Business Baby Shower Contest
Here is a fabulous new contest for mom entrepreneurs. Baby Dipper is a sponsor for the contest and I am also going to enter the contest, too. This is a great way to help all mom entrepreneurs gain attention for our accomplishments. Please pass the word along via your blog, Facebook, and/or Twitter. You can follow the Business Baby Shower on Twitter at @BusinessBShower or on Facebook. Here is the first part of the press release from January 1 announcing the contest:
Business Baby Shower Launches: Contest celebrates entrepreneurial moms and all they do to birth and grow a business
January 1, 2010 – Barrington, NH: The Business Baby Shower, a new contest celebrating entrepreneurial moms and all they do to birth and grow a successful company while balancing family life, was recently launched as a partnership between The Mom Entrepreneur and Corporate Mom DropOuts.
The contest, which runs from January 1 – April 30, 2010, will create awareness of mom entrepreneur companies and their products and services. Participants will complete an application process as well as submit a two minute video of their business for consideration by a panel of judges.
“As a mom entrepreneur myself, I’ve found that starting and growing my own business was very similar to the process of birthing and raising my children. There’s a lot of love, dedication, commitment, hard work – and occasional frustrations – that go into both,” said Lucinda Cross, of Corporate Mom DropOuts, co-founder of the Contest. “We’ve created a forum that recognizes and honors the unique challenges that go into simultaneously raising children and ‘birthing’ a business.”
