Mom Owned + Operated

Here we will cut the bullshit and get honest about what it is like to try and juggle all of the things at once.

Real moms. real community. real honest.

Created and hosted by Rita Suzanne. Rita specializes in helping mom entrepreneurs achieve success. She focuses on brand clarity, winning strategies, and powerful conversion tactics.

She has also struggled with juggling all of the responsibilities of running a business and being a mom. She has been divorced twice, has two sons and two daughters. Rita decided it was time to connect with other moms just like her about what it is really like to be a mom and try to do all of the things while life smacks you around.

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.



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. First, she started with the podcast, then added the directory, and then the mission was born.
