MyWorkButterfly.com Frequently Asked Questions
Who Can Join MyWorkButterfly.com?
MyWorkButterfly.com was developed exclusively for
return-to-the-workforce women (moms), including those seeking
work/life flexibility. If you are among the millions of moms trying
to achieve personal and professional aspirations, want to support

become inspired and motivated by peers and celebrities, AND seeking

employer/employee or small business owner/employee who embraces

How is MyWorkButterfly.com different than other “Mom”
MyWorkButterfly.com is a niche social networking site built on a
social networking platform. It is the only comprehensive site for
“butterflies” who are journeying to find a career path in a paid or
volunteer role. Unlike other social networking sites like iVillage,
MyWorkButterfly.com provides extensive editorial content to empower
moms to become fulfilled and includes a robust job board. Live
Chats with a career coach and psychotherapist, relevant lifestyle
editorial, resources for adult education, childcare, eldercare,
entrepreneurs, and exclusive celebrity mom interviews also set us
apart from traditional “mom” sites.

Moms share the same challenges worldwide. All Mothers strive to
achieve self fulfillment – regardless of how it is defined.
You refer to moms as “Butterflies.” What is a Butterfly?
A Butterfly is a member of the MyWorkButterfly.com Community.
Butterflies have “taken flight” on a journey to explore career
paths while learning that there does not have to be a choice
between work and family. Our Butterflies are forever in motion,
never landing on one side of the grass or the other.
