Picture this: You're a career woman that has it all. A wonderful apartment all to yourself. A successful career in which you've made it to the next level. Fun friends and great social life that you plan on your time. And now you've just fallen in love with the man of your dreams AND HIS THREE KIDS! As women begin to marry later and later in life, after they've achieved success in their careers, it's happening more often that their grooms already have children.
And as Jacquelyn Fletcher explains in A CAREER GIRL'S GUIDE TO BECOMING A STEPMOM, these career women have already learned the skills that need to take on the challenge. This fresh take on stepfamilies offers advice from career women that have already taken the stepfamily plunge and explains that those same communication, leadership, and relationship skills she used to get her promotion can also be an asset when adjusting to a new family. In A CAREER GIRL'S GUIDE TO BECOMING A STEPMOM, Fletcher builds on a career woman's strengths and encourages her to use them to her advantage.You have an exciting, fulfilling job. You've fallen in love with the man of your dreams-and met his three kids! Now what? Jacquelyn B. Fletcher shows how any professional woman turned wife and instant stepmother can build on the skills she employs at work-organization, team-building, goal-setting, and planning-to succeed at home in her new role as stepmom. Drawing on the latest research, her own experiences, and those of other real-life stepmothers, Fletcher offers advice, hope, encouragement, and much-needed answers to common conundrums, including: Why don't I have control over my own schedule? What kind of relationship do I want with my stepkids? What if I want to have a baby of my own? How do we create a budget that feels fair if I make more money than my husband does? A Career Girl's Guide to Becoming a Stepmom is essential reading for the professional woman who has it all-and then suddenly has more than she expected.
