Elena Ladoux was a busy attorney and mom juggling a demanding career and home life. Determined to “have it all,” she went on a search for a natural product that would help give her a boost of energy and focus on the days she needed it most. But after years of research and still coming up empty handed, she did what any determined mom would do – she created something herself. 

MommyGo is a  healthier and gentler alternative to the traditional energy shot. Made with ceremonial grade Japanese matcha tea, MommyGO provides hours of calm alertness to power your presence when it matters most. It is packed with antioxidants, is low on sugar and 100% natural.

In my conversation with Elena, you’ll learn: 

  • How she’s built a successful company around the mission of helping moms “have it all”

  • How she leveraged her personal social media network to get MommyGo off the ground

  • How she went from a litigator to running multiple businesses (that’s right, MommyGo isn’t her only venture)

  • Plus, why she thinks her lack of formal business education has made her a better entrepreneur
