Moms and money! In this episode I interview two amazing women:
Mandi Woodruff, 27, is personal finance correspondent at Yahoo! and podcaster at Brown Ambition (with recent Like a Mother guest Tiffany 'The Budgetnista' Aliche). She also has an awesome boyfriend (they live in my neighborhood and have had dinner with my kids and me. Two words: A. Dorbs.) Why is she having such an existential crisis about when to have a baby? Mandi and talk through this very common challenge of women her age -- the pressure to have your career, finances and love life in perfect shape before bringing a little person into the world.
I also interview Laura Vanderkam, mom of 4 and author of 168 Hours: You Have More Time Than You Think, and I Know How She Does It: How Successful Women Make The Most of Their Time (in which she quotes moi). Laura is a student of America's time use-- especially families with professional mothers. She breaks down the myths about how much time we all think we spend with our kids, how much time we actually spend with our kids, and how much time our children actually need us. You'll be shocked and liberated to go live a better life!
