Deepti & Tish Make it Work as a Work-At-Home-Parent

I put out the call for Work-at-Home-Parents, and seven wonderful people answered! They represent a variety of careers, their children are all different ages, and Thursday’s Round Table is sure to be lively and helpful.

Here is an introduction to our guests, two by two. Read about Lisa & Róisín here.

an actress, voice over artist and producer, recorded her first audiobook when 7 months pregnant, in a make-shift booth of blankets and towels, in the hot month of June. Now, a mom of a toddler, she’s recording audiobooks from her professional booth at home and learning to strike the balance with work and family on a daily basis. www.deeptigupta.com

We are everywhere now: the Work-At-Home Mom or Dad. Technology has created room for working remotely unheard of just a decade ago. It may seem ideal, but really just creates its own unique challenges. Round-table with guests will include questions and comments from all attendees as well.

Use #WAHParent to join the conversation from home. And yes, children welcome!

*How can you transition from freelance/office hours to working around a child’s schedule?
*How to communicate client expectations without making excuses?
*How to create an office area flexible enough to also balance parenting activities?
*Where to find local activities that allow you to relax or work without your child, and ones that give you the time to focus on them away from work? (Also a handout)
*How to address breastfeeding during meetings
*Should your small budget go towards a babysitter or assistant?
*All this, and quality time with your partner, too?

This one’s for the parents….and those who aren’t so sure

I’ve been a tad out of the blogging loop lately, and mostly because I’m 16 weeks pregnant while work has never been better. Huzzah! Hurrah! I’m excited!…..and sleepy.

I have a lot of drafts to complete and post, but here are two projects that really grabbed my attention lately. I’m sure you can see why.

(Also, if you have something on Facebook to share, tag The CMJ Stories and it will go on my page. Also @CindyMarieJ on twitter).

BEYOND THE USUAL presents
THE INTERVIEW
a play by Susan Josephs // directed by Diana Wyenn Parenthood exists under the firm control of the federal government and it is now easier to get accepted into Harvard than become a mom or dad. Still, first-time applicants Jenna and Steven have beaten the odds and landed a coveted final interview with the U.S. Department of Parenting and Child Welfare. However, when they sit down with their state-licensed interviewer and the questioning begins, all three quickly realize that nothing could have prepared them for what they will learn about themselves—and each other.WORLD PREMIERE // OCTOBER 4 – 27, 2013 
Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00 pm; Sundays at 5:00 pm
