Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
If you’re a mom who has dreamed of owning your own successful business, then you might find the right opportunity within More Organized Mom. Of course drive alone won’t get you through it. Someone with the right knowledge and the will to grow MOM into what it has the potential to become is exactly what this business needs. The real question would be, is that you?
I got an opportunity to talk with Angie Morris, the mom behind MOM, to find out what it is that she’s looking for.
How old is More Organized Mom (MOM) and what are some of the products you sell?
More Organized Mom is four years old. We sell calendars, notepads and checklist to help keep moms organized. Our MOM Calendar—a weekly planning tool that allows you to record everything from appointments, To Do’s and dinner– was in Parents magazine twice in 2005. The editor of Parents, Sally Lee, is quoted as saying “Finally, a planning tool that works for everyone.”
What type of person are you looking for when it comes to someone purchasing your business? Do you have any requirements?
Ideally, we are looking for a mom. But she should also be an entrepreneur who has business expertise. Someone who has sold to women would be a plus. Someone who can recognize a company with a great brand, great products and great potential. Someone who can take this company to the next level. All start-up investments have already been made and the buyer doesn’t have to worry about that, however we did feel we needed more capital to properly market our products and expand our customer base. We are also considering partnerships.
