Parent Club Profiles | Julie Cole

Name please.

Julie Cole

Your Website?

What’s your specialty? (work-wise – you’re probably pretty special at a lot of things)
I have three business partners and we are each responsible for different departments within our portfolios. I focus on Sales and I am also the Company Spokesperson.

What’s your shameless plug? (books, blogs, bling, etc.)

Mabel’s Labels is the leading provider of labels in North America. We have won many awards, including the coveted Momentum Award, RBC Women Entrepreneur of Canada Awards 2009. We have been featured on The View, Live with Regis and Kelly, The Racheal Ray Show, Breakfast Television, The Marilyn Denis Show, and many others.

Best thing about your work:
Being in a position to engage with our community of customers and Mabel fans. That interaction is what makes this fun!

Parent or not a parent?
Parent x6

Share a typical Tuesday (really we want to hear how you “do it all”)

Are you ready to be exhausted?

During the school year:

7:00am – kids get up, 3 biggies off to school bus at 7:45am

I feed three little ones, quick email check and tweet.

8:30am – nanny Hazel appears and takes over, I head into office for a Manager’s meeting. If that’s my only meeting for the day, I head home afterwards

12:00noon – I drive the kids in JK and SK to school for the afternoon. Baby sleeps, I work on my laptop.

3:10pm – 5 kids come bursting through the door. We go through agendas, homework items, get people fed and changed for the evening activities which include dancing, Scouts, violin, hockey and any number of other things they are into. I also pack up school lunches for the next day immediately after they return home from school.

8:00pm – throw 6 tired kids into bed, and hop back on the laptop. I usually go to bed around midnight.

Do you blog?
But of course!

I blog at Mabel’s Labels at

Do you tweet? Who doesn’t?

Link to a post/portfolio/recipe piece you think shows your most supreme skills:
This is a tough one! I recently wrote a post that many parents could relate to:

Wallflower or social butterfly?
I’m a pretty social gal!

Name 3 people you would like to meet-in-person from Twitter (add why so we can follow them too)…
This is tough! I think I’ve met most of the twitter folks I love! I’ll give you a couple of friends who are definitely worth a follow because they are interesting and engaging:
