Want to meet other mamas?

In celebration of our 2019 community mastermind launching this March, we are running a special, free challenge for folks in the Startup Pregnant community to connect with other women and get to know each other. One of our missions here at Startup Pregnant is to connect women, mothers, and entrepreneurs to help make the journey a little less daunting.

Join us and play along on Instagram (or your favorite social network)!

We’ll be hosting a free social media challenge all of next week and we’ll be sharing your answers as a way for you all to meet each other while we do it. Just want to watch? You can do that, too—find us on Instagram as @startuppregnant, where we will be hosting the challenge.

Also, we’ve got a bonus scholarship to award for the people who enter the challenge and share their most creative answers, so if you’ve been wanting to join the Wise Women’s Council and you’re interested in entering into our scholarship competition, read on down below for all the scholarship and challenge details. You can play in the competition alone for fun, or you can enter the scholarship as well—your choice!

The 5-day challenge: play every day!

What is it for? To get to know other members of the community and meet other mamas and soon-to-be business mamas.

Where is it hosted? Watch the Startup Pregnant Instagram channel each day for our challenge question. We will post the challenge question every day at 6AM eastern time on our Instagram channel. We will also share that post on Facebook, in our Facebook Group, and on Twitter.

The challenge questions will include fun and creative prompts for you to share things like:

  • Why is community so important to motherhood?
  • What about parenting has made you better at business?
  • What has parenting taught you about yourself?
  • How do you take care of yourself?
  • What’s your favorite part of business?

These are just example questions, above. The actual challenge questions will be posted live to our Startup Pregnant Instagram channel daily between February 20th and February 25th. Watch our channel for the latest question, and when you see it go live, share your answer to the question on any social media channel of your own. Tag us @startuppregnant and use the hashtag #wisewomenscouncil for us to see your post!

Meet other mamas. Follow the hashtag #wisewomenscouncil and see who else is playing, so you can follow them, meet other female founders, and women business owners.

Get featured on our Startup Pregnant Instagram channel. We’ll be reviewing the stories daily and sharing them on our Instagram page—we will feature you and share the creative, playful, and awesome answers with our community.
