Mothering as Political Action – Sera Bonds, Circle of Health International

Our decisions to mother, how to mother, when to mother; all of these choices (and for some of us there are choices, for others they are not) are embedded in our values, and are indeed actions. In this workshop we will explore why we mother, why did we decide to do this incredibly hard job? How we do it , what are our internal and external motivators? What does this say about us as individuals, and what can we learn from this that we can take into our parenting to become more engaged, active, and politically minded?

There will he group work, role plays, and journalling. As well as lots of laughing, deep consideration, and hopefully a few realizations!

Making your Dreams a Reality – Carey Youngblood, Founder, Heartsong Music Together

It has been Carey’s passion to help families bring music making into their daily lives, and as of 2013, Heartsong has exceeded over 10,000 enrollments.

Looking back, Carey now realizes that all of the teaching jobs she took to try to make ends meet benefited her by allowing her to form in her mind’s eye what an ideal work environment and music school could be. With Carey’s vision of an ideal music school, you will find out how she was able to make it a reality.

With a lifelong passion for education, Christina will explain the untold risks of annuities, pitfalls and successes of 401 (k) plans, the right way to execute a rollover, what hidden fees you’re paying, how to plan for college costs, and why you need to protect your business. Her lively presentations are designed to educate and empower. You’ll learn what a mutual fund is and how to invest in it, the difference between and IRA and a Roth and which retirement account is right for you. Bring your specific questions and bounce your ideas off a national expert. Believe it or not, financial presentations can be fun!

MomCom Life

MomCom Life is a place to connect, share your stories, meet intriguing friends and learn more about yourself and about other women like you. 


MomCom events bring together moms of diverse ages, backgrounds and life experiences to support each other and welcome each other into the mom community. Speakers include women just like you who have built businesses, written books, published successful blogs, or contributed to the community in their own way. They are “ordinary moms” doing extraordinary work. We hope that you’ll walk away from these events forming new friendships, embracing your imperfections and realizing that you have everything you need to succeed right within you.
