The Pixel Boutique: A Mompreneur in Technology has partnered with Lifetime Moms to introduce you to some outstanding women. These women are a lot like you—they range from stay-at-home moms to successful career women, entrepreneurs and CEOs of their homes. They all attended Tory Johnson’s Spark & Hustle women’s conference this summer to learn more about growing their small business and found they learned something about themselves. We’ll feature one Lifetime Moms attendee from each city’s stop on the Spark & Hustle conference.

Meet Nicole Bateman

Technology is taking over our lives. So how does one find balance if your job is IN technology? Nicole Bateman’s family is the answer.

“I am first and foremost a wife to my college sweetheart and a mom to three teenage boys,” says Bateman. She is also a proud Chihuahua owner.

The mompreneur from Vail, Arizona, is a graphic and web designer, who customizes websites and blogs.

“I love pretty, girly things on and off the web. Fonts and html make me simply giddy,” says Bateman.

Her business, The Pixel Boutique, aims to help both new and experienced bloggers and small businesses achieve their online goals.

“Whether it’s choosing a blog platform or developing a brand through design, I enjoy working closely with a small number of clients at one time. In that way, I am able to give focused and individual attention and collaborate with each client from concept through completion,” says Bateman.

Bateman attended the Spark & Hustle conference in Phoenix, Arizona, and took away helpful tips from Tory Johnson.

“She talked to the idea of not being afraid to let a potential client walk away from a deal. When a potential client doesn’t see the value in your product or service as it relates to your rates, it isn’t a time to second guess yourself and compromise. She reminded me to be confident in the value of what I have to offer,” says Bateman.

“I wanted to attend Spark & Hustle to not only gain useful tips and resources, but to be encouraged and inspired by Tory and other women of influence. And I wasn’t disappointed! I came away with practical action steps and new ideas to implement. But more than that, I came away with a renewed sense of determination and confidence.”
