Mother’s Day is one of the most important days on the earth but we all know that being a Mom is a lifelong commitment. In a new #blkcreatives podcast coming soon, let us introduce you to Mikki and her journey as a creative while raising her beautiful little girl, Ava. After learning about ‘Raising Ava’, we’re also highlighting a few #blkcreatives who are balancing motherhood and the business of creativity.
Raising Ava: A #blkcreatives Podcast
Silence is deadly when you’re raising a child because every minute could mean something being destroyed. A clean wall, a tube of mascara, your very last nerve–everything is in danger. Now imagine trying to do a logo for a client, a business proposal for your own endeavors, anything creative after you just had to wash liquid makeup off your new comforter. You’re spent, frustrated, and the last thing you want to do is be creative. Then couple that with having a 9-5 that occasionally drains you as well. And dating. And adulting in every other way.
Welcome to my world.
If you can relate, this podcast is for you. I’m Mikki, a social media managing, graphic designing, creative single mama of the most beautiful two year old in the world. Stay tuned for my take on how my parenting and creative worlds collide and everything in between. See you soon 🙂
