'Julie & Julia' Inspires Thoughts of Career Second Acts

After seeing Julie & Julia then polishing off Julia Child's My Life in France and working my way through Julie Powell's book Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously (I'm not quite done with it yet), I was distinctly inspired by these two women who, quite unexpectedly, found new careers for themselves when they were in their 30s and 40s.

While I recommend the movie and the memoirs heartily, I also found the messages that they deliver are powerful reminders that your career doesn't necessarily start at age 22. Which led to me writing this Pop Culture column at Mommy Track'd about switching gears and finding yourself. Bon appetit!
