At Mom Corps, the belief is that work-life satisfaction is best achieved when you can take ownership of several key areas of your life, including career, finances and health & wellness. Through Mom Corps YOU, professional women will have exclusive access to tenured career experts as they discuss and share best practices on topics such as the truths of flexible work, a game plan for relaunching a career, building a personal brand, social media strategies for your next career, and what to do now if you plan to return to work later.
"The constant quest to achieve work-life satisfaction is often a struggle because people are focused on variables out of their control such as extended work hours," says Allison O'Kelly, founder and CEO of Mom Corps. "We created Mom Corps YOU as an active online resource for people to share ideas and learn how to identify the variables they can control in order to take ownership of their lives."
Members will have direct access to Mom Corps' tenured career experts who will deliver live, one-hour training sessions in the areas of job search, work flexibility and business ownership. Members can also connect to the Mom Corps YOU community and network with other professionals who have the common goal of helping each other succeed.
