MOTHERHOOD OR/AND BUSINESS
I have been just having already few business meetings with Carlito and since many people were asking “How are you Zlata” I decided to describe my so called working days.
I think that “business mother” is kind of phenomenon nowadays since there is such low parenthood support that if there is not father which earn for whole family and even more that nearly every mother has to go and work. I speak about part time, some full time if somebody else is taking care of their kids and most of the moms is having online businesses or if it is possible then is having work in which can include also her family and babies.
And you know how I do that? How can be managed all together. The fact that I was afraid of moving to Prague, I mean internally anxious, was because I was afraid of loosing my connection to the business world. I love to be with my kids at home……..but my brain can not just simply stop and just be thinking only of what to cook, what should I clean first today (kids nose or dishes…..), what should I buy to be able to cook tomorrow……and so on and so on. Rat race…….brain is on hold just screensaver is on.
So in the end what happened is real and nice natural mixure, or creature if you want. I mixed two natural phenomenons into one and look what I created
So just to describe you a bit what is beeing happening and how you can deal with this combine status for inspiration:
I look like mule with business face, because I used to have front kangaroo career, I am pushing trolley and Carlito is being either in one or the another, depends on his laud decision (understand crying :)), while arriving on the meeting I have simple decision what to drink…..please water (cause after passing hundreds of stairs in metro, walking on the street and pushing trolley, same as going in and out from trams) I am thirsty as mule and then after deep breath in and out I take my business bag with infromational leeflets together with my boob out if needed to calm down baby and prevent him to talk, we start our business mtg. With smile and little bit of easy mind set I forget that I am breastfeeding mom and i focus on business. I am fast, persuadive and smiling. After we shake the hands and business is done. LOOKS SIMPLE ISN’t IT? After we talk a bit about our life and imagine usually kids help me as great icebreaker and door opener.
And that is how the life of business mom goes. Really it is just about mind set, nothing more. If you think that YOU CAN DO IT, YOU CAN. If you think that this is NO WAY it will stay that way.
IT IS JUST ALL ABOUT US :)!
I MEAN ABOUT YOU!
