Occupation: Media Entrepreneur; former President of Entertainment at Telemundo
"I think becoming a mom made be better in the office. I started working smarter instead of harder. My priorities became clear in all parts of my life. Instead of wasting time on silly things, or getting upset over things that really were nothing, motherhood made me have a more 'get it done' attitude in all parts of my life. It also made me lean more into entrepreneurship and into creating my own business because I wanted the flexibility that entrepreneurship could bring.
"I think when you have a child, you start thinking creatively about how to make it all happen and work, and that kind of thinking makes you a better employee or a better entrepreneur. Having something greater than yourself as your guiding light makes you clear, focused and more successful."
