About Us And Our Authors – Welcome and Thank You for Visiting

We operate Thinking Outside The Sandbox with the desire to help people start a business, grow it, and thrive. Consequently, we recognize that many women possess the talent, ambition and drive to start and run their own business. We are part of the WAHM movement (Work At Home Moms) With combined experiences in the Institutional and Corporate world, the emerging idea for many people is to escape the exhausting commute and drudgery working in toxic environments. If you are a candidate for this challenge or are already on this journey please dig deep into our 1,000 + article blog.

We are the owners of TOTS Network which include Thinking Outside The Sandbox and Thinking Outside The Sandbox: Family. Learn more about us and our Authors.

About Us And Our Authors


My name is Susan Wetmore

I am owner of TOTS Business with my Husband Steve. My career was as a Medical Laboratory Technologist working in the Hematology Lab for Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto. I am a Mother of two and active Aunt to six kids ranging in age from 3 to 24 years. Friends describe me as a seasoned enthusiastic Mom and Blogger that is highly active in school activities and crafting. Honored to be an award-winning volunteer at Second Harvest Food Bank. I really love to Cook and Bake and share my gift with Family and Friends.

My Husband Steve stays very busy with the kids activities and is an active musician and passionate listener. Steve takes care of the technical and business end of our blogging adventure.


Our talented team of contributors are the heart and soul of TOTS. Without them, we would not have all of the amazing content we are able to provide you. Located all over the US and Canada, we bring different perspectives on Business, Technology, and Parenting (to name a few). Most importantly, we all agree on one thing: blogging is our life.

We are a PR Friendly blog and would love to work with and promote great Brands and Busineses. Take a look at our Media Kit here for more details.
