More and more women and moms are making the leap to pursuing their life’s passions. And we want you to know that in this regard again, you are not alone!!!

“It’s so important to go for what you want in life.” ~ Kim Gellman

Stand on the shoulders of other successful mom entrepreneurs that have faced the same challenges and are here on My Mommy Manual to share their successes and inspiration with you. The first in this series is a dear friend and partner, Kim Gellman, owner of

As has often happened in the course of co-creating My Mommy Manual we connected with Kim, another St. Louis mom business owner, who is doing what she loves! We became fast friends and continually find ways to help each other in our personal and professional lives. Her company is an online retailer for kids and teens bedding, furniture and decor. We can provide her parents with helpful tips and she can provide ours with really cool products! Is that a Dream Connection or what?!

In this VIDEO (1:58), hear Kim’s advice for moms who want to start their own business. And, get a sneak peak at the her own teen rooms, tastefully decorated with Artistic Sensation products! Yup, she has a sports guy! 🙂

  1. Zen Mommy says:

    it IS so important to GO FOR IT!! to know that we create our lives… that it takes equal parts of acceptance and motivation to make things happen. a great message to send to our kids whether we work outside the home or not, letting them know they have what it takes to follow their bliss. that we CAN move mountains in this life.

    i feel so blessed to be a working mom with friends like you kim, and ria to turn to for tips, support and guidance.
