Power of the Pivot Podcast: Illustrating The Life of a Miserable Mom with Sharon Brecher
On August 5, 2021, Susan Salzman of the Power of the Pivot Podcast featured Sharon Brecher of Miserable Moms on the show.
"They say life starts when you realize you’re living one, but in the case of full-time mom Sharon Brecher, that one cathartic moment in her life that changed everything was when her eldest daughter started to move out for college. Her pent-up emotions and feelings about midlife crisis all the while being a mom gave birth to Miserable Moms, an unfiltered comic relief about moms for moms made by a mom.
In this episode, Sharon talks about her eureka moment in grad school and a newfound interest in using educational software that landed her a job at FutureKids, then Disney Interactive and Disney Online. She also shares how she started Miserable Moms out of emotions, the idea behind each illustration she creates, and her two- to five-year vision and plan following the success of her naturally funny comics."
