  • Thanks so much for including Mom Biz Retreat and #MomBizMondays on this list! You’ve done an excellent job with this. It’s so important for mom entrepreneurs to connect with others who really get them. So great to mastermind, share resources, build a referral network, etc. I’ll share this with my clients and community who need to expand their networks!
