What did mom teach you about entrepreneurship? Tell us!

Many entrepreneurs have an inspiring story about how much their moms or another significant and strong female in their lives have meant to them — My StartUp wants to hear yours as we celebrate Mother’s Day with an open call for blog submissions.

Do you have a story about how your mom or mother figure has lit up your entrepreneurial spirit? Did she give you some fantastic advice that you’d like to pass on to others? Or perhaps you are a mom, and your kids have inspired you. Share your story to help inspire other entrepreneurs, many of whom are just starting their businesses.

Here’s a template that will help us help you get your mom-centric blog published. Make sure you give some attention to these details and be sure to send us your blog by May 6th.
