Product description


'Holly Hurd has written a book to inspire moms to turn their passions and interests into business ventures.' - Darien Times

"... good introduction to the concept of micro businesses... demonstrates what is achievable with passion, commitment and focus and provides a formula that has yielded good results for others." - Coach's Casebook

'The book takes you step-by-step, week-by-week into the world of startup. For less than 20 bucks, you're essentially getting a crash course in entrepreneurship.' - Web.com

"Mom power is what entrepreneur Hurd extols... the very logical methodology Hurd prescribes will certainly prompt more moms (and dads) to consider launching a business." - Booklist

'Although the book focuses on moms, the advice can be applied to any individual who needs or wants to a€˜bootstrap' or a€˜hack' their way into entrepreneurship.' - Small Business Trends

'Hurd includes inspirational and instructive examples of mompreneurs who achieved success with a simple business plan and minimal startup funds.' - Success Magazine


From the Back Cover

Millions of mothers are eager to ditch their jobs—but they’re not so eager to give up the income. The solution? Setting out on their own and finding the satisfaction they’ve longed for.

You can, too. Venture Mom makes starting a business remarkably easy. You don’t need a complicated plan or start-up capital. Designer onesies, kids’ classes, home organization, cupcakes, tutoring—anything can be turned into a profitable business in just 12 steps, each achievable in a single week. Stories, examples, guidelines, and more will help you:

Choose a great idea • test to make sure it will work • brainstorm a name • design a logo • figure out the best price • create a website • and post, tweet, pin, and blog like a pro.

Long-time entrepreneur Holly Hurd shares her personal advice on how to break past fears that may hold you back, and shows how running your own business can bring joy and balance to your life.

Ready to leave the pressure-cooker work world behind? Or bring more fulfillment to your stay-at-home world? Venture Mom turns your dreams of starting a business into reality.
