October 5, 2023 /3BL/ - With an unwavering commitment to supporting working mothers, Danielle Melton founded MOTHERboard Society (MBS), transforming the landscape of self-care and wellness through her tech-enabled subscription program – combating burnout and promoting self-care and wellness through holistic programming. Now, she’s making a significant impact in the lives of women striving to balance their careers and motherhood.

Having experienced the challenges of juggling a successful career and motherhood firsthand, Danielle was inspired to create a community that understood the unique struggles faced by working mothers. "Studies show that 92% of working mothers don't feel supported by their community. So knowing that MBS is that community we working mothers truly need is all the motivation I need to keep going!" said Danielle.

MOTHERboard Society offers a holistic approach to combat burnout, providing tailored programs and a supportive network of like-minded individuals. Danielle’s background in Executive Leadership in education laid the foundation for her innovative subscription program, which now reaches over 13,000 women in the United States and across the world. MBS has launched national chapters, conducted signature events, created a mom-owned business directory, and led impactful community initiatives.

Key to Danielle’s success has been the support she’s received from Sky’s the Limit mentors. Several remarkable individuals, including Mia Long, Associate Manager at Accenture, have provided invaluable guidance, shaping MOTHERboard Society’s trajectory. With their support, Danielle secured a $2,500 grant from Sky’s the Limit, highlighting the potential and impact of her work.

“Mia emphasized the importance of getting detailed with our buyer personas. Her insights prompted me to delve deeper into understanding the specific needs, challenges, and aspirations of our target audience, which is working mothers. This refined focus has enabled us to tailor our services more effectively and create a marketing plan that is more aligned with our audience's needs. Mia's expertise has been instrumental in helping us position MOTHERboard Society for faster customer acquisition and growth,” said Danielle.

“Nearly 70% of Sky's the Limit entrepreneurs are women. Of the small businesses in the U.S. today, almost 13 million of them are women-owned, and women of color are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the country. With MOTHERboard Society, Danielle has created a vital tool for women so that they can continue to make their marks as entrepreneurs," said Laura Plato, Chief Operating Officer at Sky's the Limit.

Danielle Melton’s journey with MOTHERboard Society exemplifies how the right mentorship and a clear vision can lead to remarkable success in the world of entrepreneurship. Her dedication to improving the lives of working mothers serves as an inspiration to all.
