Entrepreneur Imelda Roche AO is a successful businesswoman who founded Nutrimetics in 1968 when three of her children were under the age of five.
Her most valuable advice she picked up from her grandmother (and the person she credits as being her mentor). Her grandmother taught her that she could do whatever she wanted if she was really dedicated and focused enough: “If it’s to be, it’s up to me. It’s not for somebody else to do it for you. You’re in charge of your own life.”
This mantra was also integral in identifying priorities, and determining which domestic responsibilities really matter and which can be outsourced. Roche also advised that women shouldn’t be afraid to pay for help.
“The priority is not doing the cleaning. Just as long as they know that you’re there for the events that are important.”..
