Family Matters: Juggling life for working moms

The never ending juggling act of being a working mom and the guilt that so often accompanies that.

Balancing the time spent working with making time for key moments with your children, is a perpetual struggle. How do we find the balance?

Amanda Rogaly is the founder of an online parenting resource centre called Baby YumYum. Amanda gave up her first business in PR to become a full-time mom for several years, and then went back into the workplace to start again, building a new PR and Marketing company.
