"My best has to be enough because that’s all I have to give.”
"Being ok with the fact that I’m going to work and invest a lot of time in my career, but still be a great mom has been a learning curve. I want my children to grow up with the same strong woman in their life that I had in mine."
"A lot of moms make the decision to freelance because it allows more flexibility and time to juggle being a parent. To that I say find support and find a community. And, let me connect you to all the people!"
“The hardest thing about being a working mother is mom guilt. I feel guilty that I’m not making the cupcakes for a school event. But I also feel guilty if I’m not at the store running my business."
“As a working mom and business owner I get to tailor my day. That drove me towards opening my own space. Nobody can tell me no about bringing my kid with me. And my space is always accessible for other people's kids.”
"Ownership is one of the toughest lessons I've learned as an entrepreneur and leader. Ownership in relying on only my own skills, knowledge, and intuition. Even more importantly, ownership of my mistakes. We all make them, the sooner we can address them, the better for everyone."
"For me, the toughest thing I have been learning is how to have the confidence in myself to begin new adventures, and to gain the courage to step out of my shell and be uncomfortable for a bit in order to achieve what I want, and to do what I'm passionate about, trusting the process and having faith that things will come about and manifest when they are supposed to."
"We are taught from a young age to tear down other women instead of building them up, but it makes it so much harder for us to have success that way. I've carried that spirit into my own work and my interactions with my friends daughters, my younger sister, and the young women in my life. We are better working together and empowering each other to be strong, brave, and true to our convictions."
