Who are mom inventors? They're people who turned their homemade solutions to everyday problems into incredibly successful products everyone wants, including Baby Einstein™, The Snack Trap™, and the Toss and Chop™.

  • Create prototypes and watch your vision come to life
  • Safeguard your products, including patent information
  • Identify funding for your business
  • Locate reliable distributors and manufacturing sources
  • Market and publicize your product for free
  • Learn from the success stories of other mom inventors

Moms are natural problem solvers. Chances are you've already had the brainstorm or come up with the gizmo that everyone could use. Make it the next big thing with The Mom Inventors Handbook.

    A MUST have for any inventor!

    This is hands down the BEST book on taking an idea from conception to market. Tamara spells out each step in easy to read, clear, and entertaining language that demystifies the whole process. She makes the daunting doable. For the first time there is a roadmap for inventors- mothers especially- on how to make your dream a reality. Chalked full of her expert advice from small business loans, to how to get a prototype and source manufacturers, to how to land your product on TV and in magazines¿. This book has it all! Tamara¿s unassuming manner and ability to share with her readers some of her more embarrassing ¿mommy¿ moments lifts the veil on how mothers across the country are creating successful small empires from their home office. This book can change your life if you are ready to jump into the world of entrepreneurs!
