Why Are We Shouting?

Jill Salzman wants no part of the traditional business landscape. Also, she can’t stop shouting, especially when it comes to biz advice. “Why Are We Shouting?” tackles the A’s to every mom entrepreneur’s Q’s when it comes to running a company and lets you in on the stories along the way. Jill ponders the big questions of our day: “How can I grow my business without losing my mind?” “Why can’t my kids stop whining when I’m on an important call?” “How long will it take before Stephen Colbert’s team invites Jill to be a guest?”

Jill’s an award-winning entrepreneur, author, global speaker, and gum junkie who’s been building businesses for over a decade. She currently runs The Founding Moms, the #1 platform for mom entrepreneurs to build better businesses. Over the years, she’s tried a million trillion quadrillion different things to grow her companies and wants to save you some time and a few headaches. Above all else, she’s certain of one thing: she never knows what she’s doing. If you feel like you don’t know what you’re doing either, let’s shout about it.
