Thinking Outside the Sandbox
Thinking Outside the Sandbox is a website designed to help WAHMs and other business moms navigate the world of business. We think that running a business and being a mom can go hand in hand. Our mission is to help other moms in business to reach their full potential. There is no reason that you need to be alone in this endeavor! Aside from our daily posts, which range from social media tips to how to find a balance between work/home life, we also provide affordable advertising options. Advertorials are articles written about your business or product. We script the advertorials in our voice to remain consistent and write the post not as an ad but as an article, which encourages more reads. Featured Listings include photos and links and are a place where you direct your future customers to read honest, unbiased, and unsolicited feedback about your business. Basic listings are FREE.

Bundles and Buzz
The Petunia Pickle Bottom Cross Town Clutch was donated by Bundles and Buzz. This clutch is a perfect addition to any mommy lifestyle. Not only does it have enough room to carry everything you need for a night out, but it is also the perfect professional accessory to bring to those business meetings and while networking. Bundles and Buzz bundles are surprise packages of mom/baby products, supplied by companies, who are looking to increase their sales, introduce a new product, clear out discontinued products, or boost brand awareness. You can purchase mama, toddler, baby, family, and cloth diapering themed bundles.
Clarity Marketing & Design
Clarity Marketing & Design provides web, graphic, SEO (search engine optimization), and social media services to small businesses and non-profits. Based out of Surrey, British Columbia, Clarity has had well-known companies take on their services such as the Surrey School Board, BC Youth Week, City of Burnaby, and Prostate Cancer Foundation BC in the past. Attract a whole new audience with a custom logo design. Perfect for re-branding or making a great first impression with your new company.
The Vonny Market Tote was donated by Copy-Kids. Copy-Kids makes video content encouraging positive habits in young children by encouraging them to copy other kids. Our debut release is a DVD entitled Copy-Kids Eat Fruits and Vegetables. In the video, you find children joyfully eating fruits and vegetables. Kids watching it want to join in. It is that simple. And it is effective. The Vonny Market Tote is perfect for any busy mom but particularly one who also runs a business. Cai from Copy-Kids sent me this message: “These bags are so full of pockets — absolutely amazing. We use ours for knitting, but it can definitely be used to get organized.”
Copy-Kids is also on Facebook.
Kitty & Buck
Get a head start on your blog or web design with a $50 gift certificate from Kitty & Buck. Shell is a qualified Graphic Designer (B. Digital Media) with over five years of professional experience. At Kitty & Buck, we love to create something beautiful for you, whether it is a complete blog design or something smaller like a new banner or branding for your online store. Shell works as an animator and designer for television during the day and moonlights as a ballerina, musician, crazy cat lady, and chef. She dreams to one day provide beautiful designs for beautiful businesses (and the people behind them) from a secluded log cabin somewhere in the vast wilderness.
GreenGeeks is the industry’s leading green energy web hosting provider, using wind energy to put back into the grid three times the amount of energy consumed. Thinking Outside the Sandbox uses GreenGeeks as our hosting provider, and I can tell you from first hand experience that they are amazing. Originally I chose them because of their environmental practices, but their customer service is top-notch. Not to mention their support staff (who are not only awesome but also do not laugh when you call with newbie questions)! With a $30 coupon code, you are well on your way to paying for their affordable hosting plans.
Special thanks go out to all of our contributors and our intern Hannah. Please take a minute to learn about all of them here.
We also want to give a BIG thanks and shout out to Reachli for helping us promote the New Year, New You, New Business Giveaway. We use Reachli for all of our Pinterest pins. Check out our blog post about Reachli and why it is a must have for any business or blog.
