Are you a mom struggling with the dilemma of whether to continue working after childbirth or take a break from your career to bring up children? Meet Fernanda Splitter, a successful real estate entrepreneur and a mother with two little kids, handling both responsibilities with great enthusiasm.
An MBA in marketing and economics, Fernanda Splitter is a former US model who has performed at top fashion events, such as the NY Fashion Week and LA Fashion Week, and has won the titles of Miss Los Angeles 2015 and Miss USA Brazil Los Angeles. Nowadays, she divides her time looking after her two little ones and running a stellar business of real estate investment, construction, interior design, sales, and home vacations.
Look After Your Children – and Yourself!
Fernanda says that new mothers often end up neglecting their health and fitness while being focused on providing the best for their children. By her second pregnancy, she had gained 60 pounds, which began slowing her down. She took it as a challenge and committed herself to intermittent fasting and running to lose all the excess pounds, and successfully restored her fitness as well as confidence levels.
Choose a Post-Motherhood Career that Fits Your Lifestyle
According to Fernanda, moms do not necessarily have to give up their careers if they feel overwhelmed with the prospect of managing a demanding job while devoting sufficient time to care for their children. In her own case, Fernanda chose to pursue her passion of turning homes beautiful, which she knew she could do while spending time with her kids.
When Fernanda and her husband purchased a home in Malibu, she knew she had found the answer for her post-motherhood career. Fernanda started working with properties and took up interior designing projects, and soon turned her passion into a profitable profession. She says, “Real estate business offers me the independence to create my own schedule and work at my own pace. I have found it the perfect fit for my lifestyle.”
Build a Thriving Partnership with Your Husband
While you are juggling between the pursuit of your passions and the duties of motherhood, do not neglect your relationship with your spouse, advises Fernanda. She recommends: “Invest time to make your partner understand your professional calling, and enlist his support for managing the household and the kids’ responsibilities.” An egalitarian household where children receive equal time, attention, and care from both parents is a home where everyone prospers, Fernanda Splitter concludes.
