It’s been ages since I blog!!
*…and somehow that line becomes a default opening line on my every post recently..*=p
Our life has been moving faster than we thought. My house is finally fully renovated and ready to be decorated. I love how gorgeous it turns out to be and the theme and color just perfect for me.
Another thing that happen to us recently is… We are expecting!
A baby girl name Savannah Grace is coming our way. There’s a meaning behind that unusual name and I will tell you next time when the baby arrive.
Anyway, I’m so excited to share with you about this book, Mom’s Inc by the darling of blog world, Meg Mateo Ilasco & Cat Seto.
Here’s the description about the book and authors (taken by Chronicles’s page)
So many women dream of having it all—being kickass mothers and running their own successful businesses. This book helps them take the leap with confidence. Serial entrepreneurs (and moms) Meg Mateo Ilasco and Cat Seto draw on their own successes and missteps to reveal exactly how to choose the right business, find clients, write a business plan, launch a blog and Web site, stay focused at home, and more. Insightful Q&As with enterprising mothers like fashion designer Cynthia Rowley and Style Me Pretty blogger Abby Larson demystify the many nuances of balancing work life with family time. It’s not easy. But this practical and inspiring guide helps make it possible.

Having read Meg’s previous book, Creative, Inc (co-write by Joy Cho, the writer of Oh, Joy! blog) I am fully convinced that this book is gonna be super inspiring too! The first book is so informative and inspiring as I always been contemplating to give up my day job and focus on my creative business.So the book helps growing that seed.
I’m not sure how many of you, have desire to be a full time mom and full time business owner, but that’s always been my goal. Although I truly love my day job as full time designer, but deep down in my heart I know I can do so much more with the time I spent sitting in front of my 2 giant Mac screens and 2 TVs in my office.
I am one restless creative dynamo.
By the way, I just made reservation in Kinokuniya for this book and I’ll dig it on my Krabi holiday in June! Yay!
