I’d like to introduce you all to Kristin Neudorfer of ActiveWoMOM. I was lucky to “meet” Kristin on Facebook via another CityMommy just shortly before the launch of ActiveWoMOM. She’s amazing!
I’d also like to congratulate her on the arrival of her precious daughter, Maile! Born on February 18 at 3:28pm, 7lbs 11oz!
Please tell us a little bit about your business/site.
ActiveWoMOM is a place that celebrates MOMs. Its mission is to inspire and motivate a mother to help her live the quality of life she and her family deserve. We cover topics from fitness, health, nutritional recipes, nutritional news and hot topics, as well as some fun features like weekly exercises MOMs can do in their living room, delicious low calorie drink recipes and a weekly feature of an amazing MOM who gives back and inspires others. MOMs tend to put themselves last so our goal is to put them first. We hope that our site provides an outlet, gives quality information she can use and makes her feel great about the amazing job she does every day in her home.
How long have you been in business? How did you get your business started?
We launched on January 8th 2011… so barely over a month! The concept flooded my head when I was driving my daughter to the pediatrician in early December 2010 and I had an overwhelming feeling that this wasn’t just another ‘fun daydream’ I tend to have. I called a connection I had made when I became a fitness instructor as I had heard she just started building websites and she immediately jumped on board. Less than a month later we were live and producing content regularly each week. It’s moved so fast, it’s exciting!
Is your business online, or a physical location or both?
We are online
What do you enjoy most about running your business/site?
I really believe that our children learn from everything we do, which is why I feel so strongly about promoting good health, physical fitness and a positive attitude in the house. If we make ourselves a priority then our children will recognize the importance of self worth and that will transfer on to them. This website gives me the opportunity to pass this message on to other MOMs. I really believe that what a mother does in the home is amazing and she doesn’t get the recognition she always deserves. It’s so easy to get frazzled, overwhelmed and stretched thin and it makes me feel better knowing that maybe this site can help her to feel that even though the bad days or those feelings can exist, the good ones can evolve as well.
Is there a favorite product or service that you offer?
I love our weekly Move-It MOM move because it provides a new and easy exercise any MOM can do in her living room. I also love our MOMmy Hour every Thursday. My husband is a fantastic bartender at Pesos in Queen Anne and he’s developed some really yummy and low calorie options for MOMs to enjoy.
Anything else you would like to share about your business? Being a working mom? Etc…
I’m new to the working MOM, work from home game with my second daughter due tomorrow. Juggling all the aspects of starting and running a business with a toddler tugging on your pants leg is difficult, but I have to say I’m having a blast and loving every minute of it. I love being a MOM and I love the concept and mission behind ActiveWoMOM. Its a really wonderful feeling to believe in everything you do.
Thanks for the opportunity to answer these questions!
