Norcross, GA, February 21, 2009 --( Ashworth College announced today that professional life coaches Georgette E. Correa and Carmine Augustin will be guest speakers for its upcoming live online discussion -- February 25 at 3:00 pm EST.

The latest component of the Ashworth Moms Challenge, the live discussion will center on achieving a positive work/life balance and will take place on Participation is not limited to Ashworth student and alumni. Rather all working moms will be able to access the discussion from any of Ashworth College’s many social sites including Face book and MySpace.

“I love the subject the human mind and the human experience,” said Correa who makes her home in the Atlanta area and admits to being a self-help junkie. “I love having discussions with people in order to understand the "why" and "what."

“Achieving balance is about engaging in only that which holds value,” she added. “I try to help my clients authentically embrace that what is true (important) and in turn, courageously discarding what isn’t.”

The live discussion is just one of several activities available to working moms through April 30. Currently moms from all walks of life have been cultivating support networks as well as creating online diaries to chronicle their goals and successes toward achieving work/life balance.

“The average working mom is constantly challenged and as a working mother I can certainly identify,” acknowledged Connie White, Ashworth Director of Education Services. “Bringing working moms together demonstrates that we don’t have to do this alone.”

“The motivation, support and encouragement of the community will help many moms keep going – especially for those who are juggling family, work and education,” she added.
