Hey! I’m Cherie. Writing an entrepreneur mom blog was never a part of my plan, however, neither was becoming an entrepreneur. I fell into the small business world on accident back in 2012 after becoming a stay-at-home-mom. I got crafty and started making hair bows (even though I didn’t even have a daughter). I got so addicted to making them, I turned my craft hobby into a business, The Pink Barrette, LLC.
In 2017 I also co-founded another business with my husband, Cedar Rapids Marketplace. It’s a website that promotes and sells products made by small businesses in our local community. We are thrilled that we get to work with other amazing small businesses.
This past year I even joined a direct sales company (something I never imagined I would do), LimeLight by Alcone. I was so impressed with the quality of the products, their long history in the industry, and the affordability of the products. I couldn’t NOT join.
Each day I balance my businesses and caring for my four children. While they have some special challenges, Autism, Epilepsy, Anxiety, and ADHD, we have been able to manage them well. We are thankful for the diagnosis’ that have helped us to understand our children and get them the treatments and therapies that they have needed. They are the cutest, funniest, and most loveable people I know (no bias here). ?
As I grow my businesses and my babies (all four of them now), I am trying to balance life through it all. I am a woman/wife/mother/entrepreneur in progress, but I am learning as I go. I’m obsessed with personal growth, finding purpose, and taking action. I am also trying to learn to see myself as God sees me, and use myself for His purpose.
