Let’s be real, starting or growing your family should be a time of celebration, but unfortunately, family and business don’t always mix well in America.
Have you ever announced your pregnancy at work only to have people ask you “Will you still be able to do your job?” Or maybe had people tell you that your maternity leave (if you had any) was a vacation! Last time I check, recovering from either major surgery or birthing another life is no vacation. It’s a vital transition period to learn how to read the signals of this new alien creature you let into your home that requires nourishment, cuddles, sleep, and fresh diapers at any moment. Calling it a “vacation” is a way to demean the very necessary time parents and caregivers need to spend with their new, precious, and fragile bundle. Foundational time? Yes. Vacation? No.
Fed up with being punished for being a mom and wanting to work in a way that supports people instead of tearing them down, Kat used her skills as a SCRUM Master, film producer, and financial advisor and business coach to create Mariposa Mastermind, a company she was looking for when she was a new mom.
It is her mission to support, empower, and create a safe community of women and for women as they transition into becoming a working mama.
Whether you’re looking for guidance, support, a little inspiration, or a safe space to just be, Kat’s got your back. Don’t let the pressures of being a working mom get you down. It’s hard, she knows, but there is so much more still inside you, it’s time to be wholly and unapologetically you.
Our Company Philosophies
A lot of companies have inspired Kat, but when it came to a company being open about its values and its action, Patagonia is it. The way businesses work can be reimagined and it doesn’t have to be “business as usual.” Here are the guiding principles we do our best to live by and we’re proud to share them with you.
– Be there for one another. As parents, we get how tough it can be to try to juggle everything. Our private, virtual group is available 24/7. It is a safe space for members and staff to lend an ear, a virtual shoulder, or a helping hand whenever you need it. It is also a space to just enjoy and celebrate the micro moments and major life events with others going through similar experiences.
– Amplify your voice. Stop underestimating the power of your voice. We’re here to champion you, to encourage you to stand up for what you believe in, whether that’s advocating for yourself, your children, your family, or your community. Our aim is to remind our members that they can use their voices to draw attention to causes and issues they care about, including their own.
–Rejuvinate. Change is the only constant in life, and it is not always easy to keep up. When life gets overwhelming, which it will, we want to remind our members that taking a break, setting boundaries, going on a vacation, doing what you need to go to rebalance yourself is important. Pour into your cup first. As a business, we actively look for ways to reduce our environmental stresses and put aside a portion of our profits to go toward our Keystone Projects, which support environmental and keystone species restoration. We want our communities to be better for us being here. And we know you do too.
– Give back. We are here to make a difference. It is our pledge that at least $1 from every sale goes toward our Keystone Projects. To us, “keystone” represents elements that are critical to keeping an ecosystem balanced.
