24: How to Navigate the Emotions of IVF While Running a Business with Ekin Ozlen

Don’t you just love powerful women?

I do, and so does my inspiring guest in this episode. We’re hearing from a mom-to-be about her emotional IVF journey and what it was like to go through it as a business owner.

Ekin Ozlen is sharing her experience with IVF, the struggle, the emotions, the technicalities, and how she did it all while running a successful business.

Ekin’s story will inspire you to continue on your journey, find your balance, and hang on to your passion on your mompreneur journey.

Ekin is an entrepreneur, singer, and owner of the luxury beauty brand Keracell from Los Angeles. She was previously a model for Ford Model Agency, and she’s now a mother-to-be.


In Today’s Episode We Discuss:


  • Myths surrounding infertility
  • Going through fertility treatment
  • Accepting your journey and taking responsibility
  • What it’s like for men going through fertility struggles
  • Remembering that hard times will pass
  • Running a business while struggling emotionally
  • That Instagram doesn’t tell the whole story
  • Surviving as a new brand during the pandemic
  • Navigating business and family
  • The brilliance of women

I don’t think it’s possible to hear Ekin’s story and not be inspired. She’s been through so much, but you can tell how strong she is just by listening to her. If you are struggling with fertility issues or have in the past, her story is sure to resonate with you.

If you’ve never struggled with your fertility but love hearing from women in business and mothers-to-be who are crushing it, I hope you enjoy this episode too!
