Home-Based Working Moms Celebrate National Home Business Month in August

CONTACT: Elaine Krackau, PR by the Book | Elaine@prbythebook.com | 512.733.5145

WHAT: August is National Home Business Month, designed to recognize the millions of American entrepreneurs running businesses from their homes. According to a recent SBA report, 53% of current U.S. businesses are home-based, 3.5 million of which are owned by women. Many of these woman-owned businesses were originated by mothers exiting corporate America to spend more time at home with their families, but still contribute to the household income.

HBWM.com, Inc, (Home-Based Working Moms™), is a professional association and online community designed to support these women. Started in 1995 by Lesley Spencer Pyle, it provides its members with networking, free advertising options, a monthly newsletter, organizing tool kit, email discussion list, searchable member directory and corporate discounts on various products and services.

WHO: Donna Bliss is a local home-based working mom and member of HBWM.com who began MyMiracleBaby.com, Inc. (www.mymiraclebaby.com) from her NYC-area home in 2001, starting with 50 basic baby products. It has now grown into a baby super store of 2,300 items shipping worldwide to more than 20,000 customers a year. Bliss says she aligned with HBWM because it is the most comprehensive, professional organization and online community for home based businesses.

WHERE: Bliss is currently available by phone or in person, upon arrangement.
