And she talked about how she focuses on harmony in her life and how it plays a big role in her life being a mom and an entrepreneur it helped her a lot to be able to have that “protected time” for her family while having enough time to manage her business well.

“It boils down to taking 100 percent responsibility for where I am, where I'm going and investing any help I need to get there…” at 13:06, Martine and I talked a little bit about her biggest learning lessons throughout her entrepreneurial life and she told me how taking full responsibility on whatever decisions and actions she made taught her to become a better version of herself as a person and as an entrepreneur.
