Maria Hunt is a tech entrepreneur who got her start back in the early days of Myspace. Now, she’s the founder of Unicorn Moms, an online community with more than 70,000 women. In addition to an active Facebook group, she’s also launched the platform’s mobile app to allow moms to embrace their individuality and to connect with other unicorn moms in their areas through increased geolocation capabilities. Both the Unicorn Moms sites and app cover topics that moms want to talk about, ranging from their favorite deals, cocktails and recipes, to airing their dirty laundry, or even seeking advice on their career goals and marital challenges.
Listen in as Maria breaks down the myth of the perfect mom and shares why there is power in confiding in one another, supporting one another, and laughing through the challenges of motherhood online as a community.
