My name is Candi Wingate; owner of and I started my career as a nanny, working for a family with five children. I quickly learned what families need, and applied those real-life lessons to my business. I’ve been a nanny, owned a nanny agency, started 3 online nanny databases, and wrote “100 Tips for Nannies & Families” and "The Nanny Factor: A Parent's Guide to Finding the Right Nanny For your Family". Plus, I’m a wife and mother of two young boys, so I know first-hand what it’s like to balance work and a family. I believe that women can have it all, but they need help to do so! My company provides that necessary help and support.
Since I was young, I’ve always been a motivated, outgoing self-starter. My parents were self-employed, which motivated and inspired me to do the same. I had a great idea for a business, and I’ve experienced tremendous growth by meeting the needs of other families like my own – who need a little extra help at home. When things in business don't go the way they should, don't give up and stay positive.

Hi there, I think you had a great business idea. So many parents are near-fanatics when it comes to their kids and sports - good for you for identifying that niche.

I love reading about moms that not only have great ideas - but MAKE THEM HAPPEN! :) Kudos!

Find someone who doesn't have young kids so you can do trade offs. You want someone you can rely on in case of emergencies.
