Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The transition from being a stay home mom into the business world had multiple challenges, starting with monetizing my time and talent after years on highly rewarding, but unpaid volunteer work. Just as important was understanding the investment to develop my creative and business skill set, but the most critical one, was trusting my creative process.
From conversations with other entrepreneurs and the help of business coaching, I developed a system in accordance with my values and skills. My advice for other women wanting to return to work after taking time off is to try to stay involved with their professional interests, and to keep a thread between work and time off – the comeback will be much smoother.

Do you have a lesson or advice you’d like to share with young women just starting out?
Make learning new things a habit. Staying up to date with your industry trends is key.
Nourish your hobbies, sports, and other personal interests – don’t focus solely on work. I strongly believe these are essential in keeping one’s heart and soul alive.
