Best Business Advice: "After I had my first daughter and was about to go back to work 'part time,' a former colleague and mother of two told me that 'part time' doesn't work. She said, 'You need to have full-time child care available because there will be times when you have to work full-time hours. There will also be times when you can take more time off to spend with your family, but you have to be flexible.' She was absolutely right."
