Today’s post is from MOMA a new top range maternity clothing line owned by two lovely ladies who had problems getting good maternity wears while pregnant. They didn’t want to whine about it; they wanted to solve the problem and so here is MOMA.
MOMA, is clothing retail line, we like to see our self as a lifestyle brand for women in the motherhood phase. Today we have launched with our maternity line.
MOMA ensures that the African woman is fulfilled in her lifestyle as motherhood sets in. We want to make you look trendy and professional during your pregnancy months in the office and even after that. We aim to dress you to suit your personal style, appropriate for your weather, and office environment. We also ensure that the clothes are made of high quality fabric, comfortable and yet beautiful.
MOMA was founded after the huge challenge of searching for good looking maternity wear during those nine months while working. The biggest challenge we faced during pregnancy was to look good, sophisticated and professional as we looked just before taking in, during our pregnancy months in the office.
Being working women and at the peak of our career, finding a nice outfit for a meeting or engagement was always a nightmare. Most times we had to order online or overseas and probably get the clothes after we had grown bigger than them.
Our Vision is to be the leading Clothing Retail Brand, where ever we are. We believe our mission is Enhancing the female lifestyle by Dressing Women during the Motherhood stage of their Lives.
Our maternity line is targeted at working women that are faced with the challenge of finding local stores that can keep them looking sophisticated and stylish during pregnancy. This also include women with a Pre-pregnancy body that have not returned to a post pregnancy state, fuller women, (thick mid region) or bulging stomach.
Our just launched “High Flyer Collection” it’s a 2year work ensuring we use Superior fabrics and unique styles for our label. We understand the market and want to dress our clients for this weather with styles irrespective of seasonal approach (winter, spring, autumn etc.).Our Styles come in a range of sizes (small, medium, large etc.) .We plan to have Fresh styles during each year. Our Ability to make our own styles, in the niche Formal apparel market sets us apart. MoMa works at having efficient operations with the Use of Technology (Social media, website etc.) to reach our market. Our prices are Competitive and we want to give our customers excellent Customer care. Later this year, we plan to be in the market via a lot of wholesalers and partnerships.
MOMA is looking for wholesalers and entrepreneurs to partner with. If you are interested in owning a maternity clothing store or becoming a reseller of their wears call 08032012147 and you can also send enquiry emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.

To your Success,
Over the years I come in contact with women who say they want to start a new business or have a side business from their full time jobs. The major problem is always what to do. Some people are lost to what business to start up.
Aside from the fact that your passion could serve as an indicator for what business to start up. I would like to write on starting a business based on just an idea that you might have.
Everything we do in life, every wins or success begins with just an idea. It might just be a thought but if we spend time expanding it, and allowing it to grow in meaning and understanding it just might become something of tremendous success both for you and your family.
So I ask you what idea do you have right now? Write it down don’t blow it away because you never know what / were it might lead to. It is important to always have a note book with you so you can jot down thoughts/ ideas as they come to you.
Do you have just an idea right now but don’t know what to do and how to develop it? Let’s work together and write your answers to these questions
1. What is the idea that you have? Write it down just as you have it in your head
2. Is it a product or service idea?
3. Who will it serve?
4. What do you need to bring this idea to life?
5. Will there be enough demand for your product or service idea to bring about a profit for you?
6. How would you promote your idea?
The whole process of developing your business idea might not be as simple as it is here. But the main idea is to spend time writing down your thoughts. Writing things down helps us to see things differently from what we think up in our head. The process of writing down your idea helps you to see possibilities and how you can work on the process of breaking them down to actionable items.
The answers you give to these questions will help to move you in the direction that will establish you in your business.
Be careful what you do with an idea it just might be what you have always wanted.
If you need help birthing your idea or developing it, do leave a comment below.

Once your business is a few months old, you need to start thinking of tax planning. In order to ensure that your business does not have any accounting or tax problems in the future, it will be best to ensure all documentations are tidied up with or the relevant authorities. It is advisable to seek the services of a professional such as an accountant or a tax consultant.
Tax Planning is aimed at minimizing the amount of tax a given business is required to pay to the government. It also includes ensuring that there are no mistakes in the taxing process, such as a missed payment, missed filing deadline, inappropriate deductions, or incomplete financial records. Read more
Starting up a business is usually an exciting and scary time. Once you have a business plan in place and your have secured a source of financing your idea. The following are a few things which one needs to be mindful of:
Accounting is by far, one of most important aspects of starting and operating a business. It’s so easy to get caught up in the startup glamorous tasks of designing a business card or choosing a business name, yet without a solid understanding of the numbers you will not survive.
The streets of entrepreneurship are littered with former business owners who ignored the financial side of business only to discover too late they were operating at a loss not a profit. Without a firm grasp of your margins and cash flow, you can price yourself right out of the market. Read more
After you would have figured out what your business idea entails, calculating a start up cost will be most appropriate. Every business has its own specific start up cost. Some businesses can start on a shoestring budget while others would require a whole lot of investment to startup. A good way to know what your start up cost will be is to carry out a research on existing businesses like yours.
Try keeping your start up cost to the barest minimum although some businesses might require a large capital set up.
Start up cost could range from,
Business incorporating cost
Licenses and permit,
Cars, fixture and fitting,
Advertising and marketing.
Please note that these are in no way a must for all businesses. Read more
Having a fantastic business idea without funds is as good as not having a business idea.
Funding is one of the challenges an entrepreneur grapple with all the time; especially in an economic recession such as this when banks are no longer willing to lend out money.
After you would have determined how much cash you are going to need to fund your business, you need to know what your funding options are.
How much of your own money do you have to start up your business? Using your own money is the safest and cheapest way to fund a business. At least if anything goes wrong you have only lost your cash and won’t be entangled in debts. Read more
