Click Here for My Power Mom Story: ✍
After my son, Jordon, was born, I felt that all-to-common push/pull between my corporate work and being there for my new baby. So, when he was about 18 months old, I made the brave move of starting my own business, Flint Stone Media, as my answer to that age-old motherhood conundrum. And, as a single mom, I would quickly learn that being a newly-minted entrepreneur is not for the faint of heart. But, this HAD to be my answer, because my corporate path had never really worked for me.
Well, I realized after a few years of already being in the entrepreneurial trenches that my son had given me the determination that lit the fire under my butt for every meeting, every late night, and every reach for the dream. The constant task of having to balance everything, having to constantly think outside the box to make ends meet, to keep going and working when I felt the most defeated, how I tapped into resources to make things happen; etc etc… ALL of those parenthood superpowers were showing up in my business.
So. I KNEW that I could pair my longtime business background with my newfound motherhood skills and build something BIG with my business, give myself the independence I have always craved, and leave a legacy for my son. I pulled together all of my grit and fortitude from being a single mom and having to do ALL the things and poured it into building a podcasting company I could be proud of and use to help support OTHER people’s dreams.
And that makes ME a Power Mom!!
