A mentor encourages and inspires individuals of all ages at various stages in their lives. Knowing first hand the positive impact a mentor has on someone’s life, Felicia Wright a mom, social entrepreneur and military spouse launched Mentoring Mamas™. The peer-to-peer mentoring program is designed to support mompreneurs in addressing the unique issues they face in raising a family while running a business.
According to the 2013 State of Women-Owned Businesses report, there are an estimated 8.6 million women-owned businesses in the United States. Florida ranks number 4 out of the top 10 states that have the highest number of women-owned businesses with approximately 572,900 women-owned firms. Among businesses that operate out of the owner’s home, 72% are operated by women (2012 Global Entrepreneurship Monitor report). “Having the support of like-minded individuals who have been through similar experiences is vital in helping us reach our goals,” said Mrs. Wright.
We are excited to bring this type of grass roots program to the Jacksonville community. Throughout the program, participants will gain personal and professional support, build relationships, and obtain valuable information from business experts. There are a limited number of business spots available. Note: Although the program is geared towards moms with children under the age of five, all mompreneurs and children are welcome.
