CEOs of playdates and payrolls: In the U.S., mom-owned small businesses are on the rise. In fact, the National Association of Women Business Owners reports that 57% of women-owned businesses are owned by mothers.

These women are embracing family life with an unstoppable entrepreneurial spirit. And at UPS, we’re doing our part to help their businesses thrive.

Shop mom-owned: To support these mompreneurs, we’re starting a conversation about what it means to be a mom and a small business owner, highlighting personal stories and releasing a curated gift guide so everyone can shop from mom-owned businesses.  

Get to know some of these businesses we’re loving right now and the women who run them:
