Pursuit of Your Best Self Tip #4

January 15, 2024

Listen to me, and listen closely, all you stay-at-home moms – yes, you have value! Your job is probably one of the hardest and most important jobs out there. You wear many hats, and one of your major responsibilities is to mold and develop your children into productive, responsible, and contributing members of society.

Tip #4 Mom's, Calculate Your Worth!

If you are a stay-at-home mom, calculate your worth. Consider all aspects of your job as a stay-at-home mom.

To begin calculating your worth, put a monetary value on your position. I suggest you start by listing all your responsibilities. Just to get your wheels spinning, here are a few:

  • Teacher
  • Nurse
  • Activity Director
  • Cook
  • Housekeeper

Think about how much time you spend on each. Quantify it. Research the going rate for those job descriptions. Then get back to the math and calculate your salary. What are you worth? Coming from experience – you are priceless!

Putting a number to the worth of your work as a stay-at-home mom might seem daunting at first, but the salary you calculate should remind you how capable you are. You are well equipped to handle all the unforeseen circumstances in life, and you are not alone!

Pursuing Your Best Self

This tip comes from my book, Unforeseen Exit: When You Find Yourself Facing Divorce & Suddenly Single, where I tell my story of navigating an unforeseen divorce. By openly telling my story, I want to provide guidance and support to women who have found themselves in similar circumstances, so they can pursue their best self personally and financially!
