for moms with careers on their minds

A few weeks ago, my friend Anne (who works for WomenVenture, a non-profit that helps women — and men — start businesses, discern career directions and become more financially literate) invited me to be part of a focus group to help plan a new class WomenVenture is offering — "Career and Life Planning for Moms." It sounded like such an interesting class that I decided to take it myself. I hope it'll help give me some direction about eventually re-entering the work world (work outside of mothering, I should say), whether that's via freelancing or something new and different a few years down the road. And hey — after Baby No. 2 is born, it's going to be a lot harder to leave the kids home with Steve on Saturday mornings and do something like this.

I thought I'd post some information about the class here, since I know a number of you may be contemplating some of the same issues. So ... click here if you're interested. (I think there may be a discount on the registration fee.)

(Here are Anne and me on Saturday night — a few friends and I got together to celebrate my birthday. We went to Buca's, and to steal a lyric from that famous Italian-American Frank Sinatra, it was a very good time.)

Sounds like a great class! I'll be interested to hear what you get out of it!
