A New Way for Mothers by Louise WebsterThere is incredibly important yet untapped talent among mothers who have replaced career aspirations or creative outlets with family priority. Those women who have put their interests on hold to care for their children face a huge challenge in re-connecting with the professional world again in a way that recognizes their needs to continue to be available for their children.

“I really liked the idea of this book, having spent the last few years in a fug of not knowing what my next step would be.
I enjoyed individual chapters, I enjoyed the feeling that someone else felt like me when I had young kids (the isolation, days spent not really talking to grown ups whilst I pushed a small person on the swing for the 10,0000th time, the lack of connection with people) and I can see that Louise has an incredible brain – not only to be able to articulate all these things that I thought (and so I can only imagine a lot of other mums did too) but to get it put into book form and sell it.
This would be a really great read for a mum to buy herself one day, to dip into whilst the kid naps or is at nursery for a few hours, not just as a way of thinking about how you might move forward in the future, but also as a way to reconnect with yourself in the present.”
Book review by Dress Like A Mum
“I absolutely love your book, especially your stance on the work-life split. I am a budding content creator on a mission to improve the work-life juggle of mothers. I regularly backlink to your site. I would be honored if I could be part of your ecosystem as I grow. Thank you.”

“THANK YOU and a huge FINALLY to Louise Webster and this book. As a mom, I’ve struggled to find a personal development book geared toward the reality of motherhood. For a mother who not only has a 9-2 work day but also to connect with her own unique reality in order to find her passions. I loved how this entire book focused on the future and finding a NEW way as I was stuck in how my life was BEFORE baby. I was also stuck believing I had to miss that life and WANT to go back to it. That it was the only way. Instead of finding my new way that would make me happier. Evolve. Grow. I don’t have 100 hours a week or the desire to travel or spend my time working into the wee hours. I want pieces for myself in my life and at the same time spend time with my daughter in my way.
I’m grateful for a book that doesn’t give a prescriptive way that works for one lifestyle. Instead, Louise creates ways for you to think for yourself, connect with what you’ve been disconnected with, and be proud to execute these dreams. She shows you ways to connect with the right people for you. To make time for the things that matter to you- and not feel guilt for those you politely say “no thanks” to. She encourages you to always be learning – it’s a basic need that we forget as a mother.
All in all, this book allowed me to do the work to find what works for me. My new way. Not hers or his. Mine.
