I've spoken to over a hundred working moms at the tops of their fields. My favorite question to ask: "What was your morning like this morning?" I usually get a chuckle and then find out the real deal.
In that vein, at Uplift, we're starting a new Instagram Stories series: A Day in the Life of a Working Mom. Each week, a mom will take over our stories to document their day. They'll share their top tips and let you see the messiness, instead of the highlight reel that's the Instagram norm. In case you are curious, you can see a Day in my life here.
Today you can follow along with Ashley Martin-Golis, Director of Tech Product Management and Design at Mattel out in San Francisco. She has a 2.5-year-old and another on the way, due December. Mom warrior fact: She got hired for her current job while visibly pregnant!
Let us know what you think! And, of course, follow us on Instagram.
