Nearly two years ago I did what I previously thought was unthinkable.
I walked away from my career.
For someone who has worked and hustled for everything I’ve had since I was 15, it was an adjustment, to say the least.
I’ve learned a lot about what not to do as a new stay-at-home mom.
Thankfully, I’ve finally learned a lot of healthy things to do as well.
And even though I traded boardrooms for carpool…
And spreadsheets for bake sales…
There are a lot of similarities between corporate life and stay-at-home mom life.
1- They have a boss
Some are titans of industry… and some are three-foot tall tyrants who go ballistic when their chicken nuggets touch their broccoli.
2- They clean up messes
… like customer complaints… or piles of foot shredding Legos.
3- Coffee keeps their eyes open and prevents them from tearing people apart
… adults… and tiny humans.
4- They manage people who are sometimes emotional and erratic
… no matter the age.
5- Sometimes they look at the people around them and think, ‘Have you all gone mad?’
6- They set goals
… for sales quotas… or going #2 in the potty.
7- They’re salespeople
… of products… or of spoonfuls of carrots that sound like airplanes.
8- They rarely sit down and eat a complete, healthy meal
9- They encourage their team to think outside the box and succeed
10- They need a drink at the end of the day
… a stiff one.
