Reinventing yourself after becoming a mother

As a journalist, I've always been really aware of what's going on in current events and in the news. Especially I was drawn to stories about the food supply - how toxic it's becoming, how nervous that made me, not only about the foods that my husband and I were eating, but now as a new mother, even more so on behalf of my children. And it's kind of a minefield out there. So navigating foods that I felt comfortable feeding my kids, and where I could find them, and what I could make and so on. So that really became the inspiration behind starting a business. My then best friend and now business partner, Shannon, were going through the same thing, and had children around the same age, and we just decided that we could be part of the solution. It's kind of a classic, that mom aha moment, that you're doing something in your own life, and suddenly the light bulb goes off, and you realize there are probably other people out there who could benefit from this information or this product or whatever. We're really the classic stories of mom-preneurs, the mom entrepreneur.
