle of Moms for top tech mom bloggers. Last year I placed #7 in the top 25 list, thanks to my readers, our customers, friends, and family. It was an exciting ride. Placing helps our business because we get a lot of exposure from Circle of Moms, as they feature the winners. We also get to do a write up about what our blog is about, and mention our products/apps, which helps as well. As I wrote in my last post, the more sales we have of our apps, the more time we have to devote to improving the existing apps, rather than resort to contract work to meet our bills. So it's a win-win for us and our customers. That said, hopefully you'll take a few minutes to click this voting link (or the one to the right - Circle of Moms - Top 25 - Vote for Me) and then click the heart button to vote. If you've got even more time, you can vote every 24 hrs thru March 6th. Thank you for your support, as always!

From Engineering to Tech Entrepreneurship, One Mom's Roadmap to Success

Recently my husband and I did a presentation at our daughter's 5th grade class on entrepreneurship, running a business, and making iOS apps. Our oldest daughter is writing an iPhone game with her dad, so was thrilled to be validated in front of her peers. It was very rewarding to us because we could introduce a seed of thought to the kids in the class—options! My mom's advice to me when I was a new mom was to expose my kids to as many things as I could—to show them they have choices in the world. We are thrilled to be able to have that chance to introduce the ambiguous world of entrepreneurship and encourage STEM. I had wished that entrepreneurship had been demystified for me when I was young. My parents intro'd me to a world of information and experiences, but I ended up quite risk-adverse; I even took an entrepreneurship class in my business master's program! So, here I am, an entrepreneur, running my own indie mobile development business with my husband. How did I get past all that fear of risk? Surprisingly, goals are what have driven me down this path, and those goals have as much to do with my children and family as my personal drive for achievement. In this post, I will share my story, from mechanical engineer to program manager to mom and president of my own company.
