Are you a mom? If so, how do you tackle it all?

Yes, I am a mom, so I can very much relate to all the mothers out there who are up against the challenge of tackling it all. One of the ways I manage to accomplish this is by making my son a part of the process. What do I mean by this? I believe one of the most important aspects of entrepreneurship is “passing the torch” to our kids. If, for example, I have to speak at a conference or attend a book-signing, I’ll often bring my son along and find a way to include him. Since he’s a teenager, he’s more adept at social media than I am, so I often ask him to help me by posting or taking photos on the fly. Also, by including my son in my career, I get the opportunity to teach by example. He sees me in action, and learns first-hand what it means to truly hustle, and what it takes to get things done. In a way, it’s like an in-house internship for him.  

What’s the best advice that you have for a woman trying to start her own business?

One of the most important things to do before starting your own business is to first save one year of salary. Having a year of savings in the bank allows you the freedom to give it your all, to throw yourself into the new endeavor with every cell of your body. I tell women who want to start their own businesses to first get out of debt; to lower their overhead; and to consider starting a business on the side (while they’re still employed and earning income!), and save 100% of that money. We’re so lucky to live in the era of the sharing economy, which provides enormous opportunities for entrepreneurs to not only sell products, market businesses and lower their overhead, but also to work part-time or full-time from home. Why not milk this opportunity as a way to liberate yourself from the burden of simultaneously having to pay your bills and grow your new business?

Are you a mom? If so, how do you tackle it all?

I am not a mom, however my mother set a great example growing up on being able to manage both worlds; parenting and a career. I also admire my sister, who has small children, and tackles it all like a super woman. My mother and sister are my daily reminder that women can be successful in their businesses and still be terrific mothers. 

What’s the best advice that you have for a woman trying to start her own business?

The best advice I can offer is to start with something you have a passion for and understand there will be lots of hard work in the short term for a rewarding pay-off in the long term.
