A couple of years ago a former colleague directed me to LinkedIn - a networking website. I set up a profile and sent out a couple of invitations.
Then I had a baby.
Now my network is expanding. I've received a handful of invitations recently from former colleagues. I've even sent out a couple of invitations.
This is fun. My biggest hangup is my ego. Everyone else has a title. My title is "mom". I just can't put something desperate like "domestic engineer". That just looks like I'm trying a little too hard. "Mom" is an important job - I just can't get over the fact that it looks a little lame on a business card. Like I said, my biggest hangup is my ego. My boys think I rock!
