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.

National Tax Day

National Tax Day

National Tax Day refers to the day when individual tax returns are due to the Federal Government. Normally National Tax Day occurs on April 15 but this year it has been changed to April 18.

There are many reasons for this change – April 15 falls on a Saturday and Emancipation Day is on Monday April 17 which is observed in Washington, DC honoring President Abraham Lincoln signing the bill that ended slavery.

National Tax Day was first implemented throughout the United States in 1861 in order to help fund the Civil War through the Revenue Act. In 1913, income tax was added to the 16th Amendment and ever since then Americans have been filing taxes every April. 

We got our taxes done! Phew! #NationalTaxDay #VCApets #dogsofinstagram #woof
