An inconvenient truth for most women like myself is that we often have to sacrifice time in order to start our family –time that usually falls smack-dab in the middle of our careers. Do we choose to spend our time doing what we love or be there to experience our children’s “firsts”? The hardest part about this choice is that there is no easy answer–and more importantly, no right answer.
Mommypreneur and PrestaShop Merchant Abby Kellett decided she wanted to take part in her daughters Beatrice and Josephine’s lives, even if it meant leaving her career. This choice allowed Abby to spend time with both her daughters and watch them grow. But Abby soon realized that the enjoyment she got from being a mom couldn’t replace her passion for interior design. So she searched for opportunities that would allow her to be a mother and work in interior design at the same time. The perfect compromise was to launch Gretel Home, an online interior design store, with PrestaShop. Read on to hear all about Abby’s mommypreneur story.
