Mommy Matters is an online parenting and lifestyle magazine that aim to support you in your child’s development, your business – as well as your own personal development.

I was hosted at the last networking breakfast held in Johannesburg and truly had a wonderful morning. @WoolworthsS_SA sponsored a glorious breakfast and we were introduced to the “Littleworld of rewards” programme. Do go and read how this can be beneficial to you as a mom, granny, or aunt. 🙂

I met an entirely new base of networking Moms who like me is trying to have it all –  the man, the children, my own business. The breakfast includes a speaker and I was amazed and grateful when I could relate to so much of what our speaker said. We also received an awesome goody-bag to take home, as well as a chance to win some amazing lucky-draw prizes on the spot. Yes, I won a spot prize at my first breakfast. Yes, it was from the sex therapists. Yes, Mom‘s like and have sex too.

Every Mompreneurs gets a turn to showcase her business in sharing what her business entails and how we can help each other by networking, word of mouth and hearty discussions around many topics, not just business! I would highly recommend a morning networking breakfast if you are a Mompreneurs.

Mommy Matters has kindly offered me the opportunity to give away a spot at the year end function:

Wednesday 13 November 2013, 09h30 – 12h00
GreenGenes Wellness Centre, 39 St Albans Avenue, Craighall Park

I would love for you to join me on Wednesday.

I wish you enough,

I attended a focus group on what has always been known to me as “my school card”. When I got mine it was probably a decade ago because yes, my kids are that old. All the moms at the school my kids attended all naturally made whatever school our kids attended the beneficiary. That said, this is where my donations go:

Times they are a changing! What the evening was about, was making consumers aware that “my school card” had evolved and if you check out their easy to navigate web site you will be amazed!

It is no longer just a card for people with school going children wanting to raise extra money for their school.  It is now a really funky fund raising initiative for literally anyone! You don’t need not conceive a thing and donate money to your favourite charity! You can now choose if you would like your donations to go to “My School” “My Village” or “My Planet” or, you can split your donation between three different charities. A list of the different charities under each umbrella are available on their web site.

It was a very relaxed, informative evening held at Athol Place Boutique in Sandton next to a crackling fire,  a divine venue! The food was fabulous and the welcome drinks, gorgeous! The presenter knew her product, was approachable and just a really lovely atmosphere. Naturally we loved a bit of a gift bag to go home with.

I got to meet someone I have admired on Twitter for years. The one and only fantastic lady who started the “Twitter Blanket Drive” when she had just over 200 followers………… four years ago! I was in Twitter Celebrities heaven. I met @MelanieMinnaar !!!……. and she knew who I was! That was HUGE!

I drove home elated! 🙂 Amazing what a Tweet can do.

Follow  “My School” “My Village” or “My Planet” on Twitter and on FaceBook. I have invited my friends to join both pages.

Thank you for an awesome, informative evening!

I wish you enough,
