“Stay at Home Mothers: Rewriting the Script”
by Hilary Berger
I heard about WLAM from a friend in town - she specifically touted Hilary as "the woman who totally helped me to get back to work." I've known for years that once my kids were a little older, I would want to find a job that was fulfilling, but flexible.
After two sessions in the reinvention course for stay at home mothers, I knew I was in the right place! Hilary's course offers practical advice along with exercises to soul search and find your fit. With Hilary's encouragement, I continued to see my volunteer roles as a way to refresh my professional skills. I continued my course work in personal branding and social media understanding which helped my confidence. I was fortunate that some networking amongst the WLAM community along with another connection introduced to me to company I am now working with. I am truly grateful to Hilary and her colleagues at WLAM!
Hi Hilary, I credit you with helping me regain the confidence to go back to work and to do it in a way that works for me and my family. Your class and support were invaluable to me. I am constantly recommending you to other moms who could use helpful guidance to get back into work on their own terms. I would happily join your groups, but I have gone back to the United Nations, on my own terms, too).
The WLAM Career Academy was absolutely brilliant. Dr. Hillary Berger took a huge topic (re-starting or re-focusing your career) and broke it down into manageable modules. Dr. Berger is a gifted career counselor and I was blown away by the high quality and caring industry experts who led the modules. After completing the WLAM Career Academy, I feel I have the tools and confidence to embark on the next phase. Thank you Hilary!
One of the most important gifts I gave myself this year was permission to be completely lost and admit it - without guilt and shame. Then I allowed myself to be “rescued” little by little by Hilary and her methods, by the patient coaching from a talented group of professional women who teach the skills I needed to acquire, and by the new friendships I made with women brave enough to show up and be vulnerable along with me. Thank you to all of them. Who knew what was waiting for me?
I came to Hilary for help when I was stuck at a crossroads in my life. Hilary gave me validation – of who I was, of what I had experienced, of my own unique challenges. This was exactly what I needed to set me free. Hilary’s compassionate intelligence gave me the strength and courage to start on the road to much needed change, and I will always be grateful to Hilary for helping me find my way.
