What is your business and where can we find it?

New Moon Girl Media, an early champion of girl-centered media, is the creator of the award-winning New Moon Girls magazine and the groundbreaking social network www.NewMoon.com for girls 8-12.  New Moon Girl Media is committed to providing girls with innovative, advertisement-free spaces where they can create, explore and grow.  New Moon Girl Media and its publications produce original, high-quality content made by girls and selected for publication by their peers. 

Is it mom-owned, invented, created . . .?

New Moon Girl Media was founded in 1992 by girls’ development expert Nancy Gruver and her twin 11-year-old daughters, Mavis and Nia.

A little about your entrepreneur journey so far?

Being an entrepreneur is hard work, unpredictable and very consuming.  It’s also fun and extremely rewarding.  I learn new things every single day – even after nearly 17 years!  When I founded New Moon, I knew nothing about publishing.  But I had previously started a different small business – a gallery.  The first business lasted 4 years and taught me a lot that helped me to make New Moon a success 11 years later.  There are things about being an entrepreneur that you can only learn by doing them.  So if you have the bug, jump in and give it a try!

Where else can people find you?

I really need this site because I have two girls age 7 and 10 There are lots of times when I would like them to have computer time but I am too busy to supervise them I would feel safer if they were on this site because a moderator would be monitoring the chats
