Meet Tuned In Parent Cindi McNew


First of all, congratulations to Cindi and her husband, Don, on the pending adoption of a precious baby they’ve been caring for since she was a newborn!

You know those people with contagious smiles? Cindi’s one of them. She’s a happy mom of two and mompreneur of two businesses. She’s the owner of Cindy McNew Photography {Signature Homes} and a business developer and independent consultant for Rodan and Fields Dermatologists. Busy much? And she’s candid about her kids coming first being natural and hard at the same time.

“The most challenging thing about being a mompreneur is balancing everything!! I have always had the mindset that my family comes first . . . but having a job you love and receiving such awesome recognition for it can sometimes throw a curveball and challenge what is truly most important.” -Cindi McNew

Though she’s an award-winning photographer and has had a passion for photography since childhood, Cindi has decided to put her photography business on hold temporarily to care for her youngest. Summoning the courage and strength to put one’s personal dream on hold for the good of the family is a reality many mompreneurs (and a growing number of work-at-home-dads) have to face.

But for Cindi, motherhood itself is also a personal dream — after all, who says you can only have one? She and Don pursued parenthood together for four years before they considered adoption. And now not a day goes by that they’re not grateful for their role in their daughters’ lives.

“My girls and my husband have changed me and I strive to be the best mom and wife they could ever hope for. While being a mom is sometimes just a title for some . . . I believe it is my God-given destiny and my purpose in life.” -Cindi McNew

Right now, she’s raising her two girls while working her Rodan and Fields Dermatologists business. And she still enjoys the occasional photography gig. Photography was her first “baby;” she’s passionate about it and she’s good at it. It’s only a matter of time before Cindi’s back to running two businesses.

“I feel by taking charge of my life I am able to teach my children that you can be successful at anything you put your heart and soul into.” ~Cindi McNew, happy mom, mompreneur
