For Immediate Release
CUSHIE PUSHIE COMPANY NAMED
ONE OF TOP 200 LEADING MOMS IN BUSINESS
The Cushie Pushie Company announced today that it has been recognized as one of the top 200 mom-owned businesses in StartupNation’s 2009 Leading Moms In Business Competition (http://www.startupnation.com/leading-moms-2009). The competition, sponsored by VerticalResponse, recognizes the achievements of mothers across the country who run outstanding businesses.
Lois Whittaker, owner of the Cushie Pushie Company, is one mother who realizes how important it is for mothers to help support each other. To this effort, she has invented the Cushie Pushie Breast Support Pillow for Nursing Moms. The breastfeeding pillow was designed to help support a woman’s breast for easier breastfeeding.
"Moms across America were honored in this year’s ranking, showing that they’re capable of starting and running successful businesses while managing to balance family, career, home and self," said Rich Sloan, co-founder of StartupNation. "Well over 600,000 votes were cast in support of several thousand contestants. What an incredible achievement to be named a winner, and what an inspiration for anyone looking to start their own business.”
“Honors like this one reinforce to me why what we do is so important to our economy, other mothers, their babies, our families, and ourselves,” states Lois. “I am proud to be recognized with such accomplished, intelligent, incredible women who undertook not only the difficult, yet rewarding job of mother, but then took on the equally demanding job of running their own businesses.”
StartupNation (http://www.startupnation.com/) launched the first annual Leading Moms in Business Competition in January with the support of VerticalResponse (http://www.verticalresponse.com/) to recognize the achievements of mom entrepreneurs across the US. Winners were selected and ranked according to public votes accumulated from January through March, 2009. The elite 200 win bragging rights, promotional support, and digital winner’s emblems recognizing their achievements as the Leading Moms in Business.
