Werther’s + Weber’s = Roadtrip!

What says summer better than a road trip?  Not much! There has been a lot of  “stuff” going on in our lives, so when we got an opportunity to get out of town for a couple of days, we jumped at it with full gratitude.  Mini Me and I officially kicked the summer off on Father’s Day Weekend by packing our bags, hopping in the car on Friday afternoon and headed up north to Muskoka for the #PioneerCamp16 Blogger Family weekend.  Of course no road trip to Muskoka is complete without Werther’s Original Hard Candy and a stop at Weber’s! (We were lucky enough to have a $10 Gift Certificate to spend there.)

It was so good to get away and meet up with some old friends and make some new ones. The video pretty much sums up how awesome of a weekend it was!  One that we will be forever grateful for.

Flash forward to today – Mini Me recently got back from an amazing week at OPC Girls Camp.  When I asked her what her favourite part about camp this time around she said had a few favourites; but the things that topped the list were the people, the food, and “Devo/Siesta Time.

Once again she made amazing friendships and built a stronger relationship with God.  We are so grateful that we were able to get some financial assistance to make this happen for her.  (It’s not easy to send a kid to camp when you are a solo parent & entrepreneur!)   The summer is not over yet and we’d love to give your kid a chance to make amazing memories like mine did.   Click here  for more information about the camp and follow the prompts to register.

Taking the Leap!

Blogger girl

I have been immersed in social media for several years; but have never called myself a Blogger.  My line has always been “I’m a Tweeter, not a Blogger!”

I have been to few conferences, such as Blissdom Canada, that have really opened my eyes to the world of blogging and the opportunities to work with some pretty amazing brands; but I couldn’t really see how that would work with my existing personal brand, so I would leave the conference happy to have learned lots and made some great connections and then it was back to the world of social media.

Recently I stumbled upon a Facebook post by Julie Nowell of 3Chicken Consulting, who said that she was accepting applications into a 6 week Blogger Mentoring Challenge.  One of my goals for 2016 is to be more visible, so I thought that this was a perfect opportunity for me to get the blog up and running on my website Robin Read Griffin – which I am embarrassed to admit that I haven’t updated since 2014.  I signed up for the mentorship and got accepted into the challenge!  Woot woot!

As I was reading through the first homework challenge, and reflecting on an amazing afternoon that I just had with some amazing ladies at Swagger Sessions, I decided that it was time to take massive action towards my goals and ladybossmom.com was born!

Now I can officially say that I am a Blogger!  I would like to invite you to subscribe to my blog and join me on my journey, where I will share with you stories of inspiration, entrepreneurship, motherhood, self-care and a celebration of all of the Ladyboss Mom’s out there!
