NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — The Local Moms Network is not just local anymore.

Jessica Blouin and her two partners returned to the workforce by starting the hyperlocal platform for moms with resources for doctors, schools, and child care as well as news and features for moms.

"My partners had moved out from the city to the suburbs and they'd started compiling great information on a website and promoting it via social media as well," Blouin told Joe Connolly in this week's Small Business Spotlight, sponsored by BNB Bank — "Community Banking From Montauk To Manhattan." "Then businesses wanted to start to partner and other moms wanted to replicate it in their towns so we started to spread throughout Fairfield County, then we got into the Westchester suburbs, and then a mom had heard about it in Houston and then we're all over California." 

Now, three years since launching, The Local Moms Network is in 100 suburbs around the country run by entrepreneurial moms in each area who do everything from marketing to ad sales all on their own schedules.

"We started to get so big we ended up launching The Local Moms Network as a hub for all of our various locations and through that partners have come to us and we're able to syndicate content features or work with them in different ways to help tell their story and get the word out to moms that live in our suburbs," Blouin said. 

Blouin will share insight on how they tapped into a need and are rapidly expanding at the upcoming WCBS Business Breakfast in Stamford on March 25. Register today if you're interested in attending.
