Being a mom of three I found that juggling work, home and every other aspect of my life was a struggle. At some point I had to put my career on hold to care for my family, but I found that was not exactly what I wanted after a while. I got talking to other moms, and I found there were many of us facing the same frustration, and then I thought there must be a better and easier way to get around juggling it all. After a few years of searching for workable tips and ideas, 'Successful Working Mom' was created.
Successful Working Mom offers simple practical tips and ideas on how working moms, moms in business and work-from-home moms, (WAHM) can improve their performances and succeed at their work, career or business; in their homes and families; and in their personal lives more effectively and with greater ease. It offers tips that are tested and proven to work all the time for today's working mothers.
