E – Education
So, part of Elegant Mommy’s vision is to bring EducatedMommy to life. Great news – we are just about there!! In the very near future you will be hearing the official “we’re up and running” announcement – woot! No, I don’t know exactly when it will be, but I know for sure that it will be soon J.
So, as far as education, it’s almost difficult to figure out where to even start. I mean, education is something that has made Elegant Mommy special from the beginning! I had the pleasure to spend a good chunk of yesterday at the store in Sioux Falls with Shelly. Since I live in Mitchell, I don’t get to see her or other employees or friends of Elegant Mommy very often, so it was so much fun to see the actual brick-n-mortar store part of what Elegant Mommy is. Yes, I have shopped there many times, but I have never spent the time that I did yesterday just observing and being a part of it. At one point there was a phone call and Shelly took the time to fully explain a product and what the benefits of it are to whoever was on the other end. She really knew what she was talking about, and the way she helped that customer understand was fantastic. It really struck me that *that* was what Elegant Mommy and Educated Mommy is all about. Helping people. Educating them. Not just offering products that can help them, but taking the time to help educate on the benefits of those products and helping determine if they are right for the customer…because as we all know this is not a one-size-fits-all world. Some products work for some and not for others. Because of care for our customers, supporters, readers, and followers, we (the Elegant Mommy team) are dedicated to helping educate in whatever way we can!
F – Families, Friends, and Followers
As I mentioned above, we here at Elegant Mommy are dedicated to our families, friends, and followers. One of the great things about working for Shelly is that she is “all about” families. She is a young mama herself, and knows the importance many moms see in staying home with their kids or at least being with them as much as possible. She allows all of her employees to bring their kids to work with them every. day. Not only that, but she provides a place in the store for the kids to hang out with toys, a TV with kid-friendly DVD’s, and an atmosphere that promotes creative play for the kiddos. Personally, I am overwhelmingly blessed to be able to do what I do for Elegant Mommy from my home…I live over an hour away from the Sioux Falls store!
As for Friends and Followers, Elegant Mommy does *so* much! From the Friday night comment game (don’t miss it tonight!) to giveaways on the blog and the weekly deals and featured products, there is something for everyone, and we always take care of our friends (after all, you are all friends J).
G – Games
Ok, so, we LOVE games here at Elegant Mommy! First of all, we love promoting the value and importance of playing with your kids, but also, we love to come up with fun and exciting ways to give you (our friends, family, and followers) some grown-up fun, too! So, we do giveaways, play games on our blog, and perhaps most notably, play a very consistently fun and entertaining game every Friday night where *everyone* wins! Just by participating, you have the chance to get some wonderful and great items from our store for greatly discounted prices!
