Influential Woman - Julia Buerger

Influential Woman - Julia Buerger

I've been following and reading the Atlanta Area Moms Blog for a while now; its an amazing way to connect all moms within the city and provide an element of support. After digging into the blog some more I came across Julia and Lauren; both Co-Founders of Atlanta Area Moms Blog and I could not help but love what they represent. They want and have nicely accomplished a support system, educational environment and a community that makes moms feel supported. I cannot tell you how many of their blogs, event ideas and guides have helped me through this first year of motherhood. Not only are they business owners, they are moms as well - and like us all...they juggle; yet they inspire me and other moms to be the best moms. Love me some, Mom-Boss-Ladies!

9. What is your favorite question to ask? How did you meet?

10. Biggest piece of advice to new moms? Remember your partner is new to this too.  Take advantage of the partnership and encourage them to help you.  They will not do it just like you, but they need to learn at same pace.
