Maybe it has something to do with being a woman-owned company, but S’well has a lot of love and appreciation for all the strong female figures out there. This Mother’s Day, we’re taking a beat to recognize these wise women who always seem to know what’s best and always have the right thing to say. In honor of all the incomparable women in our lives, #TeamSwell shares the best advice they’ve ever received from their Moms, Grandmothers, Aunts, and the like.
My mom has taught me to be fearless — to love intensely, to give willingly and to adventure far and wide. She also shared with me the power of a firm, confident handshake. Thanks, Mom. Kendra, Corporate Communications
My mom is the strongest person I know. Whenever I shy away from making my voice heard, she encourages me to speak up and ask for what I want, saying, ‘a slap on the wrist you won’t get’, a phrase she learned from her mother. She inspires me to advocate for myself and go out and get what I want. Sarah, Digital Marketing
I guess the best advice my mother told me is not to worry. Worrying will never fix the problem it only makes it bigger. She always told me to pray, let go and stay busy. And to this day, this is what I do. Kimberlye, Ecommerce
Before I went to college, my Grandma told me ‘Be good. And if you can’t be good, be careful.’
To try and fail is better than to never try and regret.
Elina, Web Development
One of the best pieces of advice my grandmother gave me was to ‘not get married till you are at least 30… maybe 40! Take time to be single and get to know yourself.’
The best advice my mom ever gave me was ‘you can’t control other people’s actions, but you can control your reaction.’
I have two quotes that remind me of my mom: one is ’the best thing you can give your children is roots and wings.’ She firmly believed we should go out and choose our own adventure, she was my biggest cheerleader and never talked about the downside of taking risks. The other is ‘be the change you want to see in the world’, as she was a tireless advocate for her favorite causes. She passed away seven years ago but she was the bomb!
