    Rebalancing Your Professional, Personal, and Family Priorities During a Career Break

    Rebalancing Your Professional, Personal, and Family Priorities During a Career Break

    If you’re a mom on a family-focused career break, it may not feel like the time to set goals for yourself. It can even feel like the end of the big goals you’d previously set. But time out of the workforce is also an opportunity to build a more meaningful life that works for who you are today, the you with kids. Your career break doesn’t have to feel like getting lost on the path you’ve set for yourself. It can feel like a whole separate trip! In this week’s episode of the Money, Career & Motherhood podcast I talk about setting career break goals designed to rebalance the areas of your life while on break.

    Career Break Success Story: Kathryn Wepfer

    Career Break Success Story: Kathryn Wepfer

    A family-driven career break can be the start of your next big thing. That was certainly the case for my guest on this week’s Money, Career & Motherhood podcast.
    Kathryn Wepfer was a highly accomplished working professional excited about her work, until the birth of her second child. When she was unable to extend her maternity leave after her second daughter was born, Kathryn did something she never expected to – she quit her job to spend more time bonding with her new daughter.
    While out on her extended break, Kathryn did something else she hadn’t expected to do – start a business. Now, as the founder of Fulcrum Apparel, Kathryn is able to improve the return to work experience for new working mothers, use her professional skills, and be an active and engaged mother.
     
    About the Guest:
    Kathryn Wepfer is the founder and CEO of Fulcrum Apparel, workwear for pumping mothers. She began her career as a mechanical engineer for General Electric, earned an MBA from MIT, and spent much of her career in various roles at Microsoft. After the birth of her second daughter she pivoted to entrepreneurship with an idea sparked by her own journey as a working mother. She founded Fulcrum Apparel in 2019 to elevate workwear for moms navigating the pumping process. Kathryn is dedicated to empowering the female workforce through products and services that enable women to be present in both work and motherhood while achieving all their goals.

    Filling in the Gaps of Traditional Childcare with Flexible Care co-founder Priya Amin

    Filling in the Gaps of Traditional Childcare with Flexible Care co-founder Priya Amin

    When I first met today’s guest, she said something that hit me hard. “There will always be a breakdown in childcare.” It’s true. This is why solutions for parents who take career breaks are so important to me. Even with flexible employers, things come up when you have kids. Sometimes the challenges are so great that parents, usually mothers, take career breaks to solve these problems.
    Priya Amin is the co-founder of an innovative virtual childcare company called Flexible Care. She left a thriving career for a family-driven career break and has since dedicated her career to being part of the solution for working parents by founding Flexible Care. In this episode, Priya and I discuss the challenges working parents’ face, the evolution of Flexible Care as she and her co-founder try to navigate the needs of parents, as well as the challenges she faced in funding the business’ growth. We talk openly about remaining solution-focused in her startup when the original plan didn’t work and her advice for female founders who are trying to seek investors for their business. The Flexible Care team successfully raised nearly $1 million in funding, yet it was ironically childcare that presented one of its biggest barriers to funding.
     
    About the Guest:
    Priya Amin is an entrepreneur, TEDx speaker and mother to two boys, Ronin and Kirin. She holds an MBA from the University of Arizona, and worked as a product and brand manager at corporations such as IBM and Nestle. In 2012, she left her high powered career to be home with her two boys, and never looked back. After successfully launching and running a marketing consulting firm called ROKI, she began looking for ways to continue fostering creativity and entrepreneurship among women. She launched Flexable, LLC in 2016 and was accepted to the 16th cohort of the AlphaLab Accelerator program in 2016. Flexable has gained regional and national attention for providing innovative childcare solutions, most notably on-site childcare at offices and events.  Since the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic, Flexable pivoted to offering  Virtual Childcare hosted by fully vetted Flexable Facilitators to keep kids 3-10 years old engaged, so working parents can take back their schedule.
