“If you want to change the world, go home, and love your family.”
Mom, Mommy, Mama, Mah, Mother Dearest, Mama Bear. Whatever name you call her, we honor the mothers in our lives this weekend.
So first and foremost, I want to wish all the moms a relaxing weekend. We have MANY moms in the MCFA network of partners, clients and employees, and I know first-hand how much you all juggle for your families and work teams. We appreciate all you do.
And in honor of Mother’s Day, I challenge you to reflect on the best qualities of the mothers in your life and TELL THEM! Trust me. The heartfelt reflection will go a lot further than the $6 Hallmark card. Whether it’s empathy, a get things done attitude, a never quit perseverance, or a juggling act of priorities – day in and day out, mothers are the best teachers of leaders. Why?
Because they lead with love. Sometimes it’s tough love, and sometimes it’s a hurry out the house love. Sometimes it’s a screaming love, and sometimes it’s a fresh-baked cookies love. Sometimes it’s cheerleader love, and sometimes it’s the hug you need love.
Like every great leader, moms know that every kid and every circumstance requires a different kind of love.
Happy Mother’s Day, Moms!
BJ Kraemer, President
