There’s very little room for resting in entrepreneur Agatha Achindu’s packed schedule. Even when her two younger children have been tucked in bed for a few hours, Achindu is still at it, working on another round of paperwork and food prep that awaits her in the kitchen of her home in Atlanta. As the founder of Yummy Spoonfuls, a line of organic baby food sold in retailers like Whole Foods, sleep is a luxury the 46 year old left behind years ago, thanks to the demands of caring for her sons — Georges (23), Malcolm (15), and Jared-Zane (9) — and running her own business. Although the constant shuffle can be hectic, Achindu believes that the level of sacrifice is worth it.

“The biggest challenge to me is being in a million different places at a million different times because of how I choose to parent,” she says. “Everything is hands on. We don’t do any fast food. We don’t do any processed food. No matter how busy I am, we have to cook. That is my biggest challenge, but at the end of the day I am grateful that I have the opportunity and [the] willpower to do it.” Read complete story on mater mea’s link http://www.matermea.com/#/agatha/4583867159
