An Empty Nest

Flexible work schedules used to be important to me for all the classic "mom" reasons: the ability to attend school functions, freedom to take care of sick kids without job worries, etc. The less stress we have in our lives the better our in-office attitudes are.

Now that my children are grown the flexibility I have allows me to be a more active member of the community. I can volunteer my time and talents in meaningful ways through a variety of community organizations like Rotary and The Y. The community benefits, I benefit, and my employer benefits because I am representing them as well as myself.
