When we think of our Mothers, there are many words that come to mind: Selfless, courageous, brave, compassionate, nurturing, giving, patient, caring, and the list goes on. The unconditional love and support that we receive from our mother is truly unmatched. Being a mother is one of the toughest, yet most rewarding jobs in this world.
As we celebrate Mother’s Day this year, we honor, recognize and thank the strong women that have made the ultimate sacrifice to bring new life into this world. Mother’s day is a time to reflect on all that our mothers have done for us, and how they’ve shaped us into who we are today. Through every pivotal moment in our lives, they have been there to cheer us on, offer words of wisdom, and encourage us to follow our dreams.
A mother is the best role model a young girl can look up to, and follow in the footsteps of.From the moment we were born, our mothers have guided us every step of the way, and led by example to teach us to be the independent, successful, bad-ass women leaders that we are.
Fierce + Regal’s founders, Margi Gad and Kassia Davis, reflect on how their mother’s, and how being a mother, has influenced who they are, and how they’ve gotten to where they are today.
“My mom is the woman who has inspired me to fiercely chase my dreams, especially when I decided to join Margi as co-founder and CEO of Fierce + Regal. My mom showed me what it takes to work hard and build a family, all with a sense of purpose and passion. I am a strong woman because I was raised by a strong woman who never gave up on what she wanted in life. This Mother’s Day I want her to know how much I love her, and how proud I am that she is the woman who raised me.”
“My mother is the woman who has taught me the true meaning of strength, which is defined in so many ways - one being fierce and another being regal. As a mother of three, my goal has always been to share with my children the many different qualities of strength and grace. Over the years, I continue to learn from my children, as much as they have learned from me. One of my favorite mantras is my youngest daughter’s newest saying, "You do you, Mom!" I would love to share this gift of receiving invaluable advice from your children with all mothers.” -Margi
