Think you know what personality type makes for the best entrepreneur? You might be surprised. Jill Salzman tells her story—with cameos from Eddie Vedder and Gwen Stefani -- and along the way makes the case for why moms make the best entrepreneurs.

Jill Salzman is currently growing her third entrepreneurial venture, The Founding Moms, the world's first and only kid-friendly collective of monthly meetups for mom entrepreneurs. A graduate of Brown University and law school, she started a music management firm and then launched a baby jewelry company before creating her current venture. Jill has been featured in national media outlets including People Magazine, The Chicago Tribune, Daily Candy Kids, NBC5 and WGN TV. She is the author of Found It: A Field Guide for Mom Entrepreneurs, a columnist for NBC Chicago, and she gave her own TEDx talk on 11/11/11. In her spare time, Jill enjoys kloofing, baking, and erasing her daughters' crayon artwork from the kitchen walls.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
