State of economy and what we are doing to affect change! - Weekly Wings

When we launched Butterfly in January 2009, we had no idea that the largest monthly job loss, 796,000, would follow some sixty days later in March of 2009. 
This extreme loss further validated the goal of Butterfly - to support and encourage one another in entrepreneurship, to create further awareness of the need for flex-hours, part-time, consulting, the opportunity to telecommute and/or whatever else it may take for women to thrive at work and at home. 

We are now a bit over Butterfly’s two-year mark and are saddened to learn that, according to President Obama, the current unemployment rate is approximately 14.1 million people (although some suspect this number to be closer to 20 million).

Now, more than ever, we urge you to scour Butterfly’s  Job Search Board as there are jobs listed from employers in many different areas that you mat qualify for, inquire about the flex opportunities listed on Butterfly’s 
homepage, employ one another, reach out to our Career EXPERT, 
Dorothy Tannahill-Moran for career advice, read the 
Career editorial and please do not lose hope.  Remember, as moms, we bring a lot of to the table!

There are nearly 6,100
