Westport, CT, September 28, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- October 1-6, 2007, The Momference--A Meeting of the Moms promises to redefine mother's day to a weeklong celebration of all stages of motherhood. Starting October 1, moms across the country and beyond have the rare opportunity to spend time focused on their hopes, their dreams and their personal lives--all without needing to leave the house.
Momference -- A Meeting of the Moms provides a week's worth of inspiration, education and celebration where moms can learn more about the fabulous speakers and hot topic presentations that will come to them via the web and the telephone. Registration is still open at www.Momference.com.
With support from with Blue Suit Mom, Jobs and Moms, MomCorps, Work It, Mom!, ConnectingMoms.com, the Academy for Parent Coaching, Hybrid Mom magazine and other sponsors, Momference producer Mike Jaffe, professional coach and founder of Jaffe Life Design, designed Momference--A Meeting of the Moms to bring 30+ high-caliber speakers, authors and experts on the many facets of motherhood today directly to moms via telephone, online webinar and downloadable audio clips. Jaffe, a father and husband, knows through his research and work with women (and his wife) that most mothers today wish they had more time for themselves. But between caring for children, careers, parents, communities and home, there's precious little time for personal growth and discovery.
The answer? Momference- Six days of presentations by authors and experts who know that moms come from different backgrounds and varying circumstances.
"Momference is about helping moms design and live the life they want on their terms," says founder Mike Jaffe. Jaffe is a professional coach who knows first-hand that life is a gift and every day counts. On September 11, 2001 his desk on the 96th floor of the North Tower at the World Trade Center was hit by a jet plane. Because he had decided to make an opportunity for himself and have a rare breakfast with his family that morning, Mike was still in the subway at the time of the disaster.
Reinventing himself after that life-altering event, Mike founded Jaffe Life Design as a Human WakeUp Call ™ to alert people to the potential their lives possess. Momference is part of Mike's vision of creating life-changing experiences for others and bringing empowerment and possibility to their lives.
To address the many aspects that can encompass motherhood today, Momference participants can choose to join talks and panel discussions on any or all of five tracks: Work & Career, Home & Environment, Relationships, Parenting, and Self Care & Wellness - plus additional special programming including singing sessions, author readings and comedy breaks by a nationally recognized comedian.

Jaffe Life Design, LLC (www.jaffelifedesign.com) is a professional coaching and consulting company based on the premise that life is a gift and every day counts. Company founder, Mike Jaffe, formed Jaffe Life Design, LLC after spending more than 15 years as a Marketer in various capacities, from Fortune 500 firms to internet startups to consulting. In 2001, an airplane crashed into his desk where he worked on the 96th floor of the North Tower of the World Trade Center. However, he was still in the subway en route to his office after deciding the day before to go into work a few minutes late that day so he could have breakfast with his family (for a change). A few years later, arising from the many important lessons and distinctions Mike learned from that horrible event, Jaffe Life Design was born, dedicated to helping men and women create possibility and abundance in their lives.
