When I started working from home four years ago, I didn’t have too many reference or resource materials. I was blessed to find and work with great mentors but when it came to reading about how real moms and women managed working with kids in tow, I really didn’t have a LOT.
Naturally, four years later, I wanted to share what I’d learnt and hence, How to be a Work-at-Home Mom was born.
Today, I’m thrilled to see that there are more moms sharing insights on how to make this seemingly new way of working really work for one’s own self and one’s family.
When regular reader of The Mom Writes and my Twitter friend, Anne Bogel of The Modern Mrs. Darcy asked me if I’d like to read Work Shift, I was delighted and wanted to share it instantly with all of you.
Here’s why I thought this eBook will be a great read for every working woman:
Blend is the Buzzword
What struck me right from the start is that Anne doesn’t talk about balancing or even, juggling. In fact, she talks about blending. Blending work, life and family so that all three coexist peacefully.
She writes, “We threw work/life balance out the window. We aimed to blend them instead of balancing them, and we were nothing if not surprised at how well it worked for our family. We love this holistic blend, and we’re never going back.”
The eBook while offering insights into Anne’s story as well tips on how she and her family have managed to create a ‘holistic’ blend goes on to the most significant part – insights and inputs by 30 women who’ve blended their work with different stages and seasons of life.
Learning from Those Who’ve Walked the Path
I place a LOT of stress on real-life examples and experiences. Nothing can prepare you for what life throws at you. However, knowing what others have done in situations, like yours, help you come up with solutions and ideas that work.
Work Shift does this beautifully. Anne has included inputs from over 30 women who’ve talked about how they’ve blended their work with their lives and families at different stages.
From moms who’ve used traditional share care to moms who’re working part time in their pre-baby work fields to women who’re not married or don’t have kids yet to moms who’re breastfeeding to moms with teenagers living under their roof, you will find out how each one of these amazing women blends her work with her family.
You can learn how these women coped with the different seasons of their lives to create a work-life blend that helped them not only work successfully but raise a happy family.
You will learn that while it isn’t easy, it can be done.
You will learn how to add more work to your schedule without adding to child care.
You will learn how to overcome barriers such as a husband who might not be on board with blending work with family.
Yes, Work Shift will help you to make your ‘work’ work for you.
