“My favourite thing about MamaCon was meeting such a wide variety of entrepreneurs who all have very different businesses but also common challenges. We got together and brainstormed and networked and supported each other. We all walked away with a renewed passion and excitement and optimism for the growth and opportunity in our all of our businesses.”

“Thank you for an amazing day! I left feeling so motivated and full of ideas after speaking with other mamas. All the workshops were design to support and help each other in our businesses. Often times, we feel like we are alone in our struggles and roadblocks so it was nice to share our challenges and get feedback from others who can see your business more objectively and think outside the box. Merci!!”
