Career Corner: When Mom goes back to ‘paying’ work

I was honored to
be featured in a recent Tampa Bay Times article about mom’s going back to the work force. Several of my friends have gone
through this situation of a career transition and how to re-enter the workforce, so it’s near and dear to my heart!

early next year.
