To help you start, our design consultant, Dagmar Obert, shares her story about her mom.
BH: What is your favorite memory of your mother?
Dagmar: I loved it when we would just laugh and have fun with my kids when they were little. There is a picture of her holding my daughter Abigail, and that for me is a priceless photo. My mother is also very optimistic. She would always smile at the future despite losing my dad and her husband of 25 years last year.
BH: What important values did she teach you growing up?
D: She taught me the value of laughing at myself and not being afraid to make mistakes. So many people fear failure and taking risks, but I did this often, and my mom still loved me. I think it helped me learn how to calculate the worth of a risk in a systematic way, which is extremely efficient.
BH: How did she influence you to be the person you are today?
D: My mom has always been open to ideas. She gave everyone a voice and always considered their point of view. She gave me every opportunity to express my viewpoints, which could be the reason why I’m not afraid of expressing my thoughts and opinions.
