Seattle, WA, May 19, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- From among contestants across the United States, SeniorResourceCentral.com has been named a winner of StartupNation.com’s 2011 Leading Moms in Business competition (www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-in-business).
“With startup rates at an all-time high, these leading moms are leading the pack in startup rates,” says Rich Sloan, chief startupologist and co-founder of StartupNation. “They’re going after their business opportunities and developing their innovative products and services with fervor,” Sloan adds.
Founder April Fan - Mother of two boys and Regional Dietitian specializing in senior care - first got the idea for creating Senior Resource Central after watching many of her senior patient’s children stress and struggle over what’s best for their parents. When it came time to help her own ailing parents transition into retirement; she found herself struggling to find good information too—even as a senior care provider. So, she pooled all her resources and experience to create Senior Resource Central.
“As a glorious mother entrepreneur I'm totally ecstatic to showcase this website!” says Fan. The winner’s profile for SeniorResourceCentral.com can be found at http://www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-in business/contestant/10182/index.php.
The 2011 Leading Moms in Business ranking 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.
