The article below tells of a work at home mom’s journey from an inventor to mompreneur, author and mommy expert. Her story is inspiring and a beacon for us fellow mommy dreamers who want to make it to center stage or should I say to New York’s Best Sellers List. Read on and be inspired as I introduce Ann Tillage, a mom who has now realized her dream of being an author.
Ann’s first invention was at eight years old. Even though her idea of a visor/purse combination never came to fruition, it set in motion her creative thinking and the love of sharing her ideas and experiences with others. As she continues to grow as a "mommy expert", wife, sister/friend, business inventor and now author; Ann can only hope to inspire other women to pursue their dreams and become a "Mommy Executive". Nothing is impossible! She is also the co-founder of a women's business networking group in Baton Rouge.
The Sharmooz Company came to fruition with the passion of coming up with the solution for unsightly bald spots on infants. This is a common occurrence with most babies. When her son, Kameron was four weeks old, he started to develop the “bald” spot from the constant rubbing and chaffing against the harsh fabrics in his surroundings, i.e. bouncy seat, swing. Ann reacted quickly because time was fleeting and Kameron’s hair was fading fast. Ann has always used satin pillowcases to protect her hair and styles; then why not try this for babies as well, and therefore the Sharmooz was born. Ann came from a family background of professional seamstress. Ann began sewing at 8 years old. With her sewing, sales & business background, she was able to develop and design the Baby Sharmooz Satin Headrest. With its unique patented design, it allows the baby's head to glide over the headrest, minimizing breakage of the baby's delicate hair while staying in place due to the non-slip backing.
Ann Tillage is the owner, inventor, and "mommy expert" of the multifaceted Sharmooz Company. The company currently has eight different products, two patents pending, and is now in several retailers and growing rapidly. She has researched and implemented her business and sales strategies into simple and clear steps to assist with conquering the first year of parenting. Don’t Rock That Baby! The Other Advice: 46 steps to survive the first year of motherhood. Her inspiration of creating and writing a companion book for new moms was derived from experiences of feeling overwhelmed and a need for quick tips with a little sense of humor and care. The book has resources throughout to help if more in-depth information is desired. Don’t Rock That Baby! can be purchased at Amazon, www.sharmooz.com and www.dontrockthatbaby.com.
What does Ann have to say about her success and how she feels: “I love being a Mom. The experience has inspired me to pursue my dreams as an Entrepreneur and an Author.
