The Face, The Voice, The Blog!

Amy Ballon and Danielle Botterell have been finishing each other’s sentences for more than 20 years now. Over the last two decades they’ve been classmates, roommates, ‘best woman’ at each other’s weddings, and had five kids between them. In between all of this, they’ve been business partners and co-authors.

Amy and Danielle are passionate about all things small business. They frequently speak on the topic of entrepreneurship to the media, at seminars and conferences. Amy and Danielle co-founded Admiral Road Designs, which they sold in 2013 after more than a decade. They also wrote Mom Inc. — How to Raise Your Family and Your Business Without Losing Your Mind or Your Shirt, published by HarperCollins. These days, the best friends continue to work together, advising other entrepreneurs via their business, Spark Consulting.

In Mom Ink, Amy and Danielle will share insights, tips, advice, and the occasional straight-up confession about life as a mom and an entrepreneur.  Are you a Yummy Mummy with a business? Or just thinking about it?  Welcome to Mom Ink — where we look at the good, the bad, and the sticky of life as mom entrepreneur.
