I’ve often wondered how some of my favorite female designers got started with their businesses and how they keep their amazing companies running and design ideas flowing when they have small children constantly demanding their attention. I personally struggle everyday with the balance between full-time work, the design process (and reality!) of renovating our home, chronicling it all here on this blog whilst meeting the needs of my small children so I can’t begin to imagine the added stress of being the boss at work on top of it all!! Well now there is a book that can help….
Profiled moms include many of my favorites like blogger Gabrielle Blair (Design Mom), designer Courtney Novogratz, Lorena Siminovich (from Petit Collage) and Christiane Lemieux of DwellStudio, as well as many more. It’s really insightful to see how these women who are hugely successful in their respective fields manage to balance motherhood whilst starting their businesses and the book is choka full of great tips like how to write a business plan and honest advice that should set you off on the right path.
