Playing Small Moment
• Having broken both her legs when she was 8 months pregnant Mary Kathryn launched her first business, Mommy Loves. However when the economy dropped between 2007-2011 Mary Kathryn took it personally, like it was something she had done wrong and that maybe she wasn’t cut out for business.
The Wake Up Call
• Having built her Mommy Loves to be self-sustaining Mary Kathryn focused her attention on raising her children. She came to realize she was successful at raising incredible human beings and running a successful business. It then came to her that she could help other parents do the same. That was the birth of Power Parent’s Academy.
