What’s a WAHM? Plus The Best WAHM Shops featured for WAHM week 2017!
What’s a WAHM? A WAHM is a work at home Mom. For someone like me, who blogs about cloth diapers, a WAHM is someone who designs, sews, sells and mails out cloth diapers! In addition to diapers, many WAHM shops also make handmade clothing and other reusable items like toilet un-paper! I wanted to feature amazing WAHM shops I know and have worked with in this event.
What’s so special about a WAHM? Unlike a big company that has a sewing factory, a public relations person, a shipping department and even someone to answer e-mails, a WAHM does this all on her own! While some may have a bit of help here and there, a few hours of virtual assistance or a partner who packs up and ships envelopes, WAHMs are small business machines. Take a look at these excellent shops below:
If I knew then what I know now…I would have started off cloth diapering with more WAHM diapers. In addition to diapers, many WAHM shops make clothing and other items. Work at home Moms are quite literally business machines. They design their product, make it, run social media, storefront, sell and ship items. Amazing, right? I
I’d like to point you in the direction of some wonderful WAHM shops. Here are some wonderful shops below and some items they lovingly and expertly hand-make:
