Patience and Forgiveness: Skills for Work and Parenting with Katya Libin

We know there are lots of people out there managing parenthood and careers, made all the more complex by the current landscape influenced by COVID-19. In this special episode, Agatha interviews the co-founder and CEO of HeyMama, Katya Libin, as she discusses the mission behind HeyMama, and the ways in which being a parent and entrepreneur have helped inform each other. HeyMama aims to help mothers in the workforce connect, collaborate and learn from one another. Katya reflects upon her role as mother and CEO, and how managing company culture is surprisingly similar to creating an atmosphere in the home that is guiding and supportive to children. Integral to that is the presence of ritual and gratitude, values Bambini Furtuna holds dear to the heart! (Keep an eye out for future collaborations between these two!)
