At Our Milk Money, we don't discriminate. Moms have great stories to share, but so do the Dads. It is definitely a sign of the times when Dads from all over the world begin to step up as primary care-takers and embrace their roles as stay-at-home parents.

 Guys and Our Sports


Ah, October. The best month of the year in my opinion. The smell and feel of autumn is in the air. The leaves are exploding in vibrant colors turning the world into a dazzling, Disney-esque enchanted land. (Unless you live where I do. Thanks a lot, Southern California. Your only Disney-eque enchanted land…is Disney). Anticipation grows for Halloween, Thanksgiving and the joy of the Holidays to come. And it is the single greatest month if you’re a sports fan. College football Saturdays, pro football Sundays…and my personal favorite OCTOBER BASEBALL!  This may be a good time to inquire about...Continue reading →


Chris Loprete, the father of Our Milk Money, began writing his experiences as a new father upon the launch of Our Milk Money, calling his work, appropriately, The Daddy's Den.

How to Get What You Want In Life


Have you ever experienced something that has truly altered your core beliefs and became the one thing that lead you into your greatest self? There is really no telling which event is going to have the largest impact on who we are or how it affects the way we choose to lead our lives… Its inevitable that at some point in our existence there will be a life changing event for all of us. Perhaps it will be a near death experience or even the loss of a loved one. These events force us to confront our current behaviors, re-examine the consequences of our perpetual lifestyles and re-map our life’s purpose, or perhaps its just that these moments are the ones that define us and give us the purpose we’ve been searching for. Depending on the nature of these moments and how you perceive them, even the most tragic events will later transpire as blessings in disguise and precious life lessons.
How you weather the storms in your life are the keys to being able to

Web Analytics to Track Customer Behavior - Why is it Important?

Do you have analytics installed on your website? If they are installed, do you look at the data regularly? Analytics can help you learn valuable information about your customers’ behavior. It can tell you how to provide more value and optimize every customer’s experience.


What Analytics Can Tell You

There are varying degrees of analytics. At the most basic level a simple analytics program can tell you:

* How long a customer has been on your website
* How many pages they viewed per visit
* How they arrived at your website
* How long they stayed on your website
* What keywords brought them to your website
* How they were referred to your website. For example, social networking link


Advanced analytics can show you:

Meet Angela Imes!

Meet Angela Imes.  Her passion is helping other parents.  Read on to learn about what motivated her to start her own business, what she finds rewarding and her advice to others looking to start a business of their own.


1.    Please tell us about your business and the service that you provide:

I am home-based CPA specializing in providing accounting and tax services to individuals and home-based and micro-businesses. My passion is helping other parents who have found their own unique work-family balance.


2.    What motivated you to start your business?

I had lost some of the spark I always had for accounting after my twins were born and found it again when I realized I could stay home with them and use my education, skills, and experience to help other parents find the same balance....  Continue reading


Meet Brenda Jones!



Meet Brenda Jones.  After over a decade in autism and early childhood intervention, she retired from a very successful career to raise her now-3-year-old daughter.  Her venture into being a mompreneur began as a way to be with her but also provide for her.


1.    Please tell us about your business and the service that you provide:

I have two (actually 3) businesses.  Aerowyn’s Castle — hair accessories, tutus, custom tees, and much more.  Master Signing Time instructor certified to teach sign language to infants, children, families, and educators utilizing the Signing Time curriculum (this one is on hold indefinitely).  My newest business is as an Independent Consultant for Rodan + Fields Dermatologists.


2.    What motivated you to start your business?

Aerowyn’s Castle began when my daughter was a few months old.  She had a TON of hair and we couldn’t afford boutique prices for clips, or rather chose not to spend our money on them.  It soon expanded into more items than I can name in this small space.  I became a Signing Time instructor because I wanted the full curriculum for my daughter and I figured I’d give the business a shot.  Not wanting to schedule weekly time away from her, I never taught organized classes, but have done occasional play dates, etc.  It took me a long time to ...Continue reading


Meet Sheila Jones!

1.    Please tell us about your business and the service that you provide:

We offer one on one, in home private tutoring customized directly around the academic needs of each child.  Our business helps to match our exceptional tutors with the students specific needs in order to ensure a great fit, both academically and emotionally for the child.


2.    What motivated you to start your business?

I had a friend who worked at a tutoring center and I would listen to her complain about the amount of money people paid for their kids to be helped and the lack of success they had as an outcome and how parents just  loathed dropping their kids off and waiting for them to have tutoring. I just knew a more focused approach would be a more effective route to bring grades up....Continue reading
