COVID-19 has aged people years, with stay at home orders in abundance, many people across the United States have started to contemplate their work life.

Being a mother in and of itself is a huge career that is life long, but we wanted to highlight the moms who not only take their role as a mother seriously but also as a provider building her own career outside of the home. We reached out to women around us who are also girl-bosses and asked them what their thoughts were on being a mother while building up their businesses.
We had to ask what other people had been told that has stuck with them over the years, so we took to Instagram and asked our followers to tell us one thing your mom (or other female figure) taught you in 1-2 sentences.

Throughout history, we have seen many ways in which various cultures express grief. Some through a set number of days in which family members and/or friends wear black, having funeral processions with wailing and villages involved in walking the casket from the point of celebration to where a community member is laid to rest. But as the years passed on some societal norms became irrelevant and outdated, where nowadays it seems that people have a kerfuffle when trying to help console someone who has experienced loss or how to address grief.
