Parents Taking Control of Their Own Destinies

Mary Kathryn Johnson has a maternity wear range called Mommy Loves, she has Parent Entrepreneur Power a parenting podcast and has written about her journey to parenthood and entrepreneurship.

Mary enjoys helping her teen boys “navigate the world and find their path their passion and their identity.  At the same time, I kinda find mine as well.” 

Mary’s favourite quote:

“It is our choices…that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

Mary faced a seemingly impossible situation with both her legs being in a cast, while having a toddler and being pregnant.  She kept her sense of humour and thought “If I can do this with my sense of humour in tact, I can do anything.”

Mary’s business sense kicked in “I pulled that idea back out and it took me over.  I can only describe it like an obsession, there was no other option, I had to do this…Mommy Loves was born”

With her book writing, Mary decided to “schedule it.  If it wasn’t every single day at least it was every week.”

Mary recommends:
Charity: Keeping Music in Public Schools
App: Rescue Time
Book: Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling
Book: Say Bump and Take a Left by Mary Kathryn Johnson
