Ep.19: The Realities of Running a Business and Being a Mom with Sacha Priolo
In today’s fast-paced world, many women are defying traditional norms and successfully balancing the roles of a businesswoman and a mom. They are entrepreneurs who not only nurture their families but also build thriving businesses.
In today’s podcast episode we delve into the inspiring story of Sacha Priolo, a passionate businesswoman and mom who has gracefully navigated the challenges of entrepreneurship while raising her little girl (and now pregnant with her second child). She owns an online shop called the Cool Mom Vibes which she started this past year.
Sacha’s Journey: Flexibility and Adaptability
At the heart of Sacha’s journey lies the importance of flexibility and adaptability. As the owner of an apparel and mom goodies store, she has learned to adjust her priorities and pivot her business strategy based on the season of life she finds herself in.
Previously working remotely and dividing her time among various responsibilities, Sacha realized that to truly give her business the attention it deserved, she needed to adapt her approach.
Overcoming Hesitations: Just Get Started, Even if It’s Messy
One valuable piece of advice Sacha shares with aspiring entrepreneurs and moms is to embrace imperfection and take that first step, even if it feels messy. Starting a business or side hustle can be intimidating, especially when juggling the responsibilities of motherhood. However, she encourages women not to let themselves get stuck in the planning stage or succumb to self-doubt. Instead, she emphasizes the importance of embracing the process and learning along the way.
As a mom, it’s easy to feel like we are dropping the ball in one area of our life if/when we have multiple responsibilities. That is why balance can seem impossible as Sacha shared. That is why it’s important to remember that balance is a feeling and based on what you currently need right now in your life.
The Rewards of Balancing Business and Motherhood
While entrepreneurship can be demanding, Sacha highlights the rewards and fulfillment it brings when successfully integrated with motherhood. Building a business not only allows her to pursue her passions but also serves as an example for her children. Through her journey, she shows them the value of determination, hard work, and the ability to adapt to different circumstances.
