Tell us about your business and how you began:
Through an amazing serendipitous turn of events, I bought the patent for the product now known as Wikki Stix, in 1990. My background is all in sales and marketing and when I stumbled across the invention, I could see all kinds of applications for it…. just given the proper marketing impetus. So I dug in and started reaching out to the world in 1990 to demonstrate how Wikki Stix could benefit … teachers, moms, grandparents, restaurants and airlines, parents and therapists working with inividuals with special needs…..and primarily, KIDS!
What advice do you offer other work at home parents?
Well, I’ve never worked from home, so I don’t have experience in that arena. I can imagine, though, that there could be a lot of distractions, from children to feeling torn between getting the last bit of work done…. and doing some much-needed laundry. It would seem that being able to really focus would be critical.
Where/how do you currently market and promote?
We do lots and lots of trade shows, where we can actually show and demonstrate how Wikki Stix work, and how they are useful in a particular application. We also do selective advertising.

With the holidays coming up, I would like to give away our Rainy Day Play Kit, which was just designated by Dr.Toy as one of the 100 Best Products for Children in 2010… and one of the TEN Most Creative.
