Have You Ever Taken A Career Pause? Check Out Ready Pause Go Podcast

 

Have you ever taken a career pause or sought work-from-home opportunities to stay home with your kids? I recently did an interview with Erika Parker Price, host of the Ready Pause Go podcast. Erika has numerous resources to help women transform their career pause into a powerful time for themselves so they can hit the ground running when they’re ready. She provides this with success stories, tools, and a supportive community.

The focus of our interview was the freelance life and balancing work and family as a writer. We chatted about my journey as a writer and how I’ve reinvented myself over the years as a freelance journalist, marketing writer, health writer, fiction author in several genres, developmental book editor, online course creator and founder of Shortcuts for Writers, all while staying home with my kids.

We talked about the ups and downs of the writing life, how to pull back when the work gets too overwhelming or life gets in the way, how to dial it up when more income is needed, and why I created my upcoming Book Editing Blueprint course.

According to Erika’s website, 43 percent of moms take a career pause at some point. Ninety-three percent want to return, but only 73 percent succeed. Of those who return, only 54 percent return to full-time work.

A career pause is a choice you deserve, Erika notes. But you also deserve to return to your full potential. Erika has numerous resources to help women transform their pause into a powerful time for YOU, so you can hit the ground running when you’re ready. She provides this with success stories, tools, and a community to support you. Need resume help? Want to learn more about side hustles and working from home? Erika’s got some great freebies, and she also offers coaching services.

Her podcast has featured topics such as lightening the mental load of motherhood, carving a career from childhood passions, learning when and how to say no, going back to school, discovering what’s holding you back, and much more.
