Hi, I’m Heather! I’m a mom of three kids + one big rescue dog, and a longtime entrepreneur.
In 2002, I started my first home business as a freelance copywriter when my first daughter was two years old. I scrapped that business when my second daughter was born and her sleep troubles inspired me to invent two baby blankets called Swaddleaze and Blankeaze, which I later sold to Summer Infant.
When my son was born in 2006, I founded TheMogulMom.com to help other mom entrepreneurs who were trying to run a business, raise a family, and rock both. After seven happy years at the helm there, I sold the site in 2013.
Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of being interviewed and featured in The New York Times, Working Mother, Fox Business News, ProBlogger, Entrepreneur, Visa Business Network, Daily Worth, Etsy Blog, Simple Mom, American Express OPEN Forum, SheKnows and YellowPages.com, as well as several best-selling books including The $100 Startup, The Digital Mom Handbook, and The Well-Fed Writer: Back for Seconds.
Currently, I’m working on (re)starting my essential oils business. I love spending time (and cracking up) with my family, taking walks with my dog, watching the birdies in the woods behind me, and reading non-fiction.
Here’s what The Mogul Mom website looked like when I was at the helm:
