From Corporate to Mompreneur: How to Make the Leap with Courage

From Corporate to Mompreneur: How to Make the Leap with Courage

I had a chance to chat with MomFriend, Kate Walker, who is the single mom of two boys and a thought leader in the Human Resources space. She has worked in HR for over two decades, starting as a temp, and recently decided to step away from corporate 18 months ago to build her own business. She's passionate about helping people be happy at work and believes there is always room for improvement in team dynamics and leadership behaviors. Check out this episode where we share the highs and the lows as mompreneurs and our commitment to setting great examples for our children.

"I feel like I need a certification or two to show people - to illustrate - that I know what I'm doing and I've been trained."

"I decided that I really was hoping for and wanting to build more flexibility into my world and honestly opportunity to potentially make more money."

"I think if you are a service provider of any background and feel like you can help someone, then you should do that."
