After Building Her Own Business, This Colorado Mom is Helping to Empower Moms Everywhere

by Heidi Ganahl on September 23, 2015

Heidi GanahlThrough Camp Bow Wow, I’ve loved watching women launch one of our franchises and do an incredible job of building their business, and their independence,” Ganahl toldOpportunity Lives. “About 50 percent of our franchisees are women. Through the work I’ve done over the years on the charity side with our Bow Wow Buddies Foundation, I’ve seen the power of cause-based capitalism and how powerful businesses can be in helping to make the world a better place.”

Ganahl recently sold Camp Bow Wow to VCA, a leader in the pet care industry. As a mother of four children ranging in age from 3 to 20, she’s had to deal with a host of challenges in her parenting role. Now she’s using her hard-won experience to help other moms, and she says she’s excited to give back after all her success.

I’ve had so many life experiences that help me support and empower other moms, it’s exciting to affect social and political change based on that,” she said. “A lot of folks know me as an entrepreneur and as the founder of Camp Bow Wow. But along with a passion for dogs, I have a passion for our country, and for preserving our kids’ future.

Ganahl said she started researching and building the idea for Moms Fight Back two years ago, and she is officially launching her new digital platform and grassroots initiatives on October 22 of this year.

The platform will offer support to moms in addressing issues such as bullying, sexual assault, child abuse and childhood obesity. The site will focus in depth on a different topic each quarter. For the last quarter of this year, Moms Fight Back is tackling school safety.
