Have you heard? Local entrepreneur, mom, and founder of The Founding Moms, Jill Salzman is now a published author, too.
On Thursday, January 12, Salzman wants to celebrate the release of her new book, Found It: A Field Guide for Mom Entrepreneurs, a first-of-its-kind guide for businesswomen of the momkind everywhere! Thanks to Maya Del Sol, The Book Table, and Aunt Peaches - you are invited for drinks, appetizers, and a book!
What with raising two kids (ages 4 and 2) and running The Founding Moms, a collective of meetups for mom entrepreneurs in 30 cities around the globe, why did she endeavor to write a how-to guide for this niche?
Salzman read countless business books, hoping to provide additional advice to members at The Founding Moms' Exchanges and was sadly disappointed in her findings. She noticed a trend of testosterone-driven, how-to books that didn't cover how to build a business while being a mom. Following this discovery, she believed there would be an audience for the type of book she envisioned: more informative, more educational and more estrogen-driven.
“I provide pointers on how to incorporate kids into your daily business routine,” Salzman explains. “You will read dozens of mom entrepreneurs' accounts of their adventures in time management and learn why a business plan may not be as important as you thought. Most importantly, help launch your dream, keep it running, and turn it into a thriving business!”
Found It: A Field Guide For Mom Entrepreneurs comes out January 12. To pre-order the book, visit http://www.foundingmoms.com/books. The book launch party is at Maya Del Sol, 144 S Oak Park Ave from 6 - 10 p.m.
