“You’re not supposed to take a puppy away from its mom for at least eight weeks. Yet we expect moms to go back to work after just six,”.
Even worse, a quarter of employed American mothers return to work within two weeks of giving birth.
The family leave act might give women the right to maternity leave but who can afford to take that much paid time off.
Let’s meet a new mom boss who is starting a unique company to give women a 12-week maternity leave.
This is Motivating Mom.
Margi is a Minneapolis-based working mom of 4 awesome children. She graduated from Marymount Manhattan College in NYC with a BA in Communications, and after 4 years in the cosmetics industry, she has worked in Wine and Spirit sales management in MN for the past 6 years.
After discovering she was pregnant with twins, Margi created her blog www.Twinningmom.com as a way to share her experience and connect with other moms.
Margi is fascinated and humbled by the power of woman as both business women and as mothers.
After truly understanding the hurdles working mothers face every day to succeed in their conflicting worlds, Margi has dedicated herself to supporting the success of women leadership in the workplace.
Margi founded Take12 in February of 2016, and launched the Beta version of mytake12.com in December of 2016.
