Your Mom! The individual who raised and nurtured you…guided you through the tumultuous process of becoming a beautiful successful adult.To work for her requires all the skills she’s taught you along the way, and then some, to come back to the nest, spread your entrepreneurial wings while keeping your own identity and join the family business.
So, how does one gracefully swing the delicate balance when your dearest Momma is also the Boss?
The first key is easy.
Then remember, your mother is no dumb bunny. She wouldn’t have hired you if she didn’t think you would be an asset and make strong contributions. So prove her right.
If it was all fun, they (she) wouldn’t pay you, so yes there will be times when it won’t be a mutual lovefest. There are keys to dealing with those situations also.
The best thing to do is to remember that this woman’s first instinct is to nurture and nature you. She wants you to succeed as much, if not more, than you do. So take a deep breath, and enjoy the experience that few women get to have – to spend time learning even more from our mothers, and be uld enough to appreciate what she has to say, who she is and all she’s done.
