4.) Mingling with local professional mompreneurs

I’d like to take a moment and RAVE about the Q&A fireside chats with the mompreneur panel!

They talk about the struggles of maintaining and sustaining their goals, their personal journeys and how you can reach your goals too! From health, beauty, to finance and political professionals, these mamas provide tools and resources that have helped pave their paths!

There were also local small businesses greeting you upon entry! Businesses like Future is Female, Rebel Nell, Ilera Apothecary, Ferne Boutique, and many more shared some of the cutest Michigan-made products around! take a look…
