“How Extremely Busy Executives Make Time To Be Great Parents”, With Josephine Geraci and Dr. Ely Weinschneider

Get rid of all excess materialistic stuff! Keep things as clutter-free and as simple as possible. One of the best things we did for our family was to downsize our home. Life became so much more simple and we honestly spend more time together in our smaller, cozier home.

As a part of my series about “How extremely busy executives make time to be great parents” I had the pleasure to interview Josephine Geraci. Josephine Geraci is the CEO and Founder of My Mom Knows Best, Inc., a certified Women-Owned Business. She caught the entrepreneur bug at the mere age of ten taking over her big brother’s paper route. Josephine lives and breathes entrepreneurship. She not only created a product called gLovies but she was the first to market multipurpose disposable gloves for kids. Josephine has a passion to help children with sensory issues be included and not excluded from school activities through her gLovies product. Art teachers rave that they actually get to teach longer and clean up less because of gLovies. Through many years of working on Wall Street and her degrees from St. John’s University, BS in Finance and an MBA in Marketing, Josephine has robust experience from which to draw on. Josephine has conquered every aspect of running a product based business from Marketing, Sales, Finance, Accounting and everything else in-between. Josephine is dedicated to supporting fellow entrepreneurs by helping them get word out about their companies through her successful podcast, Paying It Forward with Josephine Geraci — Entrepreneurs Helping Entrepreneurs. She is currently on the board of SCWBEC (Suffolk County Women’s Business Economic Coalition) where she helps inspire the members by sharing her business lessons learned. Josephine is an alumni of the Tory Burch & Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business Program as well as the NYC Goods and Services Mentorship Program. Josephine learned a lot about teamwork growing up in a household with ten siblings. She is married with three children and lives in Cold Spring Harbor, New York.
