Why I started Career Mom Community
Hey Mom, Heyy!
My name is Debranetta (Coach D) and I am the founder of Career Mom Community. I am a wife and mom of 4 amazing kids along with a fast pace career in Corporate America. I wear many hats in addition to wife, mom, and career women. Coaching cheerleading (hence the nickname, Coach D), mentoring youth, and volunteering in my community and church are some of my passions. To top it off, I am a foodie and travel enthusiast.
One could describe me as an outgoing, ambitious, and achievement-oriented Millennial!!! Balancing all of this while chasing my career goals can be difficult at times but I am determined to stay committed to all my goals and roles.
Over the past year or so, I started to pay more attention to my career goals and where I’d like to be in 3 years, 5 years, etc. I looked for resources geared towards working moms and much of it did not resonate with me. I was looking for practical tips, everyday strategies, and tools to chart my course for success as a mom and a career woman. I did not want to be convinced to “find your purpose… get out of the rat race… build your own empire”. Don’t get me wrong I’m not knocking entrepreneurship because your personal business and/or brand can absolutely be your career. But the narrative was often so negative towards the marketplace and career building.
Seeing this gap, I started Career Mom Community!
