LIVINGSTON, NJ – On Dec. 3, Livingston’s Megan Paradiso, Magic Maker® with Off To Neverland Travel®, An Authorized Disney Vacation Planner, made a different kind of magic when she held the first Livingston Mompreneur “Meet and Greet” event at Keller Williams. Earlier this year, she started a Facebook group called, Livingston MOMpreneurs, for local moms who own/run their own businesses. Just nine months later, with 170 members from Livingston and a few neighboring towns, twenty-eight women attended the first event.

Paradiso planned the event with spearhead Marlisa Zebaida and Beth Ritter Nydick, Lisa Nirenberg Walzer, and Vaishali Agarwal. The following sponsors had tables at the event, where they shared their wares and services:

The women mingled for the first half of the event, greeting old friends and making new ones as they drank coffee and dined on beautiful and delicious desserts.

Later, an informal session started where each attendee had the chance to describe herself and business. Business cards for donated raffle gifts were pulled throughout the elevator speeches.

While this part was similar to a networking meeting, there were no joining fees involved. Rather, a bunch of local moms with businesses, many run from home, got together with people in similar circumstances for a great “Girls Night Out” event.

Paradiso said, “There are groups out there for moms, groups for working moms, groups for business owners, and groups for women business owners, but I am not aware of any local groups that marry them all. The goal of the group is to give MOMpreneurs a place to feel supported and connected to other women who can relate to their struggles and triumphs as they try to actively balance the art of being a successful mom and a successful business owner.”

“I left feeling pumped and jazzed to connect with so many smart women,” she added.

“Many attendees expressed how much they enjoyed the event and that they hope I hold more,” said Paradiso. “After everyone left, the planning committee and I began talking about holding another event in February or March.”
