Speaking to my mum and other non-generation X mums is a huge reassurance. They had none of this brand spanking gadgetry, and I, along with my peers, turned out just fine. Speaking to my midwife. She's pretty good with a no-nonsense approach and will help me suss out the necessities from the marketing BS.
What with my growing bump and all, there's lots of new things I'm figuring out. One is that I can't run around town the way I used to. Another is that with a baby on board, power naps are fast becoming my favourite hobby.
Family businesses can be some of the most successful companies in the world. Just look at Nike whose founder Phil Knight recently stepped down as chairman as his son Travis Knight took a seat on the board in 2016. Walmart is still a family business and L'Oreal is still controlled by the founder's daughter.
We need to coin another definition of success for women in business. A lifestyle business should not be sniffed at, and running a business and a home should be well regarded. After all, the latter is a job in itself.
