No one works harder than a mom period.
"When I became a mother, I felt like I was competing against entrepreneurs with more resources and fewer responsibilities. I wanted to be a mom & businesswomen but had no idea how it was even possible to do both. I never imagined this determination for owning my own business and passion for helping people would get me this far. Now, all I want to do is see other moms turn their business into a profitable & sustainable company and claim their CEO status as I did. As a 2-time immigrant and refugee who came from nothing, I now live rich in support in all areas of my life. Entrepreneurship can do that and more ". - Anna Sinclair Founder & CEO -Total Mom Inc

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that
we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that
most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?"

WHY WE EXIST
I saw a huge gap in what was offered to moms on a holistic level and felt that as moms, we are mostly sold to and more or less left out when it comes to getting our needs met. So I disrupted this space and rewrote the rules of how things were done in the so-called "mommy space". I felt a little undersupported when it came to actually keeping up with my mom's duties and running a business. I created and accessed support systems in my life and eventually, I led a team and this company to turn the focus back to mom becuase I believe as women, we deserve to be in alignment with our needs so we can have all but not have to do it all. As a woman, I strive to be successful, but it’s not enough to have money or a position of power, I am dedicated to standing for moms globally through my voice, this company and through this platform.I want to show moms that they can turn their business into a company and be the CEO of their brand ".
