Meet Julie Fry
Chief Mom Officer
Do you find running a business to be a lonely and sometimes frustrating endeavor? Maybe you started a business to enjoy the flexibility to participate more fully in your family’s life but find running the business to be isolating?
I have experienced the loneliness and isolation of business ownership first hand. And to top it off, when I wanted to start networking for this business – I found meetings were at super inconvenient times like early morning when I’m getting kids off to school or the membership organizations were too expensive.
My passion has always been for small business and building community. In our family, I’m the designated event planner for birthday celebrations and milestone events, so I decided to harness my talents for the mom entrepreneur community. We provide support, education and networking through live and online events for women.
