This is a sponsored conversation on behalf of the Huggies MomInspired Grant Program. All words and opinions are my own.
Have you ever been doing something and thought to yourself “this would be so much easier if only I had…”? What if that thing you wish you had didn’t exist? Does it pass from your mind, or do you start thinking about creating a product to meet that need?
If the latter sounds like you, then Huggies has a program you may find very interesting. They are currently in the 4th year of their Huggies MomInspired Grant Program which provides awards of $15,000 to up to 12 people. This money will allow the winners to further expand on that idea and work to actually produce that creative idea that will help make parents’ lives easier.
You’re not just handed a check and left to try and figure it all out on your own, either. Winners will receive business advice from Maria Bailey, author, radio and TV personality, and founder of BSMMedia.com. Additionally, Kimberly-Clark will also provide support to winners.
Intrigued? Here are the details on how to apply:
- Who – Anyone with an original, innovative and viable new product idea to help make life easier for parents; must be 21 and older and reside in the United States
- How – Log onto HuggiesMomInspired.com and submit an application, including the idea and business plan
- When – May 6, 2013, through July 31, 2013
- Why – For the chance to receive $15,000 and advice to help start or grow your business idea
Since having Bubbles, I know there have been times I’ve thought “why has no one made one of these yet?” (Not surprising as more than 84% of “mompreneurs” say their big ideas were developed after becoming a parent.) Now might be the time to stop just thinking about why it doesn’t exist and, you know, act on it. Maybe I’ll submit an application and see if my idea can become a reality.
