Mommy, what's your business?

As they have grown, my girls have always seen me working.

First, I worked for a big hotel company as a corporate trainer in revenue management. Half of the time I worked from home, half of the time I worked in various hotels around the country. If I was home they were small enough to not even realize I was there, I was in my office on the 3rd floor, they were with the nanny on the main floor. If I was in a hotel, they often came to visit at some point during the week. People that did not know me, knew of my children. They always wanted to meet the quads, and having them come visit, helped me alleviate my working mommy guilt. They even came with me on several trips out of town, allowing me the privilege of taking my kids to Disney and a luxury beach resort before they were two.

When I worked full time in corporate America I was fiercely competitive with my co workers. Part of my job was to teach others how to analyze competitive intelligence and strategize against it. Then I became a mom and really learned about competition or as my husband calls it Mompetition.
