Welcome to Our New Blog

If experiences and roles define the person, then we are defined by a long list all related to or associated with being a working mother. This blog was created to share the experiences of a few BlueSuitMoms. Our authors include myself (Maria Bailey), Valika Shivcharran, Laura Motsett & Lisa Shaw. We are all working moms.

For me infertility, adoption, juggling work and family, parenting, senior-level executive, mother, wife, sister, friend and entrepreneur all shape and define who I am.

It’s amazing when one looks back on life to see what events contributed to where they stand now and how many of them were so unplanned. Did I think when I majored in Biology and Chemistry that I would one day start an Internet company? Could I ever have imagined that years of fertility drugs, failed attempts at pregnancy and uncertain adoptions would end with four beautiful children?

Who could have guessed that I would go from marketing used cars, rental vehicles and garbage to coaching mothers on how to juggle family and career? No, you never can tell what life has in store for you or how you will apply its lessons somewhere else. The only certain thing about my life is that it’s been interesting.

My best friend always says, she should have been writing it all down a long time ago. I truly believe that there is a lot to be learned from another person’s experiences. Sometimes we can imitate the same successes and at other times, avoid failures. And in the role of a working mother, any short cut you can take including lesson’s learned from another, is positive. Not to mention that it’s nice to know someone else is going through the same challenges.

So today, we add a new feature to BlueSuitMom.com – our new blog. This blog will give you a glimpse into the life of a a few working mothers.

I am a mother of four, a wife, a business executive and a woman. Perhaps it will provide a chuckle, an “I’ve been there too,” grin, another view on life or just provoke a thought. My hope is that it will be a column you look forward to following and one which will stimulate you.
