Connie Peters is an Elite Mompreneur member based out of Vancouver, BC.

What inspired you to become an entrepreneur?
I had quit my job in software technology to be a stay-at-home mom, but within a few months I was looking for ways to use my creativity and get out and meet other moms in my new city at the time, Edmonton.

What’s the best part about owning your own business?
I knew before I even started Modern Mama that my business had to be something I could do from home, because being at home around my girls and being able to be flexible around their schedules was my main priority.

After I get the girls off to school, I usually exercise and then sit down in the kitchen and tackle a few to-do’s like writing a blog post, coaching a new licensee or sending off sales emails.
