Success looks different to everyone. For some, it’s dependent on the level of entrepreneurial success that you’ve garnered and the visible opulence within your life – whether it be in personal fame or finances. For others, their lives are simply defined by the quality of people around them – both in the families that they’re born into, and even more, in the families who they create. For us though, we don’t see these things as being exclusive to one another. Behind every diligent worker is a long list of figures whose loyalty, love and commitment to seeing greatness blossom, has served as a source of motivation for some of the world’s greatest leaders. And as any affluent person will tell you, success means nothing if you don’t have the right people around you to share it with.
The Valley alone is bountiful in business trailblazers, enthusiastic entrepreneurs and world-changing leaders, each maintaining no shortage of inspiration. In particular, there’s a refreshing number of “lady bosses” around the state, whose love for life and self-expression translates seamlessly into both their work and personal lives. We had the opportunity to speak with a few of these ladies – i.e. our favorite Arizona “Mompreneurs” – about their business dreams, the importance of family and how each one is helping to shift societal stereotypes by proving that you really can do it all.
