- The importance and benefits of having or making friends who are in the same part of your mom-journey

- Working to maximize your time as a working mom working at a busy startup by trying to be a good mom or be a good employee in those moments, even if that time isn’t balanced
- Not worrying about responding to every single email or notification, but still being present and actively engaged in the work to be done
- The importance to regiment your day and time so that every moment is purposeful, and finding a balance for self-care and making sure you’re healthy enough to take care of familial and work obligations
- How being a parent changes your priorities, from stress meaning responding to lots of emails to wanting to pick up your children from work but being stuck in a meeting
- Plus, Carolyn’s #MOMSGOTTHIS moments with her daughter, Penelope!
