If being a new Mom and a working Mom wasn’t hard enough . . . then throw business travel into the mix?
NO THANK YOU.
Unfortunately, this doesn’t always feel like an option to a working Mom. If you refuse the travel request, you risk your working reputation, perceived career advancement or potentially put your job at risk. And on the other hand, you feel like a horrible Mom. Mom guilt x 1000.
Today, I want to give you my strategies for making business travel more manageable and easing the mom-child separation anxiety. And if you are placed in a position where you don’t want to travel for work, I will provide you successful tips for discussing with your manager.
