A safe, easy, toxin-free way to serve and store our daughter’s edibles. This was the simple idea that spawned an ambitious undertaking. As parents, we were frustrated by the abundance of plastic and other toxic food systems. Out of this frustration, the quest for a safe alternative began. And, Kinderville™ was born.
If you can run a marathon you understand owning a business.
A few years ago I was responsible for a team of sales people to help them grow
their businesses and I went to a training to better my ability with developing
a strong sales force. There the leader of the class said, “If you can run a
marathon you understand what it is like to be in sales.” Well prior to that
position I had never done sales nor had I run a marathon so I took her advice
literally and now 5 years later I recently completed my 5th marathon.

Babies are messy! New mom Johanna Romaniuk realized just how messy, when her 5-month-old daughter was determined to feed herself; afterwards, the floor was a spillabration! Out of necessity, Johanna made a high chair food catcher that was lightweight, compact and durable. She made it easy to attach, detach, clean and store on the high chair. The high chair food catcher was the beginning of Wupzey, a company dedicated to making products that make life with baby less messy. Wupzey now has a full line of products including car seat covers, high chair covers, bibs, coveralls, floor mats, shopping cart covers and diner covers.
Paula Roeske considered herself a very organized person when she had her first child. She went so far as stack all of his baby food jars by type in her pantry. She did not realize how easily these jars could topple and fall until her 6-month-old son began standing and holding on to her leg. She soon learned the dangers, when one of the glass jars fell and landed on his toe, breaking it. She was so upset, that when she got home with him from the hospital, she searched for baby food organizers and found nothing available. The need for a safe baby food organizer led to the creation of PRK Products, Inc. and the Universal Baby Food Jar Storage & Organizer.

Most companies would be hard-put to identify the current economic season as a boom-time. However, there have been some bright spots in the current economy, largely thanks to small and medium sized businesses. It’s all about who you know and how you get your message out there, which is a long-standing reason that so many independent manufacturers foster relationships with experienced sales representative associations.Three sales rep firms that are thriving, Carolina Baby, The Coffs, and Annette & Associates, demonstrate how they help other companies flourish.
