A number of that might be helpful to other breadwinning, high earning, or high net worth moms (or for those aspiring to this one day!). My favorites list is below.

Splitting Home Responsibilities as a Breadwinning Mom – One question people always ask is how my husband and I split home responsibilities. The answer is “it depends” on a lot of factors, including what’s going on in our family and work lives. Come see how we do it, and advice for others!

Prepping For Kids as a Breadwinning Mom – At Every Age and Stage – This is a reader favorite. All about my journey preparing for kids in my early 20’s, mid 20’s, and early thirties. My three boys were all born during very different life and career stages, so I’ve been there – done that.

Women: Be Proud of Being The Breadwinner – So many articles in the traditional media feature women or men complaining about moms being the breadwinner. Many men and women also don’t talk about it with friends and family, for fear of being thought of negatively. In this article I take the opposite approach and ask women to be proud of their breadwinning status.

Traveling For Work as a Breadwinning Mom – This article was written after a week-long work trip. Oftentimes as a mom people assume that you don’t want to or can’t travel for work.

How I Have More Time Than You – Following up on the above article, I get a TON of comments at work and here online from people that can’t believe everything I accomplish. How can one person do so much? The secret here isn’t in what I do, but what I don’t do. I wouldn’t be able to accomplish what I do without the support of my husband and boys. That ruthless prioritization comes into play here again. The real parental heroes in my mind are the parents who make do without a support system.

Dealing With Snow Days as a Breadwinning Mom – Living in Connecticut, snow days are a simple fact of life. But working from home when you have three boys who are also home can be a challenge. I talk about that here.
