I am a member because I am looking into learn on how to be a successful professional and business owner while been Latina, a mom of two and an avid reader.

What is one piece of advice you’d offer working moms?

To take care of yourself! If mom is ok children will be ok. The first time that I heard that advised I thought it was a bit "sexist" . It was by a senior English female pediatrician. I heard three more times by pediatricians in three different cities...It hit when I realized that I have spent a whole afternoon at beach shouting at two kids playing nicely (and maybe too close to the water...). I was not ok. I looked for help and we are all ok now including me and my two teens.
