THE

mission

Rita’s on a mission to empower moms to break free from the feast-or-famine cycle, embrace their unique brilliance, and build thriving businesses that create lasting legacies for their families. She understands the challenges moms face, especially those juggling the demands of raising a family without a strong support system. Through Mom Owned and Operated, Rita provides the tools, strategies, and community moms need to achieve both financial freedom and personal fulfillment.

THE

why

Mom Owned and Operated began as a passion project born from a desire to connect with other moms as Rita faced personal turmoil. It was a way to focus on the inspiring stories of how other women were balancing motherhood and entrepreneurship. Through the years, the podcast took a few breaks to allow for personal growth and reflection.

As it evolved, it became clear that moms craved more than just stories and self-care tips – they needed actionable strategies to build profitable, sustainable businesses. Today, Mom Owned and Operated is evolving into a platform that empowers moms with the knowledge and tools to overcome these obstacles, create thriving businesses, and build lasting legacies for their families.
