Ever since our daughter was born, I have been fortunate enough to work a flexible schedule, close to home. This has been important to us because Zoe was a premature baby, born 13 weeks early, and had many special needs, especially in her early days. I’m a big fan of entrepreneurs any day of the week (especially women entrepreneurs), but I have a special soft spot for women who take the entrepreneurial leap to support a family-oriented lifestyle.
So the other day, I was sitting at the therapist’s office waiting for Zoe to finish her occupational therapy session, and I saw a stack of Tupperware brochures. Being an organizational nut, I naturally gravitate toward these kinds of things. My husband calls me “The Containerizer.” I think he means it affectionately….
Anyway, I was leafing through the materials and I was impressed with the package. It was neat, organized and branded well to the consultant who left the brochures. Anybody who knows me knows that I am a branding and internet marketing nut, so I carted the package home and looked up the consultant’s Tupperware website.
I don’t think I’ve ever met this woman, but I wanted to give her a shout out to support her as an entrepreneur, as a mom and as somebody with a great sense of humor. I love the fact that she found her way to an entrepreneurial opportunity that gives her a creative outlet. If you check out her website, you’ll see what I mean (hint, it has to do with acting, parties and drag queens). Sound a little risque for a mom? Not at all, but you’ll have to go find out for yourself.
If you’re in the mood to organize, order yourself some Tupperware. You’ll get some great products and you can support Maggie at the same time. Now that’s a deal!
