Alaska Mom Wins Top Honors in National Mom Business Competition
From among thousands of contestants, Penny Bauder, owner of the craft subscription service Green Kid Crafts, has been named a top finalist, ranking #67, in StartupNation.com’s 2012 Leading Moms in Business competition, sponsored by Web.com and Sam's Club.
More than 350,000 votes were cast in support of the 2012 contestants, reflecting immense interest and supportiveness for moms building businesses at the same time they tend to their families.
“It is such an honor to be recognized as a Top Finalist in the Leading Moms in Business competition,” Bauder said.
Like so many children's products, Green Kid Crafts is a mother's invention, born out of need. "I'm a busy mom, but nothing is more precious to me than spending quality time interacting with my two children," explains Bauder. "I want to spend my limited time engaging with them, not scrambling for ideas and shopping for supplies. That’s were Green Kid Crafts comes in."

“There’s been a sea change among moms as they’ve come to realize that adding entrepreneurship to their lives brings exhilaration and immense gratification, not to mention supplemental—sometimes primary—income to their families in these dicey economic times,” says Rich Sloan, co-founder of StartupNation.
The 2012 Leading Moms in Business ranking highlights some of the dominant trends, motivations and attributes among moms in business. The full results of the 2012 Leading Moms in Business ranking are available on StartupNation’s website at http://www.startupnation.com/
