‘Mompreneurs’ on Facebook
Shop & Play Olympic Peninsula has added a new Facebook page to its network called Mompreneur Olympic Peninsula. A “mompreneur” is a business owner who actively balances the roles of being a mother and an entrepreneur. The page encourages local mompreneurs to introduce themselves, promote their businesses and support each other. Men are welcome, too.
