It is the time of the year to pay special tribute to mothers for their selfless, countless acts of kindness. As the backbone of the family, mom nurses you to health, drives you to tournaments near and far, and loves you unconditionally. Some shine in the spotlight, juggling flourishing careers with family obligations. In honour of Mother’s Day, here’s a retrospective of celebrities and business executives I have interviewed over the years, about their rides.
