Jill Salzman is currently growing her third entrepreneurial venture, The Founding Moms, the world’s first and only collective of offline meetups and online resources for mom entrepreneurs. A graduate of Brown University and law school, she started a music management firm and then launched a baby jewelry company before creating her current venture.

Jill has been featured in national media outlets including People Magazine, CNN’s Headline News, The Chicago Tribune, Daily Candy Kids, NBC5 and WGN TV. She is the author of Found It: A Field Guide for Mom Entrepreneurs, a columnist for NBC Chicago, has been published in The New York Times and gave her very own TED talk on 11/11/11. In her spare time, Jill enjoys kloofing, baking, and erasing her daughters’ crayon artwork from the kitchen walls.

Armed with a degree in philosophy from Boston College, Tamara Nolte decided the world of improvisational comedy was for her. Her bike-path to stardom quickly took a detour, when she landed a job at an early-childhood start-up called Bubbles Academy. She fell in love with systems, websites, technology, people and with making things happen and for nine years she was instrumental in growing the organization from a delicate infant to the nine year old pre-teen that it is today. Doer and do-gooder Tamara continued to perform and teach improv across America, eventually landing a teaching gig at the illustrious Second City.

Her career paths seemed so separate until she realized her true calling: Tamara brings ideas to life. So, she completed her MBA from The Kellogg School of Management. She’s eager to put her degree into action and help folks get down to business. And rest assured: her comedy training will offer up some seriously awkward jokes. Call her today!

Forbes Top 10 Websites for Women


  1. Why would I purchase The Founding Kit if I can find service providers on my own?

    You like to ask the tough questions, don’t you? This one’s easy enough: You won’t find better service providers at more affordable prices. We’ve teamed up with the best of the best, and by the time you’re finished working with them, we’re confident that you’ll agree with us.

  2. How does the process work once I purchase a Kit?

    Once you make your purchase online, you will be issued a log-in and password. Then we’ll take it upon ourselves to have you up and running as quickly as you so desire.

  3. What if I don’t need all the items offered in a particular Kit?

    Then stick to The First Aid Kit, our à la carte option. You can choose anything you need from that Kit and don’t have to go all the way.

  4. Can I share my Kit with another person?

    Not at this time. We’re looking forward to making that a possibility in the future, but for right now, you can’t.

  5. What if I use up one of my services and want more time with that provider?

    We’ll be happy to make that happen for you. Our service providers are at the ready to help you along as far as you want to go. We’ll make the introduction and you can continue your relationship with them for as long as you’d like.

  6. If my Kit includes things like domain names and logos, do I own it or do you?

    You do. We’ll take the information that you provide to us and register any new accounts under your name. You own everything. We’re just here to help!

  7. How do your Payment Plans work?

    If you need to split up your payment into two or three payments, depending on what Kit you choose to purchase, we’ll be happy to discuss that with you. Please contact us!

  8. Is my information safe & secure?

    Of course it is. We take this part pretty seriously. [ → Privacy Policy ]

  9. Can I see samples of your previous websites and graphic design?

    Sure can! We’ll be happy to email you a .pdf asap. Just let us know.
