Episode 214: Mompreneur – an interview with Masha Goins


Marsha Goins is a 41-year-old Oxford University and London School of Economics educated marketing entrepreneur. She is the founder of @MomToMomfluencer, a business “help[ing] mompreneurs grow and monetize [business] on Instagram.”

Ms. Goins began the momprenership phase of her career after working in the not for profit and big business sectors. She served on conflict resolution teams in several war-torn regions and then worked for Amazon.

Growing up on the US east coast Lyme belt, she frequently suffered tick bites causing her to believe she was a “tick magnet.” Unfortunately, none of her tick encounters were followed up with treatment and she eventually began to suffer from classic, but undiagnosed Lyme disease symptoms.

Ms. Goins visited with several doctors in search of a diagnosis and was misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia and Rheumatoid arthritis. Shortly after she began breast feeding her children, her health crashed and her doctors utilized blood testing to diagnose her with Lyme disease.
