Every other week, we do a short profile of someone who has been successful creating a career out of doing what they love. We call it The Inspirationals and we hope they will inspire you too!
Why do we love Randi Zinn?
Aside from being one of our former mang’Oh teachers, Randi has created an inspirational community for NYC mothers. Her company, Beyond Mom, organizes mixers, events and retreats for forward-thinking New York Moms, allowing them to embrace motherhood while also celebrating the “non-Mom” side of themselves. She also profiles inspirational Moms on her blog, which always gives us a boost of inspiration when we’re a little low on confidence.
How was Randi inspired to start Beyond Mom?
Randi saw a need to connect brilliant, driven Moms who were trying to discover the balance between their “pre-Mom” selves and the new self they found after having a baby. By creating a place where Moms can champion one another, she hopes that women will have the courage to find real balance and joy in the many facets of being a Mom.
Quotable: Randi on being a Mom as well as an entrepreneur…
“I think it’s the new feminist movement. We can’t have it all- at least every single day – but I think we can experience it all, maybe different days of the week. ” (from her interview with BodyConnection)
How would we describe Randi in one word?
Connector. Randi’s talent is bringing together like-minded women who wouldn’t have met otherwise. Being a connector is both a passion and a business model for Randi – this is something we can truly relate to, since it is one of the reasons we started mang’Oh!
You can connect with Randi on her website, on Twitter @RandiZinn or on instagram @randizinn
