The Balancing Act of Business Ownership and Motherhood

My fashion career started in retail, while attending the Fashion Institute of Technology. From my first job as Retail Coordinator for Roberto Cavalli to my last position as a Sales Rep for Alexander McQueen, I was always the one to volunteer to anything because I wanted to soak it all in. I was prepared for the challenges of business ownership, thanks to the advice of mentors that helped me navigate various business opportunities for women.

When it comes to being a mother, I was NOT prepared. You hear that “having a child changes you” but I didn't know just how much of an impact motherhood would have on me. The birth of Gaia, my eldest daughter totally changed my priorities. I want to be the example for both my children. Show them that it’s never too late to follow your passion, and to empower yourself. Having my own business for the ladies, I often remind the girls that sometimes mommy can’t make it for a school trip or pick them up from school because mommy is hustling--hustling for herself, for them and to help in supporting our lifestyle.

The Balancing act of business ownership and mother hood is a challenge. More importantly, i want to show the girls that it takes a lot of sacrifice to go after your dreams. Theory of Gaia very much exists as a result of my wish to empower other ladies to go out there, dare to go after that goal all while looking good at the same time. Life is a balancing act and our clothes should support and empower us.
