“Throw me to the wolves, and I’ll come back leading the pack.”
Are you hustling every day by balancing Zoom meetings and spreadsheets with meals, laundry & groceries while pregnant or nurturing a baby?
No sweat, we’ve got your back. Get inspired by these lovely members of the same club who show how to carry off style as well as substance while being mothers:
1. Falguni Nayar - Founder & CEO Nykaa
How many women would leave their cushy job as MD of a global bank to chase their dreams?
Falguni gave up her career and started her own business at the age of 51. Her passion also convinced her daughter Adwaita to quit her corporate job and join her mother in the rollercoaster ride of entrepreneurship. Their leap of faith, Nykaa, now valued at over 4 billion dollars, has redefined the future of beauty retail in India.
This Mother-Daughter duo is a true inspiration to us all and shows the power of grit and determination.
“I wanted to stand for those women who want to be beautiful for themselves, not for men or other women!” is Falguni’s inspiration.
2. Ekta Kapoor - Television Czarina & Creative Director, Balaji Telefilms
She is single-handedly responsible for making the careers of many Indian television & film personalities as well as creating pathbreaking entertainment for a billion-plus Indians.
Ekta began working at the age of 17 and today has already been involved in most aspects of television and film production, including production and post-production, domestic and international distribution, and music and home entertainment.
The boss lady remains unfazed about being a single mother and says that becoming a mother has not only changed her life but has also given it more balance.
After welcoming her son Ravie at home she took some time off but resumed work soon thereafter. Since she spends a considerable amount of time at work, she had a creche set up for her son so that she can spend time with him during her breaks.
3. Kylie Jenner - Owner of Kylie Cosmetics
What do you get when you mix a media personality with a socialite, model & a businesswoman? Take a bow, Kylie!
She has done it all, right from starring in a reality series, creating a line of clothing to launching her own cosmetics company (while releasing a role-playing app that reached number 1 on the Apple Store). And did we mention that she became the youngest billionaire?
Kylie shows us how to make your baby bump look chic at fashion shows.
4.Neha Dhupia - Owner, Big Girl Production & Podcast Host of NoFilter Neha
We know her as an actor, a wife and a mother but she is also an entrepreneur, content creator and a podcast host. She has kept herself relevant for more than 2 decades in the cutthroat world of entertainment and currently playing the role of ACP Catherine Alwarez during her second pregnancy & taking care of her daughter and other business commitments.
Her secret is working closely with a team and delegating work. Her podcast NoFilterNeha has featured some of the biggest Bollywood celebrities & she is one of the judges on MTV Roadies
She understands Mommy Guilt of working women but says that “It is not possible to raise a child without the means and so we have to go to work.”
5.Serena Willaims - Winner of 27 Grand Slams & Genius Investor
Not satisfied with being a Tennis Sensation, Serena has gone on to make a name for herself in the world of business as well. She has her own line of clothing and accessories, S by Serena and is also an entrepreneur and investor.
Serena understands the challenges that working women across the world face. Her focus is on prioritizing time and being realistic about her business goals.
“If anything (after becoming a mom) I have more fire in my belly… I work just as hard, if not harder actually.”
Mometernity understands that Mommy bosses need something comfortable, in their budget that can be reused later. Our dresses, tops, tunics, kurtas and kaftans look can be worn for meetings yet at the same time they accommodate your growing baby bump and have nursing access for feeding the baby.
Never forget, “You can juggle motherhood while running a business and be great at both.”
