About Lara Galloway

As the Mom Biz Coach, I am a speaker, business coach and mentor to mom entrepreneurs and small business owners. My passion is helping entrepreneurs create and run businesses that honor their priorities and values. Together with Shelagh Cummins, I co-founded MomBiz.com to provide business planning, marketing, project planning and operations solutions to entrepreneurs who want to work less, make more, and love the work they do. I live with my husband and three kids in Bloomfield Hills, MI.

I am frequently interviewed for my expertise on work/life balance, starting and running a successful small business, marketing your business on Social Media, and creatively managing your time by media like Forbes, Crain’s Business, The Chicago Tribune, and More Magazine.

When I'm not working, I'm wrangling my three kids with my husband, drinking good wine or microbrewed beer, and baking something with lots of calories since food is my love language. I love living in Michigan, especially when it's 80 degrees and sunny.
