A wildly profitable business can equal a lifestyle that you desire.

Your family can be your biggest supporters when they understand the reason behind the work that you do. 

It's all the more reason to have a support team that will help you set that intention.

The ability to serve more clients allows you to spend more time with your family doing the things that you love. 

Let’s get rid of the guilt and excuses.

The idea of the theme of the 2013 conference came about as a mash up of the RDIA Consider Cloth program and a TED Talk in February 2013 by Amanda Palmer entitled "The Art of Asking." Amanda Palmer examines the relationship between artist and fan. We looked at ways we can apply that thinking to the relationship between cloth diaper business owner and parent. We asked Shayla Boyd-Gill as our keynote speaker to address that idea of the art of asking parents to consider cloth diapers.
