Doing it alone isn’t something we learned from dad; we learned this from mom.
If dad was physically or emotionally absent, mom picked up the slack. As daughters, we witnessed mom doing errands on her own. Managing the household on her own. Taking us to school, putting us to bed, helping us with homework – on her own.
She evens shoulders the disappointments that we feel when daddy doesn’t keep his promise.
And then, as daughters, we model her.
We learn not to ask men for help. Because we’ve learned, as young girls, that dad will always disappoint us. So, we do things on our own.
We take this into our businesses.
