image exclusive interview THE Addict 20 ENTREPRENEUR moms YOU’LL LOVE “Once I started to believe in my talents and gifts it was no stopping me.” MMIA: Why did you decide to become an entrepreneur? KE’AUNDRA: Because I hate people telling me what to do! I knew at an early age that I wouldn’t work a regular job and that I was destined for greatness. Once I started to believe in my talents and gifts it was no stopping me. MMIA: Do you ever regret your decision to become a full-time entrepreneur? KE’AUNDRA: No not at all! Even on my worst days I wouldn’t trade it for the world because I’m in the position to do what I love the most which also provides freedom in different forms in addition to be able to touch the souls and minds of people in a way that transforms their lives. MMIA: How do you balance the roles of mommy and entrepreneur? KE’AUNDRA: I don’t, I believe Balance is B.S. I just put my time where it’s needed most and what makes the most sense to become successful in any portion of my life whether it’s family, personal or business. You can’t do everything all at once and something or someone will suffer as a result, I just choose wisely. MMIA: How do your children feel about mommy being an entrepreneur? KE’AUNDRA: My daughter believes it’s the coolest thing ever and aspires to become once as well. She enjoys the perks of being with me all the time, me being available to attend her extracurricular activities and being able to learn how to create her own business. She’s a little hustler already. MMIA: What would you say to the woman who’s reading this right now and doubting her ability to succeed as an entrepreneur mom? KE’AUNDRA: JUST DO IT !!! T here will never be a right time but one thing is for sure, you will be able to create the freedom to enjoy both your family as well as your business which will afford you the resources to run your household how you want to.
