I am really excited to introduce you to Mom Source Network a new company that is designed to help moms (and dads, too) get back into the work place after an extended period of time off. Not only to return to work, but to create better options for families. Their slogan is “The Flexible Employment Advocates.”
There are many reasons people need to take time off of work, whether it is for raising children, taking care of parents, illness, just to name a few.
Mom Source is all about connecting bright, educated candidates to progressive companies willing to work with employees to create the best work environment for both the employee and the company.
It’s all about creating a work/life blend. So many talented people are stuck in the current work system where they have to chose between family life or being chained to work from the day of graduation to retirement.
As a mom, I totally want the opportunity to use my brain beyond the cycle of pouring a cup of milk, playing trains with my boys, and changing yet another stinky diaper! There is so much value in raising my family, and I am grateful for the opportunity to be the major influence in their lives at this point.
But I know like many other moms that I want to continue to develop and use skills that can help my family financially and give me a different kind of challenge.
That’s what makes Mom Source such an awesome business tool for people getting back into the workforce after an extended amount of time off of work.
The truth is there is so much incredible talent in moms (and dads) who desire to be there for their children as they grow. Mom Source is meeting the needs of bringing that talent out of the house and creating a new way to work!
