MOMpreneur Monday: iBakery

MOMpreneur Monday has a very very special mama to blog about today, Jackie Long from iBakery!

What makes Jackie so special? Well, she creates the most delicious and gorgeous sugar cookies, including ones with printable designs (so very cool)! She's also the mama of twins and just welcomed new little baby boy to their family a couple of weeks ago!

1) what do you do
I make custom decorated sugar cookies, cakes, printables and treats of all kinds. I can match cookies to a theme, and even help set up a complete food table. Cookies can be hand-piped or your image can be printed directly onto the cookie - the possibilities are endless!

2) why do you love it
I have always loved to bake. I love to eat sweets, so that is one motivator, but I also love the smile that a homemade treat puts on someone's face. I am a stay at home Mom to 3 year old twins with another little one on the way. The iBakery has allowed me to combine my love of baking with generating some income - a win-win for sure.

3) what advice do you have for other MOMpreneurs?
If you have an idea, figure out who to approach to get some samples out there. It takes some patience as building your business via word of mouth takes some time, but it is well worth it in the end. Most importantly, reserve time that is specifically for you and your business, so that it doesn't interfere with the time you want to spend with your family. It can be quite stressful to try and put out an order when your kids are playing, as they can't understand why Mommy can't play right then. You may pull some late nights, but I find these nights fun and worth it.
