"Since joining TEM I have learned so much about growing my business. The forum is so comfortable and it feels natural and easy to simply go online and ask my questions. I am amazed at how quickly the other members are to respond when they know the answers or to point me towards resources when they don’t. It’s like having a business resource at your fingertips and for free. I have gained one client from the network and have considered venturing out of my comfort zone in several ways from reading about the creative ideas that others have had to promote their businesses.
It has not only supported my business but whenever I have a question on parenting, I feel comfortable reaching out the TEM for advice and resources. It’s just a perfect resource for a business owning mom.
I recommend TEM to any mom who works and is looking for a community of like-minded moms who all want the best for their families."

Siobhan Green says:
- Made referrals to assist others
- Learned about new resources, tools, organizations, events, etc.
- Gained a sense of community, collaboration, etc.
- Found validation and support regarding work/life challenges
"Through the TEM I found the Community Business Partnership, which has been the most valuable resource possible for us - I strongly recommend it for every single small business, especially women owned small businesses. They have amazing services, and many are free!
I also have greatly enjoyed TEM meetings where I could meet other moms also facing similar challenges balancing life and work. Comparing notes and seeing other perspectives has been invaluable in guiding our own path.
And the mailing list continues to be a valuable resource for breaking news, resources to learn about, and community."

"I have found clients, friends and gotten information for services I need and hired those recommended service professionals. It is a good resource because being a part of the group offers a level of trust you wouldn't find elsewhere. I have found such a supportive enviroment in which I have been able to get valuable feedback from a very talented group of women. It is an important group for me especially because it is valuable to have a resource of like-minded mamas."

April Toman says ...
"Being part of The Enterprising Moms community has helped both myself and my business in so many ways! But specifically with a couple of things. Attending the monthly gatherings and sharing struggles we as entrepreneurs, women, and moms deal with has helped me overcome some of my own obstacles. It's great to know I'm not alone! Also, charitable giving is so near and dear to my heart and I never really knew how to connect it with my business. Fellow Enterprising Mom, Trish Thackston, though was an inspiration for me. Seeing how she uses her business as a vehicle for fundraising and giving back, helped me see how I too can do it! Thanks Carolyn for starting this community where we can grow and develop together!"

"TEM has been great for our site. From my connection to TEM, I have been contacted to participate in Celebrate Mama! and TotSwap, both of which were very successful events for us. I was also asked to be a part of Rock-n-Tot which was a great marketing opportunity. I have many customers from the list as well. I am currently pursuing a referral from TEM to improve our site's traffic. I have really benefited from tips and ideas about service providers, work-life balance and more."
