Welcome to the PAJAMA PARTY!!!

On Tuesday, April 14 at 8pm CST we shared practical and inspired tips, amazing prizes, and great girl bonding time! In case you missed it and have a spare three hours, check it out below! Our theme was Women Entrepreneurs and special guests Guy Kawasaki, Lewis Howes and Elena Verlee shared their tips on entrepreneurship, networking and PR.

Was this type of content helpful and valuable to you? We would love your feedback! We are constantly striving to over-deliver so please leave a comment below if you want to see more programming like this from My Mommy Manual.


Note that that the company name will show up as Basa Body LLC. This widget will be active through April.

1) Make a $12 donation with the 12 for 12k ChipIn widget for Yehu.org

2) For EVERY $12 donation you make to the Pajama Party Raffle, you will receive one entry in the raffle. Think of it as $12/ticket. If you donate $120, you get 10 tickets. You can specify the item(s) you want those tickets to go towards by putting the item’s raffle number in the box labeled “Send Comments to the organizer,” which appears AFTER you’ve completed the payment process.

• For a $12 donation that I wanted to go towards Creativille’s banner ad, I would enter “4” in the special instructions box.

• For a $36 donation, I could enter: “3,4,5” (if I wanted 1 ticket each for the Platinum Pass, the Web Banner Ad, and Myself Belts)

• Or, if I wanted all 3 tickets to go towards Myself Belts, I would enter “3,3,3” in the special instructions box.

We’ll be using random.org to pick the winners. Redemption codes will be sent email so when you get the confirmation message from aWeber from Practical Mommy, please open it and follow the instructions, k?
