We’re making waves in the city of bridges! Pittsburg magazine Pop City recently featured the experience of Founding Moms’ Exchange Host Rachel Gogos and members Jacqueline Massacci & Paula Adams. From the piece:
Rachel Gogos, on the importance of the exchange: “A lot of my brandID work focuses on women business owners…But I was lacking my own community of folks who had started their own businesses. I have other mother friends but they aren’t founding businesses, so their day to day looks a lot different than my day to day.”
Paula Adams, on how she benefits from the meetups: “We kind of understand each other, being parents,” Adams says. “We challenge each other, ask questions, throw some ideas around.”
