Pearls of wisdom 16th Nov 2017
Here’s what I’m loving this week:
Are you behaving badly? Watch this clip and challenge yourself Bad Behaviour - Amanda Davie - surely we can all be kinder?
The Power of the Network - I set up the Facebook Group The Career Mum less than 2 weeks ago. Since then we’ve grown to 1000 members, inspiring, coaching & supporting each other. Come and join. It’s currently open to women but we are debating that. If you would like to vote, participate here Survey
Some of you may have seen this already Indra Nooyi - her journey is awesome and I love her messages; Make the complex simple. If you’re given a job, do it well or don’t do it at all. Remain a lifelong student. Don’t lose that curiosity. Helps others rise. Greatness comes not from a position, but from helping build the future. Don’t find a job, find your calling.
What I’m not loving
The debate on the cost of childcare Childcare takes more than a financial toll I have twin babies and two children in private education. I’m sure you can imagine the cost. Early years childcare cost is a big cause of women dropping out. I don’t believe those costs can be reduced - but how can we support this stage of life and work? Interested to hear your views.
Thanks for reading and let me know if there’s something that you would like in a future blog.
