On March 19, 2021, almost one year after Papa died, Mom walked away from her 17-year career at UW-La Crosse to bet on herself.
We’re excited to watch mom be her own boss and work from home on a regular basis, as she jumps into the world of self-employment and entrepreneurship! Mom says Papa (and Nana) would be cheering her on as she chose family and freedom, because as Brittney Packnett Buckingham says, it’s time to “build a dream life instead of a dream job. Ain’t no way [our] ancestors only wanted [us] to dream of labor. Ain’t no way.”
