I share how a business idea that played to my strengths and interests fell into my lap as a new mom of two, and how I ran hard with it. And how I turned it into a growing business where I help give moms an affordable way to outsource their party planning so they can focus on enjoying the actual celebration.
Two Years and a Different Person Later
I get asked ALL the time how and why I started my business, Allison Carter Celebrates. Questions like, “did you always want to start a business?,” “how did you think of this idea?” , “is running a business a lot of work?” I love talking about business. It’s one of my favorite conversations. I literally could talk about business strategy, marketing, going scared, social media, etc. all day long. Was this always the case? Heck no. I never thought I would be an entrepreneur. I come from entrepreneurial parents and that life is hard. It’s unpredictable, vulnerable and can be super stressful at times. It definitely has perks, but this life is no joke. I always thought I would go back to teaching when my kids went to school. I loved being a teacher and always saw myself in the classroom, even as a little first grader. That was my dream, and I got my dream job and loved it. Then I became a mom and loved that just a little bit more. After doing the stay at home mom thing for awhile, I was nearing the place of needing something more. I had lost myself and I needed to get back to something that made me me.
In this episode, I’m sharing how one conversation changed the course of my life. How a business idea that played to my strengths and interests fell into my lap as a new mom of two, and I ran hard with it. How I turned that idea into a growing business where I get to help give moms an affordable way to outsource their party planning so they can focus on enjoying the actual celebration. I hope my story can serve as some inspiration for anyone that also has a little nudge in their belly urging them to chase something, or to find yourself outside of being a mom for the first time in years.
To get the full scoop and even more pics and details, I’ve written a whole blog post in how I turned one little idea into something impacting women all over the world today!
The first official party plan I ever created…basically on accident? A First Fiesta for my girlfriend’s little girl! Below are some of the pictures from one of the coolest moments of my life. Walking into this party and seeing my ideas and vision come to life through the hands of someone else was incredibly special and validating for me. It’s a moment I’ll never forget and I love nothing more than seeing party pics from mamas that have used party plans to help them host!
