Serena Williams: Badass On The Tennis Court, Supermom At Home

Balancing a fulfilling career and being a great mom isn't an easy balance. It's a goal that society has pressured women into reaching, which is often unrealistic and unfair when the same isn't expected of men (#DoubleStandards). So it's refreshing to see someone like Serena Williams, the 39-year-old world-famous tennis champion, entrepreneur, and activist, smashing life at home as a mom and as a professional athlete on the tennis courts. We love strong, capable women, and Serena ticks all the boxes!

Couple Builds Mini Pub In Backyard And It's Total Goals

One of the most (relatively) devastating effects of Coronavirus has been the closing of all bars and pubs. Although this has been felt everywhere, the British public is understandably one of the most hard-hit nations when it comes to the loss of social drinking. Some are wallowing in their sadness and waiting for the pubs to reopen. But others are taking matters into their own hands and implementing drastic action to get their alcohol fix. One family in Wigan, U.K., hired Octavia Chic to construct a pub in their backyard so they wouldn't have to wait until the lockdown is over. The results are even better than you could imagine, and judging by the pictures Octavia Chic uploaded to their Facebook page (featured below), they're going to get many more orders just like that one!

Mom Creates 'Hiring Board' With Open Positions For Kids To Earn Money

This moms allowance method for her kids is serious mom goals and weren't totally not surprised that it went viral. 

Meet Shaketha Marion McGregor, a single mother of three (Jahkeem, 13, Takeia, 10, and Serinity, 6), who has a unique system when it comes to getting things done around the house! A system in which she creates all the household jobs that are in need of hiring, and lists them as 'open positions'. There's even a resume and interview process!

This mom has thought things through! With a hiring board that's filled with open positions the kids could apply for, they fill out their resumes (including how much they want to be paid for the position), and then have to ace that interview with the boss (aka mom).

This is simply brilliant for so many reasons. Instead of handing out allowance due to constant nagging from her kids, McGregor is insisting life-long lessons in the value of money, and how the real world works. 

In an interview with Today, McGregor shared insight to her process, "One of the things I asked was, 'When can you start?' Serinity said she could start right away and my 13-year-old needed a few days because he wanted to hang out with his friends. She was far more professional."

She also added that Jahkeem, her son, had some excellent and important questions, "He wanted to know if I was taking out taxes and how much."

And her 10-year-old, Takeia, took a different route during the interview process, she spoke with an "exaggerated British accent" during her interview. "I think she thought it made her sound more polished and desirable," McGregor said. "She really thought it would help her."

Honestly, this looks like something all future parents should practice at home and we, personally, wish that we had this invaluable experience when we were growing up. Then, maybe we would've aced a lot more of those resumes and interviews.

All in all, this mom is killing it. You can follow McGregor at This Mom Means Business Inc.
