I’m an independent businesswoman who doesn’t need a man to raise a child – now I can start a family whenever I want

A career-driven businesswoman has spoken openly about the decision to freeze her eggs so she can start a family of her own whenever she chooses.

Amela Smailbegovic is a highly successful real estate magnate and entrepreneur operating across the United States who “never depended on a man for anything.”

The 37-year-old fled what was then Yugoslavia in 1994 as a brutal civil war broke out that eventually led to the creation of five separate countries including her native Croatia.

Amela’s parents – father Dubravko Smailbegovic, 68, and mother Alma Smailbegovic, 67 – arrived in the United States wearing only the clothes they wore and taught her the importance of being independent after moving out of the Nothing rebuilt.

Amela, a female top executive at a world-renowned timeshare company that has annual revenues of $30-40 million, credits this upbringing with giving her the courage to succeed in life on her own.

Speaking to Jam Prime, she said: “I think my main mantra has always been women’s empowerment and women’s success in business.

“I’m one of the few women in my position because it’s always been held by men.

“You have to fight extra hard for your vote and your place.

“Maybe that’s why I’m 37, unmarried and settled down, because all this time I’ve been focused on establishing myself.

“All my houses are paid off. All my cars are paid off. Businesses that are doing great. I have never been dependent on a man for anything and never will be. That was kind of my main drive.”

Amela, who lives in Orlando, Florida, had always given up until she was 39 to have a child.

Many of her friends have already settled down and had children, and she now feels she’s done enough “ground work” to comfortably have a family.

But the currently single entrepreneur has revealed that it will happen whether she finds her dream man or not.

“I’ve always said I’ll have a kid by 39, so I’ve got two years,” she explained.

“When I was young I was so focused on being successful and independent that until recently I never realized the biological clock was ticking.

“Even as a young girl, I was never one of those girls who couldn’t wait to get married, settle down and have children.

“I deviate from the societal norms they impose on us and would rather have a loyal, healthy partnership.

“I couldn’t wait to uproot my career and establish myself. I couldn’t wait to have my own business – that was my driving force.

“It’s just my trait – wanting to do a lot, but it took time [the] Time and you kind of go on autopilot.”

It was only during the pandemic that she realized how badly she wanted to be a mother.

“I turned around and I was like, ‘Oh my god, how am I [in my] late 30’s. So I did IVF (in June and October),” she said.

Initially, she planned to have a child on her own, which would not have been a problem because she has a good support system with “my parents and amazing friends – many of whom have children of their own.

“But marriage or not, I prefer my child to have a great father and male role model, which is why I’ve held back.”

While ideally she would want her child to have a father, if she doesn’t find Mr. Right, Amela will move on.
