“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Mom Corps YOU. I received a free trial to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
I have been a stay at home mom since my middle child, Zoey O, was born. She’s now five and will be starting Kindergarten next year. My oldest will be in second grade and my youngest will be in preschool. I have thought long and hard about entering the work force again. I hate to admit, but it scares me.
Last year my family hit a rough spot and needed more money than what was coming in. I tried getting a part-time job. I spent several weeks and applied at least 20-30 different places. The places ranged from gas stations, fast food, and retail stores. No luck. I can’t describe how frustrating that was too me. I had a college degree. I kept asking myself: Why doesn’t any one want me. Than it dawn on me…I haven’t worked in five years. It didn’t matter to them that I had an education I liked a worked history. It didn’t matter that before I came a mom I was a para or a manager at a gas station. It didn’t matter that I was a mom and in my opinion that’s a hard job. It just mattered I didn’t work for five years. I felt hopeless and honestly worthless. I couldn’t get a job. I couldn’t help support my family.
I needed a little extra push. I needed some help. That’s what I loved about Mom Corps YOU.
