Myth: “My kids will suffer if I work full time.”
Reality: Your kids will be fine. In fact, the example you set by going back to work may leave them better off.
Myth: “No company will want me since I don’t have the skills I used to have.”
Reality: Don’t sell yourself short. You have unique skills and experiences that every company needs. What you don’t have, you can learn.
Myth: “Getting back to work is impossible.”
Reality: Millions of women have made the comeback. You can, too.
The many real-life stories in this book (including Karyn’s) prove that with a smart strategy and some determination, almost any mom can make a successful comeback. In the process she can improve her standard of living, her self-esteem, and probably also the well-being of her kids.
As Casone writes, “No matter who you are, no matter why change comes into your life, I hope this book will help you to do what my mom did: to stare that change in the face and say with confidence, ‘Bring it!’”
