“Top 15 Personal Finance Podcasts”
—U.S. News

May 20, 2016

A few anecdotes:

  • The mom blogger who earns six-figures each year calls herself a "stay-at-home-mom." (Not surprising: Pew found 40 percent of Americans believe (brace yourself for the horror) it HARMS children when their mothers work outside the home.
  • The Columbia educated mom who left her banking position owning to burnout and yearning to spend more time with her kids defensively tells all new acquaintances:  "I'm NOT staying home. I'm consultingworkingparttimevolunteering!"

How do you define yourself as a mom? Is it by what you value (professional mom vs SAHM)? Or what you're actually doing at that moment?

Does it matter?

In this episode I share my thoughts on this: Yes it does matter. Because by lying about not earning and working when you do, you perpetuate sexist stereotypes and parenting myths that hold women back.

Have a listen.
