Working Moms

As a former "working out of the house mom" I know that the grueling hours, tight schedules, dropping and picking up the children can all be so overwhelming and hard. Whether you are working full time, part time, or out of the house it is so important to have balance in your life. Maintaining a work/life balance is the key to a successful career, I know I did it for years. I turned to family, friends, co-workers and the internet for advice. I wanted to know how other mom's were doing it and how they were doing it successfully.

Whether you are looking for career advice like announcing a pregnancy at work or using social media to get a job, when it comes to working in or out of the house it is important to have resources to turn to. is just that, a way to connect you and employers and it gets you involved in a community of other working moms.

When I was in the working world, I soaked up all of the advice I could from every resource out there. The more I knew the more prepared I felt as my career continued. Returning to work after maternity leave was hard for me, not only leaving my sweet little baby with someone else all day but I was also not prepared for how hard it would be. Nobody can prepare you for motherhood, just like nobody can prepare you to be a working mom but if you seek advice, help and knowledge from others it does get easier. Life is in phases, right now I am in the stay at home mom part of my life but I know that soon enough my children will all be in school and I will again find myself out there in the working world.
