ABOUT MIXING BABIES AND BUSINESS™
Hi, I’m Amy Lynch and I believe parenthood and professional development don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
People have families and they want to invest in themselves. I’ve created a community that welcomes primary caregivers AND their children to talk about business in a safe and welcoming space (snacks and toys included!)
As a social impact movement and community, I’m focused on producing parent-friendly professional development, digital resources and more inclusive and flexible work solutions for primary caregivers.
Spend time with the ones you love, while investing in yourself.
Can’t make it but still want to stay in the loop!?!
I get it, life happens. Access parent-friendly business events, experiences, inspiration and resources here: https://mixingbabiesandbusiness.com/
