As a mom after Columbine I want to find a way to keep our schools safe and began designing a line of clear bags and backpacks. As business owners we know timing in the market places everything so I was actually about 10 years too soon. In 2015 Safety Bags relaunched and in looking at the market place both professional and college sports require anything larger than the palm of your hand be clear which that was what led to the launch of stadiumbags.com in 2016.
We won The Family Choice Award for products 2016, 17, 18 and 19 with a perfect score of 110 out of 110 from all 12 judges. Our stadium bags have been seen in publications from USA Today and the World Series program, to the Super Bowl program, and we’ll be in Yankee magazine and the Yankees year book, too.
Our mission has always been keeping our school safe, but I knew as far as marketing goes I had to look at what the market would bear. I also knew that if we shined the spotlight on our stadium bags bright enough that it would finally eliminate safety bags and our niche and to keep our schools safe. This year that is my goal, all the shows that I am doing our school safety related.
In 2017 we won the Fiverr and NY Yankees Game Changer Contest and our new logo launched at Yankee stadium. We’ve been named to the Strathmore’s Who’s Who Worldwide for their 2018-2019 edition.
At this point I feel that our stadium bags are on the map and doing their thing and now it’s time to shift that spotlight to what’s really important, our schools and the safety of our children. The other side of my mission is empowering women which has led to not only Word of Mom Radio but the development of the Word of Mom Media Network which will include our TV show that launches in March. The reality is together we can make a difference! If you win, I win, we all win. So never give up…the journey takes as long as it takes trust it!
