For Mother’s Day, we interviewed our founder, Kirsten Karchmer, about the intersection of motherhood and entrepreneurship. She opened up about the challenges and rewards of being a mother and an entrepreneur and shared advice based on her experiences.
Here is an excerpt from our Brazen Conversation:
“I think there are a lot of stereotypes about motherhood and not enough good ones. There are stereotypes that mothers are boring or nags. But the reality is that a mother can do almost anything because she has to. She has to be able to juggle a zillion things at the same time to get anything done, and she can do that gracefully. And with a smile on her face most of the time. She can accomplish superhuman amounts of things. All with children hanging off her, crying and shitting on her.
An early-stage entrepreneur has to do the same thing. They're not necessarily skilled at every single job that has to happen inside of their company but they have to quickly learn. They have to multi-task to be able to squeeze out an amazing product that impacts and helps people in a profound way.”
We hope you enjoy our conversation with Kirsten and have a nice Mother’s Day. We’re sending love to all the mothers, people who have lost their mothers, people who have lost their children, and people struggling to conceive.
