The Mom Project with Colleen Curtis

Do you ever feel like you are being forced to choose between your family and your career? Colleen Curtis, Chief Community Officer at the Mom Project, joins me today to discuss how they are working towards a future where women no longer have to choose. The Mom Project is a digital marketplace that connects family-friendly employers who ”get it” with moms who are looking for more work-life balance without the guilt. Colleen will share how the Mom Project is working towards building a better future, what the research shows when it comes to working moms on a variety of different fronts, and what silver linings have come from the COVID-19 pandemic for working moms.

The #1 word I hear from Mamas is: CONFLICTED

Do you know that feeling? 

If you’re great at work, you’re not the mom you want to be, if you’re focused on your kids, your work begins to suffer, and somewhere in all of this, the time you spend on your partner, friendships, relatives, chores...and (maybe you) all feel at odds with one another.

Can you relate?

As modern moms we’re skilled at juggling it all, but keeping all those balls in the air can leave us drained and burnt out.

There's a better way.

How You Ask?

The Change Happens When You Build a Life That’s: CENTERED

The Modern Mommy Doc Podcast helps moms say "no" to unrealistic expectations for a perfectly-balanced life and say "yes" to what really matters. You'll hear inspiring interviews with experts in each of the core areas modern moms who parent with intention know are critical for success –dreaming big, spending time on things that matter, making space for themselves, investing in their mental and physical health, parenting in partnership, and being intentional about the way they parent their kids.
