San Diego, CA (PressExposure) December 11, 2013 -- In only 3 days of submitting the Best Mom Products podcast "where mompreneurs share their adventures in business," it landed in the coveted iTunes "New & Noteworthy" category. Rachel Olsen, Host digs deep into the why and how of these entrepreneurs succeed while managing family. They are now reaching their goal of inspiring women, moms to start their own businesses.
Rachel Olsen created a podcast for mom entrepreneurs to inspire them to start, build and grow their business while managing a family. In 2010 while bringing a kids medical device to the consumer market, she had a challenging time finding stories of real business experience online.
"There was a massive amount of information but it was difficult to cut through the fluff," said Rachel. She wanted to hear candid stories focusing on the nuances of business, the challenges entrepreneurs faced and how they overcame them. What she found was a lot of overnight success stories leaving out the how-to details, especially costly mistakes. In 2011, she launched the Best Mom Products website to provide resources to mompreneurs.
"With 2 young children and working as a part-time marketing consultant, it was challenging to find the time to go to networking functions and conferences. The medium of video creates a more personable and educational way to learn," explains Rachel.
In late 2103, she brought the stories of these women to iTunes and created a podcast. In only 3 days of submitting the podcast to iTunes, it was recognized as "New & Noteworthy." This exposure is helping Best Mom Products inspire thousands of entrepreneurs trying to create and build small businesses.
Mindee Harp, Inventor, Boogie Wipes & Founder, Juicebox Consulting describes Rachel as "Energy and a journalists charm + big picture planning and exactly the right amount of business acumen and technology know how! Rachel is fantastic and connecting the connectors and delivering powerful media to better the way you work and live."
There are 7.8 million women owned businesses in the United States. Best Mom Products hopes to educate those women on the challenges they face by providing how-to tips from other entrepreneurs that have been through what they are going through. They hope to inspire millions of women to start businesses that will allow them to create value for others while being able to be present for their families in the way they want to be.
