Inspirational Quotes

The balancing act of being a parent and running a business is hard work especially when you have young children. So there are bound to be days when everything can be overwhelming and doubts can surface. On days when I’m having trouble seeing the cup half full rather than half empty, I quickly remind myself that all I need is a good dose of motivation and spend a few minutes googling for words of wisdom from now successful women who have previously treaded the same difficult path as me.

As a mother in business, I derive inspiration from all the little things my life can offer me; the sweet kisses I get from my kids as soon as they wake up, the feeling of being connected with nature during my early morning walk with the pram. Even the incoming mail notifications and to-do lists kind of inspire me as it means that I have work to attend. Over the years, I've bookmarked a few quotes that have kept me going when the going has been tough.

While pondering over an idea for my first blog post, it struck me that the best inspiration I could share was my collection of these uplifting quotes. I got in touch with all these amazingly successful women who took the time off from their busy schedules to reply back to me with a few words of encouragement and love; the act itself was inspirational. Hope you too find inspiration in them as I did.
