When Mommy Grows Up: A Guide to Parenting Yourself to a More Fulfilling Career is fun and relatable career development book for moms who love to ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, but somewhere along the way have stopped asking themselves this same important question.

Tackling the “age 30 transition” with humor, wit, and practical advice, each chapter of When Mommy Grows Up is based on lessons we teach our children, like “use your words,” “you to need to share,” and “make new friends.” Reframing these lessons as career advice shows moms how to apply the same concepts to their professional lives through each stage of career development including figuring it out, making a change, overcoming obstacles, keeping momentum, and managing the logistics of a job search.

Whether we are working full-time, working part-time, working in the office, working from home, or working inside the home, mothers are all in some state of managing our careers, managing our families, and managing to laugh through it all. When Mommy Grows Up is a working mom book that invites all moms to learn about themselves, define what success looks like to them, build new skills, and achieve their goals using practical and proven methods. And of course, find the humor every step of the way!
