Nov. 28, 2018 - A popup business on Fort Monroe next week in Hampton aims to combine the idea of a coworking space where work-from-home parents can find community as well as child care.
The popup week also offers business workshops and topics to draw those home workers out of their home and into a community space and tests the market for membership, in which the Momentum entrepreneurs would create a dedicated space.
Founders Aazia Mickens-Dessaso and Marla Schuchman are already entrepreneurs themselves but see a need for creating a community that combines rather that separates work and family. Schuchman is owner of Three Sheep Consulting, a marketing firm, and Mickens-Dessaso was one of five people named an Emerging Global entrepreneur by the White House for her tech startup in 2015.
Popup week will take place at the Fort Monroe YMCA, 8 Ruckman Rd.
Morning themes ($15 per day) run from 9 a.m. to noon. Pick one day or choose all four:
Dec. 4: Brand Storytelling. Learn to build a focused brand message while your child has story time.
Dec. 5, 4 p.m.-7 p.m. (free): Shop at the Momentum Maker Market.
Dec. 6: Set your business goals for the new year working one-on-one with Schuchman.
Dec. 7: Mom Boss Meetup and time to work on 2019 Vision Boards, while the kids make art of their own.
