In Her Shoes: #MOMBOSS

#HipNJ’s Lisa Marie Latino attended Bloomingdale’s Short Hills’ In Her Shoes: #MOMBOSS event and spoke to some of the Garden State’s power moms.

“It was energizing to be here,” Priya Virmani, CEO of Privée by Priya, stated. “I loved being surrounded by all of these inspiring women and hearing their stories.”

“There were such good questions that were asked,” Mallika Malhotra, CEO of MikiFoto + Co, recalls. “People were feeling inspired, really connected, and also shared their stories.”

Cheldin Barlatt Rumer, CEO of This is It TV, raved about the event. She says that ten years ago, this event would not have even existed. “To be able to talk about the entrepreneurial spirit within mothers, it was just wonderful.”

What did Danielle Forte, CEO of 828 Clothing, take away from the panel? “Learning balance, and giving yourself some grace,” she says. “Live your dream and have fun.”

Latino also spoke with Co-Sponsor of “In Her Shoes,” Dina El Nabli. “No matter where you are in your parenting journey,” she stated, “we share the same struggles, and we are so inspired by the tips today.”
