Content Submission Guidelines
The MORE blog targets business owners who are also parents (or perhaps caring for elderly parents). With our content, we seek to give information that helps them get more out of life, make the most of their time and feel empowered.
MORE selectively accepts contributions that meet our editorial guidelines. We are looking for original (previously unpublished) thought-leadership, platform/vendor agnostic, 800 words (or less) articles that offer actionable tips for our readers. We also accept longer forms of content such as white papers or case studies.
You can see topics of particular interest and submit a contributor request on our Editorial Calendar page.

MORE was founded by Amber & Kai-Saun Anderson in 2015. What started as a three-day retreat for business owners with families grew into something bigger — something, well, MORE. Within the first year, MORE became a full-fledged community and movement, providing support and resources to business owners who are also parents or caregivers.
When the couple’s son was born prematurely, they knew they couldn’t return to the high-intensity corporate world if they were going to be the kind of parents and worker they wanted to be. They started their own business seeking balance — that ever-elusive concept so many of us are seeking.
They didn’t find it. So, they sought resources and support. But they couldn’t find those either.
So, they built MORE.
MORE is a multi-pronged program designed to give working parents and caregivers (especially women) who are business owners more. More time, more encouragement, more support, more community, more connections, more education. It’s a place where time-starved business owners can find information on being better parents and spouses and advice for advancing a business. A place to talk about what’s happening in their communities and discuss the latest work-life balance podcast.
Through personalized content, family-friendly networking events, spaces that welcome children, events that acknowledge a business owner’s work and family needs, and other services, MORE helps business owners develop personally and professionally.
MORE’s first event, MORE: the retreat, was held in July 2016 at The Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain in Marana, Ariz. The event welcomed attendees from Utah, Tennessee, Ohio and Arizona, and featured business sessions on strategy and marketing as well as couples sessions on relationships and family goal setting. And it was just the beginning.
In 2017, MORE will host its second retreat as well as monthly workshops, and Milk. Beer. Wine. networking events as it continues to develop content, support programs and business services for business owners who are trying to manage it all.
