“Your faith in miracles and yourself must be greater than your fears.”

What do you do and what led you to this career?

I am originally from New Zealand and my background is in law. When I moved to Los Angeles about 5 years ago, I had a complete change of heart and followed my true passion — which is inspiring other moms to become the best versions of themselves through health, beauty, fashion, and lifestyle. That's when I decided to create my blog; Madd About Mandy.

What is the most rewarding aspect of being a mother?

Waking up every morning to the purest little smile warms my heart with such joy and contentment. The ability to create life is the most rewarding part of being a mom. I believe you truly start living once you are a mom.

And what is the most challenging?

For me, personally, the most challenging part is balancing work life and motherhood.

What is your best advice for someone new to your industry?

Believe in yourself and you shall succeed. Your faith in miracles and yourself must be greater than your fears.
