The Mom Entrepreneur Members Named Leading Moms in Business

Monday, June 1, 2009
I am very excited to announce that several members from our online support group were honored as part of Startup Nation’s 2009 Top 200 Leading Moms in Business competition.

This was Startup Nation’s first-ever Leading Moms in Business contest, and more than 621,000 votes were cast, supporting a variety of exceptional mom entrepreneurs. Startup Nation’s goal was to spotlight mom business owners and praise their entrepreneurial spirit, creative ideas and business savvy.

The Mom Entrepreneur’s Online Support Group provides resources, advice, feedback and discussions around topics that are relevant to mom entrepreneurs. Our organization’s online network helped promote members who were in the running for this contest through our newsletter, in group discussions, on our blog, and through online social networks like Twitter and Facebook.

Approximately 50 of our members were part of the competition, and everyone in our online support group was encouraged to vote daily for members who were running. It was due to this huge collaborative effort that many of our members were able to get the votes they needed to win this contest.

As a result, The Mom Entrepreneur members who were recognized as Top 2009 Leading Moms in Business include:

Startup Nation held this contest to celebrate the triumphs, tribulations, capabilities and achievements of moms running businesses across America.

We know first-hand that mom entrepreneurs are tremendous multi-taskers, juggling business and family responsibilities. As a group, we’re resourceful, driven, creative, motivated, passionate about our beliefs, and committed to achieving a successful work-life balance. It’s a great joy to celebrate the achievements of our members, and I am so genuinely pleased that they were recognized in this competition.

Great job moms!
