NYC Mamas – you may have seen the gorgeous children’s clothing line Egg Baby by Susan Lazar – its sold all over! This week we are excited to feature on the Beyond Mom Monday Interviews – entrepreneur, Mom and style maven Susan Lazar herself. Find out what Susan turns to when searching for balance and connectivity in her busy life.
What makes you a Beyond Mom?
Being a career woman and a Mom takes a lot of juggling and organization. So the “Beyond” part means being “extra” on top of balancing it all.
What are the parts of you that have grown and expanded since becoming a Mom?
My capacity to love and to give has expanded beyond anything I could have imagined – also my patience and the wonder of it all!
Can you share a collaboration/success story with another woman; what helped the collaboration become successful?
Most recently Egg by Susan Lazar recently collaborated with Irina Krupnik to raise money and awareness for the Happy Baby Foundation. We did an event at Dylan’s Candy Shop in NYC – it was lot of fun and we raised money and awareness too.
What relationships help you stay connected to yourself?
The Beyond Mom Mixers for one! I was so inspired at the last event with Randi Zinn and Patricia Moreno speaking on “what I want”- and clarifying what that is from a point of view of self-love. I love speaking with other career moms to learn and figure out anything I may be struggling with at the moment. I practice yoga and meditation and exercise regularly- that help me stay connected.
Do you have a ‘Beyond’ dream that you are pursuing? If so, please share…
I would love to be able to travel the world more with my daughter- figuring out a way to balance career with that would be great!
What wellness activity can you not live without? What is one thing you do daily that balances you?
I drink green juice that fights acidity daily and that keeps me healthy. I have some daily mantras that I read as well as a gratitude list – all in my IPhone for easy accessibility on subway to work!
How does style influence the way you stay feeling ‘Beyond’? Who is currently your favorite designer?
I believe inner beauty, confidence and happiness are the things that make up great style. When you feel good inside it reflects on the outside with a beautiful grace and style. I have many favorite designers and it changes a lot but I love Helmut Lang and Alexander Wang.
