Mojo Mom Podcast
Bringing you the best in current news, politics, feminism, work and family, as well as expert guest interviews about motherhood and society.
Amy and Sheryl are in a giddy mood this week, which is a nice change of pace!

They are happy because Pamela Stone, author Opting Out? Why Women Really Quit Careers and Head Home, is the guest on the podcast, and she'll be speaking in Durham, NC in person next week. 

So if you are in the area, we hope you'll register for the Carolina Parent Women@Work Breakfast on September 17, and join us to form a Mojo table!

Amy and Sheryl discuss the successes of their Mojo Circle, a group of ten women who have met monthly for two years now.  The group has a shared background as mothers, but when we meet we talk primarily about entrepreneurship, and serve as a sounding board for each other.

Amy and Sheryl talk about the keys to success in forming a group, and you can also find resources in the free Mojo Mom Party Kit on

Then Amy talks to Kella Hatcher, co-founder of Balancing Professionals and expert on alternative work arrangements (flex-time, telecommuting--the strategies that allow people to get their work done and have a life, too!).

Balancing Professionals will be presenting a Career On-Ramping workshop in conjunction with the Carolina Parent Women@Work event in Durham, North Carolina on September 17, 2008.  We hope to see you there!

We are reposting the episode on Mojo Mom and Positive Discipline because only the second segment was uploaded the first time.  Here is the complete show:

We're reaching the end of summer and co-host Sheryl Grant is already back to school, so Amy's friend Aparna Desai Brown is filling in.  Aparna shares her family's story of recently moving away from Silicon Valley in favor of a saner and more sustainable lifestyle in Pittsburgh.

Then Mojo Mom switches gears to talk about Positive Discipline with Amy McCready, founder of Positive Parenting Solutions in Raleigh, North Carolina.  We have more democratic families these days, but how can parents maintain their leadership role?  Positive Discipline operates on a foundation of respect and responsibility for all family members to help parents bring up capable, competent kids.
