6 Mom-Owned Businesses That Will Change Your Life
All of the businesses featured below were started by moms who saw an unmet need in their respective industries. For many of them, a combination of maternal experience and business savviness helped launch a business that continues to succeed to this day.
1. Mommy Sauce

What started as a passion for cooking quickly turned into a lucrative business idea when Jai Nam Choi’s son encouraged her to share her talent with the world.
Mommy Sauce, Choi’s growing e-commerce business, offers authentic and delicious Korean sauces designed to give your food a real kick! Her signature Kimchee and Bulgogi sauces are perfect for topping some chicken stew or tofu. Many of Choi’s recipes are inspired by her experience growing up in Korea. After meeting her husband in the U.S., she also learned how to incorporate his family’s style of cooking into her own. Now, we all the chance to experiment with our own dishes using her famous Korean sauces.
2. Modi Toys

Some businesses are born out of the desire to disrupt the current market. Others are built to fulfill an unmet need. Modi Toys came to fulfill both goals after founder Avani Modi saw her brother at a loss over finding a suitable plush toy for his daughter.
At the time, there were no plush toys available that were both fun and cultural. And so, the idea for Modi Toys was born. This popular Mom-owned business features adorable plush toys designed to spark curiosity about one’s Indian roots.
3. NapiNol Nursery Therapies

In 2011, Anshal Purohit founded NapiNol Nursery Therapies after she saw the limited number of completely safe and natural products available for children with sensitive skin. As the mother of a premature baby with highly sensitive skin, Purohit knew how crucial such a product was for taking care of her son. So she set out to build NapiNol Nursery Therapies, a skincare company dedicated to building all-natural products grounded in science. From the Boo Boos Be Gone™ balm to the Beyond Balm ointment, all of NapiNol’s products are 100% natural.
