The Teamotions model uses these start-up business tips:
1. Use your background: Rachel Crawford is a Marine military spouse and she is (and should) tell everyone because this makes an immediate connection with service members, veterans, and spouses.
2. Have a story: If your company has a compelling tale behind it and sharing this helps make an emotional connection with the target audience and possible, free publicity through news sources looking to feature human relation pieces.
3. Use social media: Be everywhere. On Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and YouTube for starters and be yourself so visitors understand not only your brand but the person behind it.
4. Have a mission statement beyond profit: Teamotions creates a military spouse job opportunity and also, brings comfort whether it is due to loss, injury, or…how about some comfort after divorce?
