In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, and a love-filled week, we’re introducing the first of our Mompreneurs We Love series.
Now we love all mompreneurs, you understand, so let's start with one of our faves…
Mompreneur: Candace Alper
Company: Name Your Tune (www.nameyourtune.com)
What she does: Founded in 2003, Name Your Tune makes personalized CDs for kids. Think, “Little Charlie had a farm,” etc. The two volumes of CDs contain all your kids’ favourite songs, with their names inserted seamlessly right in the middle. Name Your Tune also has tons of other great personalized items for kids on its web site.
Why we love her: Name Your Tune CDs were huge hits with our kids. Many an hour was spent rocking out (okay, kids in the back of the car on the way to the sewer – but still, rocking out) to Candace’s compilations. Candace is also a mompreneurs’ mompreneur, if you know what we mean. She’s experienced all aspects of balancing a successful business and motherhood, she’s incredibly well connected (find her @NameYourTuneCDs) and knows everyone, and is a huge supporter of other entrepreneurial moms. We’re not the only ones who are fans, either: Babble.com picked her as one of their Top 50 Mompreneurs.
Good to know: Candace is now blogging right here at Yummy Mummy Club! Her blog, aptly called Name Dropping, lets Candace share her vast knowledge of all things baby-name related. After all, nine years of personalizing all kinds of products for new babies has taught her a thing or two about what kids are called. Go on and check it out. We know you’ll love Candace Alper too.
Are you a mompreneur? Please let us know. We’d love to feature you here.
