Meet Kim of Do-N-Slide
Tell us a little about you . . . I am a mother, a behavior analyst and a speech language pathologist. I am also the co-founder of Our Kids to Yours LLC. My work with special needs children has driven me to create a wonderful new product for all children called the Do-N-Slide. What is your business and where can we find it? My company creates educational kids products. Our first product is called a Do-N-Slide. A Do-N-Slide is a picture 'to-do' list for children that can be used to fulfill a number of desirable goals. Do-N-Slide is made of board book material and it has 6 slider channels which are used to hold picture cards. The first picture pack to be released with the Do-N-Slide board is the 'Help Around the House' pack. A Do-N-Slide comes with 20 picture cards, 6 blank cards (for personalization) and 7 day of the week cards. It also comes with a sturdy plastic pocket to store the picture cards when they are not in use. The pictures are inserted in the left side of the board into the 'To Do' column and as tasks are completed they are slid (either by child or parent) to the right side of the board--the 'All Done' column. It's such a simple concept, but I can’t tell you how using it truly changes a child’s behavior for the better. It can also increase language development, improve ability to organize and sequence, clarify your spoken word, increase independence and can reduce resistance to routines and or activities. http://www.do-n-slide.com/ Is it mom-owned, invented, created? It is all three! Both owners, inventors and creators are moms of young children. A little about your entrepreneurial journey so far? Its been a long, fun, rocky road. Just 2 years ago I was sitting in my room making picture to-do lists by hand wondering why I could not find anything like it in a local store . Now I can tell all the local parents to buy it at our Local Learning Express or at our local teacher supply store or at the do-n-slide website. Where else can people find you? http://www.do-n-slide.com/ kim@ourkidstoyours.com http://www.ourkidstoyours.com/ http://mommymillionaire.ning.com/profile/Kim Anything else you’d like to share? Because I felt the need to give back to the community that birthed the idea of a Picture-To Do List, we at Our Kids to Yours LLC have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each Do-N-Slide unit to Autism research.

Meet Claire of My.Tupperware
Tell us a little about you . . .
I am a single divorced mom to a wonderful 3 year old little girl! I used to work Underwriting Homeowners insurance but left due to medical reasons this year and I am now on disability. I have Hyperthyroidism, Chronic Epstein Barr, Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, Celatic Disease, Anxiety disorder, and I suffer from Panic attacks. I am currently working with an army of doctors to try and get my life back to normal. Since I am home bound most of the time (and only 29 years old) I live online and cherish the wonderful friends that I have made online.
What is your business and where can we find it?
I sell Tupperware through my website www.my2.tupperware.com/claireevans and I also sell hair bows, baby onesies and jewelry on Etsy http://www.miaclaire.etsy.com/ . I am planning on launching a new website, www.miaclaire.com in the upcoming months. I am excited about this new site. I will have items not only for mom and baby but special edition items from fellow Mommy bloggers .
Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?
Tupperware is a good old Mommy Approved item! They offer so many wonderful solutions to every day storage needs as well as some great new items to help Mommy relax and take 5 for herself!
Mia Claire is mom-owned and Mom-created!! I scoured the internet and trade shows for some of the best Mom made, Mom invented items! I am excited to showcase these on my up and coming site!! Stay tuned!
A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?
I started blogging a few months ago. I started small and simple with a blog about my Single Mom journey, and then I got into making baby onesies for friends and jewelry for myself and making hair bows for my daughter. I decided to start selling some of my creations on Etsy.
My Single Mom blog soon exploded and with blessings from some of my fellow mommy bloggers, I started my second blog chronicling my fight with Chronic Epstein Barr, one of the diseases that I suffer from.
I am now a new Contributor to The Posh Parent, a new and up and coming Social Network. I will be writing about kid's… recipes and fun homemade things that you can do with your children that are quick and easy!
Where else can people find you?
I can be found on Twitter (Tupperwareclair) and on Facebook (Claire Borne Evans.)
I can also be found on a bunch of Ning Social networks and as a Contributor on http://theposhparent.ning.com/
Anything else you'd like to share?
I am excited and passionate about what I do! Please visit my blogs and my sites and comment if you like what I do! Comments keep me going!!!
Thank you!

Tell us a little about you . . .
I’m a professional organizer, speaker, trainer, and author of the 1-2-3…Get Organized series. My husband and I have been married for 33 years and we have two grown daughters. We currently work for Shelter Care as foster parents for teenage girls. What is your business and where can we find it? I have two businesses: Distinctives: Helping You Master the Key Areas of Life and Business (interpersonal relationships, clarity of focus and priorities, maximizing time and energy and organizing your space). I am a facilitator for Myers-Briggs personality type inventories. I do team building seminars with businesses and families, and individual appointments with people who want to discover their unique and distinctive personality type. ww.Distinctives.org. 1-2-3…Get Organized evolved out of the organizing piece of Distinctives. Not only do I help people organize their home, office, and time, but I give seminars and workshops to businesses, moms groups, etc. I have written 17 books in the 1-2-3…Get Organized series, which can be found at http://www.1-2-3getorganized.com/. And I have a blog on organizing tips at http://www.1-2-3getorganized.blogspot.com/. A little about your entrepreneur journey so far? During my 26 years coaching within a non-profit, I became fascinated with personality profiles. After becoming trained as a Myers-Briggs Personality Type facilitator, I started my own business helping people master the key areas of life and business: interpersonal relationships, clarity of focus and priorities, maximizing time and energy, and organizing space - both at home and at the office. Interpersonal relationships: I conduct team building seminars and individual coaching based on personality. Some of my clients have included The World Bank, The Department of the Navy, The Embassy of Jamaica, boards of directors, non-profits, families, married and engaged couples. I also help inviduals discover their own personality profiles as they grapple with careers, college majors, mid-life crisis, and self-image. Clarity of focus and priorities: I help people rethink life or career based on personality type, priorities, passions, and giftedness. Maximizing time and energy: time management, efficiency, and scheduling. Organizing space at home or at the office: functional rooms or work spaces allowing people to work at top efficiency. My specialty in this field is helping people downsize to smaller residences. Combining my personality-watching and my professional organizing, I discovered that those who are most overwhelmed by organization are often very creative and artistic. My recently released 1-2-3...Get Organized series of books and workbooks was written for this audience - colorful, glossy, short books. Each book addresses only one organizing task and provides three simple steps to accomplish that task. A sample of the 16 titles: Three Steps to Decluttering, Three Steps to Downsizing to a Smaller Residence, Time Management at the Office, Time Management for the College Student, Organizing Your Office, Clever Cleaning, Organizing Your Kitchen. Where else can people find you?

Anything else you’d like to share? My passions: - Creating an atmosphere which allows others to be successful - To help people make home a refuge rather than a crisis center
