A big hello to all the Working Moms,
My question is about the average career mom has on maintaining a balanced and successful family and work life. Finding that balance isn’t always easy; but we can always do what moms do best - make it all look like a piece of cake!
I am a working mother with two daughters. For more than fifteen years, I have worked as a lawyer taking on many challenges as I aspired to grow professionally. I have to say, of all the challenges I’ve endured in my career, there have been none more stimulating and demanding as raising a kid! That is, other than raising a kid and sustaining a career!
As a career mom, I always feel like I am in a constant battle with my ambition and my conscience as a Mom. I want to be a successful business woman, but a more successful mom. Every day feels like a huge balancing act. Sometimes I feel like a circus act and everyone’s watching to see if I will fall! So, how do I make this all work? How do I find balance in my crazy life as a career mom? I know I am not the only mom feeling this way.
