Working Moms on the Brink: A Conversation with Katrina Alcorn

Join the bloggers of Working Moms Against Guilt and Katrina Alcorn for a lively discussion about the dysfunction between our careers and home lives--and the ultimate consequences to our health.

Updated on Sept. 12, 10:35 p.m. with a new date and time for this event, so that more moms could attend!

Feeling overbooked, stressed out and, well, “on the brink”? If you answered yes (or more like siiiiighhhh), you’re not alone.

That’s why we’re hosting Working Moms on the Brink: A Conversation with Katrina Alcorn. It’s a live online discussion with Katrina Alcorn. She’s a working mom and author of the new book Maxed Out: American Moms on the Brink, and a longtime friend of WMAG.

You’re invited to join us at the event (via Google Hangout) on Sept. 27, 2013, at 9 p.m. EST:

  • Get exclusive tips on how to create change in the heart, home, workplace, and society at large.
  • Learn how to combat the stresses of your overbooked life.
  • Find out more about Katrina’s story, and her vision for a healthier, happier, and more productive way to live and work.

Learn more and RSVP for Working Moms on the Brink: A Conversation with Katrina Alcorn

The event is free! But we hope you’ll consider buying and reading Katrina’s book — it’s compelling and highly relevant for today’s working moms. Anyone who purchases a copy of Katrina’s book through Togather will be entered for a chance to ask a question on screen during the event.

  1. This needs to be at like 10 pm. Moms on the brink don’t have time at noon to join a conversation!! :)

    • Totally agree! I would love to join in on this conversation, but no way can do it while at work. :-(

      • OK, if we get a couple more responses like this, I will see about moving it to a different time. Are you thinking late at night is best? I was thinking lunch break was a good time, but obviously not for everyone (and I realize noon EST is not “lunch break” for all).

  2. I’m open to either. Self-employed mamas tend to have more flexibility for daytime stuff, but totally understand that if you’re maxed out, you probably don’t!

  3. sorry. did not see this before. just sent a common to katrina’s post on FB. noon could work for me perhaps but i teach in the afternoon then have the kids and dog and family supper and a tae kwon do class for one child. later in the evening such as 8 or 9 PM seems more realistic for my schedule as well.

  4. By popular demand, we have changed the date and time of this event. It will now be held on Friday, Sept. 27, at 9 p.m. I hope this makes it easier for more moms to join the conversation!
