We get out of bed every day to make the lives of mothers easier – through consulting
engagements, compelling speeches and a fabulous new book (Slay Like a Mother) launching in March 2019.
Katherine Wintsch, Founder & CEO of The Mom Complex
What does a typical day look like for you?
Briefly describe activities that are both professional and personal to give insight into
the work you do and how you get it done, as well as your personality and interests.
My days mostly consist of: making one hell of a to-do list, crossing off as many
accomplishments as I can, sweating my worries out on a yoga mat or during
meditation, hugging on my two adorable children and finishing the day with a
strong vodka tonic.
What inspired you to start your company?
When I first became a mother I was overwhelmed and exhausted while the mothers
around me looked like Kelly Ripa on performance enhancing drugs. I came clean
about the trials and tribulations of motherhood in this TED talk that’s been viewed
around the world and quickly turned the momentum into a high-end consulting
company helping Fortune 500 companies develop consumer-led, retail relevant
innovation for moms. Now we’re looking to scale the company and take it to new heights.
What’s your favorite thing about Virginia?
This can be anything – an activity, a destination, a restaurant, etc.
My handsome husband is the Executive Director. It’s a joy to share the same
workspace and a love for RVA entrepreneurialism.
