As the CEO of Idea Incubator, MaryEllen not only recognizes what it takes to be a working mom, she also lives the life and is able to blend all of her roles with relative ease.
MaryEllen is also the proud Founder and CEO of Working Moms Only .com, the world’s leading newsletter and website for the empowerment of the working mom.

Because of her impressive track record of generating revenues and profits, MaryEllen is known in the Information Publishing world as “The Money Honey.”.

In New York, she ran divisions at Forbes, Times Mirror Magazines, and Crain’s New York Business and had some of the best direct response marketing and business mentors in the world. Due to her superlative direct response and business building skills and her ability to “channelize” marketing campaigns, MaryEllen is a highly sought- after business consultant, speaker, and author.
Her first book – which she co-authored with Michael Masterson is, Changing the Channel: 12 Easy Ways to Make Millions For Your Business. It hit #1 on Amazon.com within just 10 hours of its release.
