 What the heck is M4M ’ s anyway?

• Marketing is essentially everything – it is
your product, it is your place, it is your
promotion, it is your price. It is your
brand. You do not exist without marketing.

opportunities to connect with other like
minded individuals who can support ,
mentor and assist each other .
• Marketing4mom’s objective is to provide
supportive solutions to the established and
aspiring mom entrepreneurs through
networking, small business resources,
referrals and events in the GTA.

 Fear is the one and only thing

that will keep you from achieving all
that you want to achieve, or living
the life you deserve. And the truly
insidious thing about fear is - it's
completely self perpetuated. We create
the dread that clogs up our lives".
