Here are 10 questions for Marjorie and Lara.
Why is your Pitch a game changer?
M: We are revolutionizing the process for all women ready to have a baby. PregPrep is all about proactive health and helping women conceive with the first over-the-counter conception kit. PregPrep's Complete Conception Kit is safe, natural, doctor formulated and retails for $29.95. PregPrep has helped hundreds of women get pregnant and fulfill their dreams of motherhood.
L: We are helping women get pregnant!
M: Copy editor at Cosmopolitan Magazine.
Who is your biggest advocate?
M: My husband. He is my sounding board, my rock, and truly believes in me and what we are creating for women.
L: Women who have been successful using PregPrep.
M: My partner, Dr. Lara Oboler, tried to get pregnant for six months before discovering mucolytics, substances that thin cervical mucus so the sperm has an easier time reaching the egg. She took a mucolytic and got pregnant the first month three times and she was 40 when she conceived her third child. We teamed up to bring to any woman ready to have a baby the first therapeutic, over-the-counter product that can truly help them conceive.
L: When I read about mucolytics — and how they can help in aiding conception. Then using it successfully — three times!
Who inspires you this week?
M: My college roommate who has been battling a long illness. She is truly inspirational in her strength, courage and will to appreciate her life and family, smile and have fun despite her recent challenges.
L: My father — living every day to the fullest.
Where do you do your best work?
M: Wherever I have my computer. I have three children and meetings all around the city so I can work from anywhere as long as I have my phone and computer — it's my traveling office!
L: In my small, quiet private office!
Favorite female-led entrepreneurial venture outside your own?
M: My friends Jennifer Fisher and Stacey Fraser have two incredible companies — Jennifer Fisher Jewelry and Pink Chicken children's clothing. They are the souls of their brands and have created beautiful products for women and children that are unique and special. It has been inspiring to watch their businesses grow and become widely successful.
L: My mother started a chain of Montessori schools that have been giving top notch educations to thousands of children over the past 30 years.
In 10 years you will be…
