Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Why did you choose (Your above answer) as your customers?
Paper & Party Co.:Based on conversations I have with my customers before a purchase. They are always so excited about their special event and vision and I try and make that come to life for them through my designs.
Moms, Minivans, & MessesAre you a mom? If so, did Paper and Parties Co. have anything to do with initiating the business?

Paper & Party Co.:I am a mom. I have an amazing, supportive husband and a one year old daughter named Lily. I have always been an entrepreneur. I owned a restaurant at 24 and knowing that I wanted to get married and start a family I left that venture and went to work a 9-5. I realized pretty quickly that that wasn’t for me and dabbled in a few other businesses before this one stuck. It marries my passion for DIY, creating and business perfectly…and who doesn’t love a party?

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Can you tell me how Paper and Parties Co. will keep moms feeling GLAM?

I suggest people focus on the part they love doing, maybe that’s the baking or the photography or styling a fabulous party and hire out some of the other things. It is much less stressful and there is more time to enjoy your event. (Maybe you’ll even have time to put on some mascara and brush your hair before the guests arrive😂)

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What is the name of your business and who are your potential customers?

KEEP: I am a Founding Director with social selling company KEEP Collective (from the believers who brought us Stella & Dot,) and my potential customers are storytellers. Each keepsake “Keeper” design is a wearable touchstone, an instant reminder of the big things, the small things, and all things that matter.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Why did you choose (Your above answer) as your customers?

KEEP: KEEP Collective shares a deep belief that living a happy life comes from always keeping in mind what truly matters. Love, faith, friendship, family, hope, and adventure. So we are storytellers- helping others reflect on and share the moments and milestones that make up their one-of-a-kind life. 

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Are you a mom? If so, did this business have anything to do with initiating KEEP? 

KEEP: I am not currently a mom, however, I did choose this social selling brand with the idea that I will start a family in the future and the truly flexible entrepreneurship that this company provides is just what I’ll need to spend quality time with my children whenever and wherever I want to.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What do you expect to be the outcome of “KEEP”? 

KEEP: The outcome of KEEP is that I will continue to live the happiest life possible while focusing on all of the things that matter in my life as well as leading other women to finding what truly makes them happy as well! Designing my life makes me happy, so that I can make the people I love happy. It is my best gift to the world. It is with joy and love that as a KEEP Designer I fulfill my mission to give every woman the means to design her one-of-a -kind life.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Where can I find information about “KEEP”?

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Who is “KEEP”? (One mom, multiple moms, etc.)

KEEP: KEEP Collective is a team of dreamers, doers, daughters, wives, and mothers. We are renovating the home-based business model for our times. We are a billion-dollar global brand in the making. We invest our hearts, our smarts, and our unbending will to make it happen. We are our only competition. The way it’s always been done is never flattering on us. We create. We reinvent. We learn. We get more creative. We do it better next time. We make no excuses. We find a way.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Can you tell me how KEEP will keep moms feeling GLAM?

KEEP: We get great joy out of designing irresistible keepsakes. And yet, there is something much greater we are creating. We have a vision of the world where strong women live bold and joyful lives. They know what they want and they work for it. They inspire each other. Passion and joy are their best accessories.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: A portion of the KEEP Collective Manifesto:

KEEP: We know that success is not predetermined for the exclusive few.  Success is nothing more than getting up every single morning, and getting to work, writing our own stories. And we make no apologies about benefiting from the success we work hard and smart to create. We are here to make a living. And a solid one at that. Our income gives us peace of mind, pays the bills, buys take-out when we’re busy, puts our kids through college, and gives opportunity to many other women along the way. We’re proud of that. We love writing our own stories. We hold the pen.

Toddler Car Gear by Catchie Concepts

As I was driving home this evening I looked in the back of our minivan and was disappointed by the mess that didn’t have to be in the back seats. Hoping that a mom would invent and come up with something that could alleviate huge messes, especially in my minivan, would make my life, and the life of other mother’s, ten times easier.

I stumbled on an Instagram “like” from catchie_concepts on my picture:

I researched the California based  company and profile and later thought to myself that had I known about this company sooner, it probably could have alleviated many of these messes in my minivan and saved a lot of trips to the car wash!

Does your vehicle look like this sometimes? Messy with kids, shampooing and vacuuming the heck out of your vehicle constantly because your kids continue to have no respect for the things you’re paying for at times?!

Luckily, I will be ordering my first Catchie as soon as I clean my car and it’s like new again(Which will be sometime this weekend). All readers will be able to have a special discount through this blog post so please share so that you can join in on the savings!! (Thank you, Catchie Concepts!)

Below is the interview of Catchie Concepts:

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What is the name of your business and who are your potential customers?

Catchie Concepts: Catchie Concepts; Customers vary from parents to be, parents of multiples, grandparents and caretakers.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Why did you choose (Your above answer) as your clients?

Catchie Concepts:When the Catchie was first invented we reached out to all types of people to see what their thoughts and input are on our product. It was fun to see how grandparents reacted …they can’t always bend and find the bottle that was dropped. Caretakers (Nannies or relatives watching your kiddo) enjoyed it because they wanted to make sure the kids didn’t destroy their personal car. New parents were aware from others how messy kids can be and parents of multiple kiddos have gone through driving with toddlers before and enjoyed the product greatly.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Are you a mom? If so, did this business have anything to do with initiating Catchie Concepts?

Catchie Concepts: I am a mom of 3 kids aged 13, 9, and 4! The youngest one was the reason the Catchie was invented…I already knew how messy they could get and just had bought a new car and drove a company car at the time. I didn’t feel like having it taken over by the little guy and wanted to make sure that on longer drives we were not all searching for his pacifier, bottle etc.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What do you expect to be the outcome of “Catchie Concepts”?

Catchie Concepts: We are working with a leading company that was started by another mom and was on shark tank! She is great and pretty soon we will be able to let our customers know our newest plans for 2016.

We are now on large online retailers and with local boutiques as well…we look forward to expanding this year and continuing to grow.

Catchie Concepts: Growing, we are always thinking of how to make things easier for moms…so keep an eye on us!

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Moms, like myself, struggle with cleanliness and their vehicles. How can your product save me from visiting the car wash every week?

Catchie Concepts: When your toddler is about to eat  a snack, or drop that sippy cup, toy etc. The Catchie is waterproof and will keep all the messes on the net like feature making it easy to just wipe up or sweep into a trash bag  no need to pay money or spend morning cleaning out the back of the car anymore.
