It’s International Women’s Day. Because Pip & Grow is a woman-owned company, I’d like to take a moment to give a shout-out to the incredible women who make Pip & Grow “go”. Our blog posts are usually planned months in advance, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to surprise my team of supermoms on International Women’s Day. My co-founders Kate and Amber are both working mothers – mompreneurs – and they deserve some serious props.

These ladies inspire me daily with their ability to get by on little-to-no sleep; to focus in the midst of a million competing priorities; and to be stellar team mates in addition to being wonderful mothers.

Kate, COO

Kate Barr Mompreneur

Kate has not only brought Pip & Grow to life in the past two years in her role as Chief Operating Officer, she has also birthed two babies during the time we’ve been on this crazy adventure.

Amber, CIO

Amber Kroeker Mompreneur

Amber works a full-time job as a safety coordinator, in addition to her other full-time job as Chief Innovation Officer at Pip & Grow, and still finds time to be mama to her three sons.

A Toast

Starting a company takes grit. These women work HARD. They take conference calls while driving their kids to school. They work all hours of the day and night. They show up. They get the job done, no matter what.

Happy International Women’s Day, ladies. Pour yourself a celebratory beverage and toast to all of the incredible women taking care of business around the world!
