San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 27, 2013

PlanetSoho, the leading provider of easy-to-use online management tools and services for small office / home office businesses (SOHOs), announced the recognition of mom-and-pop businesses everywhere in conjunction with National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. This Friday, March 29, is a day to celebrate the couples who work and live together.

“Today’s mom-and-pop businesses don’t look like they did a decade or two ago,” said PlanetSoho CEO Ron Daniel. “They are young entrepreneurial couples who run profitable businesses out of their own home while raising the kids and living social lives. Our service leverages technology not only to manage their business for them, but also to market it and help them get them paid. More than one million small office / home office workers are striking a balance between career and personal life because we’re enabling them to turn their hobbies into a career.”

Gwynnis Mosby and her husband Phillip own Gwynnis Mosby Makeup Academy in Atlanta. With over 30 years of experience, Gwynnis has done professional makeup for celebrities such as Faith Evans, Sean “P. Diddy” Combs, and Toni Braxton. Two years ago, she and her husband started their own business, and quickly realized they needed help with invoicing and inventory. They discovered PlanetSoho and say it has been instrumental in their success.

“PlanetSoho is a breath of fresh air because we can work together with a limited amount of stress on the relationship,” said Mr. Mosby. “Little things like being able to integrate email contacts and 24-hour live customer service let my wife do what she loves to do, which is makeup. With the aid of PlanetSoho, managing our SOHO is a breeze!"

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day is also a good reminder for couples who have their own shops, either in the home or in the neighborhood, to strike a balance between business and love. In fact, a recent survey of more than 1,300 SOHOs found that starting a SOHO was the key to finding balance. Respondents reported all of these improvements:

PlanetSoho and its tools are designed specifically for the large-but-often-overlooked SOHO market - there are more than 25 million SOHOs in the United States alone.
