Last week, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Dr. Portia Jackson, founder and host of Working Motherhood, an online resource for working moms that offers a “daily source of inspiration and encouragement.” Working Motherhood features 30 minute interviews of women from all different backgrounds, professions, and stages of life, exploring the journey of motherhood, the balance of career and family, and moments of challenge and success.
I’ve never been interviewed like this before, and I’ll admit to being nervous (okay, more than a little nervous), but talking with Dr. Jackson was like speaking with good friend so I was quickly put at ease. The interview provided me with a chance to reflect upon on my journey as a working mom these past seven years, and I found myself surprised a bit by all I had to say (though having something to say has rarely been a problem for me!) and pleased that, even though life often feels so frenetic, I’ve managed to find my way through, incorporating my own lessons learned and maybe even being a little bit better today than I was yesterday (or at least I hope so!).
My interview is now online on the Working Motherhood site; you can find it here. (It’s also on iTunes.) Come visit me on Working Motherhood, and listen to my story. And, since I’ve not yet been able to work up the courage to listen to the interview myself, please tell me what you think in the comments!
