Show Notes

PT 3: Jennifer Harper is a mom of two and the founder and CEO of Cheekbone Beauty, a digitally-native, sustainable cosmetics company with a mission to empower Indigenous youth through education and representation. 

This is the final of three mini episodes of our conversation, which took place in September.

THINGS WE TALK ABOUT:

  • What she wishes someone would have told her before becoming a parent and business owner
  • Healing yourself before becoming a parent, to the best of your ability
  • Why she believes children are not as resilient as we've been told they are
  • Unlearning and relearning things as a parent and a business owner
  • The importance of structure while also seeing things from others' perspectives
  • What the 7th Generation Principle means to her 
  • The kind of world she would like her children and future generations to inherit

Thanks to Jennifer for taking the time to speak with me about all things parenthood, business and leaving a legacy for future generations.

ABOUT MIXING BABIES AND BUSINESS™
I believe parenthood and professional development doesn’t have to be mutually exclusive.

As a social impact movement and community, I'm focused on producing parent-friendly professional development, digital resources and more inclusive and flexible work solutions for primary caregivers.

This podcast is the result of my journey over the past five years bringing my kids into business settings, hosting parent-friendly professional development events and during these times, it's my creative attempt to continue connecting you with industry leaders and guest experts who also happen to be parents.

Mini episodes are released on Tuesday and Friday covering all things entrepreneurship, flexible and remote work with kids.

Thanks for listening and sharing with your network of parents!
