I’ve always admired Cara for figuring out what work situation worked best for her as a working mom, then going for it. After the birth of her second child, she realized she wanted to go part-time, and she made it happen. Then a few years later she decided she wanted to do freelance, and made that happen, too.
She paved the road for a lot of different people to take on flexible working arrangements throughout the company. I’m one of them—I work one day a week from home. Of course, it helps to have a great employer (there is a reason we’ve been named Best Place to Work three years running) to help make flexible working arrangements a reality.
But it got me thinking, what would your ideal work situation be? If money wasn’t an issue, if job advancement wasn’t an issue, etc. I’m going to be completely honest here (even though my employers read the blog!): I’m not sure working home one day a week is my ideal work situation, but I sure do like it.
So what about you—would you work at all? Would you work part-time? Would you work full-time? Part-time from home? Lemme know.
