Freeing up more money for the things that matter most

*contributed collaborative post

As many people have observed throughout history, it’s really difficult to imagine ever having “too much money.”

No matter what your particular situation is in life, whether you’re single, or have a family who depends on you, it’s inevitable that you will find yourself feeling – at least sometimes – that it would really be great if you’d have a bit more income, and a few less expenses.

Returning to work – habits to help make working work for you

*collaborative post

This spring, I am making the daunting step back into the world of being a working Mum. It’s something I’m both excited and terrified about for a whole spectrum of reasons, but the number one worry on mind is how on earth I’m going to stay on top of everything life throws at us as a family of four, with a smaller window of time and having to share my focus between home life and career.

Returning to work – Who will love my children

During my time as a stay at home Mum, the theoretical idea of returning to work has been a constant conversation in my mind. If I were to go for it, what would I do about the kids? How would they cope? Who would take care of them? How much would it cost? The questions of course were never truly answered because it’s very difficult to conclude anything until you actually get a job. It’s a chicken and egg situation which didn’t really need an answer. Until now.

Finding employment with no upper skill limit

*contributed collaborative post

Some people find pleasure in a job that offers plenty of money and accolades. Some find pleasure in work that is easy, relaxing and low-tempo. Some, perhaps the people who have come to intelligently realize the benefit in always improving, find pleasure in working hard and developing in the best manner possible, and finding employment that is sure to never prevent them from improving.

I got the job…

Last autumn, four years after being made redundant, I decided 2019 was going to be the year I looked to return to work. That said, I had anticipated an entire series of blog posts about seeking flexible employment, appealing to my network for any kind of part time role which might fit the bill and scratching my head looking for an organisation or workplace whose ethos fitted mine.

A huge number of people spend a huge amount of time dreaming about how amazing it would be to one day start their own business.

Feel the fear and do it anyway; Returning to work after four years as a stay at home Mum

In the autumn of last year it dawned on me that the elusive moment I believed would come one day, was bubbling up inside of me, beginning to niggle. A feeling I always spoke about when people asked me ‘what are you going to do about work?’. I always answered that I’d know when the time was right, and until then would continue to live in the moment, not worrying about what may or may not happen in the future.

What if being Mum isn’t enough? The future, career and motherhood

The landscape of motherhood is forever changing isn’t it? As we approach October, and our youngest daughter’s fourth birthday, there’s been a wind of change in the air around here.
