A Working Wonder Woman ...
My business is primarily wrapped around women, more so mothers than anything else. The best thing about that is getting another perspective to the variety of mothers there are. There’s the great debate on working moms vs stay at home moms; who does it better and which route works best for the kids and so forth. I guess you could say I’m that third party unbiased perspective on the matter and I’d like to think that sure, I have enough insight to have a good insight, I am after all married to the second greatest mom in the world after my own mom. Wink. Wink.
The way I see it is; if you do your best and put your all into one method or the other then there is no wrong lifestyle at the end of the day. What works for one mother may not work best for another and vice versa. For this photoshoot, I had the pleasure of taking on the working mom of all moms. Brigida Saladin is a working mother that owns not one but four daycares in the Washington Heights area. Two separate daycares within four locations; B & J Wonderland Daycare and Evolving Genius Academy. http://www.bandjwonderlanddaycare.com/
These are not your average daycare, no these are top notch eco-friendly, organically inspired daycares that also offer indoor security surveillance allowing parents to check in on their kids from their cell phones and desktops. Her daycares are the only ones in the city that offer this awesome perk. Organic eating and cleaning supplies with daily outings and teaching curriculums. Let’s be honest, that is great service and perks.
Aside from her Monday to Friday business, she also does some modeling for companies like Rocthalook Boutique clothing line, dabbles in the stock market, and is a single mom raising two beautiful boys, a 3yr old and 9yr old. She puts 120% in all she does and expects her little one to follow suit. She has her 9yr old already reading “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert T. Kiyosaki, how impressive is that?! It’s no surprise that Brigida can do a photoshoot with great confidence and ease. She’s done so well in our photoshoots that she’s done at least 3 with me already. The Saladin’s take school and success as serious as breathing in oxygen. So the next time you feel like you can't do it, whether you’re a stay at home mom or working ongoing hours at the office, don’t forget…
Be Determined, Be Focused, Be YOU!
