045 | Baby in the boardroom: Becoming an accidental activist and parentpreneur with Amy Lynch
Show Notes

This bonus episode features the talk I gave for a parentpreneur panel event in October, where each speaker discussed their experiences as a business founder and parent. My oldest kid made a cameo during my Q&A session at the end, which you can watch on Startup Vancouver's YouTube Channel.

THINGS I TALK ABOUT:

  • Bringing my kids into business settings
  • Getting frustrated by a lack of inclusive corporate spaces and programming
  • Learning to ask for help, advocate for my needs and show up as I am
  • Things I didn't know about mixing parenthood and business...until I tried it
  • Producing parent-friendly professional development
  • Questions for event planners, employers and organizations seeking to create more inclusive spaces and programming for parents and their families
  • Ways in which parents can keep advocating for themselves in business
  • Startup Vancouver parentpreneur talks

Thanks for taking the time to listen to my talk about my experiences so far with parenthood entrepreneurship and activism!

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!
