The older I get, the more I look at my friends who are parents and business owners with complete and total awe. Not only do I have the pleasure of working alongside some amazing working moms, but my personal and professional life is full of parents who are dreaming big and running their own creative businesses while raising their families. I look to these remarkable parents for inspiration and motivation (I hope to join their ranks one day), but I also look to them for helpful ideas and lessons because they are juggling so many different demands and priorities at the same time. If that old adage, “If you want something done, give it to a busy person,” is true (and I think it is), working parents are some of the most efficient and wise business owners I know.
So today I’m sharing the biggest business lessons and advice from 10 incredible working moms. These women have launched businesses and worked hard to find moments of work/life balance, and we can all learn something from them. Whether you’re balancing life, work and kids or life, work and pets – or just life and work – this advice is a must-read.
