One of the only aspects of a traditional job that some of my girlfriends have that I envy is a proper maternity leave.

*A version of this post is published on Elephant Journal. I would be so grateful if you gave it a read & comment if it resonates with you!

I’ve been wanting to share on this topic for a while because, I believe, especially as women entrepreneurs, we need to normalize money talk. We need to celebrate our financial wins.
