Women-Owned Business Guide

Here at Lansing Mom, there are two things we love more than anything else: supporting other women and supporting small businesses. Hence the Lansing Mom Guide to Women-Owned Businesses In + Around Lansing was born. We want to showcase all of the incredible women who have created amazing businesses in hopes that you’ll decide to choose them the next time you’re looking for any type of product or service.

This guide is ever-evolving and continuously growing so be sure to check back frequently for updates. We are so proud to feature these women-owned businesses and hope you decide to check them out! If you have any additions or would like to be considered to be added please email [email protected]

We provide a beautiful and safe environment for the youngest child to explore, rotating our materials and offerings to keep the space fresh and interesting. We would love to welcome you into our space to play, chat with other parents, enjoy curated play and parent support with a focus on inclusion,  development, and connection for both young children and their grownups. The Emerging Parent offers classes, small group style open play, private events, birthday parties, parents only gatherings, support groups, and more.

Conveniently located in the Lansing Mall, Socialight Society is Lansing’s Black-owned, woman-owned independent bookshop. Recognizing the lack of representation in traditional bookstores, Socialight Society curates a collection of classic, contemporary, and children’s titles written for and by women of color. The impact of this initiative has garnered national attention and recognition, with features in notable publications such as The New York Times, The Root, and even a mention from Oprah’s Book Club.

You can often find us out in the community sharing book recommendations and spreading Black Girl Magic at various pop-up events, ranging from festivals to school book fairs. Beyond books and gifts, we offer story time, book clubs, author meet & greets, private events, business mixers, and more!

Here at The One Wish Foundation, we know what it’s like to have that one wish- to have a family. After finally being able to be blessed with our two beautiful boys through IVF and adoption, we have made it our goal to provide support for those who have that same wish. Our foundation:

    • Provides grants to ease the financial burden that comes with infertility treatment and adoption.
    • Creates a community of people who know what it’s like to struggle with starting a family.
    • Provides resources and support for those experiencing infertility and pregnancy loss.

I’m Katie and I’m a human who believes in art and that photos and videos are an expression of art for all of us, and that it’s the most beautiful form of art because it’s you and the people and things you hold closest to your heart. I offer Mentor Services for Women in Business from Photographers to anything you can dream of, along with Social Media Services and more! Let’s connect to see how we can align your life with your soul.
