Mother of two can also be a successful entrepreneur

I had the pleasure of attending the opening ceremony of the #Moms4Moms fellowship program organised by Hong Kong Momtrepreneurs this morning. It was a truly beautiful event, dedicated to welcoming and supporting a new cohort of women as they take a step towards realising their dreams. Among the many inspiring moments, Joanna Hotung’s sharing of her entrepreneurial journey while raising two wonderful children struck a chord with me.

A serial entrepreneur and a mother of two, Joanna is the role model to many momtrepreneurs

Joanna emphasised the importance of involving our children in our pursuits. She encouraged us to discuss our day-to-day experiences with them and seek their opinions, as even the smallest things they say can ignite new ideas. This sentiment resonated deeply with me, as my children are at the heart of everything I do. Whether it was the decision to leave a secure job and start my own venture, the daily operational choices, the challenging moments of winding down my business, or even seeking their assistance with my academic assignments while pursuing my Master’s degree, they have been there with me every step of the way.

Among audiences, we had a 5 toddlers that day and a Spider-Man.

This approach has provided us with countless shared experiences, strengthened our bond, and allowed me to demonstrate the limitless possibilities they can achieve.

I believe that by embracing our aspirations and involving our children, we can inspire and empower them to pursue their own dreams while cherishing the beautiful journey of motherhood. Does this resonate with any of you? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments. Let’s continue this conversation and support one another in our shared experiences.

Thank-you Lena Wong for continuing to inspire meaningful conversation around this, for supporting diversity and for being truly inclusive in your approach. More power to you.
