Did you know working mothers are now the sole breadwinners for 40% of US families? This is a dramatic cultural shift brought about by a record number of married women out-earning their husbands and more women bringing up children alone.
The number of "breadwinner moms" has soared in the past five decades, up from just 11% in 1960, according to an analysis of US census data released on Wednesday by the Pew Research Center.
This new development in the family dynamic is caused by two distinct groups of women. Sixty-three percent American mothers – 8.6 million – who provide the primary source of income for their families are bringing up their children alone, while 37% – 5.1 million – are married mothers who earn more than their spouses
Great news, but this means women are taking on a lot more on their own compared to the previous generations - having careers, but still doing the majority of the childcare and house work themselves. If you are a working Mom, check out this amazing seminar created specifically with working Moms in mind by the Founder of In Our Shoes, full time working Mom to two, Marisa Santoro!

Getting comfortable with self-promotion, creating strategic network alliances and embracing opportunities promptly and without second thought to raise your rank in business, garners visibility kicking your leadership rank up a notch.
