Pivoting from full-time motherhood to employment can be daunting In this episode Kelley Biskupiak & Susan Rietano Davey, co-founders of the on-line professional coaching platform, Prepare to Launch U, share with Linda tips & strategies for moms interested in returning to the work force. Topics touched on: how to reclaim your professional confidence; how to shift from focusing entirely on the family to yourself; the importance of getting ahead of the curve, i.e. taking small but critical steps to plan for your future before the kids are actually out of the house. Also, how to spin your time at home into something prospective employers will view as an asset.

Prepare to Launch U provides instruction, inspiration and community to women navigating work-life transitions along the continuum of life. Its signature online career re-entry course has students in 26 states. It also offers a course to help women plan and execute a maternity leave.

Like Linda, both Kelley and Susan have first-hand experiences with the challenges of pivoting from full-time motherhood to the working world. Both women opted out to take career breaks, opted back in as working moms, and made mid-career pivots to start their own business.
