Well hey there!
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Listen…I’m going to be honest with you. I love running my business, but what I love even more is living my life and spending time with my family.
As such, I’m trying to limit the time I spend in front of the computer, wading through my inbox. I highly recommend you do the same.
There’s a big, bright, beautiful world out there.
Oh, you’re still here? Ok, then I guess I should try to answer a few of your questions so you can get on with living.
1. I’m no longer doing one-on-one consulting, coaching, or advice via email.
2. My assistant and I read every email that comes in, but there are times when we cannot respond to each. Thank you for your understanding.
3. The Mogul Mom is not currently taking on any affiliate partnerships or joint ventures, and we’re not accepting submissions for features, product reviews or interviews for the foreseeable future.
4. The best way to tell me what you think or ask a question about a particular topic is to post a comment on a specific post or contact me @heathALL on Twitter. I can’t respond to all questions, but do so whenever possible. Plus, I think you’ll find that our community of readers here on The Mogul Mom is quite knowledgable and responsive.
5. If you’re looking for information on a particular subject, please utilize our extensive, searchable archives or the search box on the right sidebar.
For anything else, please see the following FAQ section.
1. Are you currently accepting guest posts?
Thanks for your interest, but at this time, we are not accepting guest posts.
2. I’m looking for referrals to manufacturers – can you help?
I’ve been where you are and I take great pleasure in saving you time and frustration. Please allow ample time for these manufacturers to respond to your inquiry – they are very busy and likely in a different time zone. Also, my experience with manufacturing is ONLY in apparel (specifically, baby apparel). I do not have experience or referrals in any other area. For all other manufacturer inquiries, please search Alibaba.com, MadeInChina.com or GlobalSources.com.
AMGL (Apparel Manufacturing Group Ltd.)
They are the ones who made my products overseas. You can contact Rachel So at email@example.com and/or visit their website at www.amgl.com. They are a full service “door to door” manufacturer –they will take care of everything, from sourcing materials (fabric, buttons, etc), package design, cut/sew, packing, shipping, customs clearance, etc.
I initially had my products made at a US manufacturer called Rice Mills and worked closely with Linda Lednum, the design director. Rice Mills closed in 2006 and Linda began freelancing as a pattern maker (she’s in South Carolina) and working for Wise Base, a full service manufacturer as a liaison. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I so enjoyed working with Linda—she has a wealth of experience working with large & small companies (Lands’ End, One Step Ahead, Sears, JC Penney, etc) and she’s a pleasure to work with.
3. I’m looking for sales reps for my product – know any?
Probably the second most frequently asked question I get. It’s been awhile since I employed sales reps – I sold my products in 2008 – but you’ll find some great resources in Sales Reps 101. Be sure to check the comments, too!
4. What people, products, and services do you recommend for mom entrepreneurs?
I put everything right in my Little Black Book for you. Also, I only suggest products, services and sites that I personally use.
5. Are you on social media?
6. Can you suggest other websites that might be helpful for mom entrepreneurs?
