For the past 5 years, I’ve been working part time, first as a Talented and Gifted teacher, then at The HomeShed, then for the Iowa Turkey Federation. But this week, I started a new full-time job as social media manager for the Iowa Corn Growers Association.
Working part time definitely had its perks, especially since my boys are young (4 and 6) and my husband is very busy with the farm. But there were a lot of factors that went in to my decision to “go back to work.” The biggest reason? This job is absolutely perfect for me.
I’ve developed a passion for agriculture over the past few years, and as a blogger, I am a huge social media nerd. My new job allows me to combine both passions and do what I love everyday.
I’m three days into my new job, and I can already tell that my new schedule will be a big adjustment for my family.
But I’m also really excited for this new season in life.
Any other working-outside-the-home mommas out there? Any tips for me?
