Read About 50 Moms Who Manage Families and Run Their Own Businesses, Too

They cook, they clean and, between naptimes, they run a business, too!
Babble salutes the top 50 mompreneurs who pull all-nighters, suffer enormous financial set-backs, and still manage to balance business and baby every day to make their entrepreneurial dreams come true.

Many of their ideas were inspired by their children's activities or moms' needs. With a lot of work they turned those ideas for books, music, toys and other unique products and services into successful companies. One of them founded the Juno Company, whose line of DVDs, books and Apps won more awards than any children's media company the year it was introduced, including an Emmy Award. Many introduced clothing and organic food products, or provided educational networking. Another creative mom's idea was Baby Einstein, a series of videos and books designed to introduce babies and toddlers to music, art, poetry and language. The company was later sold to Walt Disney Corporation.

In working with special needs children, another saw a need for something that would take the fear out of medicine and created "Ava the Elephant," a talking medicine dispenser that makes kids forget their fears.
