Hello! I’m Lindsay! Some of you may know me as an entrepreneur, others as a mom, or perhaps both! My husband, Drew, and I started our first business, a full-service marketing agency, together in 2009. It’s been an amazing partnership working together and building our businesses from the ground up. I usually say that he’s the talent and I’m the strategist behind the services that we provide that have helped hundreds of small and medium businesses find their way in a competitive online marketplace. As we grew our company, I also spent time working in the promotional marketing industry and had the pleasure of representing some amazing brands like Buick, Chevy, Nintendo, PS4, Elizabeth Arden, Taylor Swift, State Farm, Allstate, Covergirl, and others. Interacting with people at the events was a lot of fun and a great balance to all the time Drew and I spent behind the computer.
In 2012, we launched our first product-based business along with my mother-in-law and within the first year, our patent-pending merchandise was sold to every US state and in 14 international countries. We also welcomed our first baby, Andrew. As our family has grown with Aidan and Avalynn, our business ventures have expanded to other products and services. In 2015, our entrepreneurial adventures took us to Utah for three years, where we fell in love with the amazing parks our kids enjoyed, wonderful people and neighbors, and beautiful mountain scenery. We found our dream house and have temporarily relocated back to Florida with family to save up for our forever home in Utah. Growing businesses while also growing a family is hard work. We couldn’t do it without our village and we are greateful for the opportunity to do both at the same time! Currently our days are split between marketing and manufacturing products that are then shipped off to Amazon Prime (my other best friend). Transitioning to Amazon fulfillment has freed up time to do mom things, like help out in my kindergartener’s classroom, and focus more on my blog. I absolutely LOVE what I get to do!
WHAT IS PAPERCLIPS AND PACIS?
I launched this blog a couple years ago as a place to share my passion for motherhood and entrepreneurship by connecting people like me with brands and products I love along with resources that have helped me as a mompreneur. I enjoy creating unique content and helping other entrepreneurs tell their stories in a way that really connects with others.
I’m not one of those motherhood experts who claims to have all of these methods and theories. But I believe my kids are my greatest accomplishment, especially through Endometriosis, and each day I try to be a better mom than the day before. I have the same approach to business. Each year brings new challenges to overcome and lessons to learn. It’s amazing to see just how far we’ve come and I enjoy sharing everything we’ve learned with anyone who is ready to grow their business as an entrepreneur. I’ve recently decided to put some of that passion towards helping other moms discover their dreams and live the life they truly want to live. By sharing all of the lessons I’ve learned in motherhood and entrepreneurship over the years. I hope I can help other families find a way to take those next steps along life’s craziest adventures: entrepreneurial parenthood!
In the very near future, I will be releasing an amazing new community that will help people stay accountable to their goals as well as teach moms how to make money from home without getting scammed or annoying all of their family and friends. If this sounds like something that would help your family, send me a message and I will be sure to invite you along!
