How do you juggle being a business owner and a mom?
It definitely has been a challenge for me. I try to block out time on my schedule for my kids and for my business. I also explain and talk to my children about entrepreneurship so that they can understand my tasks as a business owner.

Spending quality time and laughing with my children.
What is the hardest part about being a mom?
Not being able to be there at every moment, whether it be a conference, game, etc.
What is your least favorite chore?
What is your favorite non-mom activity?
Self-care day — nails, hair, facial, etc.
What is the best piece of advice another mom gave you?
There is no handbook on being a mom. You are doing a great job.
