Share Article

With a vision to reach women across the world, two Midwestern ladies, through their process of overcoming, offer a product which combines "laugh-til-you-cry" humor with a powerful message to encourage women from all walks of life to persevere! God gave 'em to men, but Lady, you've earned them.

What happens when two women with Iowa roots parallel their lives, combine their given talents and sense of humor to overcome adversity, then seek to inspire and encourage women everywhere with what they’ve learned? Necessity being the mother of invention, these co-creators developed a product conceived in humor and birthed through the overcoming process. The product depicts victory with a chuckle, while the accompanying minibook provides a "you will make it" success story.

The Secret Society of Women with Balls Institute announces Port-A-Balls(tm), yes, you heard it right...a product designed to commemorate the valor of women who choose to overcome and succeed. Applying tongue-in-cheek humor to a stereotypically gender-specific phrase proved the inspiration for the Port-A-Balls(tm)product.

The product is Port-A-Balls(tm), TASTEFULLY designed imagery designed to acknowledge the rhetoric, “It took ‘balls’ to do what you did, to go through what you're going through, to keep going.” Designed, manufactured and now available for purchase, Port-A-Balls(tm) is a trademarked, sassy, sophisticated and spirited gift just for women. Enclosed in a hand painted gold gift box, Port-A-Balls(tm)is a beautiful sachet made of shimmering bronze colored fabric, filled with fragrant bath crystals. Included in the Port-A-Balls(tm)gift box is a "pop out" poem which explains the intent of the gift and includes these words: “You have official induction into the Secret Society of Women with Balls Institute. You’ve got balls. . . and Lady you’ve earned them! ©”

For women who have experienced days when. . . it didn’t seem they were going to make it. Who wondered where the next paycheck might come from, when adversities in life seemed unbearable and struggles in decision-making burdensome, conflicts resulted in feeling like the short end of the straw had been drawn, when the temptation to quit trying to do what was right loomed.     Situations in which you learn to overcome result in victory. That victory takes courage and Port-A-Balls(tm)was created to serve as a fragrant reminder of your choosing to persevere.
