About the Book
Becoming A Chief Home Officer provides guidance for moms choosing to shift from the workplace to the career of full-time motherhood, tackling the “whys” and the “hows” of this transition that strike at the core of a woman’s concept of self, accomplishment, and worth.
Allie Pleiter knows firsthand the culture shock, surprises, joys, and uncertainties of leaving the workplace to stay at home and raise children. With disarming wit and a refreshing personal transparency,
Becoming a Chief Home Officer constructs a fresh new “benefits package” for the profession of motherhood and offers a wide array of practical advice from “labor relations” in averting strikes and tantrums, to new perspectives in seeking “raises, praises, and promotions.”
Three distinct audiences will find help and hope in these pages: the working woman considering this transition, the newly-at-home mom adjusting to culture shock, and the “approaching burnout,” been-home-awhile mom struggling with frustration or dissatisfaction. Pleiters witty admission of mistakes and mishaps evokes knowing grins and empathetic laughter to punctuate her wonderfully practical advice.
