Real Women Making a Difference
When asked why membership community building is so important, Jill replies that it’s a matter of identifying the need in a community and attempting to fill it.
While Founding Moms’ meetings began in person with just a few participants, the demand was so great that Jill has expanded to both offline and online group meetings, providing the opportunity for participants to pool resources, network, and offer advice as they build their businesses.
As the creator of the only networking community that invites members to bring their children as they learn more about optimizing their business, Jill has built an accessible, loved, and trusted brand.
