TRADEMOMS 

As mothers make the decision to step away from their careers to spend more time with their families, they often become burdened with thought of becoming less marketable or having their resumes become obsolete. With TRADEMOMS it is possible for moms to continue to use and sharpen their skills, by either selling or engaging in trade, while getting the things they want or need. TRADEMOMS is a community driven marketplace that gives moms  a platform to trade or sell/purchase services and products with one another.

BIOs

Lisa Raja, Co-Founder

 Founder and mother of two, Lisa Raja started TRADEMOMS, with a vision of creating a global platform, that advocates for moms who want to find a balance between family and career.   Lisa spent 15 years in the fashion industry getting her first taste of entrepreneurship, successfully operating her first business, as boutique owner, of nearly seven years.  She then took on management roles within top Bay Area retail start-ups such as Cuyana, Joyus and Threadflip.  Lisa gained invaluable business experience by specifically marketing to women.  She also got a bird’s eye view on the challenges mothers face as they transition in or out of the workforce.  Lisa realized there was a need for mother’s to be able to create a part time work schedule that flourished around family life.   She set out on a mission to create a community that empowers stay at home and working moms, alike, by offering them the resources to find work in a way that breaks the traditional corporate America mold.
