Veronica Boccinfuso doesn’t let her children stop her from pursuing her dream of owning a family business.
In fact, the mom of a three-year-old son and five-month-old daughter embraces the challenge of balancing family, entrepreneurship and volunteerism.
“I have been an entrepreneur since a very young age, [and] I knew I always [wanted] to be a stay-at-home mom, so we created something that fits our lifestyle,” says Boccinfuso of the home inspection company she runs with her husband Adam.
Armed with a business degree, Veronica tackles all the behind-the-scenes tasks required for the business, including marketing, bookkeeping and maintaining a website, and she still finds time to volunteer on the Better Business Bureau board of directors and network with other local business owners.
Adam does the inspections and helps out at home as much as possible.
He is awed by his wife’s growth in all areas of her life since becoming a mom and opening the business and impressed by her ability to balance motherhood and business ownership.
“She is a fantastic mom, [and] I couldn’t ask for a better partner in business and in my life,” he says. “She 100 per cent achieves whatever she puts her mind to.”
