Nancy Gutierrez of Pink Axle shows off some of their products on display at ENK Children’s Club in New York.

In Play Showroom, located at The California Market Center in downtown L.A., has earned a quality reputation as an experienced, trend-setting rep room. The spirited team at In Play enjoys plenty of laughter and good-natured fun, but is definitely there to “work it!” Owner Sandra Martinez shares all the praise and success with her team of hard-working sales reps. We recently met up with Sandra to discuss what makes her work like play, and most importantly, how she plays to win for herself, her associates and the manufacturers she represents with unsurpassed style.

We have all experienced firsthand that “fashion is fickle.” However, unlike most fleeting fads and trends, Victorian style has influenced fashion design for centuries, as the classic lines and exquisite details never grow old. Powell Craft emulates the style of the Victorian Era and provides a “time machine” in which retailers can import goods reminiscent of a bygone age of English cottages in the rose-scented countryside. Offering timeless elegance and beauty, Powell Craft’s Old World designs are here to stay!

“Making something from nothing” used to be just an expression that described someone’s creativity and ingenuity. In today’s age of environmental concerns and attention on “going green,” some businesses now literally make something from nothing, turning what most would consider trash into treasures. By reusing and re-purposing as much as possible, Shains, TerraCycle and Ecoist are a few companies that are turning the message of “tread lightly, use less and leave less” into innovative eco-business enterprises!

Over the past few years, Lori Riley, has taken her brand, Shoe Money, from a cottage industry working on a shoestring budget, to a shoe-in as one of the most “ahh”-inspiring collections of infant and children’s apparel and accessories on the market! Lori named her company “Shoe Money” after the ‘50’s housewives’ dollar-stretching expression, which referred to tucking away a few dollars to buy “I-want” items. In Lori’s case, she literally loved to buy shoes! When Lori left her teaching career to focus on being a mom, she quickly realized that she would need to get creative to make ends meet. Here, Lori shares her Behind The Brand tale of the trials and triumphs that gave her more than pocket change to keep herself well-heeled.

Jay Cohen of Puzzled Inc. shows off some signature wooden 3D puzzles, glow-in-the-dark puzzles, and other unique offerings for 2010.

I remember when I was working in my corporate job having to take a personal day here and there to take care of “life stuff”. It was no big deal. I alerted my manager, made out my list of to-do’s and off I went. Mission accomplished.

Fast forward to mompreneurship. I still have the same, if not more, life stuff. I still have my list of to-do’s. I even alerted myself that I need to take a day off to complete these tasks by marking them on my calendar. Yet they either remain undone or, worse, I spend the day feeling guilty that I’m not “at work”.
