Reason for starting
I started my business out of the need to create a balance as a working woman, wife and mommy. After my first child was born I knew corporate America was no longer for me and I started attending networking events. I met some amazingly successful women entrepreneurs and discovered that there was a need for a service that navigates and supports women.

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
Starting a business and being the emotional support of a family with two small children and (due to the economy and just bad timing) an underemployed husband with a lot of law school debt. Staying positive is crucial!
