Why You Can’t Build Your Dreams With Someone Else’s Blueprint w/ Ingrid Read

The working mom and business owner life is hard! Managing your family, work and your dreams is not for the faint at heart. It can be exhausting, discouraging, and sometimes lonely. However, the reward is often worth the sacrifice. 

Show Notes

When you get into a rhythm and find a way to feel fulfilled and content not only as a mother but a woman also; that is a phenomenal feeling.

However, you can’t build your dream off of someone else’s blueprint. You have to find what works for you in life and go for it.

In this episode rewind, I sat down with Ingrid Read, Founder/CEO of Working MomKind to discuss life as a working mom as well as the reasons she started the Working MomKind community, not only for herself but moms just like her. Ingrid and I discussed the importance of documenting the motherhood experience, how empowering moms needs to be an everyday activity as well as what it takes to thrive as a working mom.

Ingrid shares:

  • The ever-evolving role of mothers
  • The importance of finding a community to support you as a mother
  • How to navigate the many roles in your life
  • The importance of finding your own lane and doing what works for you
