Welcome to Perelel Lives, a podcast where we learn about the tireless yet vibrantly challenging role the women we admire most live in parallel to their careers and personal pursuits: becoming and being a mom.
We live in a society that glamorizes and celebrates women‘s careers, the companies they’ve built, and the movements they’ve created. But, what we’ve failed to highlight is a facet of their lives that is far more personal—a side that presents perhaps the hardest, but most rewarding job of all—a job with no PTO, no holiday breaks, no sick days, and no salary. Oh, and it also lasts a lifetime: motherhood. Here, we have real conversations about motherhood. (Not another parenting podcast.)
Which brings us to today's conversation...
As the Chief Brand Officer of Revolve, Raissa Gerona is undoubtedly a force. But today, we sat down to chat about a side of her less known: her journey to becoming a mom. Raissa shares the story of her surprise pregnancy and how she navigated self-doubt and self-identity along the way.
