My featured WAHM series is just one of the ways I try to support work-at-home-moms, offering them the space to share about themselves and their business, while I promote them through social media. I’ve been there; trying to run a small business, while managing children and home, and it’s difficult! I’m thankful that my freelance writing and marketing business is a small endeavor, and (usually) able to be tackled during my son’s naps and bedtimes. But what about those WAHMs with big business ideas, a limited network and few connections? If this is you, SandCrate.com may be the perfect answer to your business-building endeavor.
Suppose I have a business idea, but need some help getting my idea to translate into business; I would add my idea to SandCrate.com, being as specific as I feel comfortable, from business plan to specific goals. Once my idea is listed, other users are able to interact with me, providing feedback and, ideally, joining my team. One of the concepts I really like about SandCrate is that it is a community full of like-minded individuals with a desire to network and support each other; while I may not find an exact match for my needs on SandCrate, the odds are great that another member knows someone who is a good fit.
If you have a business idea, but need help getting that idea to come to fruition, SandCrate is the perfect networking tool for you. Think social networking for the creative sector; SandCrate allows you to post your idea and connect with potential partners. Are you an idea person, but lack the skill set to market your idea? Is your business already launched, but in need of funding and/ or exposure? SandCrate can connect you with professionals who share your vision and possess the skills to balance your business.
If you don’t have a business idea of your own, but love the idea of participating in a start-up, SandCrate is the place for you to be! Browse other’s business ideas, offer feedback, and see if your skill set is a match for a project.
SandCrate offers both paid and free membership options, accommodating entrepreneurs at all stages in their business development. Not ready to jump in? You can spend time browsing the many helpful business-related articles on SandCrate.com.
There is a little of everything on SandCrate.com, and here are a few ideas that caught my interest:
Mama Kits: a non-profit organization providing birthing bags to pregnant women in Uganda
Nextdoorganics: a locally sourced, sustainable, community-based grocery, with an emphasis on seed to table education and service. Think co-op meets farmer’s market!
The Human Project: a sci-fi/ dystopian graphic novel project, with sights set on film adaptation.
