“The name of the book came from the reality of where we are in society with accepting moms in dual roles of running a successful business and family,”shares co-author Flesché Hesch. “By drawing attention to it, we hope to make the phrase mom entrepreneur obsolete in the future while acknowledging how support systems must change in order to have happy, healthy and thriving families.”
