In this episode Liz O’Donnell talks about older mothers who are juggling a job, dependent children and aging parents. I refer to this segment of the mum market as The Invisible Women. They claim to be cashed up with nothing to buy. I believe they represent one of the biggest opportunities within the Mum market and Liz and I discuss what brands are missing.
Liz O’Donnell is the founder of WorkingDaughter.com, a community for women balancing caring for an aging parent and their career. Working Daughter offers caregiver coaching services, a membership program with access to tools, resources, webinars, and support groups, and a thriving Facebook community. Liz’s highly shared article in The Atlantic, ‘The Crisis Facing America’s Working Daughters,” sparked a national conversation on the topic of family caregiving.
An award-winning marketing executive, Liz has worked with clients in technology, finance, consumer products and professional services. Her specialties are marketing to women and creating content strategies that align to marketing objectives and drive business results.
Liz is the author of Mogul, Mom & Maid: The Balancing Act of the Modern Woman, a book that picks up where other books leave off – understanding the impact women’s personal lives have on their careers and the ways business can support working women. Her second book, Working Daughter, will be published in 2019.
