Maria Freeman is the founder of Little Jots (www.littlejots.com), whose motto is "Write Your Child A Hug".
In this episode, Maria details how her desire to add positivity to children's lives - stats show kids hear about 30 positive statements per day, versus over 300 negative statements - led her to create a product and a business that has helped families stay connected and changed lives for the better.
She points out that kids reflect what they hear and see - so it's best to give them something positive to reflect on! Love this woman :)

Welcome to the "Know Your Numbers" series on Elaine's Kitchen Table!
You often hear "know your numbers" as one of the most important aspects of being successful in business. But what numbers do you have to know? Our goal is to go over all the important numbers, and tell you why they are important, so that you can feel confident knowing your numbers. It's not rocket science, and for small businesses it's not even advanced accounting.
In this episode, we discuss "spending a little to make a lot", specifically using Square as a credit card processing service.
Let me know what numbers you'd like to know about next on Twitter @chatwithelaine!
Dea Viola is such an inspirational woman and mompreneur. Somewhere between her business, the Baby Flamingo Company, her singing career, and her charitable work with humanityhealing.org, she finds time to raise 5 children!
How does she do it? Dea tells us all her tips that keep her sane and moving toward her goals, tips like:
• Living in "plane emergency landing mode"
• Her "same shoe size and brand theory" on harmful comparison behavior
• How to "start your day over" any time you want!
• Overcoming perfectionism
As Dea says, you don't have to do everything today, but if you do something every day, in a month you will have accomplished 30 steps towards your goal!
