Inside: When Mommy Grows Up: The Podcast is the motherhood and career podcast that will help you figure out what you want to be next as a working mom.
As moms, we love to inspire our kids to dream big dreams about who they’ll be as they grow up. But when is the last time you stopped to ask yourself, “Who am I going to be (next) as I grow up?”
That’s exactly where The When Mommy Grows Up Podcast comes in. From two mom friends and the career development pros of Next Chapter Careers, When Mommy Grows Up is the motherhood and career podcast for moms who need help defining what success looks like to them as mid-career professionals and parents, along with the support they need to go after it.
On this podcast, you’ll hear real stories from real moms facing the same challenges you are. Finding flexible jobs, crafting a job you love, discovering your passions, crushing it at work and getting kids off the bus! We’ll talk, laugh, and learn through it all.
What to Expect from When Mommy Grows Up
First things first – our episodes are 20 minutes long. It’s the perfect length for going out for a walk, doing the laundry, the school pick up line, or your commute. We like making things efficient and we love a good multi-task!
Second, When Mommy Grows Up is based on stories. Real stories from real moms like you! Names and details are changed, but the stories you will hear here from moms making changes in their careers are going to sound VERY familiar. They are the stories of your friends, your sisters, your coworkers. Talk about relatable!
And the best part about these stories – they have happy endings! You CAN go from stressed and confused to happy and fulfilled in a flexible job you love. It’s not a dream, it’s a reality, and these moms have done it.

Marie is a mom of three who still doesn’t know what she wants to be when she grows up! After finishing law school she thought her path as an attorney would be a linear journey but she realized as she was getting to know herself better that her priorities had shifted.
In 2017, Marie decided to exit the paid workforce for a few years and staying home with her kids. Having heard that phase of life goes by in a flash she threw away her type A checklist because it wasn’t serving her at the intersection of chaos and trying to enjoy the beauty in the small things.
