Mompreneurs use Motherhood to Inspire Business

Kansas City Mompreneur

The Mommy Wrap was definitely inspired by motherhood.  I would have never thought up this idea if my sweet little babies hadn’t suffered from colic.  Lindsay Shively, news anchor for KSHB 41 Action News of Kansas City, in her ninth month of pregnancy, did a story on the creation of The Mommy Wrap, along with the creation and story on local “mompreneuer,” Egreis Gjergjani of Itty Bitty Toes.  Egreis and I went through two pregnancies together, our youngest children just weeks apart. I watched Egreis launch her business and she has really developed a successful well-known brand.  During all of which, I have …
