As the crazy week of our Shark Tank airing approaches, I have been reflecting on how all of this came to be…It truly is something that I never thought would actually happen. Of course I hoped that I would have the opportunity to pitch to the sharks, introduce the world to Myself Belts, and hopefully have a new strategic partner. These were just wishes though, crazy pipe dreams that we all have when we fantasize about exciting wild ideas. Shark Tank Isn’t For Me…Or is it? I started watching Shark Tank a few years ago when a business consultant mentioned that... Read More
There is a lot of nervous energy around our offices preparing for this exciting news! Tune in to see what happens when Talia faces the Sharks on Halloween!
I’ve been reminded in recent weeks, how much fun family game days/nights can be. When as a family, we can all unplug, gather, and spend some quality time enjoying each other’s company- it is such special time. Amidst the hectic days of driving in circles and racing from here to there, times when we get to stop and just “be” are so welcome. I am also realizing how fleeting they are and how we need to make time to have these memories. I have been reflecting on how our games have changed over the years as the kids have gotten older....

Summer is officially here! As parents we often have mixed emotions about summer. Love being more carefree and less scheduled, but also sometimes challenging to create the structure that our children need! I think there is an adjustment period for parents of school age children as we ease into the new routine, camp schedule, or no schedule at all. We have had 2 weeks of summer in our house so far and are getting into a bit of a rhythm. The library is our new favorite place and my kids have loved pouring themselves into some new books. I...

Reading together is always a favorite time at our house. Some of the best bonding that I have with my kids is reading aloud to them at bedtime. Of course we all read to our kids when they are little, but there is something so special about enjoying longer books together as they get older. These books sometimes take weeks to read. Some of the timeless choices that we have read are Tumtum and Nutmeg for younger kids, the Hank Zipzer series for kids 1st-3rd grade, The Secret Garden for kids 3rd and 4th grade, and Harry Potter for older kids. I am... Read More
