I have been a working Mom for the past 16 odd years. Maybe because I have seen my Mom do it and do it well, I have not thought there was an alternative. Aside from the economic aspect of being working Mom that really works well for us, living and raising kids now days, is no joke. My husband needed to go abroad for us to make ends meet.
This is what makes this the H.O.P.E Summit so interesting for me. It is toted as an alternative to working in an office where most of the time to I am away from my kids. As much as I try to balance everything and be completely part of their everyday lives, I feel there could be much more I could do.
Bestselling author and inspirational speaker Teresa Gumap-as Dumadag is organizing a parenting event dubbed as Hands-On Parents while Earning or H.O.P.E. Summit on August 8, 2015. It will be from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM at the AVR of PLDT TelTech Building, Boni Avenue, Mandaluyong City.

Gumap-as Dumadag, who is an expert in designing programs used locally and abroad and in helping people grow and achieve their goals, will be the main speaker and facilitator of the workshop.

“Being able to work with a lot of flexibility has been one of the biggest blessings I have received in life,” Gumap-as Dumadag shares. “I was able to witness all my children’s milestones, personally take care of them and breastfeed them because I am home almost all the time. I am able to shape my children’s character and educate them while pursuing my passions and earning through these passions. I want to share what I have learned through the years to my fellow parents so that they too can spend ample time with their children while contributing to the family income. This is my way of helping families grow and remain intact.”
