I’ve always been a mama’s girl. Even though I had a big brother, it was always Mom and me. She was a nurse by trade and hustler by nature; she used both skill sets as an immigrant from the beautiful island of Antigua to make a home for my brother and me on the mean streets of New York City as first-generation Americans.

I credit my success as a professional and businesswoman to the career advice and guidance she gave me over the last two decades.

Here are three of the most memorable gems of wisdom I received from my mom.

New study adds evidence for benefits of starting school later in the morning

  New study adds evidence for benefits of starting school later in the morning New research from Singapore has found that starting school times later in the morning really can improve the sleep and well-being of teenagers. US researchers have previously suggested that starting school later could improve the quantity of shut-eye for the country's sleep-deprived teenagers, which in turn can also help boost health, behavior, and academic performance.

Here are three lessons that I believe are just as valuable in the boardroom as they are on the playground. Raising a Happy and Successful Brand Raising Leaders: I became a manager very early in my career and, while I can honestly say that I led teams to produce great work, I had a lot of work

My mom might not have owned a startup, but she taught me many valuable lessons about leadership that I still carry with me in my day-to-day as a business owner. I always saw her as a real-life Wonder Woman through a child’s eyes then and as the CEO and mompreneur that I am now.

No Job Is Beneath You

I graduated from Oberlin College in May 2011 with a degree in political science and economics, and was still looking for full-time work a year later. When it became clear steady work in my field wasn’t going to be a straightforward process, my mother encouraged me to take what I could find and learn as much as I could from the odd jobs along the way. Within that transition year, I held a number of small jobs, including afterschool teacher, community outreach activist, campaign canvasser and assistant for a flea market vendor. Each of these jobs strengthened my entrepreneurial spirit and showed me the power of interpersonal skills, active listening and in-the-moment problem-solving. Without those jobs, I wouldn’t have had the confidence to build The Frugal Feminista.

But with each passing day, we became more convinced it was the right decision. We constantly felt the tug of travel in our bones, the dull yet persistent ache of wanderlust. And we felt strongly that with everything going on in the world there was no time like the present to live with more intention — especially where our two young children were concerned.

Here are three career lessons that I learned from my mother: 1. Believe in yourself. Two years ago, I was laid off. It was the scariest and most rewarding experience of my life. I was nervous to apply for jobs that I thought were above me , but even more scared to apply for entry-level jobs.

My mom can make the most awkward person in the world feel comfortable, the ugliest person feel pretty, the most boring person feel witty. My mom is the person you want on your side when things get tough. She’ll hold you as you cry, but at the end of the day, she won’t let you back down.

Take Risks

Women are generally socialized to nurture, play small and coy, and wait to be chosen. But my mother, who left Antigua for England when she was 18 to avoid becoming a surrogate mother to her nine younger siblings, taught me the opposite. She would always say, “A closed mouth doesn’t get fed.” As a woman of color in the workforce, I used this principle to advocate for myself, establish my worth and be unapologetic about asking for compensation for the positive impact I made to an organization’s bottom line.

Work as If Someone Is Looking Over Your Shoulder

When she first shared this piece of advice, I thought she wanted me to feel insecure and paranoid about the caliber of my work. But the essence of her advice pushed for the exact opposite. When you work as if someone’s always looking over your shoulder, you create systems, processes, structures and innovations that can withstand external audit and review. In the most optimal of cases, the structures can work without you, freeing up your time to attend to other projects.

Even though I’m now a mother with a business, career and family of my own, I still view my mom as my trusted career coach whose advice has prepared me to design a life that allows me to not only earn well, but also live well.
