I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Mom Corps YOU. I received a free trial to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Being a working mother comes with challenges and a stigma in itself. Whether you work outside the home or are a work-at-home mom like myself, either professional direction you choose comes with its own unique challenges that can be difficult to navigate through on our own. There’s a work-life balance that’s hard to achieve in any situation. That’s when having a resource like Mom Corps YOU becomes invaluable.
For myself, I quit working outside the home for the most part once I had kids, though I always envisioned getting back out there one of these days. Alas, for now this is my office. A desk next to my bed. Some days it’s the couch, others the kitchen table. However you bring an income into your family, though, it’s never simple. Working from home, it’s easy to feel like I’m not giving my kids enough attention or the house easily turns into an erupted mess volcano. Guilt for doing one thing when I should be working on another is a normal feeling.
What I really love about Mom Corps YOU more than anything is that I immediately feel like I’m not alone. Looking for work-life balance tips? There’s a scheduled event that tackles just that. The #1 tip, by the way, is that there is no balance. About to get back out in the wild world of the work force and need help with your resume? There was a 3-step workshop for that, too. I can’t even tell you how long it’s been since I’ve updated a resume, so sign me up!
There are also an abundance of insightful resources and tools gathered inside Mom Corps YOU, each specifically suited for working moms. There’s a forum as well, where you can talk and ask questions with others in your situation, whatever your situation. Because when it comes down to it, we’re all just trying to do the best we can, however we can. Of course, it’s always nice to have an encouraging pat on the back along the way.
