Nothing inspires me more than a woman who chases her dreams and who works hard for what is best for her and her family.
Publisher and editor Lise Taylor is one of these women. Have you met her yet?
Working in various big name magazines for over 20 years, it wasn’t until she had her son, Duncan, that she decided to start her own magazine.
‘I decided I wanted to be around as much as possible for the first few years of Duncan’s life before he started school,’ Lise said.
‘I wanted to be there while he was little to experience his first steps and all those sweet, but often challenging, growing up stages.
‘But, I also needed to work.’
In 2006, with the help of her husband, Lise started My Child.
My Child has been in quarterly print publications since then and has just this month transitioned to digital only. And get this, the magazines are completely free.
Lise loves her job, but says she’s never worked so hard in her life.
‘We didn’t have enough money behind us when we started and that’s made things tough at times,’ she said.
‘There are new challenges every day, plus to ensure I’m there for Duncan after school, I work into the night.
‘But it really is the best thing I’ve ever done.’
My Child is a beautiful and professionally designed magazine full of dreamy imagery and super cute baby and kids clothes and products.
The content itself is well-written, educational and relatable. I was brought to tears when I read one of my favourite writers, Lauren Matheson’s heart wrenching story of giving birth to twins at just 20 weeks.
My Child is jam packed from beginning to end with goodness, plus did I mention it’s free?
