I became a mother 7 years ago. At the time I had a demanding job producing animated children’s tv series. Since then I have had an ongoing struggle to find my new life balance. I’ve also discovered that I share a lot of common ground with other women who have kids and a career. We are interested in a lot of the same stuff. We have common problems. We deal with similar issues. We pursue a lot of the same solutions. And we like to share what we’ve seen and learned with women like us.
It is a challenge for most women to find a balance between the professional and personal part of their lives. And it is, for the most part, a uniquely female issue. The conflict that mothers feel when they aren’t spending enough time with their kids because their work demands them, and the conflict that they feel when they have to stay home with a sick child and miss that board meeting is not often experienced by fathers.
This site is dedicated to things that inspire me and help me get my balance. If you would like to contribute to the site with your own discoveries, please share them.
