“We found that we are constantly stressed for time, so we’ve become quite savvy at using Webbased tools to push and grow our businesses using the Internet. “The reach and networking benefits are exponential,” said Lierman. She is a Web consultant and owner of timeoutmom.com, an online store. "

"The women to help moms in business learn how to use Social Media in a way that is efficient and use time-saving tools so they have more time for their families. "So, the three “mompreneurs” decided to start a series of workshops ideal for moms in business called, “Mom: Grow Your Business Workshop Series.”

"The workshops will be presented in two segments and include an intensive hands-on workshop. That session will be followed up with a Web-based teleclass the next evening that allows participants to maximize their time learning the new tools from the comfort of home. Participants will also network with other “mompreneurs” and receive on-site mentoring, coaching, and suggestions specific to their business, says Lara Galloway, the Mom Biz Coach. Initial workshop topics range from Twitter to e-mail marketing blogs to podcasting and SEO work. "
