Working moms face a long list of challenges and it’s no secret teary morning drop-offs are included in it.
The tears, anxiety, and sometimes even guilt remain after a long day of work while children wonder what mommy does after she disappears for the day.
Today on the show, we welcome MIT-trained entrepreneur, and author of the book Mommy Goes to Work, Jossy Lee.
As a working mom, Jossy used to struggle every morning when dropping off her kid at school. After extensive research and eagerness to find a solution, she came up with a way to facilitate the conversation between mother and child about what we moms are doing all day long in a relatable way.
Both Laura and Jossy know what it’s like to build a successful career while caring for a family, and in today’s episode, they discuss all the intricacies of being professional women and mothers.
If you are a mother in the workforce looking to strengthen a sense of togetherness with your children while building your career, listen to this entire episode, and don’t forget to check out Jossy’s book!
