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.

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?”

How, exactly, do you get out of a bad situation with a customer or client when you’re in the middle of said situation?

This week’s big business blunder features MyMovementality’s Jordan Wentz who tells her scary story about that one time she was on tour overseas and it wasn’t going so well because she was promised some pretty basic things but management couldn’t get its act together and…well, it unfolds like a movie…only this was her reality, and not one that you ever wanna find yourself in.

Jill Salzman turns the mundane into inspiration and transforms the impossible into the achievable. Through defying expectations and breaking the rules, she succeeds in inspiring entrepreneurs to figure out what works for them by using meaningful action to create positive results.

The Backfiring Mantra

What’s In This Episode:

How often do you think about how you do the things you do to run your business?

We don’t often take a close, hard look at how we run our businesses. Maybe some things used to go well. Perhaps a couple of things might be popping right now. But is everything working exactly the way it should, or are you continuing to run your business the way you’ve always done it?

The Pony Up Predicament

What’s In This Episode:

Why do companies agree to pay us and then try to back out of it when it’s too late? 

Small businesses are taken advantage of all the time. There’s a whole host of reasons that companies decide they don’t need to pony up and the loss falls squarely onto YOU…the entrepreneur that has more to lose than they do. It’s unfair, uncalled for, and something that we may have more power in undoing than we realize.
