"Having kids inspired me take bigger risks and achieve in my career," Jeanie Ahn

I recently met Jeanie Ahn at Yahoo! Finance, where she interviewed me for her show "The Payoff" (catch it on book launch day: Oct. 17!). Afterwards, we chatted about New York City schools, motherhood and work. Some of her comments struck me as remarkable and universal, and worthy of a whole podcast episode. In this Like a Mother episode, we hear from Ahn: The origins of her working-mom guilt (a mom who laid on thick the reminders of the professional and artistic sacrifices she made for her children) How she harnessed her mom-guilt to take big risk in her career The steps she took to break out of the traditional TV producer career to forge a path that works for her, her family, and her career goals The magic that transpired when Ahn established what she wanted in a new job, including nice people, a family-friendly work schedule, and a higher-profile, on-camera role How her spirituality enforces her work (I love this)

I'm a struggling single mom of 4, desperately looking for encouragement and support. I truly believe the single working moms are the forgotten silent and suffering members of society. Yes, completely ignored by society including the women's movement! What a slap in the face that is!! When I was going through a horrid divorce I reached out to N.O.W. and they had absolutely nothing to offer as far as support. They added my name to their mailing list and all I got was political newsletters... thanks, but no thanks.
I do enjoy listening to podcasts and turned to this as a possible source of encouragement. The episode I heard was in relation to alimony and child support. It was stated in relation to alimony and child support that we need to suffer as good feminists for the cause of our future generations. SERIOUSLY?!?! The fact is that the family court system is a sexist corrupt system that exploits women and children. Period!! I am just so offended by the ignorance of this idea that I had to break my silence and speak for the overworked, stressed and oppressed single mothers. Sadly, they won't find encouragement here.
