Managing the Many Pieces of Motherhood, and Not Losing Yourself in the Process, with Maria Smith Moms With a Purpose

    • Entrepreneurship

In this week’s Episode 16 of the Confessions of a Working Mom Podcast, I am talking to Maria Smith of the Confessions of a Corporate Mom Blog. Maria is a corporate working mom, who has found herself moving across the country several times in the course of her and her husband’s careers, while juggling family life in between. She knows a thing or two about balancing career ambitions with raising a family.
She also just recently started a business venture along with her daughter! Their first product is a #workingmama coffee mug, and they have plans to expand in 2021. The company supports the “Dress for Success” organization, and is donating 20% of proceeds from the coffee mug to this organization, whose mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
In this episode, Maria and I talk all things related to motherhood and how we can find solidarity and hope in the fact that we are all similar as working moms, and are all in this journey together.
Some of the topics we touch on are: Mom Guilt, Perfectionism and Motherhood, the Struggle of “Trying to Balance it All,” Burnout, and How Moms Can Find Their Confidence While Working From Home.
We talk full circle about working motherhood, and the ways we can become more thoughtful and intentional about setting our goals as working moms. These are all great things to think about with the new year quickly approaching!

Tune in to this inspiring and amazing conversation while sipping your favorite coffee, because you are going to want to listen carefully and take notes!!
