CEOMOM is an empowerment platform for women who are mothers and entrepreneurs. We provide empire building assistance, kid friendly meet ups, and opportunities for your to connect with other moms.
What makes your business one of the best small businesses in your community?
CEOMOM is focused on providing supporting services, events and products for busy working mothers and entrepreneurs with children. Even thought mothers take care of so many others there are seldom a focus on the social, emotional, physical and professional development of mothers who are entrepreneurs. CEOMOM both virtual and in person serves as a support group, resource roundtable, accountability anchor, and business brand builder. Evens are planned with mothers in mind with school day scheduling, kid friendly events or evening children's activities to help more CEOMOMs to have access to their next opportunity.
The following responses will be considered in judging for a SCORE Award.
How has working with a SCORE mentor helped your business?
John is all about building relationships and he has reinforced the importance of building appropriate relationships in business. This foundational mentoring helped me to map out people that I wanted to add value to and also who could possible add value to me.
Please describe the specific ways that your business has been successful and how it will grow in the next year.
We have been able to mobilize the mother & entrepreneur community in the St. Louis metro area. We are building a community in several cities across 3 states, Illinois, Missouri, and Ohio. We host events that allow mothers to develop professionally and socially while their children enjoy activities. We have a growing online community of 800 CEOMOMs and growing and by the end of 2018 it will reach 5k. Within the next year we will connect with coworking spaces to identify more physical spaces that are CEOMOM and child friendly.The online platform and quarterly events will be hosted in 5-7 cities. The Ambassadors in each city will build communities supported by the Founding team with membership and products sales projected for $100k.
