THE

mission

Rita is on a mission to help other moms—especially single moms and those without support—to start, grow, and sustain their own business. This is especially hard while you are in the midst of trying to raise a family and hopefully remember yourself. It is the mission of Rita through Mom Owned and Operated to help elevate and empower moms.

THE

beginning

Mom Owned and Operated was inspired and created based on events that began in January 2020. After discovering infidelity in her second marriage, Rita’s baby sister suddenly passed away. Shortly thereafter, she simultaneously filed for divorce and custody of her two nieces. Rita then became overwhelmed by depression and anxiety.

One day while trying to figure out what to do next, she decided she needed to re-connect with other moms. She started with the podcast and then the mission was born.
