Startup Spotlight: My Super Nanny Is Now In The USA!

Finding a reliable caretaker for your child is no easy feat. Word of mouth may find you the perfect babysitter, but what happens when said babysitter decides to get a full-time teaching gig, leaving you high and dry? What if the next babysitter allowed your toddler to walk up and down a steep staircase unattended, when they’d only just begun to scale those stairs under Mom’s watchful eye? What if you just can’t find anyone you can really trust to watch your precious angels, and you really are in need of a night out with the girls???

Then, it’s My Super Nanny to the rescue.

The Australian-based company is centered around three core values they believe all nannies need to possess – reliability, care, and intuition. Not all nannies are the same, nor are all families. Needs differ greatly. My Super Nanny uses a special algorithm to pair the right partners, leaving parents with more time for enjoyable tasks. For a small monthly fee of $6.95, you have access to lists of carers. You don’t pay for your nanny unless you feel comfortable with your choice and want to establish contact, making it a lower-risk proposition.

My Super Nanny provides fast, efficient and safe methods for contacting carers. After that initial contact, they let the client and the nanny make the rest of the arrangements such as pay, hours, and tasks.

And, the great news is, My Super Nanny has just launched in New York and California! To celebrate the launch, they would like to offer a free 365-day membership, which allows full access to their services. The code to use is MSN-S157L and it is only available for a limited time.

It is as easy as putting sprinkles on your ice-cream:
2. Enter code MSN-S157L
3. Contact unlimited nannies or post as many jobs as you’d like

Who Doesn’t Love SWAG??

I’m a big “Shark Tank” fan. Love the way they refer to themselves as a venture capital firm on steroids. Well, maybe only Mr. Wonderful made that reference…in one episode. But it stuck with me…because it’s kind of true. =)

I love ALL the sharks. I think they each bring their own unique elements to the show and I’ve purchased more than a few products while the entrepreneurs are busy negotiating (read: sweating) the deals of their lifetimes. Quick hint…if you know you’ll be featured on “Shark Tank,” make sure your freaking website can handle the excess capacity! For crying out loud, that’s not the time for your site to crash from being pounded by prospective customers!!!

But I digress…

I came across a video clip of Mark Cuban’s 12 tips for entrepreneurs and while I don’t agree with all of them (specifically #s 10 and 11), most are extremely valuable and should be embraced.

My responses to Mark?

Swag is very much worth the money. Not because I’m a total logo-whore but because I know for a fact there are companies in Silicon Valley making money hand over fist and I’ve got their logo-embroidered golf hanging shirts in my closet.

Plus, LazerShark just secured $2 million in venture funding so…

And never hire a PR firm? I beg to differ. While they cost a heck of a lot if they’re any good, they have the “ins” with folks who can get your company name out to the masses. Sorry, but nobody gives a crap about the founder of a company whose name hasn’t made it public. But given the right PR boost, the founder can write his/her own ticket.

Don’t worry Mark. I still love you. ❤
