As parents, we all do it all. (Yay, us!) And then there are those moms that really catch our eyes because, on top of it, they have started their own amazing businesses. You might be surprised to learn just how many supermoms live just around the corner from you. Click through our album to meet local momtrepreneurs that are making it as CEOs of their own companies, and happen to be funny, charming and sweet, too.
Jill Salzman – Founding Moms
This Oak Park mom is the mother of all momtrepreneurs. Really! Through her own struggles balancing parenthood and having two businesses she was inspired to start Founding Moms. Her company organizes meet-ups where local mom business owners connect and swap information as well as educate and support each other. Today, there are Founding Moms meet-ups in 40 cities and nine countries -- with 8,000 members strong. In July, this invaluable support system will be going online to give aspiring momtrepreneurs around the world access to words of wisdom form their fellow moms in business. When Jill isn't helping her fellow moms, she's hanging out with her two little rocker chicks, ages 7 and 5. They love catching up on episodes of Master Chef Junior, jamming in their band Cat’s Pajamas, and busting a move during dance parties.
