If you are wondering what the heck is BAM, it’s just our affectionate acronym for Business Among Moms – BAM!  It’s fitting because the women we attract are full of awesomeness.

We host events that support and showcase mom entrepreneurs and help them build their network.  We’d love to meet you and learn about your business.


Pre-registration required

See our upcoming events on the calendar


You will find a welcoming group of women (most are moms, a few are not) that are here to get educated, share resources, encouragement and network.  We encourage building relationships first, because people do business (and refer business) to those they know, like and trust. We don’t just sell to each other; we celebrate each other.

Small group discussion is followed by either a business speaker or our business showcases.

We know you’ll come away with a few great new connections!


While any woman in business is welcome to attend our events, members receive money-saving and business building benefits:

  • Free/Discounted Event Attendance
  • Private Facebook Group Membership to keep the networking going online
  • Listing in our Business Directory
  • Opportunity to showcase your business at a BAM event
  • Feature of your business on our website (annual, lifetime membership)




Los Angeles – South Bay Chapter Leader: Paola Gleghorn


Paola is passionate about supporting mom business owners.  As a mom of five kids from little ones to teenagers, Paola understands the challenges faced in running a business while simultaneously raising a family. Leveraging her prior accounting experience and business courses at George Mason University, she started her own business as a bookkeeper to help other women business owners and creatives by freeing them up so they can focus on their passion: growing their businesses.  Paola loves meeting other mom business owners and enjoys the support and camaraderie shared between them.  That’s why she decided to start a BAM chapter in the South Bay area of Los Angeles.  She hopes it will be a place of refuge and inspiration for other women too.

Paola is originally from Peru but grew up in Long Beach.  As a former military wife, she has moved all around the country and has gotten to know amazing individuals.  Her husband of 19-years and five children have settled in the South Bay and are enjoying the weather and people.

Paola can be found digitally scrapbooking, hanging out with her family or having a glass of wine and binging on some of her favorite shows.
