Have Baby, Will Travel, Speak In Public, Write Books And Run Businesses

Have Baby Will Travel Write Startup Speak In Public | Notes From Another Land | Amy Maureen Lynch

What do these things all have in common?

  • Libraries, Bookshops, Art Galleries, Museums, Cafés and Pubs in Canada, Ireland and England
  • Tech and social impact startup programs and networking events in Canada and England
  • Negotiating flexible work contracts in Canada, asking questions and sitting on a panel during CreativeMornings Ottawa
  • Riding in an airplane, sitting on the tube, overground trains or London city buses

I had my boobs out at all of them and breastfed my kids before/after and often DURING the above experiences.

Yes you can:

  • Search for books, view art, visit exhibitions, order a coffee and socialize at the same time
  • Listen to guest speakers, pitch to strangers and workshop your ideas at the same time
  • Conduct a business meeting, speak in public and stand in front of a crowd at the same time
  • Get where you need to go on public transit and feed your kid, at the same time

If you’re open to being flexible, feeling a bit uncomfortable, sitting (or standing) in the same position for extended periods of time and adapting as you go, I say it’s well worth a try.

When I became a parent, I still liked reading, art, travel, coffee, pints, business, creativity and exploring my neighbourhood.

Doing all of the above has definitely moved me out of my comfort zone and required a bit of trial and error, as well as lots of ups and downs but I now know that I can do it and it’s not up to me if others are uncomfortable.

Because of it all, my kids and I have seen places, art, spaces and had experiences I don’t think I’ll ever tire of reminiscing about.

TLDR: Have baby, will travel/speak in public/write books/run businesses.
