Episode 95: Pregnancy Announcement + Maternity Leave Checklist For Entrepreneurs

Danielle Desir Pregnancy Announcement

I have big news to share. We are expecting our first child! Over the last few months, so much has been going on. Not only have I been adjusting to life as an expecting mother, but also life as a new entrepreneur (I quit my corporate job September 2021). In this episode, I share my maternity leave checklist as well as helpful maternity leave planning tips for entrepreneurs.

As we prepare for the arrival of Baby K, I’m re-evaluating my financial priorities and setting intentions for what 2022 will look like which will likely include reduced work hours, family travel/exploration, and adjusting to life as a new work-at-home mommy.
