    Hands on

    Elizabeth Wilcox has managed to address almost every issue that faces a mother who needs or wants to work. After reading this book, I was able to come up with an unusual way to make my job fit with my family obligations, and my boss ended up being impressed with the way I handled the discussion. I could do it because the book gave useful tools and taught me how to be prepared. It is rare to find books that are actually practical and how-to in this area, so this one really stands out.

    So helpful

    I bought this book when I decided to go back to work after a couple of years at home with my kids. I was honestly a bit scared about selling myself and convincing an employer to take my skills seriously, but The Mom Economy gave me the tools I needed to prove my worth, which also gave me confidence. I started a new job 3 weeks ago, and so far, it's all manageable. Anyone who's going back to work should use this book - it will make you feel like you have support in the process.

    One of the best resources around for working moms!

    For 3 years I'd struggled with questions about balancing work with family - and I mean the practical questions that help solve the real, tangible problems that working mothers face every day. Finally, Elizabeth Wilcox answers them, providing no-nonsense, clear advice on how to deal with issues like flex-time, talking to bosses, and other day-to-day challenges that our mothers never prepared us for. I know I'll keep referring to this helpful guide for years to come, as will the many friends and colleagues I've given it to. Highly recommended.
