Stay at Home Moms are GREAT!


The picture above was taken at our Rochester Balloon jam this past summer.

Lisa, on the left in a purple shirt, is a hard working stay at home Mom who started as an artist on our Albany team and now is our Regional Partner for Rochester. She initially joined our team as a part time artist 2 years ago and steadily worked her way up to Trainer, Sales, and now RP.

We LOVE stay at home Moms!

Why? They have a very stable and consistent lifestyle, are wonderful with children, and they are looking for work that is flexible and works around their schedule.

As an Independent Contractor with Balloon Distractions they get to choose their weekly schedule each week, and because our entertainers average $20 to $60 per HOUR they do not have to be away from their family for too many hours and they can still earn a decent income.    

As a company our Independent Contractors run the gamut from college kids, Moms like Lisa, veterans, and retired folks looking to do something that is low stress, yet lucrative.

Our best Regional Partners started as artists and worked their way up to running a region.

It’s OK to start small, running a region is NOT for everyone!

Of course, if you just want to fill gigs as an entertainer we have many Moms that do that as well; with BD you can get out of the house a few nights a week!  


A REAL business?


When Balloon Distractions started hiring independent artists in Tampa back in 2003 many people did not feel that we were a “real” business.

We had no storefront, no reputation, no proven history.

For the first few years the Chili’s chain of restaurants told us “NO” about a million times……

When we appear on Shark Tank in a few short weeks our brand and logo will be seen by 7.5 million people across North America, and we will become THE national “brand” for balloon art and entertainment in the mind of the American public.

People from all over the world will look over our YouTube channel, Facebook pages, Instagram, Twitter and this blog to see who we are, what we do, and what VALUES we hold dear.

We want the public to see an opportunity to have FUN and make some money in a creative enterprise that is run by people of character who also give back to the community:

We also want them to see that it is easier to be a part of a national organization that really understands how to sell to the big national chains and recruit talent from many different sources.

You can rip off our idea, but you are putting yourself far back on the learning curve, you will actually earn more, and earn faster, by benefitting from our Online Artist Orientation, Online Scheduler and national reputation with restaurants.

So what if you are reading this and STILL questioning whether we are a “real” company or not?

Look at all the great artists on our YouTube videos, look at the pics of our company’s founder in Honduras putting in water filters and making balloons for children, or just search Balloon Distractions on Facebook and look at the hundreds of Independent Contractors who list their affiliation with us….  

We want to connect with GREAT people out there who share our family values, a strong work ethic, and a desire to try something new that will bring joy to children and adults alike.
