We’re teaming up with Ricki Lake! And you’re invited to join us.
On September 10, The Ricki Lake Show returns to the airwaves. And with it comes Ricki’s Meetup groups, #Friends of Ricki, that meet up to discuss parenting topics also featured on the show. They meet on a monthly basis. In cities around the country. Sound familiar?
The Founding Moms and Friends of Ricki will be partnering this Fall by joining together in several hand-picked cities. The topic? Mom entrepreneurship. The cities? LA, San Francisco, Dallas, Boston, New York City, Bergen County (NJ), Washington D.C., Chicago, Oak Park (IL) and Naperville (IL).
Stay tuned by finding a Founding Moms’ Exchange near you and joining us (it’s free!). Keep an eye out on the Friends of Ricki Facebook page and Twitter stream for their future meetups, too. See you soon, friends.
