LAST year we celebrated moms who, throughout the pandemic, became Masters Of Multitasking as they took on the role of homeschooling helpers, while bringing their jobs home and helping their companies pivot during COVID-19. This year we’re back in business — with Moms who Mean Business, highlighting women who have continued to master their craft in the office, while not missing a beat in leading their charges on the home front.
These women have made the transition seamlessly, and epitomise the quote, “Working moms keep calm and do literally everything”.
We asked them, “How do you ensure that you mean business, and grow your career, while also embracing the challenges and joys that come with raising well-adjusted little ones?”

Parenting has been the hardest job I have ever loved. I’ve had some good days and some really challenging ones while I tried to balance my corporate responsibilities and ambitions with the necessary nurturing that all of my children need.
I always try to honour those unconditional aspects of work and family life, and I try to keep true to them, no matter what. I have found that my true balance lies within the three goals I have set for my children: I want them to be healthy, happy, and focused on becoming positive contributors to our community and the society, at large.
While actively engaged in the parenting of my sons and daughter, I could not have done it without the support system of friends and family. Every Mother’s Day I reflect on the indescribable joy of the journey, knowing that I have found a way to manage my own expectations and lead my children with love.
