Growing up in Retail: Life as a Lawyer and a Mum

Growing up in Retail: Life as a Lawyer and a Mum

I am excited to announce that I have been featured as the Member of the Month on the Leaders & Lattes website!

Leaders and Lattes are an inclusive networking group of like-minded businesswomen who are committed to connecting and collaborating with each other for both support and to inspire success. I have attended a number of their events in the past and I am always looking forward to their next event – it is always wonderful to meet others who are passionate about their fields.

Here’s an excerpt of my feature:

Diamonds are a girls’ best friend.

This is a phrase that I am sure we all know, but what you may not know is that there is a second part to that saying, courtesy of my grandmother:

“…so that you can cry all the way to bank”.

I now believe that what my grandmother wanted to instil in me was the importance of developing into a strong, independent woman who can not only buy her own diamonds, but can also be financially independent, allowing me the freedom to follow the love and passions that drive me.

This has certainly contributed where I find myself today – a wife, a mother (of one, plus one on the way), a lawyer, a business owner and a slight shopaholic/retail-fanatic professional…
