Handling work and raising a family isn’t always easy. Read these books for working moms to help you be more productive and reclaim your time.
“How do you do it?” everyone asks working moms. It seems almost impossible to juggle all that we do.
We’re expected to perform well in our careers and businesses, but also to nurture and spend plenty of time with the kids. We find ourselves in a dual shift, at work for several hours only to come home and tend to childcare duties for several more.
While the era of dads as a hands-off role has changed over the last several decades, as it is, moms continue to do more tasks. This, on top of more moms entering the workforce.
No wonder we struggle with balancing work and family.
That’s why I’m always fascinated with books about and for working moms. I collected a few of my favorites that talk about how we got to where we are or how to do well the work force. I also include books that aren’t specifically about working moms, but can help our journey along the way.
Some books offer productivity hacks, while others question whether we’re truly as time-starved as we think we are.
Even though we’re already limited in time as it is, I also know parents love to read (one of the easier hobbies we can squeeze in during the day!). I hope you find your next inspiring read from this collection of books for working moms, just as others have:
