Coach - Personal & Business

Maybe it was my ego or a deep-rooted stubborn streak or just plain ignorance but I spent way too much time trying to figure out things on my own. This Don't-Ask-For-Help deficiency gene impacted all areas of my life from parenting to running my business, and everything else in between. I had no idea the power and motivation and creativity that comes from being with a group of like-minded individuals and really digging into concepts, insights, practical tools that I could use in my day-to-day business world. 

Then I discovered The Founding Moms. 

The Founding Moms was started by founder Jill Salzman whom CNNMoney refers to as  a "mommy mogul". She likes to describe her creation as "a collective of offline meetups and online resources where mom entrepreneurs exchange, connect and learn from one another." And it's really taken off with groups meeting in 43 cities (9 countries) around the world with 8,000+ members. 

And it gets even better. 

On Monday, October 6th, Salzman is throwing her first all-day Founding Moms Conference at Lincoln Hall in Chicago. By bringing inspirational speakers and workshop facilitators together, she plans on reenergizing the mom entrepreneur community with top-notch business expert Christie Hefner and money maven Barbara Stanny. Workshops cover topics such as sales, marketing, pricing, leverage and so much more! 

Take the time to get out from behind your computer, gather with other women and get ready to be inspired by experts in every field that will help you transform your business.
