The Excitement of ONE! (Happy Anniversary)

Happy 1st Anniversary 30 Second Mom!

Over the last year I became part of diverse, loving group of women.  Each contributor is an expert in a multitude of topics and we all have one thing in common, we are busy mothers! I love sharing my thoughts and ideas with everyone and love the wonderful ideas and support that I've received from 30 Second Mom's!  

Elisa All, our founder and CEO, is one AMAZING Chica!  She leads this group of ladies with expertise and kindness that is hard to find!  Elisa recently opened the 30 Second Mom office at 1871!  1871 is office space located inside the Merchandise Mart in Chicago.  It's awesome to have our "home" buzzing with enormous energy. 

To celebrate our first anniversary in Chicago with many contributors, family and friends of 30 Second Mom! Speakers included Kevin Willer, President & CEO of the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center/1871.  A keynote was given by Mary Dillon, President & CEO of U.S. Cellular followed by a recap and highlight reel of our first year together.  It was truly a wonderful night for all that attended.
