Meet Ann of Sharmooz

Tell us a little about you . . .

I am the proud mother of two wonderful children and a very supportive husband. I left corporate sales to become a stay at home mom. After my second child, I had an epiphany to solve an aged old problem, thus The Sharmooz was born.

What is your business and where can we find it?

I’m a online retailer at www.sharmooz.com.  My products can also be found on amazon, other online retailers, children boutiques, salons and spas.

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

I invent the Patent Pending Baby Sharmooz Satin Headrest that may reduce and/or prevent infant balding. My son started to develop the unattractive bald spot. I have always used satin pillowcases to protect my hair from drying out, then why not work for babies. I developed a safe headrest (not a pillow) and saved my son’s hair. This launched my luxurious satin line of family products. Satin Pillowcases, Satin Pillow Covers, Satin Head Wraps and more.

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?

My strategies have adjusted with the changing times. I went through three website redesigns, product updates, marketing focus changes, learned what is html J, wrote a book (Don’t Rock That Baby! The Other Advice: 46 steps to survive the first year of motherhood) and met and bonded with great women along the way.

Where else can people find you? 

I started a blog – http://mommyexecutive.blogspot.com to help moms keep it together. A work in progress, but will focus on organizing, de-stressing, and mom features. I just joined facebook and twitter. My name is Sharmooz.

Anything else you’d like to share?

Passion goes a long way in navigating owning your business. It’s hard work, but the love and passion for what you do will get you through the tough moments.
