Today on Behind the Boss Mask, I’m speaking with Summer Tannhauser of Lady Boss League. Along with running a successful local business with a number of part-time employees, this former school teacher + mom of 2 young kids provides consultation, courses, + training on how to best use Pinterest for marketing + to drive traffic to your website.
I met Summer via a small mastermind ground that I was graciously invited to by a fellow entrepreneur. Summer has consistently impressed me with her intelligence, wise marketing, + graciousness.
This episode is perfect for anyone who is balancing a growing family, an online OR local business, + hasn’t resolved to be a hermit yet. If you’re juggling more than 1 business idea, intrigued by Pinterest, or returning to work after starting a family, then this episode is for you!
