I skipped last weeks #MOBCRUSHMONDAY because I was in Hawaii! :) I decided to do some important self care and take a few things off my plate. This weeks #MOBCRUSHMONDAY is all about powerhouses who built huge brands and huge followings. I am so impressed by these women and their drive! *Reminder*- do not make fun of typos, these are a fun little post I make each week to highlight MOBS I love- they are not perfect- but they are heartfelt. [Just like me].
Hearing Liz's story was such an incredible experience! Sseko was founded to offer a way for young women in Uganda to attend University, they began with one simple product- the ribbon sandal. They expanded to other offerings like handbags, scarves, and accessories. In addition to their original mission, they have gone on to employ women in East Africa to end the cycle of poverty and create a more sustainable economy. Sseko also offers a direct sales model so others may have the opportunity to have their own small businesses, and get involved on a global level. Every Fellow is paired one-to-one with a woman in Uganda, how amazing is that?
Liz is my forever #MOBCRUSH because of all she is doing to empower women. Her down to earth personality is also pretty high on the list too! She is so funny, and her Instagram is full of vulnerable insights, and behind the scenes moments. I hope to have her join us at next years #MOBCON as a speaker!
If you are interested in joining Sseko, I definitely recommend joining Cassie's team! She is awesome leader. You can check out her store and learn more about the opportunity here.
Monica does a great job of building her brand and hustling, I see her shirts everywhere and worn on some of the top mom bloggers. I am so impressed with her drive, and of course, obsessed with her designs.
My last two crushes on this weeks list are two genius mama focused brands. Every single MOB needs to have these products in their [hopefully Sseko] handbag.
I got to test out Mommy Wipes- and let me tell you they are the real deal. I packed them in my suitcase for traveling, added a few to my glove box, put one in my purse!
I used one to clean up coffee- because #MOMLIFE and it worked like a dream. I was shocked that even though it was strong enough to clean up coffee, it was still gentle enough to use as a makeup remover wipe, AND to clean up my baby nephews face after a meal!
You owe it to yourself to buy some, these are a MAMA MUST HAVE! [The first to make my new Amazon list- "Aria's Picks"].
As busy MOB's we need a clean, sustainable energy source to get us through the day. We also need easy access to superfoods to keep our bodies going! That is where Supermama comes in. They have an energy line, lactation line, even a "Chillax line" which I hear is a "Xanax" in a tea bag- sign me up!
In addition to having a killer product, I again am crushing hard on the branding. TOP NOTCH packaging, intentional social media presence, awesome website, and focused brand. LOVE IT.
Buy it today and let us know below what your favorite brand is!
