Sher-li Torrey, 38 years old and mum of two, is the founder of Mums@Work (Singapore), a social enterprise that helps women find the perfect balance between being a mum and having a career.
Mums@Work, besides being the first business community support for mumpreneurs, also organised Singapore’s first ‘Mumpreneur of the Year Award’ in 2014. They also host monthly meet-ups for mumpreneurs, an online support group, mumpreneur workshops and an annual ‘Mama’s Bazaar’.
Women who inspire her: Sher-li is inspired by Aung Sang Suu Kyi for her patience, tolerance, will to succeed and devotion to her own people from Myanmar.
Sher-li’s own mother’s determination to balance her career and family while never missing her kids’ significant moments, is another source of inspiration for this mumprenuer.
Did you know? Despite the name of her company, Sher-li gets many men writing in asking to be accepted as member-mums. She is also often asked when she's going to set up ‘Dads@Work’!
