Working Moms: Five Tips for Success

1. Remember that a desire for a career does not make you a bad mother, nor does a desire for work/life balance make you a bad employee. 

2. Be proactive and creative. Many supervisors are open to considering creative solutions when they are presented, but will not be so conscious as to offer them unasked. 

3. If you have a partner, ask that partner for help and unconditional support. 

4. Find a community of mothers who also work outside the home. So much mom support is based on the stay-at-home crowd, and while some of our issues are the same, some are very different. 

5. Remember that raising children only comes once in a lifetime.
