What Did You Learn from Mom?
In celebration of Mother’s Day, let’s share what we learned from our mom.
My mom helped me in the early years of my business. When I published a monthly print newsletter (Caregiving! newsletter, my first product for family caregivers), she proofread every issue, she sat with me as we stamped each subscriber’s issue. She dropped off samples throughout Chicagoland–at hospitals, adult day centers, doctors’ offices. She traveled with me to conferences and helped man our booth, which displayed the newsletter and my books. And, she never took a paycheck.
From my mom, I learned that it’s important to have help because it’s just silly to do it alone.
