MommyWurk.com was born out of the desire of two former co-workers turned friends to create an online space for moms to gather: to educate, empower and encourage one another. As working outside of the home moms (WOTHM), Kristen and Alexis realized they shared similar challenges, choices and concerns. Balancing motherhood and a career can be overwhelming at times. Trying to juggle the needs of ‘babies’ and the expectations of bosses can wear anybody out. How does one master being a soccer mom and a successful mom? Do I work on this project or help my toddler go potty? When will I have time to plan meals when I have to plan the weekly team meeting? How can I take my child to his/her doctor’s appointment if I have an important sales appointment? Whose opinion matters more: my baby’s or my boss’? As working moms, we battle with these questions and make these types of decisions everyday. We also realize that all moms work. Whether you are a stay at home mom (SAHM), a WOTHM or work from home mom (WFHM) we ALL work.
Let’s unite and use mommywurk.com as our online space. We are here to ease the pain. Consider us as your birthing partner. Be strong and just breathe!
