*Quick Note – For those of you who may have noticed, Financially Blonde, has been MIA for the past week because it was hacked. It is back with a new look, and I am working on posts for next week to share the full story as well as how you can prevent what happened to me from happening to you, but I just wanted to let you know where I have been. I promise to be back in full force next week with a great lineup of content and a new podcast on Friday.
Working Moms and Margaritas
With Mother’s Day coming up this Sunday, I thought it would be fun to feature a working mom dialogue on my podcast today. For those of you who don’t know, I was raised by a working mom, and wrote a post about her on my blog. I still have no idea how my mom raised five kids and worked two and sometimes three jobs at a time. I learned the value of hard work from watching her, and I will always be thankful for that lesson.
On the podcast today, I am talking to my working mom friend, Cat Alford, who is a successful solopreneuer, freelance writer, blog founder/owner (Budget Blonde and Red Debted Stepchild) and mom of 1-year old twins (AKA the Beans). I thought it would be fun to talk to Cat because we are at different stages of working mommyhood, with different jobs and we were both actually raised by working moms.
I would just like to note that even though this is a conversation between two working moms, I tip my hat to all moms out there today, this Sunday and everyday. Motherhood is the hardest job you will ever love and whether you are a stay at home or a working mom, we all need to support each other. Hilary Clinton said years back that it “takes a village” to raise a child and she is right, but the village needs to start with a supportive network of other moms.
So to all you moms and future moms out there, I salute you, I support you and I appreciate all that you do to raise caring, compassionate and wonderful children. Happy Mother’s Day!!!!
