Working Mom

Believe it or not, there is still the misconception that you must decide to be a stay-at-home or a working mom. Come on, everyone… It’s 2024, we can do both! Now, I realize that it is easier said than done…

 For that reason, I wrote this article to empower you — or ladies in your life — to have it all. 

Traits of a Successful Working Mom

Even today, we ladies are put in a tough spot. There is a stigma attached to whether you commit to running a household or pursuing a career…

On one hand, your importance is downplayed as “just a mom”…

On the other hand, you are not giving your children enough attention…


But the reality is that you are a working mom whether you choose to work outside the home or not. 

We all have a million things to juggle at once. We all want our kids to be happy and healthy. It’s difficult, but it is the most important job in the world. 

Although it is not easy, you can do it — and still pursue your purpose. And I’ve noticed there are some qualities multitasking mothers have in common… 

Organized and Creative with Solutions

The foundation to having it all is not balance. It is prioritization and the ability to think outside the box. See, being a “perfect mom” does not mean being hyper-fixated on your children 24/7…


Depending on the day, that could be: 

  • Your marriage.
  • Your career.
  • Other pursuits that make you — well, you. 
  • Or, your kids. 

That’s how you are successful in any role you take on — not just as a working mom. But, where it transforms from having your priorities right to a superpower is creativity. 

For example, you may have to choose unconventional times to squeeze in all you want to get done. (Grant would take our daughters to the gym in the mornings when they were little. That way, he could continue his normal work routine and have quality time with them.)

However you figure it out to work for you, you must also tell your family the plan… 

Superstar Working Moms are Great Communicators 

What makes it possible for your family to understand when your focus has to be somewhere other than on them?


For that reason, my girls, Grant, and I regularly revisit the purpose and goals individually and as a family. 

These open dialogues make it easier for me to wear my working mom hat when I need to. That is because everyone understands the big picture of what we’re trying to achieve. 

I suggest that you do this with everyone in your life. I promise you that it is a game-changer. On top of that, it makes others more willing to support you along the way… 

Not Afraid to Delegate when Necessary

Just because you want to have it all as a working mom, doesn’t mean you have to do it all. 

When I first became a mother, I felt like I couldn’t ask for any help. I was afraid that somehow made me “less” than other mothers. 

Well, I’m here to tell you that is simply untrue. 

In fact, no one in the history of the world has done incredible things by themselves. It is ridiculous to feel ashamed if you need support from others. 

Relief from some smaller tasks for you to focus on being the best mom or whatever role is liberating. Further, more of your allies are willing to lend a hand than you think. 

You just have to ask. 

EVERY Working Mom Can Have it All 

As I mentioned earlier, there is no reason that you can’t have it all as a working mom. 

It may take some rearranging and work, but I believe you can do it. It is all about communication, allies, and the right tools. 

These traits are a great start to having the life you deserve. However, I also know implementing them can be difficult.
