FHMoms Founder, MK Betulfo specifically targeted the moms from the audience. She tackled the pressure women face as they juggle everything at once. Society demands Pinay moms to be a hands-on mom and an ideal wife while striving for their career. She also discussed the struggle of transitioning into the freelancing industry wherein aspirants experience fears. Then she shared her road to success and how to work on it every single day.
