Welcome to momma MBA’s Blog

This Blog will one day represent the sum total of knowledge attained while pursuing my MBA in Marketing. You can expect me to share the PEAKS and VALLEYS of this process in an equitable fashion…along the way.

I should tell you straight away that my life was transformed a little over 2 years ago when I became a Mother. I began placing my sons needs before mine & was instictively mindful of his future… well before his precious eyes met mine for the first time. You may be wondering… What does being a Mother have with to do with pursuing her MBA? The answer is… e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g! (singing…ABCDEDFG…in the background!)

I endured over 3 years of unecessary commentary from individuals who went out of their way to tell me that motherhood would mean that some of my aspirations must be sacrificed. That I would HAVE to choose between nurturing my son & focusing on advancing myself professionally via securing my MBA. To say that I disagreed strongly with their point of view doesn’t quite capture the sentiment. Suffice it to say that I did finally choose- and I chose to ignore the narrowest of foresight & be both Mother & future MBA. I believe that by wearing these distinctive hats and by living fully in each, I am ultimately a more balanced, resonant individual/momma/Professional.

The “momma MBA�? philosophy is straight forward- embrace only that which will compell you to advance… for me, this means embracing my son & my books!

With that said, I welcome you to the world of momma MBA! Momma MBA all the way! (fade out…1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9…10! YAY!)

Coretta means
