Career track or mommy track. It’s been one or the other until now. Monica Samuels and J. C. Conklin, themselves working mothers who wanted more time at home with their children, have the best advice available for women who want it all. In this book readers will learn:

• Workplace exit strategies that set you up for future reentry
• Tools for evaluating financial feasibility of staying at home or working part-time
• How to plan quickly for changes in finances
• The right time to leave work and the right time to return
• How to get back into the game when you’ve been out for 5, 10 or even 20 years

A practical, commonsense approach for mothers, this book is not filled with doom and gloom scenarios about stay-at-home moms, nor does it offer a litany of rosy-colored mother–to–CEO success stories. Rather, the authors examine every conceivable angle and obstacle to help mothers make the best decisions possible before leaving a job, during their time away, and once they decide to return to work. The wisdom in this book comes from career counselors, economists, employers, and some high-profile working mothers such as Ann Richards, Maria Shriver, and Karen Hughes. The authors distill the wisdom of the experts and the many high-profile women who have “been there” into a three-tiered battle plan to help any woman get through this life-changing process and come out ahead.
