Ladies and ladies, another great post from contributing editor ALI BERLIN and By Moms for Moms (a service, especially for moms, bringing fun, food, fashion, and more) ! Take it away, Ali!
By Moms For Moms, envisioned and established by TriBeCa moms Jodi Zeitoun and Jocelyn Yap, is a business aiming to support women in having fun, enjoying their lives and each other—outside of their responsibilities as mothers. They offer events and experiences for New York moms in order to expose their network to information, services, products and deals while promoting local businesses and community. This summer they also held events in the Hamptons, and they plan to continue expanding as the word spreads.
Jodi is a natural connector and is passionate about spreading the word when she loves something or someone. A typical habit for her is emailing 200 friends to rave about services and products she loves! Jocelyn is a natural business woman. She was president of a luxury fashion brand (Issey Miyake USA) and now owns her own consulting company working with other fashion brands to develop their business. Both ladies are very clear that their own happiness is a critical element to their success.
Not only do they want to grow their base of subscribers, but they genuinely *want* to introduce vendors to a larger audience. In doing so they support their vendors and give the other moms deals that they can’t find elsewhere. Jodi and Jocelyn know that their audience is full of smart shoppers, so they’re not just recycling deals you can find everywhere. These are unique experiences, products and services specifically curated for their audience.
They target things for moms that are interesting but are not specifically about having or caring for a child. Events may be related to children (such as a “How to Talk with Your Kids about Sex” lecture held in May, or a back to school trunk show for kids clothes), but this is not just about being a better mom. Jodi and Jocelyn want to support women in being fulfilled, well-rounded humans with meaningful and hip interests and access to each other and their city. And to just have fun!
