Mompreuner Branding

You are inspired by what you see on Pinterest, you sell on Etsy or are innovative, creative and a mom! Hobbies turned into a business, an independent consultants for a direct sales company, or realtors, many moms are business owners or aspire to be.  So, what do mompreneurs need to know about branding and starting a company?  Ali Craig, neuro-emotional brander and three time best selling author
 shows us what we need to know.

* Share your passion and be very specific  Know your product or service inside and out.  Know your market and who you want to target.  Continue to stay up on the current trends of your area of expertise and evolve.

* Don't worry about others, be as unique as you are.  There will always be naysayers and there will always be competition.  It is important however to be realistic and maybe listen to the hidden advice from naysayers without taking in the negativity.  Be you, but keep an eye on the competition as you can learn from them, too.

* Be eco-friendly everywhere, from materials, packaging, and shipping. The more conscious you can be, the better you are. This will allow your brand to be more sustainable and entice customers, due to your efforts in being socially conscious.

* Once you fill your audiences first need then look ahead to fulfilling their remaining,  For example, if you are selling hair accessories for little girls, you could also sell matching socks or bracelets.   Adding something for mom, by selling mother daughter matching items could be an option, too!

* Decide if you want this to just be a hobby or you want to make it into something bigger.  just because you make the best salsa does not mean you need to start bottle and sell it.  
If the drive to pursue something bigger is there and you are willing to work hard to make your dream a reality  GO FOR IT!

Safe Halloween

Candy, costumes, pumpkins and excited kids all sum up Halloween!  Too often however, parents are haunted with worry about lurking dangers on this otherwise festive holiday.  Dr. Sheena Banerjee with AllKids Urgent Care is here with advice on how to keep your kids healthy, safe and injury free.

The Costume  When purchasing costumes, make sure your kids' costumes are reflective or are easy to see.  If not, you can always add reflective tape.  

Masks, Make-up and More  Stay away from masks that may block your child's vision.  Use the right kid friendly materials for face painting and stay away from decorative contact lenses as they can cause eye irritation and reactions

Trick or Treating - Remember also the rules of the road still apply to both drivers and pedestrians on Halloween!

The Pumpkin  Carving a Jack-o-lantern can be dangerous with knives and fire not being kid friendly.  There are lots of alternatives for kids to help you make a festive pumpkin, such as stickers, stencils, etc.

Eat Before Treats  Make sure your child has a full meal before they head out trick or treating.  They will be less likely to over indulge in candy

Check All Candy  Go through all candy with the kids.  Toss out anything that looks tampered with, such as holes or already opened.  Throw out any homemade treats, apples, etc.
