Raising kids and raising bees while running your own company can’t be easy peasy lemon squeezy. Despite the happy hum of honey-making pollinators, Maude has her moments of doubt, questioning herself and career choices — moments with which we’re all familiar. Luckily, she has supportive kids who remember what she taught them: to be themselves, not what others think they should be. Thus, whenever she’s feeling down, her 12-year-old daughter reminds her of one of their favorite quotes by Oscar Wilde, “Be yourself; everyone else is taken.”
“Every morning, I wake with the vision to create a world where people, plants and pollinators can live in harmony. I try my best to do that for myself and my family. I try to share what I have learned with others, because they also see the challenges that we as humans will have to face if there are no pollinators left.” ~Maude Stephany
