Bestselling author Annie Hardock on seizing opportunities


As an entrepreneur running two successful businesses, she’s always learning and growing. But her most valuable lessons came from striving to be a better parent.

Annie Hardock loves math. It comes easily to her, and she knows why. Once you know the fundamentals, you just have to apply them, she says. Any new problem is solvable when you understand the basics. 

She brings this mindset to her life and her work as well. When the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the in-person math center for kids that she had spent 10 years building, she took her classes online. Not only that, she saw what an incredible opportunity had been created for her to impact more kids. 

While fully acknowledging how devastating the pandemic was and still is, she was literally jumping out of bed with excitement at the idea that now she could reach children all over the world with her programs, not just the kids in the community. “What inspires me to wake up every day and get excited is when I see opportunities. When I see a crisis, I say, ‘Well, what kind of solution can I provide?’ And that’s math—it’s a way of thinking.”

Initially, Annie became an entrepreneur to spend more time with her son. But her first business, a systems-consulting firm, still required her to commute into the city to see clients. She didn’t want to keep missing her son’s milestones, so she knew she had to re-create her situation. So even though it was 1996 and people were still accessing the Internet through their phones, she started an Internet-based business so that she could work from home. Being home with her son also taught her a lot about unconditional love and how important it was for her to manage her own emotions to be an appropriate model for him. 

Annie has much more to share—including how she pulled out of a three-year depression after her divorce—which you can read about in the inspiring new book Moms Who Boss Up Post-Pandemic, by Tam Luc, the author, educator, and podcaster dedicated to helping women “boss up.” The book collects interviews with moms who are side hustlers and multitaskers, who faced the uncertainties of the Covid pandemic—and other obstacles—by embracing their strengths and finding their authentic paths. They have so much to share and to teach, and while every story is unique, there is creativity and perseverance at the core of each one.
