Mompreneurs Talk About Business Ownership With Maria Falzo for Mommy Monday

Maria Falzo talks with Mallika Malhotra in the #HipNJ studio about her new book The Brand Photography Playbook and some of the “Mompreneurs” she covers in its pages. Mallika helps business women distinguish their identity through images and bring their brands to life. The book outlines the process she utilizes to assist those struggling to find brand identity on this installment of #MommyMonday.

Jennifer Brosnick is a therapist, social worker and mom coach who works with mothers struggling with post-partum depression and anxiety. Jennifer uses a holistic approach to treating anxiety-associated symptoms of the women she handles. She finds many of her clients through the mid-wife practice she works with, guiding the mothers from the early stages of pregnancy and being there after the birthing process.

Betty Galvan of “My Friend Betty” is a digital marketing consultant and social media manager who works with small businesses in New Jersey – primarily those owned by women. Betty is skilled in developing digital marketing plans for business owners who either do not have the time or expertise to handle it themselves.

Maggie Zakhery is an independent consultant with “Beauty Counter”, a California based company, focused on educating users on the ingredients in their skincare products. Maggie is passionate about reducing exposure to the harsh chemicals present in most make-up and skin care routines that are a result of lax industry regulation.

Mallika and the “Mompreneurs” admirably manage to balance motherhood and business-ownership by being creative, allowing them the freedom to create their own schedules that accommodate both full-time responsibilities.

Rachel Ross Episode of “Dining With The DJ”

Brining us the best of both worlds, the “Dining With The DJ” web-series combines conversation of event entertainment and fashion! Created by event entertainer, and founder of NinetyThree Entertainment, Artem Lomaz, this episode featured award winning blogger and mom-trepreneur, Rachel Ross. Artem and Rachel chat about her blog, motherhood, the importance of entertainment to weddings, and so much more! Key moments include Rachel’s recap of her encounters with Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen, Artem’s intrigue about 90’s fashion, and Rachel re-living her wedding reception.

In this four-part episode (with a bonus part five!) we learn about the evolution of Rachel’s fashion sense, and get Artem’s take on event preparation and approach to his Master of Ceremonies duties at weddings.

Rachel’s blog, The Rachel Rossis an award-winning and acclaimed archive of her stylish and fashion-forward approach to life.

Her adventurous spirit is evident throughout her writing and the emotional investment within some of her heart-warming articles is to be of notice. In the rare case that Rachel doesn’t bring enough sass to an article or photo shoot, her eldest daughter more than makes up for it!
