Hi, Working Mom! And yes, I’m capitalizing the “W” and the “M” in Working Mom because you are that important.
Thanks so much for stopping to read my website. I know how busy you are (reads: I’m a mama of three, puppy of one, own a house and a business, and am happily married — I get it!!) so I won’t waste your time and energy.
I like to only dish out the good stuff. Why? Because I want to help!!
It’s bothersome that you are working so hard yet you keep coming up short. Do you feel the pain from the wage gap? We’re getting paid 81% of men’s earnings according to the U.S. Department of Labor. This study says the reason why the progress toward gender equality has stalled is because men can work longer hours than us. Well, of course, they can! There are many studies that prove you still do most of the housework and child care giving (but you don’t need a study to know that).
How are you suppose to work longer hours when you have a second shift to rush off to?
The answer, for now, is you need to do your very best with the time you’ve got both at work and at home. No pressure, right? How you do this is up to you but wouldn’t it be awesome if you had someone to help you figure things out?
How to Put Me In Your Corner to Cheer You On
I am a Working Mom coach. What does this mean? I am a combination of a career coach and a life coach because your lifestyle deals with both. I consider myself a work/life sway strategist who can teach you how to sway well between work and life. Balance is bull$hit! Swaying takes some pressure off of your shoulders and I can teach you how.
I am a Career Coach at The Maven Clinic which is a women-only digital health clinic. They provide a video conference app we can use to talk for 10, 30, or 60 minutes about the challenges you’re facing. Click here to get a free 10-minute session if you’re looking for help on any of your working motherhood challenges. I’m available most weeknights after your kids go to sleep! If you’ve never experienced coaching before I can vouch for how it can change your perspective and even your life. I loved being coached so much it made me change my career plans (read more about that here)!
