While on a flight home from visiting my mom for mother’s day, I had some time to reflect about how I was born to be a marketer. It’s in my blood, literally! After filling my childhood with memories of crafts and creativity, my mom went back to work in the marketing department of a bank. She recently retired after a successful career in meeting/event planning and marketing. It was wonderful to see her so happy and relaxed after all the blood, sweat, tears and entire being that she put into her career. This is after all, written for all the marketing moms out there—dads, you will get your turn next month.
Here is to all the moms and moms-to-be in my life and yours, many of whom are marketers, whether by career or by nature! Being a mom, aunt, step-mom, etc. gives a unique perspective to any marketing program, especially since moms are often the major caregivers and decision makers in their households.
Happy mother days to all of the Moms in my life, especially my Mom! Thank you for holding the world on your shoulders all the while with smiles on your faces.
