As a busy work-at-home parent, the digital age can be a blessing and a curse. Emerging media sources are exploding, but traditional media platforms still play an important role in giving exposure to small business. If only you knew how to cut through that fierce competition.
Remember that everything worthwhile comes with hard work and perseverance. Most of the time, the reward is simply given to the ones who never threw in the towel… even when they most wanted to.
On this show, I am pleased to introduce you to a long-time colleague who I’ve had the pleasure of watching blossom in her business and brand. Beginning with her creation of a gorgeous online shopping mall with more than 75 virtual stores within Shabby Lane Shops, Catherine Monceaux has expanded her architectural vision into a beautiful newsstand magazine, now available in top stores such as Barnes and Noble.
Catherine’s passion for her enterprise is fueled by the love that she has for her children… a resource that we all have in our toolbox. We have more commonality than we often realize.
Joining us once again as co-host is my good friend, Tania Mulry. We’ll be sharing some exciting new developments with you in regards to mobile media marketing.
Catherine Monceaux created Shabby Lane Shops 4 years ago, with a desire to work from home with her children, but at the same time create and provide affordable advertising for other small business owners like herself. As the online shopping mall that she created grew, also the need for reaching other audiences grew.
She created Shabby Lane Shops magazine which quickly transformed into a newsstand magazine and was very well received by many. She also participates in shows selling her shops inventory and marketing to thousands in person. She has been on TV several times, and presented her members products and samples to several celebrities, including Leeza Gibbons & Deidre Hall. She publishes the magazine from her home, the articles are written by the shop owners, and is a very unique publication.
It is amazing that so many people that are so far in distance can work together so closely and create a beautiful magazine together. After being on the newsstands for over a year, the magazine and Shabby Lane Shops continues to grow. Shabby Lane Shops is also in the Apple newsstand for iPad, iPod & iPhone. Shabby Lane Shops continues to add new benefits and services, most recently offering web hosting & web design. A complete start up for new businesses and marketing and promotion for all businesses.
