Baby Modeling

Sibylla Nash is a journallist by training but when her daughter began modeling at 4 months old, her writing took a different turn. Two years ago she published Baby Modeling & Beyond: From the Stroller to the Red Carpet. This book gives you the real deal about building a career in the entertainment industry for your child. You can find more great information at Sibylla’s Blog, Star Baby LA.

What is the hardest thing you have encountered about running your own business and how have you overcome that? The hardest part I’ve found in running my own business is being consistent with the time I spend on marketing and promoting.  Especially as a writer and publisher, there never seems to be enough hours in the day to create new work, promote the old work and do a little
thing called parenting and working outside of the home.

What is your #1 business tip for ‘Growing Up (a business) Fast’?  Research! You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, you can prevent a lot of mistakes by reading about others who have started a business similar to yours.

What one business tool could you NOT live without? Aside from high speed internet, my Blackberry.  I love being connected and on top of things even when I’m away from my computer.

What are your words of encouragement to other women who want to have their own successful business? Don’t get discouraged.  I remember reading somewhere that JK Rowlings’ Harry Potter had been turned down by every major publishing house before she got her deal and look at her now – she’s richer than the Queen of England!  So if you have an idea for your business and it’s not happening as quickly as you like, keep the faith, you never know what’s right around the corner.
