What’s your definition of a “Working Mom”? Is it simply being employed or running a business while being a mom? What about the work of simply being a mom? Employed or not, all moms WORK.
..which is why we think its time to retire the hashtag #workingmom. In this installment of Amber Energy we talk all about this subject and we’re joined by a special guest, Disha Pegu of Atarim, a website project delivery system based in London! This episode is a little ‘preview’ to the upcoming presentation Amber will be doing at the Atarim Digital Agency Summit next week on April 27th.
This episode is a candid conversation about what it is to be a mom and how much work it is by itself, not to mention if you have a job or run a business at the same time. We talk gender equality, family and office dynamics, and offer solid advice on how to balance being a mom (or dad) while also following your career and business dreams.
“There’s some moms out there that, deep down, really deep down wish they had a job or…maybe they passed up an opportunity or got offered a promotion but they didn’t because they felt guilty because then their kids wouldnt be with them 24/7. There’s a lot of guilt around that that we still have and we guilt women into that.”
