Episode 34: Balancing Being a Mom and an Entrepreneur

In this episode, we are talking about balancing being a mom and an entrepreneur with a fellow Detroit mom, Emily Kay. I loved talking with Emily about her journey about being in the forefront of work on Social media content management to being an entrepreneur and mother of 4. We discuss the positive and negatives of social media and her experience of writing her fiction book.

We are talking about balancing being a mom and an entrepreneur in this episode with my friend Emily, another Detroit mom. This was such an exciting episode to hear Emily’s journey of the early start of social media management and where she ended up. We go over the positive and negative of social media,and safety for your children. We go over how Emily balances her life and work with baby #4 on the way, all while writing a fiction book. This is a great conversation to hear a success story from a mother doing it all, we need more of this to keep inspiring other moms to go after what they love to do.
