There is power in numbers.
When I first created OurMilkMoney.com, it was because I had a dream to be able to stay home and take care of my family. I knew that I couldn’t do it alone, and that there had to be others who had the same dream. My vision for OurMilkMoney.com was that it would be a collaborative organization – one that would serve a purpose for many others like me. The more parents I could get involved- the more we would accomplish for ourselves and our children. I had dreams of validation, purpose and impact. Nearly 4 years later, I still feel the energy from all of you. It’s feeding itself. We can see very clearly what we have already accomplished and how much more we will grow and succeed as a team.
Parents are a force to be reckoned with.
We share the same philosophy. In this virtual world of intra-personal communication, you must believe that there is a force that binds us all together. It’s the love we have for our children. Because, let’s face it, none of us knew this kind of love until we became parents. It changed everything about who we are as people and what is ultimately important in our short time on this planet. No matter what your personal goals are for your family, what kind of house you want to live in, the monetary limit you’ve put on yourself to feel successful… we all have our children in common with one another. Not one of us will dispute that our families are worth the sacrifices we make every day. We use our lives of freedom to give quality time to our children…not on sick days or an allotted number of personal days. EVERYDAY. No one’s priorities are more important than yours and your family’s.
That is why Organizations like OurMilkMoney.com and LivingMyMoMent.com are aggressively adamant in showing the world the value of family owned and operated businesses. Joining us for the show is Abbey Fatica, owner and president of Living Your Moment which she started in April 2009 as a way to market small businesses owned by moms and dads.

Living Your Moment was started in April 2009 when Abbey Fatica was trying to figure out a way to make some extra cash. She was a Stay at Home Mom to her daughter at the time and really wanted to contribute somehow to their income. After searching online for many months, trying to come up products to sell and not being able to find anything that spoke to me, she had an AHA MoMent!
While watching Oprah one day, Abbey was intrigued by the segment on MoM bloggers and although she had never really thought about Blogging as an profession, Heather Armstrong from Dooce.com changed her mind. Seeing how a mom just like herself could make a living out of blogging about her life then Abbey could do it, too!
On top of just blogging, Abbey wanted to offer some kind of service to family run business owners. Our country was in one of the worst recessions since the great depression and it’s hard to keep small businesses afloat let alone pay a fortune to advertise. These types of businesses are usually hit the hardest when the economy is bad and she didn’t want to see all of their efforts go to waste. So why not offer FREE ADVERTISING. And that’s where we started!
Living Your Moment is ready to take your business to the next level. We know that moms who run small businesses are strapped for time and Living Your Moment will provide affordable marketing for your business by doing the busy work for you. We don’t want to add to your already busy schedule. We want to give you the opportunity to be able to spend more time with your kids or perfecting your product.
Advertising and Marketing your business is a job within itself and that’s exactly what Living Your Moment is committed to do for you. Promote your product to your target audience so that you can see your sales skyrocket through the roof!
