Working mothers returning to the office after birth face some unique challenges. Office buildings are often out of date and do not include spaces designed for pumping. In addition to finding time to breastfeed, they must also work with child care hours, requiring a more flexible work schedule. Whatever your unique challenges, know that you are not alone.
If you are on the fence as to whether you should invest the time to develop your brand, keep in mind this thought from Brittany Cole: “Cultivating an authentic person brand to clearly communicate your value is essential to thriving in any career. If you aren’t branding yourself, you’re giving permission for someone else to do it for you.”

I hope for your sake, that you are not like me and will use this post to help brainstorm and hopefully find in our suggestions the thoughtful gift you were hoping to give well before the deadline.
