How Motherhood prepared me for entrepreneurship… 

Well, that’s easy! 

I survive on little sleep, no food and on pure faith that someday somehow this will all pay off. 

Having a kid is like birthing a business. It happens accidentally, You have doubts but you have bought into the fairy tale, you think you have a plan. 

you cover all the X’s and O’s,  you buy all the books, google the crap outta of it and figure ok I got this… 

Well getting it is the least of your worries, growing it, raising it, structuring it and nourishing it enough that it will someday be automated… I mean an independent human that will work, live and survive on its own!
