It’s been over a decade since I visited Houston and I’m thrilled to return to this city next month for the Mom 2.0 Summit. Last year I heard incredible things about this conference, which serves as a meeting grounds for moms and marketers and this year explores professional, product, and personal paths. My attendance, however, would not be possible were it not for the kind and generous sponsorship of Care.com.
I have long admired Care.com’s work. I covered this Waltham based company editorially back in 2007 because I was hugely impressed by their multidimensional care tenets (not just child care, but also special needs, tutoring and lessons, senior care, pet care, and housekeeping). A few months later they approached me to do some freelance writing for them, primarily in their child care department, which I did until the end of 2008. Towards the end of 2009, Care.com Founder and CEO Sheila Marcelo (a truly lovely, thoughtful, and smart person) and I reconnected over various matters, and this sponsorship emerged at some point in our conversations.
So, thank you from the bottom of my heart to Care.com for sponsoring my trip to the Mom 2.0 Summit. And if you need care of any of the aforementioned varieties (not to mention other advice and resources), check out Care.com's site. All of their care providers are background checked and impressively monitored and the provider network operates in over 30 major cities across the United States.
