Wellness Wednesday: Can Working Moms Have It All?


By Jaime Lynn Curley

I get a butterfly sensation in my belly every single time I connect with a mom who struggles with balance. I know the sadness. I know the fears. I know the sacrifices. I know the strains. I also know the possibilities. I know the flexibility. I know the freedom that is on the other side.

I read an article and it questioned, “Can women have it all”? I started to reflect on what it means to have it all. Some argue we cannot have it all but I believe we can have what matters.

First, I desperately wanted to be the one giving my girls a bath and reading bedtime stories to them. That wasn’t happening while I was traveling and out of town as often as I was.

Second, I was required to financially contribute to our household. If I worked as hard for myself as I did in my j.o.b., I knew I could have success.

Third, I craved balance. I was up to the challenge of being a successful entrepreneur and present mom but I wanted it to be on my terms. My girls were always going to be my priority without the guilt.

What matters to you the most? I open the door for moms (and dads!) to build a sustainable business from their home while their little ones are at school, during naptime and in the pockets of their lives.
