NewMommyOasis.com Wins Top Honor in Moms Business Competition
StartupNation.com Honors Nation’s Leading Moms in Business
Dana Point, CA – October 19, 2010– From among thousands of contestants, NewMommyOasis.com has been ranked #34 in StartupNation.com’s 2010 Leading Moms in Business competition (www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-in-business), sponsored by Infusionsoft (www.infusionsoft.com).
Over 709,000 votes were cast in support of the 2010 contestants, reflecting immense interest and supportiveness for moms building businesses at the same time they tend to their families.
“There’s been a sea change among moms as they’ve come to realize that adding entrepreneurship to their lives brings exhilaration and immense gratification, not to mention supplemental—sometimes primary—income to their families in these dicey economic times,” says Rich Sloan, chief startupologist and co-founder of StartupNation.
“It is such an honor to have been chosen as a Leading Mom in Business. My hope is that NewMommyOasis continues to bring its readers information and support on the challenges of being a new mom,” says founder, Holly Whitmore. The winner’s profile for NewMommyOasis.com can be found at http://www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-in-business/contestant/8315/index.php
The 2010 Leading Moms in Business ranking, conducted in collaboration with Ladies Who Launch (www.ladieswholaunch.com) and The National Association for Moms in Business (www.mibn.org), highlights some of the dominant trends, motivations and attributes among moms in business. They include:
· A great eye for providing attractive discounts, coupons, savings and value, all especially important to consumer moms of the recession era.
· A likelihood to come up with innovative products and solutions to address the challenging maze of motherhood. It’s an environment that demands resourcefulness.
· Conscience-driven business, where “doing well” is just fine, but the real rush comes from doing good.
· The attraction of being your own boss looms large for moms wanting to take control they just can’t find in a day job.
· Sustainable solutions and responsible business practices are increasingly paramount.
· Making the most of social media for business benefit is seemingly a birthright for the socially adept moms.
The full results of the 2010 Leading Moms in Business ranking are available on StartupNation’s website at http://www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-in-business.
