How to Integrate Work and Child Care, with Chriselle Lim of Bumo
Chriselle Lim built a fashion empire--replete with a YouTube channel boasting over 29 million views, a collection at Nordstrom that sold out in 48 hours, and a Barbie modeled after her. But after becoming a mother, she realized how hard it was to be present both at work and as a parent. Now, she's the co-founder of Bumo, a startup working to make parenting easier.
