Spending time with my children is critical to the development of their self-worth. Children’s worldview is so narrow: they know home, school, and family. As they age, the horizon expands and they begin to understand that there is so much more to life. But, when they’re young, the pie only has a few pieces. While I can’t control what happens at school, I can control the home environment. If I can create a home life that feels safe, my children will have a solid foundation from which they can take risks and learn and grow. After they have tried new things, they will want to talk about their experience with someone. I want them to know that the stories and experiences they share with me matter; they matter to me because they matter to them.

As a part of my series about “How extremely busy executives make time to be great parents” I had the pleasure to interview Anne Shoemaker. Anne Shoemaker is an executive in the commercial real estate development industry and a wife and mom to two children. In an effort to support and elevate women as they progress in their career, Anne launched a coaching and consulting business that is focused on helping career women overcome limiting beliefs, develop courage and confidence, and succeed in compensation conversations in the workplace. https://anneshoemaker.com
