The 2012 Leading Moms in Business ranking highlights some of the dominant trends, motivations and attributes among moms in business. They include:
•     A great eye for providing attractive discounts, coupons, savings and value, all especially important to consumer moms of the recession era.
•     A likelihood to come up with innovative products and solutions to address the challenging maze of motherhood. It’s an environment that demands resourcefulness.
•     Conscience-driven business, where “doing well” is just fine, but the real rush comes from doing good.
•     The attraction of being your own boss looms large for moms wanting to take control they just can’t find in a day job.
•     Sustainable solutions and responsible business practices are increasingly paramount.
•     Making the most of social media for business benefit is seemingly a birthright for the socially adept moms.
