Introduction to our SuperMoms

“Any mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease.” – Lisa Alther

We were lucky enough to be able to interview some tech-savvy working moms, and get their input around time management, coping skills and the impact of technology in their lives. We will be sharing their insights and tips over the next few weeks, but in the meantime we would like to introduce you to these amazing women.

Sarah is a technology communications specialist with over a decade’s worth of experience in her field. She ran the IT focused PR agency, Sentient Communications, after which she joined South African social network, Mxit, as the VP of Communications. After two years as an employee Sarah realised that she was much happier being her own boss so in late 2013 she joined Batstone. ( Another busy, creative working mom, Sarah juggles managing her company with looking after her two children and we hope that she can share some of  the skills she picked up in the world of technology with us.

Tanya left Living and Loving magazine a few years ago to strike out on her own, and what a success she has made of it. Blogger, editor, runner, mother  to a five year old and winner of the best parenting blog in Africa for Rattle & Mom.
We are hoping to get some ‘momspiration’ from Tanya and hear how she juggles her vibrant career with the demands of motherhood and the stresses of modern life.

You can look forward to these SuperMoms’ stories over the next few weeks, and if you have any tips on managing being a career woman and Mom, please share that knowledge with us on our Xander Apps Facebook page or on twitter using our #XanderMoms hashtag.
