Becoming A Remote Work Pro (With Kids)
I’m writing to share the details of the Women in Leadership (WIL) Foundation Ottawa online event I’ll be speaking at this Thursday, May 7th from 7 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. EDT (witching hour I know but bring the kids or RSVP at the link below to receive the recording).
I’ll be talking about ‘Mixing Babies With Business: Becoming A Remote Work Pro‘ based on my experience as a remote worker and parent over the past few years.
QUESTIONS for you:
- How are you spending your time and energy these days?
- Any tips for other parents looking to carve out a flexible work routine while caring for their children?
Please comment on this post if you’d like to share with my Babies, Business + Breakfast™ community and the WIL Ottawa audience.
My REMOTE WORK back story:
I started working remotely in 2014 while living abroad, before having kids. Then I became a parent in 2016, stopped travelling (and sleeping) as much and had to experiment with different ways to make flexible work actually WORK for me.
There is no ‘work Amy’ and ‘parent Amy’. I am one person, with many facets, responsibilities and little separation between my home and work environments, as many are experiencing right now.
This quick 30-minute session is going to cover three key things I have found helpful over the years, which I apply to the personal and professional areas of my life.
I’ve used them while:
- remote working in different continents and timezones before kids;
- going through three pregnancies, two births and a miscarriage;
- raising two kids under the age of four;
- balancing daycare drop off, pick up and other life admin;
- doing contract corporate and client consulting work;
- creating this community, Babies, Business + Breakfast™; and
- writing, publishing and marketing my first book.
You can implement them straight away and adjust based on your–and your family’s–needs.
