Tales, Tools & Business Advice From High-Tech Moms

While Mother's Day is a great time to remind us of all the inspiring women in our lives who run successful businesses while simultaneously running a successful household, their stories, tools, and advice on time management and work-life balance can translate to any great leader any time of year.

Computer World reached out to founders and CEOs of successful technology companies who happen to also be moms. As entrepreneurs of technology startup companies as well as moms, their insights into managing their day-to-day lives are full of valuable lessons we can all learn from.

Some top insights:

  • CEO and Co-founder of Eventbrite, Julia Hartz tells how being a mother and a leader has helped her embrace her ability to lead with empathy.
  • COO of CareLuLu, Evgeniya Usmanova shares how her company was inspired by a solution to an everyday problem she encountered as a mom.
  • Founder of The Founding Moms, Jill Salzman reveals how being a mom has helped her learn to focus on important facets of the business and better understand time management since, with children, everything is time-sensitive. 

Our very own Robyn Spoto also shares how her boys inspire her everyday and how she makes it all work by living the set of family values they’ve established at home and role modeling the set of business values we’ve created at work.

Don’t have a work self and a family self. Have a whole self and be yourself in both places. Be the CEO of your life and be your authentic, complete self all of the time.
— Robyn Spoto
