How to balance working and being a mom
A working mom might often feel like she’s being stretched
in a million different directions. But there are ways moms
can have a successful career and still be committed to their
family, according to INC.
Be the best employee, especially if children haven’t come
into the picture yet. Show the boss potential by working
longer hours and sacrificing leisure time.
“You will move up quicker, gain more experience and you’ll
feel much better about taking some of the time back when you
do have children,” according to the article.
While deciding on a career, make sure it is family-friendly.
Some careers still haven’t established a culture for working
It’s important for working moms to stick to their standards
and let their standards be known.
“I walk out of this office every day at 5:30, so I’m home
for dinner with my kids, and interestingly, I’ve been doing
that since I had kids,” said Sheryl Sandberg, COO of
Facebook, to Inc.
