It's been said many times that small businesses are the backbone of communities.

But starting a small business can be challenging. That's where a group called Entrepreneurship for All comes in. It's a free program held twice a year to provide training and support for those wishing to start a business.

Jennifer Potter swears by "E-For-All." Potter is a mother of three young children who had an idea about starting her own business. Thanks to the training and support provided by E-for-All plus her own motivation, Potter began "Mamas and Babysitters" in 2019.

Her business provides fully-vetted and CPR-trained babysitters and tutors to area families. Jennifer currently has 13 employees and sees expansion in her future.

She joined Townsquare Sunday this week to talk about her business, the E-for-All program, and her wish to help families. Potter's interview can be heard here:
