The free LIVE webinar yesterday was awesome! In the first half we talked about market research (it's not difficult if you know how to find the answers), funding (I shared the name of the micro-lender that loaned me $25,000 early in my business), realistic (not pie in the sky) sales planning, and how to use marketing tools to "blow your horn" about your business! But... the best part were the questions from participants that I think you'll benefit from the most.
“The LIVE chat was great! Very informative, succinct, like the bullet point highlights of key, most important information.” – Carrie U.

Watch VIDEO: Learn How to Set Your Product Pricing so that There is Enough Profit Left Over For You!
Complimentary 12-minute video tutorial to help you set the "right" retail price for your product from the start.
There are key questions that you need to ask yourself when bringing a product to market:
“How do I set the wholesale price of my product?”
“How do I price my item for a retailer?
“How do I price my item if I add a distributor?”
And, after everyone gets a piece of the pie, “Will consumers buy your item at the price point you’ve selected?”
These are good questions! In fact, these questions may be the most important questions you can ask because the last thing you want is for everyone else to make money from your product except for you. That is a surefire way to go out of business. And, it is completely preventable if you know what to do!
Don't panic when you see the spreadsheet!
This is for not-so-math-savvy entrepreneurs (like me) which is why I love it. Once you plug in your numbers, it calculates the retail price for you. This is the actual tool I've been using for years to establish product pricing. I hope this video tutorial serves you well. Let me know what you think.
You certainly can create your own spreadsheet. However, if you want this Margin Calculator, you are welcome to purchase it HERE.
If you like what you've learned here, this barely scratches the surface of what you'll get from the LIVE Power Mentoring II Program (begins on June 2nd). Learn more about the program HERE.
Are you TOO BUSY to take the live classes but you still want to benefit from the information and step-by-step guidance? The great news is that you can. And, the Self-Paced Power Mentoring II Program is a FRACTION of the cost. I've recorded ALL of the classes and posted them in a private members area so that you can listen at any time that works best for you 24/7. Learn more HERE.
You can do this! Journey On,
What surprises me the most is that it only takes one small shift to dramatically transform the direction of our lives so that we have more wealth, health and happiness as they are all inter-connected.
What's even more interesting is how long we are willing to stay stuck -- sometimes for years. Have you ever experienced this? Have you ever made a shift and then said to yourself "Why didn't I do this five years ago?" I know I have. Sometimes, I've held on so hard to something that wasn't working with the false hope that the outcome would be different if I just kept on trying.
My 10-year-old daughter recently wrote a report for her 4th grade class about Amelia Earhart, The first woman pilot to fly solo around the world. We were struck and inspired by her bravery. I laughed when I read the simplicity of her words:
"The most effective way to do it, is to do it."
-- Amelia Earhart
Now, you may not be planning to fly around the world, but you can "fly."
The Power Mentoring Program is more than bringing a product to market or taking your business to the next level. It's about making a shift and changing the outcome.
What is your private wish or personal dream for yourself?
The question is, Are you willing to make a shift?
Acclaimed author ANAÏS NIN reminds us...
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage."
I'm here for you every step of the way. Are you ready? Register for the LIVE Power Mentoring Program HERE (begins on June 2nd).

If you're wondering what the Power Mentoring II program can do for you, read Kate O'Malley's experience here...
"I have been working on my product for 7 years. Running into roadblocks, dead-ends, or just plain confusion about where to go and what to do next. By taking Tamara Monosoff's "Power Mentoring" class, the roadblocks, and dead-ends are now an open road of endless possibilities. Tamara's step-by- step approach to getting your product to market is invaluable. By taking this class, I was provided workbooks, and weekly live group sessions, followed by video replays of the classes, to learn everything I need to know to move onto the next step. The discussions were open and helpful each week. I learned more in a few weeks then I ever could have in my 7 plus years of struggling. I would highly recommend this class to anyone who has an idea for a product, or who has "shelved" an idea for a product because they don't know what to do next. Tamara is a fantastic speaker, motivator, educator and resource" -- Kate O'Malley -- Class participant Power Mentoring 1&2 (2014).
No matter where you are in the product development process, if you take this accelerated 4-week Power Mentoring Program (begins on June 3), you will have clear action steps, real resources, and a plan of action for taking your product idea to the next level. Imagine starting your Summer fully equip to achieve your goals. You have heard my students rave about what they've gained from participating. You can have this too.
In ONLY 4 Weeks...
- You will know how to conduct valuable market research including how to come up with an estimated retail price and production cost for your product.
- You will understand the best options for prototyping including a list of qualified prototype developers.
- You will know how to find the safety regulations related to your product.
- You will learn how to find product liability insurance.
- You will gain clarity about how to manufacture your product whether you need a plastics engineer, textile developer or formulator.
- You will be given the names of specific funding resources. I share the names of micro-lenders that I used to fund my business.
- You will learn how to use video marketing, QR Codes, and PR to create buzz and excitement for your business.
- You will gain insight into how to create "WOW Factor" emails that will entice retail buyers to open and read them.
- You will learn new alternative routes to generating sales through daily deal websites, catalogs, e-tailers and retailers.
- You will learn the ins-and-outs of licensing your product to another manufacturer.
Ann Hurley, Founder of Luv Chicken, just completed my Power Mentoring II program last week. Here's what she has to say about her experience... "As a business owner of 2 years, I was feeling stuck and needed some ideas and a little support to push things to the next level. Tamara is amazing! She gave me fresh marketing ideas when I thought I had already tried everything. Her classes were packed with tons of resources that would have taken hours to find on my own. She shared her knowledge of these resources (marketing, manufacturing, etc.) to the point I knew exactly which ones would be a great fit for my company. Her classes were so informative and positive, I couldn't wait to get back to working on my business with the new tools she had given me. She even helped me land a meeting with a senior buyer from a Big Box Retail Store! I strongly recommend this class not only to entrepreneurs just starting up, but entrepreneurs who have been working on their business for awhile and need a little nudge or fresh inspiration. Thank you Tamara for your time, insight and generosity. I can't wait to see how applying everything I learned in your class will change my business!" -- Ann Hurley
If these women can do it, so can you! You can turn your product idea into an income-generating business and I will show you how.

Journey On, Tamara
I'm thrilled to share some news with you. For the past nine months, I've been writing the NEW, updated and interactive second edition of the best-selling, Mom Inventors Handbook: How to Turn Your Great Idea into the Next Big Thing. It officially launches this week!
It is jam-packed with up-to-date resources and information that will blow you away. I have included absolutely every valuable resource I can give to accelerate your success.
This book provides a step-by-step road-map to take your product idea from concept to flying off of store shelves. There are an abundance of new opportunities and I want you to know what they are and how to use them.
All of the chapters are NEW in the book. Here are just a few highlights:
- Manufacturing: You will learn what questions to ask, choose the best materials, set the correct price, as well as the names of proven factories both in the U.S. and overseas (generously shared by the entrepreneurs featured in the book).
- Funding: There are an abundance of resources today to fund your business without going into debt: including crowd-funding, fast online loans, and non-profit micro-lenders. (I used some of these resources to fund my own business).
- Selling: You will know how to sell to retailers, catalogs, distributors, daily deal websites, television retailers, and more! I share the names of the distributors and catalogs that catapulted my business to the next level of success. It took me two years to land these accounts; some of which don't even show up in Google searches so I provide them for you in the book.
- Video Marketing: You will learn how to use both on and off-camera techniques to create captivating videos as well as do-it-yourself PR to get the word out about your product. Here's the video I made in my garage two weeks ago introducing the book. If I can do it, you can do this too. Click to watch 4 minute video.
Personal Stories Will Inspire You:
The best part is that I'm featuring over 50 entrepreneurs, most of whom used the first edition to successfully bring their products to market. You will LOVE their personal stories. The book is interactive and you can scan their stories with your SmartPhone -- I teach you exactly how to do this -- to watch the videos that they made especially for YOU. They share the challenges they've faced, the rewards of starting a business, the thing that has surprised them the most and one piece of valuable advice. You are going to LOVE these stories. I find myself watching them again and again because they touch and inspire me every time.
Hear what one such entrepreneur wrote:
"When I had the idea for Carry-Her Doll Carriers and found The Mom Inventors Handbook (1st Edition), I couldn't put it down! The stories in the book about other mom inventors inspired me and I realized that 'I can do this too!' I'm on track to sell 85,000 units this year with my new placements in Toys "R" Us, FAO Schwartz and Walmart for the holiday season! P.S. I was just reminding my husband of the day I read your handbook...I told him that night that I'd be in your next edition." -- Roberta Wagner
Already on the Journey?
The book is also perfect if you have already launched your business but need help getting to that next level of sales success. The sales chapter is packed with specific how-to information. In fact, I had to divide it into four parts so that you can easily digest the steps and hit the ground running.
Get AWESOME Bonuses!
If you purchase a copy of The Mom Inventors Handbook (2nd Edition) this week... you are going to get AMAZING gifts and you will be automatically entered into a drawing to win a Kindle Fire HD and my new self-paced Power Mentoring Programs. The Drawing will be held and winners announced on Friday, April 4th at 9:00pm Pacific/12:00 Midnight Eastern. All you have to do is follow three simple steps. Click here to get started!

Give a Gift that Matters...
Nothing shows how much you care more than supporting someone else's dream. If you have a friend or family member that has been struggling with getting her/his product ideas off the ground, this book will show her exactly the steps to take but most importantly it shows that you care and support her dreams.
I love what Karen Walker, creator of Swagger Tags said about receiving the first edition as a gift...
"I had no background in developing a product, so I didn't know where to start. I had read a few business books, but didn't find them very helpful. My sister-in-law gifted me The Mom Inventors Handbook and I didn't start reading it right away because I thought it was just another ra-ra inspirational book for women with not much useable information. When I did pick it up in earnest, I quickly realized how wrong I was. It was just what I needed: no fluff, just chapter after chapter of great, relevant and inspirational information. I went from having no clue where to start, to putting together an action plan for my product Swagger Tags."
Imagine...Karen felt this way about the first edition and the second edition blows the first edition out of the water!
With heartfelt thanks and appreciation,
Need Help Selling Your Products to Retailers? Now You Can Have Access to the Top U.S. Retail Store Contact List!
When bringing our product ideas to market, we often focus so intensely on creating the product that we overlook, or put off planning for, the single most important step – selling.
"This information is HUGE! Thank you so much! When I opened it up, I was in awe and all I could say was WOW!!" -- Toni H.
Large product companies must go through the exact same sales process you need to follow: calling the buyer, sending samples and convincing them to try their new items. But they KNOW WHO ALL THE LARGE RETAIL CHAINS ARE.
So, what if you had, in your hand, a list of over 175 top retail chains across North America—that include over 285,000 stores broken down by category?
- Grocery, Drug, Convenience Chains & Clip-Strip Distributors
- Mass Merchants & Department Stores
- Office Supply
- Arts & Crafts
- U.S. Military-Based Retailers
- Leading Television Retailers, Catalogs, & Etailers.
"I think the list's value is well over $100!" -- David H.
Of course, you can create this list yourself. I have been in this business for nearly 10 years and it took me and my team over 60 hours to create this list (and we knew exactly what we were looking for!). There are many 100+ store chains on this list I NEVER EVEN KNEW about.
In addition to providing the list of retail chains with the address, website and phone numbers, in some cases we were able to provide LinkedIn addresses for actual category buyers.
Selling your product to just one of these chains could change the entire course of your business… and your life.
"The spreadsheet looks terrific and will be a tremendous help!"
-- Chris and Sue S.
When you purchase the list, it will be sent to your inbox. Look for the tabs at the bottom (see image below). Click on the tabs to view the contact information by category. For example, if you want to sell your products to mass grocery store chains (see below), you can see that the contact information is right at your fingertips. You can easily print the contact list too.
Kick off the New Year by generating product sales through major retailers! This practical tool will help you plan who to target first. And, if your product is already on the market, you will see opportunities on this list that you may have never previously considered.
My goal is to provide you with tools and knowledge to help you succeed faster.
I want to hear from you! Please share your success stories with me.
