Mamalode: Creating a sexy, authentic voice for moms everywhere
|February 27, 2015||View for printing|
When stay-at-home mom of two Elke Govertsen was scraping together $400 and the courage to sell ads to a magazine that didn't yet exist, she probably didn't think her passion project would explode into an on- and offline publishing and events platform that's been hailed as "America's best parenting magazine." Then again, maybe she did. A big vision and the drive to make it happen -- no matter what amount of bootstrapping required -- are just two of the characteristics that define the founder and CEO of Mamalode Magazine http://www.mamalode.com/ .

From her home base in Missoula, Mont., Elke identified a powerful niche in the marketplace -- and set out to fill it in a way that'd never been done before. We wanted to know how this 39-year-old dynamo turned her small business dream into a big, beautiful, sexy reality, so we asked. Here's what she had to say.
Since it has been some time that I was home with small children, I did not pay much attention to what was happening with Mamalode. But, somehow I liked their Facebook page and so have been receiving posts of articles on my timeline. WOW! I am so impressed!
