Best Ever You

StartupNation.com Honors Nation's Leading Moms in Business - Falmouth, Maine's Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino, Founder CEO of Best Ever YOU Wins Top Honors in Mom Business Competition

Falmouth, Maine - October 11, 2010- From among thousands of contestants, Best Ever YOU, LLC has been ranked 110th in StartupNation.com's 2010 Leading Moms in Business competition (www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-in-business), sponsored by Infusionsoft (www.infusionsoft.com). 

Over 709,000 votes were cast in support of the 2010 contestants, reflecting immense interest and supportiveness for moms building businesses at the same time they tend to their families.

"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, chief startupologist and co-founder of StartupNation.

Elizabeth Hamilton-Guarino, Founder and CEO says, "We are very honored to be recognized as one of the top mom-owned businesses in the country. We started as a very small company in our neighborhood in Falmouth and are now being viewed across the globe on the web, Blog Talk Radio, TV and our printed magazine. "

She adds, "It is quite a challenge to start-up and successfully run a company and then top that off with having a husband and four boys under the ages 9-11-13 and 15 all who play sports and are active in their schools.  It is like having a few of the best full-time jobs EVER all at once, she laughs! We thank YOU for being the YOU in Best Ever You." The winner's profile for Best Ever YOU, LLC can be found at http://www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-in-business/contestant/8087/index.php



The 2010 Leading Moms in Business ranking, conducted in collaboration with Ladies Who Launch (www.ladieswholaunch.com) and The National Association for Moms in Business (www.mibn.org), highlights some of the dominant trends, motivations and attributes among moms in business. They include:

  • A great eye for providing attractive discounts, coupons, savings and value, all especially important to consumer moms of the recession era.
  • A likelihood to come up with innovative products and solutions to address the challenging maze of motherhood. It's an environment that demands resourcefulness.
  • Conscience-driven business, where "doing well" is just fine, but the real rush comes from doing good.
  • The attraction of being your own boss looms large for moms wanting to take control they just can't find in a day job.
  • Sustainable solutions and responsible business practices are increasingly paramount.
  • Making the most of social media for business benefit is seemingly a birthright for the socially adept moms.
