Do You Want to Be a Part of a Community
of Women Who Understand Where You’re At,
Can Provide You with Fast, On-Demand Solutions and
Fits In to Your Mom Entrepreneur Budget?
Welcome to the MomBiz™ Academy, the “MBA” that really matters
to moms who want to excel at running a business while also running their families.
We understand your desire to run your own business and enjoy all the freedom, flexibility and fulfillment that accompanies that. We also know that you want to do all of this without compromising your dedication to your family. And we know you probably started your business without the knowledge, resources, expertise and experience you need to be successful at it.
That’s why we created the MomBiz™ Academy, for MomBiz™ owners like you who want fast, on-demand solutions, mentoring and coaching that fits into a mom entrepreneur budget.
We know how isolating being a MomBiz™ owner can be. We know you have a million questions and don’t know who to ask for the answers. And it can be so hard knowing how to make the right decisions that keep your values and priorities in tact while keeping your business on track to meet your goals.
We have learned the lessons we teach.
Collectively, we have six children aged ten and under who are the light of our lives. We value our marriages and focus on what it takes to keep them healthy. And our businesses are our passion–the things we can’t NOT do because it fills our souls. But when we started out, we knew nothing about running a business, planning and development, marketing and strategy and all those other business processes we must understand to be successful business owners.
We really want you to achieve success as you define it for yourself. We know that’s a very personal definition, depending on your unique values, priorities and goals. But it probably includes having:
- more time
- more clients
- more income
- more productivity
- more balance
- and more sanity!
But there are some nuts and bolts that go into building a sustainable mom entrepreneur business.
We know you don’t have time to scour the Internet trying to find all the answers to your questions, so we’ve put them all here in the MomBiz™ Academy Resource Center.
We’re also making ourselves available to our members via WEEKLY LIVE calls so you can get custom answers and support as you grow your business.
And we’ll provide focused training each month on specific topics that help make your life and business better.
A MomBiz™ owner’s most precious asset is her time. We get the same 24 hours everyone else does, yet we have more responsibilities and conflicting priorities than most other entrepreneurs. The MomBiz™ Academy is your one-stop shop for the critical, unique support MomBiz™ owners need in a way that is easy, accessible and affordable.
So, why not join us? You owe it to yourself, your family and your business to be successful. Join now and take a huge leap towards making more money while working less, and truly loving the work you do!
We Have Literally Walked
a Mile in YOUR Shoes
Shelagh Cummins and Lara Galloway
Co-founders, MomBiz.com and Leaders of the MomBiz™ Academy
Lara’s Story: I started my business based on my passion, but I didn’t know a thing about running a business. I was trying to work whenever I thought the kids didn’t need me, when I could sneak away or while they were asleep. My family started getting frustrated that I was always multitasking, never giving them the focus they wanted and deserved.
But little by little I learned how to build a website, how to market myself online, how to find my target audience and get engaged with them, how to attract ideal clients to me, how to set fees I was happy to earn, how to work only during set office hours, how to get my family’s support of me and my business, how to quit when the kids came home and how to get a healthy dinner on the table just about every night at 6. I have achieved the success I wanted as a mom and as a business owner, and I want to teach you some short cuts so you can do the same!
Shelagh’s Story: I am like you. I crave flexibility so I can spend as much time with my kids as possible – yet still contribute to the financial needs of my family. My journey has not always been smooth – there have been mistakes, some very costly, and some major successes. My learning along the way has been invaluable – and I want to share it so you won’t make the same mistakes I did. Time and money are your two most valuable assets – there is not a MomBiz™ owner out there who can afford to waste either. That’s why we have created the MomBiz™ Academy.
While founding and building Practicalmum.com – an online community parenting resource & blog, I also became an associate at a national training company specializing in content creation, course development, social media strategy & implementation. A large part of that role was strategic facilitation & course delivery. I noticed there was a need for such training in the female entrepreneur community, particularly the MomBiz™ community. Here I am!
Joining forces with Lara has been the most amazing part of my journey so far. Together we provide powerful content – from a training and coaching angle designed to help you run both a successful business and family. We live what we preach. We get you. We can help you.
What Information Can I Expect

- Business Development
- Business Planning
- Getting Clients
- Passive Revenue Streams
- Product Funnels
- Social Media

We’ve organized everything we’ve been teaching MomBiz™ owners in our private coaching sessions and at our MomBiz™ Retreats over the last five years into simple categories so you can find the solution to your problem–FAST!
Unlike other consultants and coaches out there who want to provide you a blueprint or game plan so you can be just like them, we realize no single formula will work for all mom entrepreneurs. Our approach instead is for you to learn what’s best for you and to give you all the tools and support you need to get there!
What is Included in My
MomBiz™ Academy Membership?
Join the MomBiz™ Academy and you’ll get:
Access to the Entire MomBiz™ Resource Center
The Resource Center has all the answers you need for the questions you have broken down into simple categories like time management, social media, work/family balance, etc. and delivered via articles, podcasts, videos and hands-on checklists and worksheets you can do yourself.
Two Group Coaching Calls a Month
Hosted by Lara Galloway, the MomBiz™ Coach, this is a place where you know every month you can bring your big questions and get answers for them. You’ll receive personalized attention and answers for questions you don’t know who else to ask. Our guest experts will save you time and money by sharing best practices and what worked for them. Learn even more from listening in as your peers ask questions you probably have, too.
Two Training Calls a Month
Shelagh will be teaching specific solutions to make your life and business better–like how to beef up your offerings and your product funnel, or how to create your own Time Map to set boundaries between work and family when you’re a MomBiz™ owner. These hands-on trainings are accompanied by worksheets, checklists, and action guides along with all the accountability you need to get things done!
MomBiz™ Academy Facebook Group
A private community space created to bring us altogether to share ideas, solutions and experiences, as well as providing the opportunity to network and make friendships that can last a lifetime. This is a closed group that is only shared by our MBA members, who happen to love asking questions and sharing their wisdom with others! Being a MomBiz™ owner doesn’t mean you have to be alone!
Isn’t it time you stopped trying to figure it all out by yourself?
How much money is it costing you to keep going it on your own? Smart mombiz owners know they need help and are strong enough to ask for it. And we serve up heaps of it at the MomBiz™ Academy!
What is the Investment I’ll Be Making
in My MomBiz™ Academy Membership?
Other coaching programs and membership sites charge hundreds if not thousands of dollars for the same information we’re providing you here.
In fact, our own private coaching clients pay around $200 an hour for the support we provide them. But we know everyone’s not able to afford that level of service at this stage of the business. And we don’t want you to have to choose (like you so often do) to put the needs of your family before the needs of your business.
That’s why we’ve set the cost of membership to the MomBiz™ Academy ridiculously low at just
$67/month – $47/month until January 15/13!
We truly want to help the women out there we’ve come to know over the last few years who are committed to growing their business, but lack the knowledge and resources to do it.
Our recent survey of around 100 mom entrepreneurs last Fall told us that you know you need the help, you are committed to growing a successful business that fits into your family’s lifestyle, and that this is the amount you feel you can reasonably afford to make that happen. We want to meet you where you are!
For less than the cost of a couple good business books, we’re giving you the exact tools, plans and strategies that will bring you more ideal clients, more exciting projects and more money while spending less of your precious time away from your family!
Your MomBiz™ Academy membership also includes:
The Exact Resources You Need to Gain Clarity for Your Biz
Hundreds of how-to documents, step-by-step videos, simple worksheets, handy checklists and specific steps that will get you out of the “I don’t even know where to start” haze and get you on the road to success (at least a $2,000 value)
Focused and Direct Answers to YOUR Most Pressing Questions
The opportunity to ask a top MomBiz™ business coach and the smartest MomBiz™ consultant out there your toughest questions, like whether to build and HTML site or a WordPress blog, whether your niche is narrow enough, where to find your target market, whether it’s time to hire employees, what you should really be charging for your products or services, or how to find more time in your crazy schedule (at least a $150 value)
The Opportunity to Learn from Industry Experts & Leaders
Plus the chance to tune into expert interviews, and special training teleseminars, implementation calls and a general Q&A session each month that teach you success strategies like exactly how to build your list, create a product funnel, price your offerings, choose the right opportunities, or delegate to a virtual assistant (a $45 value)
A Community of Women Who “Get” You
Plus the chance to share, collaborate, network and learn from your fellow MomBiz™ owners in our private Facebook Group, women who have faced some of the same challenges you have and who are eager to support you (priceless)
You are getting thousands of dollars’ worth of coaching and guidance designed exclusively for mom entrepreneurs each month for less than $3 a day!
We bet getting just one new client or one new project would cover the cost of your membership, wouldn’t it?
Seriously, you can’t argue with $67. Before you spend that on a new toy for your kids, think about the investment you could be making in yourself, your business and your family’s future. It’s sooooo worth it.
But if you’re still having trouble justifying this investment in yourself, let us show you what you’re probably sacrificing by NOT getting the knowledge, expertise and support you need.
What is the Cost to a Mom Entrepreneur
Who Doesn’t Focus on Herself and Her Business?
Several of our clients hired us when they realized they had no idea where to find enough clients to meet their income goals each month.
They knew they were great at doing what they do, but they were really struggling finding people to hire them (and pay them).
For example, one of our mompreneurs needed to make $3,000/month to meet her family’s financial goals. When we began working together, she was only bringing in around $1,500/month consistently. This left her needing $1,500/month – income that she had no idea where she’d find.
Month after month, she worked as hard as she could trying to find new clients or come up with new ways to make money. She was seriously considering going back to work for another company and giving up on her dream to make her own business successful.
Think about it: Month after month of NOT earning the additional $1,500/month she needed, plus the stress of working so hard but not getting the results she wanted, plus the issues it caused in her family since she had agreed to bring in a certain amount of money but was unable to do it, plus the possibility of giving up on her dream to have a successful business she created…
What would you say that cost her?
It adds up to thousands of dollars each month that mompreneurs don’t earn because they don’t know how to give their prospects and clients exactly what they need, nor how to consistently attract more and more of those ideal prospects and clients to them so that they can grow and prosper.
Isn’t it time you turned the business you have into the business you (and your family) love?

“Her Practical Approach Helped Me to Figure Out What My Target Market Needs Most From Me”
Before working with Lara, I was feeling frustrated and discouraged with the pace of growth in my business. In just a few minutes, Lara helped me discover an ideal approach that suited my expertise and my passion for working with mompreneurs and their families. With some simple yet very powerful tools, Lara guided me to understand better how to market to this group effectively. Her practical approach helped me figure out what my target market needs most from me and how to tailor my services to satisfy their needs. ~ Sandra Huber, The Soulful Parent

“She Did Not Let Me Play Small or Sell Out on Myself”
I decided to sign up with Lara because I felt stuck and directionless in terms of where and how I wanted to take my business. I know I’m doing what I love but I needed a new business model. I’d spent months scheming up different components and things I’d like to do but had no clarity around the “bigger picture” and how everything fit in. I knew that I needed to take some big steps and I didn’t want to start the new year without a clear vision, plan and concrete to-do steps; I was ready for action. What I really wanted to get from my conversation with Lara was validation that I was in fact on the right track and based on her experience could/will have a profitable business while still being a hands on mom to my 2.5 yr old and 6 mo old.
I walked away from my call with Lara feeling inspired, empowered and confident. She did not let me play small or sell out on my self, in fact she called me out of my safe little “do nothing” space and encouraged me to go for the big thing and to trust that I had what it takes to achieve it. In fact it was during this call that I outlined my signature program. This is something I thought would be years down the road and now I’m taking the steps to make it a reality for this year.
If you are confused about what you’re doing, where your business is going, or feel like you need a better business model to help you achieve more financial prosperity then you need to call Lara. She’s a mom and a very successful business woman and she gets it. She truly has a gift at being able to see the bigger picture for yourself and your business and will help you define the steps you need to take to get you there. She has many tools in her tool kit and I can guarantee you’ll walk away knowing exactly what you need to do next. ~ Jennifer Powter, JenniferPowter.com

“In a Short 3 Months, I Have Accomplished More Than I Ever Believe I Could Have on My Own!”
In a short 3 months I have accomplished more than ever believe I could have on my own! My business has a name, a voice, a mission and purpose and I also have clients and am well on my way to making all my business dreams come true!
There is no doubt in my mind that I never would have been able to create this without Lara. Each step along the way she has offered her honest, sincere and expert advice. Lara helped me not only create a fantastic business that I can be proud of, but keep the necessary balance for my family as well, never letting me forget I’m a Mom first, and how to carve out the boundaries so both can co-exist. ~ Melissa Dery, The Golden Rule VA
