Kent mom of 5 shares challenges, success of starting a business

A year after Lacey Jones was interviewed for KING 5’s “Working Moms: Burnout or Balance” series, she shares updates on being an entrepreneur.

Kent, Wash. — A year ago, KING 5 interviewed a number of working mothers about the challenges they face. The series “Working Moms: Burnout or Balance” covered a number of topics including the prevalence of burnout working mothers, the pay gap, mental health and starting a new business.

A mother of five from Kent has shared her choice to give up a six-figure sales job to start her own business.

Lacey Jones said it’s important to her to strike a work-life balance not only for herself but also for her family.

While working from home in her previous job during the COVID-19 pandemic, Jones said she realized how much her children needed her. She wants to be there for them.

One year since the KING 5 series aired, her business, Lacey Jones Coaching, is turning one year old.

“It’s good,” Jones said. “I think it’s good for my son, my husband, and our whole family.”

Jones said it was important for her five sons to see what she could achieve and how successful the whole family could be.

Working with other mothers is one of the main focuses of her practice.

“To see hope restored,” Jones said, “It’s wonderful.”

Jones also weekly podcast launch where she interviews other mothers about their experiences. She is also launching a digital magazine with the hope of a print version soon.
