the motherhood hustle is better done together.

When did Pom Pom Social start? One year into motherhood (after leaving a long corporate career), I found myself starving for connection with other like-minded women who were also navigating this transition to parenthood. I thought it would be interesting to create a platform where we could share our experiences, learn from each other and make the mum-hustle a little bit less isolated. I invited a bunch of interesting mums I’d come across—some of them I knew, but most of them were strangers—to see what would happen. It became clear pretty quickly that there was an appetite and a need for this type of community, and Pom Pom Social was born. Why did it start? What is its purpose? In today’s society (in the US, in particular), we obsess about the birth and…

Tell us your story from the beginning. Who were you before you went zero waste? I came to the US as an au pair; I’m originally from France. I wanted to experience the American way of life I’d seen on TV: the big house, big car, big refrigerator and all the stuff that comes with all this. After seven years, though, we missed the life we’d known in the cities we’d previously lived in. In London, Amsterdam and Paris we were used to walking and biking everywhere.

Before finding the right house, we rented an apartment for one…

honest reflections

PARENT OPINION #1 / GOING FATHER We grasped onto any scrap of uncertainty we could find. We were trusting a simple blood test, after all. Perhaps this had all been a hilarious mistake? But when we had our first appointment with the obstetrician, there it was: a heartbeat. by luke ryan A week after I found out my wife was pregnant, I realised I was going through a hyper-accelerated version of the seven stages of grief. Shock? Check. Depression? Check. Miscellaneous crying jags? Very much check. At one point, my wife asked me whether I cried this much when I found out I had cancer again. “No,” I replied, perhaps too honestly. Day to day and hour to hour, I’d oscillate between good-natured acceptance and abyss-welcoming collapse. I’d be halfway through a slice…

hey, foundation partners, what’s the biggest lesson you’ve learnt from working in your business ?

PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE Dot Tonkin Publicity + Marketing Director We’ve learnt that making reading fun is the best way to get kids hooked on reading. Whether that’s reading aloud with funny voices, letting kids choose their own books, making a special time or place to read, or gifting books on special occasions—the positive associations can last a lifetime. RAA RAA Lauren Black + Prue Rainey Founders Juggling family certainly tested our resolve, but our most important lesson was staying true to our vision and not letting ourselves be influenced by others. As we’ve grown, whenever we find ourselves drifting, we go back to those core beliefs to make sure RAA RAA Kids remains the brand we first intended. MASUKI STORE Ishak Masukor Founder The biggest lesson I’ve learnt would have to be balancing the intensity of small business with important life…
