Britt Menziescreated StinkyKids after her daughter requested she paint her as a ballerina. And before she knew it, Britt's small brand was being made into a musical that won the 2012 Best Family Show award by the Off Broadway Alliance. The term "SkinkyKids" comes from “little stinkers,” which Britt used to describe the innocent behavior of her two kids when they were little. The brand now helps teach life lessons through books and other products featuring 10 unique StinkyKids characters.
Britt has exactly what it takes to be a mompreneur and she's using her brand to teach kids to "always be a leader of good." October is anti-bullying month, so Britt will be working with retailers and other organizations to help in the fight against bullying.
When it comes to being a mompreneur, here is Britt's StinkyKids Top Ten List:
Network, build relationships
Never assume no
Become a mentor
Focus on earned PR and social media
Make a list of friends/family and their professions
Creative financial funding
Give away samples of your products
Partner with a charity
Keep it simple
Be your own brand
