:”CEOMom: Delayed, Not Denied.."
This presentation is an explanation of the barriers to entry for black mothers wanting to pursue non-traditional careers in entrepreneurship. I will briefly discuss my journey as a mother and business owners, my challenges, what I learned and how I was able to overcome and help other mothers overcome the fear of moving in purpose while being a mother. I will discuss topics from my book, The Procrastinator's Guide to Purpose, discuss and collect research on identified barriers to success i.e. lack of childcare, mediocre grant funded programs, resource exclusion, etc. We will complete a Purpose planning handout and participants will be given next steps to make sure that their dreams are not Denied. Both mothers and non-mothers are welcome to join.
