“How fitting that Jill Salzman was the May speaker for the Women in Business Breakfast this month – just in time for Mother’s Day! Although I still believe there is sometimes a stigma involved with being a mom and an entrepreneur, I am inspired by Jill. Her latest entrepreneurial venture is an international networking group for entrepreneurial women. And get this – kids are allowed to attend the meetings! The group is called “The Founding Moms” and has thousands of members across the globe.
If you didn’t attend the breakfast, Jill was NOT there to speak about work-life balance and how being a mom directs your business. Rather, she got right to business (after telling a funny story about her idol, Peter Walsh) to teach us business folks about how we can cultivate our fanbases.
She gave us all kinds of helpful information; but the point she wanted us to remember relates to follow-up.”
