The power of the internet can provide unlimited options for beginning businesses, keeping in touch with long-distance relatives and forming new networks for even the busiest of people. On Wednesday, Feb. 15, at 9:30 a.m., Darien Library will host a panel discussion for parents called "Tech Moms."
The panel features four Darien-based women who have harnessed the power of the internet, launching successful online ventures, all while raising their children. Panelists include Nicole Lyons, who operates AllAboutDarien.com; Jacquie Miller, the woman behind AfterWordsBlog.com; and Jennifer St. Jean, founder and designer at IttyBittyBag.com. The panel will be moderated by Lisa Adams, a writer whose site LisaBAdams.com draws in thousands of viewers.
