We moms start to learn from that first day a new baby arrives how to work faster, smarter, better.  I, for one, often feel like the character in Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat, balanced on one foot, with several plates twirling in the air so that I can meet my responsibilities both at home and at work.

We don't always have to be balancing on only one foot though.  As co-founder of MomsRising, I'm happy to share that I've been hearing about quite a few successful new workplace practices for fitting work and life together--and which allow us to be balanced with two feet planted firmly on the ground. More and more businesses are starting to “get it” that moms, dads, and all workers have a lot of plates in the air and can successfully manage work and life when companies update their workplace practices to meet the needs of a modern workforce.

Please join me on a teleconference call put on by the Shift Network this coming Friday, Oct. 29th for 30 minutes to talk about fitting work and life together. We’ll talk about how flexible work, virtual work (tele-commuting), on demand work, high commitment work, and non-linear career paths can create work that is great for all workers and at the same time boost the bottom line for employers.

RSVP for this free teleconference which is put on by The Shift Network today!

*After you sign up, The Shift Network will email you the call in details for my call, as well as share information about other speakers in this series and in the future.

DATE: Friday, October 29th

TIME: 12pm EST / 9am PST

The teleconference I am doing is  part of the Enlightened Business Summit put on by The Shift Network running from Oct. 25-29th.  This teleconference event includes 40 leaders such as, Shai Aggassi, Steven Covey, Tim Ferris and Roxanne Emmerich--CEOs, authors, and visionaries who are changing "business as usual" in the workforce.  You can participate on as many calls as you like and interact with both the featured leaders and other participants from around the world.
