Every year on Mother’s Day, we give thanks to the strong women that birthed us, raised us, and taught us everything we know. Whether we were raised by our mami, abuela, or a tia, we reflect on how these strong women have molded us into the person we are today.
These strong women that have majorly influenced our lives with their wisdom. Our madres weren’t necessarily CEOs of fortune 500 companies and yet we have been able to take their words and apply them to our professional lives, helping us become successful in our own right.
Personally, my mami has single-handedly been my greatest influence on how I have maneuvered my life. Both personally and professionally. My mom helped prepare me for so many life lessons even though I may not have known it at the time.
With Mother’s Day approaching, I asked a few Latinx movers and shakers what the greatest lesson that their moms taught them was and how they used that to succeed in their career.
