Laura and Sarah open up this episode by talking about some big news -- Laura is moving (though not very far!). She discusses how they made their decision while Sarah shares her family's plans to remain renters indefinitely. Then, Laura welcomes guest Ahlia Kitwana, founder of Little Black Buddha, a new company that helps people through career transitions. Ahlia is also a mom of three and an engineer. She discusses how she's combined work and life (including her appearance in I Know How She Does It!), what nudged her to go out on her own, and her advice for others contemplating a similar move. In the Q&A, a listener writes in with a common dilemma - whether to go back to work post-baby even when childcare costs rival her salary.
