The Founding Mums' Exchange: Brisbane is the first of it's kind in Australia! The Founding Mums' Exchange: Brisbane (previously The Mumtrepreneur Exchange: Brisbane) first existed when I approached The Mother of Momtrepreneur Exchange™ - Jill Salzman, in November 2010 about bringing her concept Down Under.
My exact words in my first email were "If Oprah can go Down Under, why can't the Momtrepreneur Maven?" or something to that effect. So here we are! The concept grew fast in The States... and it's growing fast here too! I'm very proud to be the original Aussie Host, now partnering with wonderful Co-Hosts, and taken on the role of developing The Founding Mums in Australia.
The Founding Mums' Exchange: Brisbane is a real, live and local monthly meeting where mum entrepreneurs can exchange, connect and learn from one another. Incredible women living right in your backyard meet up to swap start-up stories, interact with renowned business experts, and build personal and professional connections within the ever-growing network of mum-owned businesses.
So why did this concept grow so fast? I love Jill Salzman's attitude... "Because we rock!"
My attitude is if men make big business decisions on the golf course, women can make the big business decisions... in restaurants and coffee shops etc!
Unlike many formal, stiff and expensive women’s-or-business-and-or-entrepreneurial groups out there, we’re real women making a difference and having fun doing it. We dress casually. We bring our noisemakers (babies, toddlers, kids) and discuss the ultimate balancing act. We talk about opportunities to help our business grow. We share tips, we listen to expert advice and we come back for more. We create relationships, promote deeper connections and engage in ways distinct from the daily online blur.
Please join us. Let’s continue to pay it forward and "help mums get down to business".
