Welcome to Working Mom Notes:
THE MODERN VILLAGE FOR MULTITASKING, GUILT RIDDEN, CAREER DRIVEN SUPERWOMEN
A resource and platform for the modern career mom.
A note from Founder, Ashley Reckdenwald:
I am proud of each and every one of you for making it through the past year. It hasn’t necessarily looked pretty, but it didn’t have to. No style points in the year of 2020.
I am excited to watch our online community grow. We have tens of thousands of women all in similar boats. After a year inundated with virtual everything, it allowed me to see what is lacking for us all: real connections. It's wonderful to interact with women around the globe and be a part of groups that support those networks, but we need more. We need to turn to those within our community for support. We need the sense that we have more than the required two people on our emergency call list for our children. We need people to support us and we need to not feel guilty about it.
In 2021, I am bringing you custom villages for each and every working mom. No more, “there is no village.” No more, “I can’t find a village.” No more, “I’m lonely and isolated.” No more, “I don’t know who to turn to.” I cannot wait to help you form your team, your pack, your tribe, your village…whatever you want to call it - every group will be given their own name, keeping with the theme of custom curated teams. Groups are made specifically for you and specifically for where you live. Teams will increase bonds within communities that will further strengthen the sense of village and unload our weaknesses.
Once your team is created, it will meet once a week with topic-lead discussions run by a moderator. You and your team will set goals to help strengthen bonds and develop support systems amongst each other and within your community. Topics will be specifically curated for each team's dynamic. There will be opportunities for guest speakers, online events, in-person meet ups (COVID-Pending), and more!
I will not be sharing exclusives on social media, so please join the email list and keep a lookout in your inbox!
Wishing you only the best for 2021 from WMN!
Founder/CEO Working Mom Notes
Welcome to your village!
"What a unique and fulfilling experience it was to be part of The Emboldeners, the first Working Mom Notes Village select group! I had the honor and pleasure of meeting 8-10 inspiring women from my community, sharing my strengths and advice, and learning from their experiences. The weekly meetings were encouraging and intimate and I always left feeling charged up for the week ahead. Outside of the meetings, I got acquainted more closely with a few of my teammates to forge deeper friendships and relationships. I’m looking forward to helping my teammates in weeks and months ahead with improving their self-care, creating organizational routines at home, and decluttering and simplifying their spaces. And I’m eager to get their mentoring on how to prioritize better, manage my time, and be a better listener. It’s such a rare and precious experience to be with other women who are committed to elevating one another and helping one another be their best self!"
"Working Mom Notes has been a such a wonderful support for me. I work full-time and have two small children at home. WMN has provided me the opportunity to connect with other moms who understand the stress of juggling professional responsibilities as well as personal responsibilities. I have appreciated having women in similar situations as sounding boards and love the diversity of personalities, backgrounds, ideas, and opinions. Joining WMN has been one of the most positive things that I have done for myself in a long while."
