Ah, technology. Without it, many of us would never have been able to make the leap out from behind our corporate desks. Being able to build our businesses day or night, tech makes entrepreneurship for moms possible. But with technology comes unique obstacles. Being accessible 24/7, are we able to be truly present in the moment? Does it negatively impact our focus either at work or with the kids? Where do we draw the lines to find a balance that makes sense for us, our families and our businesses? Randi Zuckerberg, author of Dot Complicated and the most tech-savvy mom entrepreneur we know, joins Jill Salzman, founder of The Founding Momsand a champion of the international mom entrepreneur movement, to explore the intersection between tech, business and family life through an intimate fireside chat.
