Meet Theresa Ceniccola
Theresa is serial entrepreneur and a home-based business owner of more than 25 years. She began as a freelance writer and marketing consultant in 1994, when she discovered she could get paid to write…on her own schedule…in her own home…while wearing yoga pants. Now, after years of living the business owner life, she is officially unemployable in the traditional sense. In 2018, she joined her business partner Susie Fife as co-owner of a brand agency in Richmond, Va, called Red Orange Studio where she gets to use her creativity and organizational skills in a whole new way. She considers herself blessed to make a living doing what she loves and working with others who share her values faith, family and business (in that order!).
In 2010, Theresa Ceniccola entered the blogosphere as The Christian Mompreneur—a mentor to moms who are running a business that supports their values of faith and family. She was the founder of the International Christian Mompreneur Network, on online community that empowers and equips moms to build profitable businesses through training courses, membership programs, masterminds and private coaching. As the ICM Network grew, Theresa built her team to support the women in the group and in 2019, the ICM Network expanded to become part of the National Association of Christian Women Entrepreneurs.
A self-proclaimed recovering control freak, Theresa is on a mission to encourage moms take imperfect action and let go of guilt and fear so they can experience the blessings of running a business while raising a family. You may have seen her writing on Catholic Mom, Crosswalk, the National Association of Christian Women Entrepreneurs or MarketMommy.
Theresa has a problem saying “no” to any project that nurtures confidence and creativity, which explains why she was a Girl Scout leader, a Destination Imagination team manager and a volunteer coach and board member for Girls on the Run South Hampton Roads.
Fueled by an adventurous spirit, Theresa loves to hike, run, bike and explore nature’s beauty. But she is happiest at home, laughing with her better half and college sweetheart, and their three imperfectly wonderful children.
